UPDATES FROM THE GLOBAL EC CHURCH:
I’m sure many of you have been following the news reports coming out of India regarding the most recent surge in Covid cases ravaging many of the major cities.  Currently, all church worship services are suspended which, of course, will affect the pastors and leaders of ECCI (Evangelical Congregational Church India) as most people do not participate in any form of online giving. 
The Evangelical College of Theology has also discontinued in-person classes and has moved to online learning, which presents many challenges due to poor internet services.  We have lost some pastors and missionaries across India due to Covid, and as you saw the other day, Rev. Angam, who served as General Director of ECCI, was also infected. I’m glad to report that so far he is doing well.
 Due to the fact that the majority of the churches of ECCI are in a remote corner of India (Northeast India) they have not felt the full impact of the pandemic.  However, Northeast India does not possess the adequate emergency services and hospitals to deal with a surge in Covid cases, and thus if they experienced a rapid increase, it could be devastating in the state of Manipur and the town of Churachandpur.  In addition, due to the ICU-capable hospitals being filled quickly in the major cities, it has become extremely difficult to move patients from these smaller towns into hospitals equipped to care for the critical Covid cases that would need the expertise of a city hospital. 
 Please spend some time in prayer for our brothers and sisters in India, and I want to encourage you to set some time apart in your worship services this Sunday to pray specifically for the country of India – that God would intervene in this situation, and that He would watch over and protect our brothers and sisters in ECCI.

MISSION QUOTES
“Mission is anything that anyone does anywhere to expand the kingdom of God.”
-Christian Åkerhelm
“Mission arises from the heart of God himself, and is communicated from his heart to ours. Mission is the global outreach of the global people of a global God.”
-John Stott
“To know the will of God, we need an open Bible and an open map.”
-William Carey
“It is not so much the case that God has mission for his church in the world, as that God has a church for his mission in the world. Mission was not made for the church; the church was made for mission–God’s mission.”
-C.J.H. Wright
“Never concede to doing something so small that it could be accomplished entirely in your lifetime. Be a part of something that began before you were born, and will continue onward toward the fulfillment of all that God has purposed to accomplish.” 
-Ralph Winter
“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”
-Jim Elliot
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
-Mother Mary Teresa Bojaxhiu
“The missionary heart: Care more than some think is wise. Risk more than some think is safe. Dream more than some think is practical. Expect more than some think is possible. I was called not to comfort or success but to obedience… There is no joy outside of knowing Jesus and serving him.”
–Karen Watson
