MISSION CAPSULE: “As a family, we try to take all the necessary measures, like covering our nose when sneezing, avoiding shaking hands or going places where there might be large crowds. For many of the families in our community, it’s not possible to acquire protection materials like face masks, gloves, hand sanitizer or cleaning materials due to rising prices in the market. We are so thankful for all of you and the help you bring to our community.” Like many in Nicaragua, Maria struggles to access proper protection materials and cleaning products due to the COVID 19 pandemic. PWS&D, through local partners, is helping people like Maria and her whole community, receive hygiene and sanitation items, ensuring they are prepared to safely face the pandemic.

NOTE: The Clerk and Session of Beaches would like to thank everyone for their input into our Annual General Meeting that took place last Sunday. A special thank you should go to our Treasurer, Julie Erickson, who has worked tirelessly over the past year in keeping us on a financial even keel as we have had to deal with loss of income and the various government funds set up to help organisations through these trying times.

Love wholeheartedly, be surprised, give thanks and praise. Then you will discover the fullness of your life. Brother David Steindl-Rast

Most of the houses in France are made of plaster of Paris.

The spinal column is a long bunch of bones. The head sits on the top and you sit on the bottom.

Iron was discovered because someone smelt it.

Syntax is all the money collected at the church from sinners.

Beethoven wrote music even though he was deaf. He was so deaf he wrote loud music. He took long walks in the forest even when everyone was calling for him. Beethoven expired in 1827 and later died for this.

Have a good week – stay safe. MB
