KIVA LOANS IN APRIL
SIX LOANS TO SIX PEOPLE FROM SIX COUNTRIES. CHECK OUT THE DIVERSITY OF THE LOANS AND THE COUNTRIES. THANKS TO THE KIVA TEAM FOR THEIR EFFORTS
Lizandro's story Lizandro is 20 years old from Bolivia. He is single and has no children. He lives with his parents in a rural community. Lizandro is a farmer, and he already has three years of experience in country life. During this time, he has succeeded in making alliances with some dealers from the markets, and he says that things aren't going badly for him. Lizandro wants a loan for the purchase of cattle in order to be able to offer more meat to his business partners.
Vasita's story Although Vasita’s plot may be only a few hectares, like all farmers she must fertilize it well at planting time. To underpin a good yield, it is essential her crops are protected from disease and pests once they’re growing. She requests a loan to buy good-quality stems of kava plant, some manure, pesticides and farming tools that will enhance and protect their crops. She is from Fiji , and she hopes they will get a solid harvest that will at least maintain her family’s subsistence living.
Humoroy's story This woman's name is Humoroy. She is from the Jomi District. In Tajikistan Humoroy is 63 years old. She lives with her four children. She decided to take out a loan and concurrently start a new business in the field of livestock breeding. She wants to raise cattle. Humoroy has all of the conditions for her planned business; she has livestock feed and a cattle barn. However, because she invested a lot of her money in the construction of the barn and the purchase of the livestock feed, she does not have enough money to buy cattle. She is asking that you help her buy a calf so that she can start her business.

GREEN PRAYER BOOK
Most, but not all of our Parishioners may be familiar with our Green Prayer Book. On Easter it made it's reappearance on the table in the foyer. Our tradition, as established in 2013 was to leave the book out before liturgies so that people can write intentions, prayers of thanks or whatever the spirit moves them to share, and then bring it up with the Gifts and place it on the altar. It then becomes part of our prayers that we offer during the consecration.
We hope that everyone will take the time at some point to add to the book. We have included in the pictures a sample from the first page of the book. The first entry was made nine years ago on May 26, 2013. We are looking forward to many more years of offering prayers.

TITHING RECIPIENT FOR APRIL 2023
Moveable Feast has served as a beacon of light for over thirty years, bringing healthy food and compassion to those struggling with chronic illness. The organization was founded during the height of the AIDS epidemic in 1989, to provide food, hope, and love to those living with HIV/AIDS, many of whom were members of the LGBTQ+ community. Moveable Feast has continued to support underserved and vulnerable communities in Baltimore, while also expanding its reach across Maryland and serving people with illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Food is at the heart of what we do, and our work has become even more important as more people in our community face food insecurity

Join Us for Lectio Divina Via Zoom
- The Gospel for the following Sunday is read three times.
- The first time it is read we listen for a word or phrase that seems to speak directly to us. After a brief period of silence we have an opportunity to share that particular word or phrase that spoke to our heart with those present. (Sharing is always optional).
- The second time we hear the Gospel we listen and reflect on what God may be saying to us through our particular word or phrase. After another short period of silent reflection, anyone who chooses is encouraged to share his/her thoughts.
- The third time we hear and listen to the Gospel reading we consider how God may be calling each of us to act through our word or phrase. After a final period of silent reflection, all who choose can share his/her reflections.
