Mission Moments

Medical ministry in Nepal

We serve, Jesus heals” is the motto of Tansen Mission Hospital in western Nepal, which serves a population of one million. Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing support Dr. Nicholaus Bauman, a surgeon appointed to the United Mission to Nepal. As part of the Tansen Hospital medical and surgical team, made up of Nepali and international physicians, Nick responds to referrals for gynecology, urology, and abdominal problems. Nick also teaches post-graduate students enrolled in the Medical Doctorate in General Practice. He shares, “Our faith community has always stressed the importance of mission, particularly the sense that our lives are not our own, but are gifts, and that we are entrusted by God to be stewards of this gift.” Nick is joined in Nepal by his wife Becky and their four children.

Heavenly Father, nourish us with your word of Life and make us one with you in Love and Prayer. May we know your peace and love, removing distractions that take our gaze away from your glory. May we quiet the noise that pulls us from adoration from you and may we see your goodness and glory in this time after Easter. We pray for those in need, especially for Dorothy Clow, Heather Ford, Louise Weeks, David MacIntyre, Eddy Dykerman,Wendell Nicholson, Gwen Henry, Aneila River- Watts, Heather Hickox, Phyllis Weeks, and Elwin Corbett. May the words of our mouths and the actions of our hands all bring Glory, Honour and Praise unto Christ. Amen

Mission Moments

International Day of Families (May 15)

When families are able to form safe and nurturing relationships, meet their basic needs and lift each other up, it can have a significant impact on a country’s well-being and development. On the International Day of Families, we reflect on the importance of responding to families facing hunger, poverty and injustice across the globe. The compassionate youth at Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Beaconsfield, QC know how important it is to empower vulnerable families to achieve their full potential. The group filled a piggy bank with $144 for PWS&D’s Farming for the Future Sunday School Challenge, which equips rural families in Guatemala with seeds, tools and training to improve their food security and nutrition.

PWS&D connects Canadians to the needs of families across the globe

FAITH @ HOME

Read: John 15: 9-17

Question for Reflection: In our Gospel lesson this week, Jesus speaks of his extreme love for us, and calls us his friends.  How does thinking of Christ as our friend and the one who loves us –or as our Lord and Master—affect our daily living?

Pray: Holy One, as I move through this week, keep me mindful of your love for me, for others, and for the world.  Amen.
