The world is presently facing a pandemic with the coronavirus (Covid19). This disease is now on every continent. It’s in most countries now and it is spreading person to person around the world. It is for sure a very challenging moment for the church and Christian ministries, to rise up to the occasion as God calls us in the book of 1 Peter 4:10, “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms” I see an opportunity for the Church to seize the moment and seek the Lords guidance, as God has placed in our lives people, Nations to whom we are called to minister and help. Jesus Himself when He saw the misery of mankind under the power of sin and death, did not remain on his heavenly throne, but came down to this world. He made time for us, heal the sick, strengthen the weak and encouraged those without hope.
I believe there are people who are hurting both on the outside physically and in their hearts in need of a Saviour.
HOPE COMMUNITY CHURCH TEAM VISIT – KENYA
The people of Kenya are grateful for the love and encouragement from the team. They visited two communities in Maasai and we were blessed. They worshiped with us under a tree church. Prayed for the Church and encouraged the local community to seek God. We thank God for their courage using the rough roads, being rained on. We saw their love for us and we pray for Gods blessing upon their lives and families.

COVID19 – COMMUNITY SENSITIZATION AND EDUCATION
As the Covid19 spread all over the world, here in Kenya some communities do not understand what’s going on and are finding it hard to believe that there is an unseen enemy who is slowly bringing down the economies of the world. It is due this reason that Rev. Moses Rianto in partnership with PIPES int’l offered to go into the community to sensitize on hand washing and other hygiene practices that will help them prevent them from getting the virus. We bought buckets with tap and liquid soap to demonstrate on how they should do it. We pray many well-wishers will come out to help such communities and empower them with knowledge on how they should protect themselves.
