Mennonite Disaster Service congratulates ALL MDS VOLUNTEERS, past and present for continuing to lift up disaster survivors! Last week MDS was named the ‘2015 National Member of the Year’ by the 120 member consortium of National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) in the USA. Over and over MDS participants were thanked and affirmed for the outstanding work, good spirit and collaborative nature of MDS volunteers. Many specifically commented that they appreciate ‘the Canadians’ who come and serve with MDS in the USA. Thanks to all who have served, prayed for and given of their time to make MDS a respected and appreciated organization faithfully carryingout a small part of God’s mission.

Families are waiting and MDS leadership is in place, but we need weekly volunteers now and through the summer to rebuild houses that were flooded. Check your schedules, invite your friends and spend a week helping someone move home. Call 1-800-241-8111 to schedule.

Nobody’s Child by Austin Boyd. For Laura Ann McGehee, her body represents the one remaining financial resource that can save the family farm. For Sophia McQuistion, Laura Ann’s unusual sacrifice fulfills her own dream of having a child. Weaving together bioethics and faith is the question we can no longer ignore: Just because we can do something: should we?

Understanding People by Dr. Larry Crabb. In three parts, this book first points us to the Bible as our source of insight into perplexing heart issues. Then it helps us come to grips with our brokenness as God’s image-bearers, and it shows how we can reclaim our ability to reflect him in our growth toward maturity and healed relationships.
