article by Archdeacon Charlene Taylor for the June issue of Anglican Life:
The work of the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund depends on many individuals to enable its life changing ministry to happen. If you pray, if you share the good news of PWRDF’s work or if you financially contribute—then you are a friend of PWRDF.
True friends depend on each other, and being a friend of PWRDF is no different. As a friendship develops we learn more about each other and the more we learn the deeper the friendship grows.
Have you ever wondered about how the ministry of PWRDF works?
When you give or fundraise for PWRDF do you know the impact your contribution makes?
Do you know the impact PWRDF is making in the lives of others?
Are you seeking to enhance your friendship with PWRDF? If so, come and join us!
As friends of PWRDF the three Dioceses of Newfoundland and Labrador invite you to a Day of Sharing and Learning to celebrate 60 years of commitment and connection.
Come and learn about: partnerships, development programs, emergency response, work in Cuba and Tanzania, youth engagement and much more.
This day event is being offered at no financial cost to your—just your time and love for PWRDF. We will gather at All Saints’, Conception Bay South June 8th from 9am to 3:30pm.

Jesus said, I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know the master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. (John 15:15)
If you are a present friend of PWRDF, or if you are new to PWRDF and its ministry, come and share in this event. May we be about the Father’s business in fellowship and friendship!
