The Covid virus has impacted the churches of EC Church – Latin America quite hard. Rev. Juan Zuñiga, the Superintendent, had Covid-19. He has since recovered, but several pastors and/or their families have struggled with the disease. In addition, the Mexican government has closed churches to help prevent more spread, so the pastors have no income; they were paid out of the offerings from their churches. Many have had to resort to selling family belongings to be able to buy food for their children.
Rev. Abraham Powell, bishop of the EC Church of Liberia, gives praise for the wonderful ‘gift’ that he finally received from Global Ministries and contributions from EC churches and individuals. In February, a box containing solar powered digital units, a high-end microphone, and a supply of sd cards was sent to allow our Liberian church leadership to record and distribute teaching materials to

all 36 churches. This will include readings of the Bible in Bassa, the language of most of our EC church members, some of whom are illiterate and/or don’t read or speak English. The shipment got as far as Germany when Covid broke out; it was stuck there in quarantine for several months. It finally shipped to Liberia and sat there for some time as well. Eventually it was delivered with all contents intact. Praise the Lord! Rev. Powell sent a short video sharing his presenting of all the materials to his leaders.

“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.”

“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
