COVID-19 Response

RESPONDING TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

I’ve written previously about the importance of hope during the coronavirus pandemic. Hope is the antidote to fear, a way of facing the future clinging to faith in the God who loves us. Our trust in God gives us the opportunity to follow His example as servants, sharing our time, efforts and resources on behalf of others. It gives us a foundation for generosity, even when the prevailing mindset is one of scarcity.

This is the kind of hopeful generosity I want to extend to our global partners during this crisis. When India ordered a lockdown, millions lost their jobs and, subsequently, their ability to provide food and other basic necessities for themselves and their families. Our partners there are committed to delivering packages of food and soap to support families in their regions. Another partner, in a rural region of Central Asia, runs two health clinics and is distributing critical medial supplies for life-saving care.

In these situations, and others, our partners are often the only Christian presence among their primarily Hindu and Muslim neighbors. Pray with us that their generosity brings a light during these dark times, and that many would not only be sustained for the needs of today, but might also ask the reason for the hope our partners have.

Though we sense the possibility of our own resources diminishing during the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m mindful that this season calls us to come alongside our frontier mission sisters and brothers in prayer and financial support. To that end, we’ve created a downloadable prayer resource to guide your petitions. We’ve also initiated an Emergency Relief Fund to help alleviate the resource burden on these friends around the world. I invite you to pray fervently. I encourage you to give generously so we can distribute funds for these emergency situations and others as they arise.

Grace and Peace,

Richard L. Haney
Executive Director

SPECIAL GIVING OPPORTUNITIES

Medical Care | Central Asia

Our Rural Community Center partner operates two health care clinics, one of which serves 50,000 people, in impoverished regions of Central Asia. They are responsible for stocking and distributing core medicines for the community (at a cost of $30 per month for a neighborhood or large family). The anticipated impact of COVID-19 will challenge their capacity to provide treatment. Will you generously give to the work of their ministry so they can continue to provide care?

Community Support | Ethiopia

Communities served by Light of Hope Ministry Ethiopia (LOHME) are facing a lack of medical supplies, food scarcity and a water crisis. Educational institutions, including LOHME village schools, have been shut down during this time of quarantine, but LOHME teachers remain on the ground and ready to support families in need with food packets, basic hygiene kits and emergency medical supplies. Will you offer a financial gift so LOHME can continue to reach out in Christ’s love to the Muslim communities they serve?

DONATE NOW

Family Support | India

Families of day laborers in northern India are financially devastated by forced quarantine. With businesses closed down, there is no work. With no work, families are unable to purchase food and other basic necessities. Two of our partners are delivering food and hygiene packs ($60 each) that provide for a family of four for one month. Will you help financially support their ministry as they serve their Hindu and Muslim neighbors?
