CHURCH NEWS –Aug. 20

THOUGHTS & SMILES:
The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray:
'Take only ONE .. God is watching..'
 
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.
A child had written a note, 'Take all you want. God is watching the apples..'

CHURCH NEWS –July 28

  The last wishes of Alexander the Great.........
On his death bed, Alexander summoned his army generals and told them his three ultimate wishes:
1. The best doctors should carry his coffin ...
2. The wealth he has accumulated (money, gold, precious stones) should be scattered along the procession to the
       cemetery ....
3. His hands should be let loose, so they hang outside the coffin for all to see!!

One of his generals who was surprised by these unusual requests asked Alexander to explain.
Here is what Alexander the Great had to say:

1."I want the best doctors to carry my coffin to demonstrate that in the face of death, even the best doctors in the world have no power to heal .."
2. "I want the road to be covered with my treasure so that everybody sees that material wealth acquired on earth, will stay  
     on earth.."
3. I want my hands to swing in the wind, so that people understand that we come to this world empty handed and we leave  
    this world empty handed after the most precious treasure of all is exhausted, and that is:   TIME.

We do not take to our grave any material wealth. TIME is our most precious treasure because it is LIMITED. We can produce more wealth, but we cannot produce more time.
When we give someone our time, we actually give a portion of our life that we will never take back. Our time is our life!
The best present that you can give to your family and friends is your TIME.

May God grant YOU plenty of  TIME,  to share with all.

Diocesan Refugee Fund Update:
Most of you will have seen the pieces in the Saskatchewan Anglican on the Diocesan sponsorship of the Iraqi family who are related to Marleen Abbo.  Thanks to all who have already donated to the Diocesan Refugee Fund. I am writing this notice to the attention of your parishioners to jog the memories of those who plan to contribute to the Refugee Fund but have not gotten around to it because of the summer holidays. 
Thanks,
Ralph Paragg
Diocesan Refugee Coordinator

Parishioners may make a one-time donation through their home parishes (envelopes are on the back bookcase) for forwarding to Diocesan Refugee Fund or send their cheques directly to the Diocese of Qu'Appelle (Memo: Refugee Fund), c/o Anglican Diocese of Qu'Appelle, 1501 College Avenue, Regina, S4P 1B8.

Diocesan Council agreed in its March Meeting to sponsor five family members of Marleen Abbo, wife of Safaa Mousa, whom we sponsored in honour PWRDF50 in December 2011.  Marleen's family had to flee the Mosul area when ISIS took over the city and surrounding area.  Last August they fled to Turkey where they had friends.  The family members her father Saeed (retired) her brother Amjad, age 24, her sister-in-law Rawan, age 22, and their children Sarita, age 3 1/2, and Simon, age 2.  UNHCR has recognized them as genuine refugees.  The Diocese needs to raise approximately $ 20,000 in addition to the resources we have to support the family for one year. Let’s make this a success!

PWRDF Announces $15,000 initial funding for Saskatchewan Wild Fires
Here is information that I received regarding the PWRDF funding for the Saskatchewan Wild Fires.  Individuals may contribute through PWRDF. 

“As Friday, [July 3, 201] there were 5,588 evacuees due to forest fires,” said Bishop Michael Hawkins of the Diocese of Saskatchewan in a message to PWRDF.  “On Friday night, fire penetrated the Montreal Lake Cree nation and nine houses were burned.”  The number of evacuees has grown to over 12,000, with people being sheltered as far away as Regina or Cold Lake, Alberta.  PWRDF, in consultation with Bishop Hawkins, has announced an initial grant of $15,000 to the Prince Albert Grand Council (PAGC), a tribal council representing 12 First Nations with about 30,000 members. PAGC  is providing meals, clothing, and shelter to supplement the Red Cross’ efforts, as the needs have overwhelmed the Red Cross’ capacity to respond.  PAGC is also helping to transport evacuees and to provide medical care to evacuees as needed, and is supporting the firefighters who are battling the wild fires.
You can support PWRDF’s relief efforts in northern Saskatchewan: Online at http://pwrdf.org/donate.  By Phone: Contact: Jennifer Brown, 416-924-9192 ext. 355 or    1-866-308-7973.  Please do not send your credit card number by email or fax.  By Mail:  Please make cheques payable to “PWRDF”, mark them for “Saskatchewan Wildfires” and send them to: The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund, The Anglican Church of Canada, 80 Hayden Street, Toronto, Ontario  M4Y 3G2

PWRDF Announce $17 million project for maternal and child health
The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is pleased to announce a new joint program with the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD). PWRDF will contribute $2,654,612 over five years towards the $17,697,412 project that will focus on maternal and child health in 350 villages in Burundi, Mozambique, Rwanda and Tanzania.
“PWRDF is deeply satisfied that DFATD has approved an ambitious proposal to scale up the work we are presently doing with them in three countries—Burundi, Mozambique and Tanzania–and adding Rwanda. At the three-year mark in our current DFATD programs, we are seeing many of the five-year results we were aiming at, due to our partnership with strong local partner organizations who know their countries, their cultures and their people,” said Adele Finney, Executive Director of PWRDF. “As we accompany partners, and they accompany vulnerable people making lasting changes in their communities, we see more mothers and babies living and thriving through pregnancy, childbirth and the first years of life. We see siblings, fathers and families growing their own food with confidence.”
The program will reach 3,545,315 women of reproductive age, newborns, children under 5 and men, including post-natal care for women, and vaccinations, vitamin A and enough good, healthy food for children to grow to their potential.
Health workers and trained birth attendants will be trained to dispense accurate advice on ante- and post-natal care, promote healthy habits, provide basic health care, identify high risk pregnancies and make referrals to government-run medical facilities. Health centres will be equipped with essential equipment, dispensaries, nurses’ houses, and expectant mothers’ houses will be built. Rapid and affordable transportation to medical facilities, including bicycle and motorcycle ambulances will be provided. The project will provide improved access to clean water and nutritious food- the basics of good health. Village leadership and local communities will be mobilized and equipped to continue the work, and to ensure gender rights.
PWRDF is proud of its more than 40 year working relationship with DFATD, and looks forward to continuing to work together with partners including Village Health Works (Partners in Health) in Burundi, the Anglican Diocese of Masasi in Tanzania, the Association of Community Health (EHALE) in Mozambique, and Inshuti Mu Buzima (Partners in Health) in Rwanda, to improve the lives of mothers and children throughout their respective regions

THOUGHTS & SMILES:
  THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD
 
A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible - Psalm 23.  She gave the youngsters a month to learn the chapter.  Little Rick was excited about the task - but he just couldn't remember the Psalm.  After much practice, he could barely get past the first line.  On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Ricky was so nervous.  When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my Shepherd, and that's all I need to know."

Diocesan Refugee Fund
Diocesan Council agreed in its March Meeting to sponsor five family members of Marleen Abbo, wife of Safaa Mousa, whom we sponsored in honour PWRDF50 in December 2011.  Marleen's family had to flee the Mosul area when ISIS took over the city and surrounding area.  Last August they fled to Turkey where they had friends.  The family members her father Saeed (retired) her brother Amjad, age 24, her sister-in-law Rawan, age 22, and their children Sarita, age 3 1/2, and Simon, age 2.  UNHCR has recognized them as genuine refugees.  The Diocese needs to raise approximately $ 20,000 in addition to the resources we have to support the family for one year. Parishioners may make a one-time donation through their home parishes (envelopes are on the back bookcase) for forwarding to Diocesan Refugee Fund or send their cheques directly to the Diocese of Qu'Appelle (Memo: Refugee Fund), c/o Anglican Diocese of Qu'Appelle, 1501 College Avenue, Regina, S4P 1B8. 
Let’s make this a success!

PWRDF Providing Relief after Nepal Earthquake

-Prayer
Loving God, we come to you trusting in your mercy and knowing that your steadfast love endures forever. Look with mercy on those who are harmed or displaced. Give them strength to meet the days ahead, your peace which passes all understanding and new hope in the resurrection. Move in those who are able to give aid, that we may be your hands and heart on earth. Be with all who offer assistance, may your Spirit uphold them. As you have made water a sign of your kingdom, and of cleansing and rebirth, grant your people vision to see a new life on the other side of disaster.
To you be given all honour and praise, through Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord. Amen
