Like everyone, we are dealing with the social, financial, and physical implications of the Coronavirus. To protect our students and clients, we’ve decided to shut down operations for the next four weeks. During this time, we will be visiting the homes of some of the most vulnerable families we work with. Many parents have been laid off or cannot work because of the lack of daycare options. With no means to stock up on supplies for the next month, these families are struggling to put food on the table, pay for rent, and buy diapers for their children. As a result, we will be delivering care packages to make sure each family has what they need to get through this difficult time.
With so much negative news being broadcast globally, it is easy to succumb to fear. Yet, we have an opportunity to manifest God’s love and to be a light during this dark time. Let us be brave and face these challenges together. Let us remember these important words and be encouraged to share the burdens of our neighbors:
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
“When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.” Psalm 94:18-19
For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” Zephaniah 3:17
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” Matthew 25:35-36
We invite you to join us in spreading hope amidst chaos and uncertainty; for hope is the Eternal Anchor for our souls.
