Advent Reflection

Empowered & Empowering Women: An Advent Reflection on Women in the Bible from Eve to Mary

The Reverend Robert Mitchell, parish priest of St. Olave’s Anglican Church in the Diocese of Toronto, connects stories of courage and resilience exemplified by women in the Bible with stories of women in PWRDF programs. When you subscribe to our free resource, you will receive an email every morning during Advent with a scripture reading, a reflection and prayer. You can also read the resource on a screen in the above format, or click on the arrow on the left above the image if you would like to download and print the resource.

Children’s resource

Advent Lives … and is Changing Lives

NEW: This year we introduce a resource for children that teaches the Christmas story through the animals in our World of Gifts guide. Cows, goats, sheep, even guinea fowl all play a role in this resource. Children will learn about the importance of PWRDF’s livestock program to food security in Mozambique, Tanzania and Rwanda. This resource can be used in Sunday Schools, Youth Groups or at home, in whole or in part. Includes stories, candle lighting prayers, activities and crafts. Flip through the resource below, and download by clicking the download arrow in the top left corner of the box.

Download these handy and fascinating Factsheets for each of the countries in which the livestock program operates, featuring recipes and beneficiary stories.

Download prayers and story resource for Christmas Eve (featuring Ongoza the sheep!)
