Sharing our daily bread, Covenant World Relief
Sudan Agriculture Project
Mathew Moses, the project director, has requested help from CWR in funding for water pipelines that will pump (water to the) irrigation system, a septic tank, and containers for storing the seeds harvested. The continued success of this project will go a long way towards relieving hunger in the MalakaL community.
Kyrgyzstan Animal Loan
Through a locally led and created project families in remote villages of Kyrgyzstan are able to escape the cycle of poverty and find long-term and sustainable ways of providing for their family. This animal loan project will supplement a Covenant World Relief project from 2005 that has successfully served over two hundred families and has grown to incorporate mearly 550 animals. However, the central herd from the earlier project is aging and there is increasing demand from other communities who would like to participate in the project because of its proven success. Our donations will help purchase new sheep and goats for the project.
The Covenant World Relief Sudan Agriculture Project in Malakal in Southern Sudan has been supported by donation from our congregation. Through the CWR agriculture project we have provided seed farm equipment and training to members of the participating Covent congregations, most returning in recent years from refugee camps. The project has been quite successful, becoming nearly self sustaining. Produce from their fields has even been distributed to other villages during times of flooding. We are currently financially supporting them in the purchase of agriculture land from the government.
”How does God’s love abide in anyone who has the world’s goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses to help? Little children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.” —1 John 3:17–18
You Can Help
If you are interested in participating, simply write the word “hunger” on the back of the welcome card in the bulletin. Any checks should be made out to Community Covenant Church, designated CCC World Hunger Project and placed in the offering. On the second Sunday of each month, a time will be set aside for prayer and accepting donations to help our brothers and sisters who are hungry around the world.
We envision a threefold process:
1. Regular prayer both individual and congregational
2. Fasting on an individual basis as a symbolic way of acknowledging world hunger
3. Donations, perhaps of an equal amount spent on pet food or a meal in a restaurant
We hope you will prayerfully consider participating in one or all three parts of this project. If so please write “Hunger” on the back of the welcome card in your bulletin and place it in the offering plate.

Hunger is a world-wide, year round problem.
