[04/05/20]   I was able to hide the speaker icon, but when I quickly previewed my voice went on, but the video did not. Maybe it will behave when it's published? Anyway, it's the message that is important. Have a blessed day. Be sure to do something this week that will make Jesus smile.

Making some progress in this virtual world. All in one place this week. Apologies for sound in parts. Now to learn how to hide the microphone symbol. Have a blessed week, everyone.

Today's smile might need to be virtual, or it might need to be a phone call or a text, but it will be just as valuable.

COB asks all to join day of prayer against COVID-19; sets virtual meeting

Only just now saw this, but it's in accordance with the Pope's request for everyone to pray the Lord's Prayer at noon today. Please share so that as many as possible can unite in prayer today against COVID-19. The Council of Bishops (COB) of The United Methodist Church has asked all United Methodists to join people of faith in a day of prayer tomorrow, March 25, asking God to rid the world of the coronavirus pandemic.   The COB also announced that the May meeting of the Council will be a virtual meeting ...

Here is an update on Maskir, our Compassion child from Ethiopia. Please note the prayer concerns and add them to your prayers. This is how we make a difference in our world!

Schools in Ethiopia are closed through March 29. Large gatherings are banned, religious gatherings are limited, and precautionary measures are in place for public transportation. All child development centers have stopped group activities, meetings and training. Partner churches are communicating prevention measures to families.

You may notice a lack of letters in the coming months, as children will not be at the Compassion centers to write or send their letters. Please rest assured that our staff in Ethiopia is working hard to provide support wherever possible. While the program activities cannot happen in groups at the churches, staff will continue to keep in touch with the children and attend to health issues as they are able. The main goal during the program suspension is to keep the children safe and protected.

Can I ask you to join us in praying for the people of Ethiopia? Particularly, will you pray for:

Protection from the virus for all children registered with Compassion Ethiopia and their families.
Health and safety for all Compassion staff, frontline church staff, and child development center volunteers in Ethiopia.
God’s provision for people who are unable to work during this time of quarantine in Ethiopia.
