MISSION CAPSULE: When Thoko’s husband left her to care for their six children alone, she felt like she was sinking. But support PWS&D was providing in her Malawian village helped her rise above challenging circumstances. Thoko joined a self-help group – an organized way to come together with women in her village to save money and distribute loans. With the loan she received, Thoko bought farming supplies to grow more food. After selling the produce she harvested she began earning enough to pay school fees for her children. Soon, she could afford supplies to repair the roof of her home and was also able to purchase a goat and a pig, which will be an additional source of income. Today, little trace of that hopelessness is left. Thoko feels empowered – and it all began with a loan.

MONDAY, JULY 29th, 2019 - Theology on Tap finished discussing Calvin@500 this past Monday. Our new book To Set the Captives Free: Liberation Theology in Canada will not be arriving until sometime next week. Therefore, we will not be meeting on Monday July 29th. We had planned not to meet on the Civic Holiday so our next get together at the Beecher will be August 12th. As usual, we have ordered a couple of extras – so if you’d like to join us, or if you’d like to read the book on your own, please speak to Erin or M.J.
