A Ministry of Presence

When 35cm of rain fell over 5 days in Malawi in March, the presence of PCC mission staff was invaluable. Vivian and Blair Bertrand gave us first-hand accounts of the devastation experienced by over 900,000 Malawians. They recounted the harsh realities, faced especially by subsistence farmers who lost their entire crops. They grieved together with their friends and colleagues when roofs collapsed, walls caved in, latrines were washed away, and family members died. Amid the darkness, Vivian, working with Churches Action in Relief and Development (CARD), has been busy writing proposals for CARD's relief efforts. Proposals include providing emergency items such as food, plastic sheets, cooking pots, water buckets and chlorine to treat water and agricultural support to help people reclaim their livelihoods after the loss of crops and livestock. Presbyterians Sharing supports the Bertrands whose presence opens a window into this widespread tragedy.
