We live in very challenging times that people are trying to make sense of their lives. The coronavirus is something entirely different that it is asking us to do something different. It is separating us from the very people who in other times of stress are there to help us through – our family, our neighbours and our community. We can face these days of fear and testing with hope. These can and should be days of renewed worship, rededicated service, care, friendship and love. We must be alert to the stranger among us and we must love one another and be kind, just as God in Christ has been merciful to us.
In Kenya, we wish you all well. We wish you health and strength. Together we are going to get through this and we will celebrate all the wonder and power of God over all.
“Be of good cheer” Our Lord said, just before His own horrific death on our behalf, “I have overcome the world” (John 16:33)
COVID19 SENSITIZATION AND AWARENESS TRAINING – MAILI TISA, KENYA
As government gives rules and guidelines to follow for good hygiene for self-protection, there is still a lot of the local communities that do not understand and will require someone to explain to them in their native language and demonstrate so they can see. This month Rev Moses Rianto spent some time training on how to sanitize hands to locals and how to wash hands. Some churches are taking initiatives to teach members on these good practices.

EMPOWERING THE LOCAL PASTORS
Many times it is always the pastor that everybody runs to for encouragement. But who encourages the pastor? At this time of coronavirus, many pastors need someone to walk with them, to encourage them as they do ministry, to evangelize, and pray for the needs. We thank With Open Eyes and Cities of refuge for giving hope to the local pastors and providing with food for their families.

ZION BAPTIST – COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT
With many market places being closed for safety due to the coronavirus, many locals are suffering for lack of food for their families. We want to thank God and the Unveiling glory ministry for empowering the local community with food items. Over 80 families were helped. There is still huge need and we ask for your prayers.
