We actually had a totally different letter written a few months ago, but much of it has been deleted, as has much of our normal ministry and daily schedules. There is no need for me to explain what has happened, as we are all painfully aware of the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the globe. We have been blessed to provide rice to over a thousand families in need. Thank you so much to those who gave to this project. Here is a brief video update on the “rice project.” I will highlight briefly in bullet points what is changing in our ministries. Thank you so much for praying for us and for supporting us. The Lord has met our every need and even enabled us to help many more families and individuals who are suffering. We in our finite wisdom would not ask for times like these, but we do thank God for them. It is His time to shine and show forth His power and glory. God’s Word, grace, and presence are truly all that we need. Regardless of what the future holds, we know He is already there. God is doing some very great things behind the scenes in all of this.
