MISSION CAPSULES: On Earth Day – April 22nd – we reflect on the uniqueness of God’s creation and the ecosytems that nourish us. Unfortunately, contributions to greenhouse gas emissions continue to take a toll on the planet’s health and trigger extreme weather patterns such as prolonged drought and heavy rains. These weather patterns can make it difficult for small scale farmers in the global south to meet their food needs and earn liveable incomes. The need to adapt to these challenges is now a reality and PWS&D is providing support. In Guatemala, Haiti, Malawi and Nicaragua, PWS&D is empowering farmers to learn sustainable, environmentally-friendly farming techniques that both heal the earth and improve crop yields.
