the corona-19 virus requires ministries to be nimble.
We were prompted to send unrestricted money to five of our ministry partners. They were asked to use it where needed most. Here is what we heard. Pastors of small village churches receive very little pay, if any from the church. They work other jobs and due to the corona-19 virus the businesses where they work were closed. The urgent need was for food. In Liberia, VOX radio station 97.5 fm invited 30 local pastors and provided them with food to feed their families for two weeks. So 206 people in those families benefitted from your gifts to us.
Find a need and fill it
The blessing to us is to see the response of the 30 pastors who pledged support for the Christian station from their churches. They would provide money to pay for the fuel for the generator to keep the station on the air. Praise the LORD for their providing such a blessing to the station. They said, "because of the love you showed to us at our time of real need, we want to help the station".
When other donors heard about the need and the opportunity to help provide food, they opened up coffers and gave. Following the help provided to 30 pastors and their families the community attended and another 2,500 people in the radio listening audience received food.
