Covid 19 Update

The Covid19 outbreak is having a profound effect on all our lives, and on the work of world mission. Every country where our missionaries work has been affected, and all are under some kind of lockdown regime. This means that the missionaries are as much in need of our prayers as ever.


GBM Mission Centre

Because of government directions to all of us to work from home, all GBM staff are now based at home and remote working. You can still contact us by email, and we will be checking the office answerphone regularly, so please feel free to get in contact whenever you need to.


Resources

We have produced a special edition of the GBM Prayer Diary Partnership in Prayer which is not date-specific. You can download this here. It gives you thirty days of prayer material, covering all our missionaries in one way or another, together with much more material for prayer and a Bible verse for each day appropriate to that day’s subject for prayer. We are not posting a printed version because the office is closed and we think it will be easier for churches to distribute all of them by email during the lockdown. We really would value your support in encouraging as many of your church members as possible to use this prayer guide.


We plan to produce the next edition of Prayer Waves as normal next week, and we will put this on open access so that churches can send a link to their members to access the video at home without the need for a password.


Are your children off school and in need of good resources to help them in their home schooling? The spring edition of our children’s magazine Let’s Go! is now available, price £1.50, and includes 16 pages of full-colour features about different parts of the world, rich in photos, facts and fun. It includes a Bible story, competitions, a craft and a quiz. Although the office is closed, these have already been printed and we are happy to post out orders received by email. Please contact Janet Woods: [email protected]


Movements

Several of our missionaries have decided to return home for a number of reasons. Some have already returned and are self-isolating. Others are hoping to travel in the next day or so. Please pray that they are able to make all stages of their journeys successfully.


If you’d like to receive regular news updates for prayer, then now is a good time to sign up for our regular GBM newsfeed email. Please use the online form here.


Thank you for your prayers
