MISSION CAPSULE: Inspired by God’s promise of abundant life, PWS&D envisions a sustainable, compassionate and just world. On February 2nd, we celebrate PWS&D and the meaningful work being done around the world to bring hope to those experiencing poverty, hunger and oppression. Farmers and their families in Haiti, Nicaragua and Pakistan are learning innovative farming practices to help cope with a changing climate and rise above hunger. Maternal and child mortality rates continue to decrease in Malawi and Afghanistan. Refugees have received support overseas and been welcomed to new homes in Canada. These stories of transformation are possible because of the generosity of Presbyterians across Canada. Thank you!.

SMILES:

I don’t suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it!

I used to have a handle on life, but it broke!

Don’t take life too seriously; no one gets out alive!

You’re just jealous because the voices only talk to me!

I’m not a complete idiot – some parts are just missing!

The gene pool could use a little chlorine!

Have a good week - MB
