All We Can – Methodist Relief and Development (MRDF)

“Do all the good you can….” said John Wesley.  As you may have heard, earlier this month MRDF changed its name to All We Can, the Methodist relief and development partner.  Our new name reflects the renewal of our commitment to do all we can to help those who need us most.  With the continued generosity and prayerful support of Methodist churches and individuals, we want to have a greater impact on people in the world’s poorest communities in the future.

This harvest, will you help All We Can to nurture potential in some of the world’s poorest communities?

How will your church be celebrating Harvest this year?  Harvest provides a great opportunity to celebrate the earth that God created and the produce it brings.  It is also a time when we can think about people in the world whose situations are different from our own, and how we might be able to help them to have better harvests.

At All We Can – we see God-given potential in everyone.  By supporting our Harvest Appeal, your church can help us to nurture that potential in places where the need is greatest – by investing in partnerships that improve quality of life and create positive, long-term change.

Our free harvest resources for churches, groups and schools will help make your harvest celebrations both memorable and meaningful.  This year, they focus on communities in Burundi, East Africa, where people are rebuilding their lives after a damaging civil war.  All We Can’s local partners are providing people with tools to farm their land, and fertiliser and seeds to make their harvests fruitful.  The resources feature inspiring stories of improvement and hope, and offer the opportunity to respond practically through giving to All We Can’s Harvest Appeal.

Gifts given to All We Can this harvest will mean that some of the world’s poorest people have enough food, not just this year, but for years to come.

The All We Can website – www.allwecan.org.uk – will tell you more about the harvest resources available, and how to order them.  They include prayers, sermon notes, a talk for all ages, interactive activities, a short film, ideas for school assemblies, campaign action cards and more.

I hope you will do all you can to help us to make a difference in some of the world’s poorest communities this harvest time.

Maurice Adams – Chief Executive of All We Can
