I hope you are all keeping well despite the ongoing difficulties associated with COVID19. When I took over from Mr. Bobi Brown back in July it was right in the middle of the pandemic. Our halls were closed and all activities had stopped. It was a difficult time for everyone within the Mission. Thankfully modern technology provided a way for many of the missionaries to reach their communities. Zoom meetings became very popular, YouTube videos appeared online and Facebook messages went out on a weekly basis. It was encouraging to hear reports of large numbers watching these meetings and even more encouraging when reports surfaced that a number of people had been gloriously saved listening to God’s Word presented in this way.
We acknowledge a great debt of gratitude to those who have faithfully stood with us during these very trying months. Even when finances were stretched during the summer our God provided the means to cover the staff salaries through two timely legacies. We can take great comfort from the assurance that our God always meets the needs of His people on time every time. ‘But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.’ (Phil 4:19) Yours in Christ, William Logan, Executive Secretary
