God's Word goes forth in the midst of chaos!
As our US-based leaders daily work with our in-country national leaders, we have learned bitter sweet stories of how these leaders, pastor and lay leaders are caring for their communities and church families during shelter-at-home.
They are so thankful for the financial assistance you have given to help them provide food to the starving and medicine for hypertension and diabetes. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a part of meeting these critical needs. As our national leaders give the food and medicine, they are praying and sharing the Gospel. In cases where they are able, they are providing Bibles. One pastor in eastern part of the world has said he needs 20,000 - 50,000 Bibles to distribute with food. God's Word goes forth in the midst of chaos!
In so many countries, persecution is becoming even more harsh as authorities apparently are taking the opportunity to use COVID-19 as a reason to clamp down on Christ followers.
In several situations, non-Believers are coming to pastors and lay leaders for assistance with food and medicine. They are they reporting to authorities that the pastor prayed for them. Pastors and lay leaders are being arrested.
Please pray for Christian leaders to remain strong in their faith, for them to have the resources they need to feed the hungry and provide medications to those in need.
Please pray for my team and our e3 ministry as we get more creative in how to partner with our national leaders to minister to their communities and to share the Gospel.
May we all get a glimpse of how God is using this pandemic for His glory and His honor!!
