MISSION CAPSULE: In Guatemala, Celedonia Felix was in charge of her family’s farm, performing most of the agricultural and livestock work. But Celedonia was feeling overwhelmed, and the family’s farm was starting to suffer. One day she attended an agriculture training workshop provided by PWS&D’s local partner. At the workshop, the mother of seven learned the importance of working as a team. Sharing what she learned with her husband, the two started to work together on their land. Eventually, the couple’s children also started to help out. Today, the family jointly carries out activities such as planting, separating husks and harvesting. For Celedonia, “teamwork is the key to success and preserving family harmony and happiness.”

SOME GOOD NEWS: Polish Javelinist Maria Andrejczyk auctioned her Tokyo Olympic silver medal for $125,000 USD to help send a baby to Stanford University for heart surgery. Zabka, a chain of Polish Supermarkets, submitted the winning bid – and then gave the medal back to Maria.

Beaches Church Admin Job Description

ODD STUFF:

I didn’t make it to the gym today. That makes five years in a row!

The biggest lie I tell myself is: “I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it”

Last year I joined a support group for procrastinators. We haven’t met yet.

That’s it, that’s all I’ve got.

Have a good week - MB
