The safety and care of our constituents and missionaries globally and on deputation amidst the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic is one of our top priorities.  We ask for you to join us in prayer globally for our leaders and members for God’s protection and guidance.

 

In a desire to fulfill our goal of being good stewards Global Missions has cancelled all deputation services for the next two weeks, except for on line services in a desire to protect our missionary family as well as the faithful membership of our churches. Our directors are actively offering facilities where the missionaries can stay during this time.

 

Short-term missionary personnel have been asked to postpone travel to the field for the next two weeks and we will re-evaluate on April 30, 2020. 

 

Our missionary force overseas has been encouraged in the past to have an emergency plan for food and finances.  We have written to all and made finances available so that they are prepared.  We have also informed them that if any feel it expedient for them to return to North America we will facilitate that.  

 

All activities are being postponed according to the directives of the governments around the world.

 

We have encouraged the worldwide leadership to take advantage of this opportunity to minister to their nations using means that will not endanger the health of those involved.  This is an open door for us to minister to those that are looking to God in this crisis.
