Grank Bank on Advent III

Charlie Cox

A nativity play and a gift to help those in need

On the third Sunday of Advent, the candle of joy was lit on the Advent wreath. There was great joy at St. Alban’s church in Grand Bank as the Children’s Christmas program took place; a time of fellowship followed the worship, which also included a visit from Santa Claus.

At the end of the service, our Sunday School leader, Ms. Chelsea Bryan, presented the rector, the Rev’d Charlie Cox, with $1000 to be forwarded to PWRDF. These funds were collected over the past year through their weekly outreach baskets accepting nickels and dimes from members of the congregation.

This donation will be used to purchase:

• 2 storage tanks for clean water ($200)

• 2 water maintenance systems ($150)

• 1 solar pump for clean water ($100)

• Train an indigenous midwife ($50)

• Provide 2 families with an indigenous midwife visit before the birth of their baby ($100)

• Provide a family with a water carrying donkey ($140)

• Provide 3 goats to healthcare workers ($120)

• 3 solar powered incubators so community members can buy chicken eggs and sell newborn chicks ($75)

• Humanitarian Relief Support ($50)

St. Alban’s congregation are so thankful for the work of the Sunday school, and we wish to say a heartfelt thank you to their leader, Ms. Chelsea Bryan, and all who continue to support the youth of our church.

Thanks be to God!
