COV 19 Response: Hi friends. I join you in prayer at this very tough time for our nation and world. I am so encouraged to hear of the many good things that are coming out of this storm.
We are finding new ways of building community using Zoom and other apps. We are talking more on the phone, emailing and texting. We are seeing people staying connected to their churches and small groups. Presently we have a singles Zoom Bible study each Wednesday. We had one for the UK/Europe. We are also starting one for Slovakia. Lastly, we are doing Live Facebook on Sunday nights.
We are seeing an increase in free online resources whether it’s a Bible study, tools, articles, webinars to help people stay connected to Jesus, each other and their churches.
We are seeing an increase in kindness, often sharing what they have with others.
We are seeing and hearing about more people getting saved, more people wanting to know more about salvation.
We are seeing more people praying than ever before.
We are seeing people get healed from this virus.
While we are seeing these amazing good things, we also know the virus has caused fear, doubt, discouragement and pain..even among Christians. So, we must continue to be strong. To be the example of Christ. To point ourselves and others to Him. To bind the enemy. To trust God that he is using this pandemic to reach more for Him. We need to ask God what our part is and how he wants to use us.
So, what is The Singles Network Ministries doing in regard to the virus:
We are praying; asking the same questions of how we can be used by God in the best way possible.
We are working on online webinars, training events.
We continue to update our website with articles and tools we believe you need most where you are today.
We are still consulting, taking calls and helping leaders through the crisis as well as preparation for the future when we believe we will get back to meeting in person. Just because you are not meeting in the flesh does not change the need to minister. Singles are more isolated than ever, increasing the need to stay connected.
