Please pray for Indonesia.
Indonesia is starting to have severe issues like many other countries across the world. The sickness is spreading quickly. They still do not know the exact total of those who have been affected, but there have been 514 confirmed cases and 48 deaths. One report said the death rate is currently at 13% for those who are getting the virus.
Because of how quickly things are escalating there in the country, the Indonesian government will be paying bonuses to doctors and other medical staff during this time. Indonesia’s main island, Java, is one of the most densely populated places in the world. Only time will tell how this impacts lives over the next few weeks.
I have never heard of a signing bonus for missionaries, but the need for missionaries is far greater concerning Indonesia than medical staff. This virus is dangerous, but there is hope.
Without Christ, there is no hope after this life. I love Indonesia. I hurt for them concerning the repercussions from this that they will be hit by for months to come. However, their greatest need is to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. Please pray for more missionaries. Please pray for every Christian that is currently in the country. Ask God to work powerfully through this tragedy. Pray for grace for each believer.
We are praying for you.
Please let us know how we can pray for you. We know that this virus has affected people in different ways. How are you doing through this? How has it affected you and your church? Our family is doing well. God has been so good to us. We are thankful for good health and safety as we traveled home from meetings this past week.
Thank you for partnering with us to Reach Indonesia with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
