Offering Relief & Hope in the Midst of a Modern Pandemic
e eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth for the Lord: He is our help and our shield.” – Psalm 33:18-20
“This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: Great is Thy faithfulness.” – Lamentations 3:21-23
Dear WME Partners and Supporters,
IT’S SO EASY TO GET LOST IN THE RHYTHM OF OUR NORMAL, DAY-TO-DAY LIVES— THAT IS, UNTIL SOMETHING COMES ALONG WHICH PUSHES US OUT OF OUR REGULAR ROUTINES AND FORCES US TO OPERATE IN A DIFFERENT REALITY. So for many here and in communities all around the world, these past weeks have been a time of sober-minded reflection.
We are so blessed to live and work in a prosperous nation with such a range of individual freedoms. Personally, I have realized there are things I have unconsciously taken for granted: The physical presence of family and friends. A simple handshake. Children in school classrooms. Basic supplies on local store shelves. Eating a meal inside a restaurant or diner. Sunday gatherings to worship God inside a church.
Medical professionals around the world rallied to meet the needs created by the coronavirus. Many medical facilities have been overwhelmed.
The COVID-19 coronavirus has done more than make hundreds of thousands sick across the globe while killing thousands of others. It has exposed the frailty of the economy and of life itself.
This pandemic has closed businesses, conventions and sporting events, leaving many individuals without steady work and struggling to pay bills. It has filled hospitals to overflowing in large cities and small towns, straining medical staff to keep up and draining necessary medical supplies. It has shut down schools and university campuses, forcing educators to find creative ways to teach (and sometimes feed) their students. Coronavirus has chaotically disrupted lives and livelihoods, without regard to country, creed, age, status or political system.
For many, food has been in short supply. Thus, one focus must be in feeding those who have few options for help.

THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK HAS EMPHASIZED THE TRUTH OF SOMETHING WE AT WORLD MISSIONARY EVANGELISM HAVE BEEN TRYING TO EXPLAIN FOR DECADES — LARGE PORTIONS OF THE WORLD’S PEOPLE, IN THE USA AND ABROAD, REALLY DO LIVE ON THE EDGE. For these who are the poorest of the poor, insecurity is a constant companion, and hope is a rare visitor. And when a disaster strikes in the form of a plague, storm, famine, earthquake, flood, fire or violent conflict, World Missionary Evangelism is there to lift up children and families who feel helpless and overwhelmed as they face the lack, hunger and poverty caused by a disaster.
