They have been unsettled and discouraged
Many cross-cultural workers look forward to travelling back to see loved ones. As many of us have had to experience, missing out on occasions like Christmas, weddings and funerals can be a painful reminder of the separation caused by the pandemic.
However, through your support and prayers, our workers are continuing to be encouraged in this time. One of our workers in the Gulf sent this update recently showing how vital ongoing member care is:
Thank you for reaching out and praying for us. We still plan to return to the UK in late April and have a plane ticket booked. COVID-19 cases have tripled here and are as high as they have ever been. They were vaccinating a lot, but not as much as recently, possibly due to supply.
You can encourage workers as they make Christ known
‘When we have the opportunity to help anyone, we should do it. But we should give special attention to those who are in the family of believers.’ Galatians 6:10 (New Century Version)
