The following is from an email sent recently to our partners:
Well, 2020 has been quite unexpected, hasn’t it? COVID-19, the “Coronavirus,” is impacting and disrupting our lives and plans, locally and globally. It’s good at these times to remember that God is not disrupted; He is sovereign and even this will be worked out for His glory and our good. All praise to Him!
With hundreds of WorldVenture workers throughout Asia and across the world, we’ve been monitoring the situation for several weeks. You’ll be pleased to know that we have leaders and protocols in place to provide information and protection for our workers while also empowering them to make the decisions they need to make to preserve the long-term ministry to which God has called them. I thank you for your prayers and continued support of the global ministry that we, the WorldVenture family, are privileged to share with you.
The work of the Gospel must continue!
Following is a short video I hope will encourage you. Let’s not lose sight of the greater vision that comes with following Jesus. The work of the Gospel must continue! We have a unique responsibility and opportunity to share the good news, perhaps with an urgency and receptivity we haven’t experienced in some time.
In the meantime…
The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace. (Numbers 6:24-26 NIV)
