*Update 3/20/2020: Due to safety concerns, this trip has been postponed until further notice*
Dear Current/Potential Impact Team Volunteers,
I wanted to take a brief moment to talk about the conversation around every dinner table…the Coronavirus began taking the world by storm first via news outlets and social media and now seems to occupy most conversations. This is now our globally reality, as virtually every country in the world has or is in the process of closing their borders. This is no small deal and we have sought to respond in an appropriately and timely manner.
The Coronavirus has and will continue to have a significant effect on our ministry. We have taken the steps to postpone all Impact Teams scheduled from now through May 31, 2020. All volunteers on these teams, departing before May 31, should have received communication specific to them earlier this week. Impact Teams scheduled after May 31 will be evaluated as the situation unfolds.
Humankind has a real need, and it’s not to beat the Coronavirus (though we can all agree we’re looking forward to the day that is true). Humankind’s REAL need is Jesus. The REAL need is salvation. While we have been temporarily limited from traveling abroad to expand this effort, let’s not neglect coming alongside of those close by who have fears, pointing them to the true source of freedom from fear. As Paul reminded Timothy, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” (2 Tim 1:7)
Do not forget that while this element of our work had been reduced, around the globe children are still meeting in regular Story Clubs to hear and be transformed as their life story comes in contact with the story that God has been telling since the moment of creation.
Please join us in prayer. Prayer for these children. Pray for those that are and will be inflicted with this virus. Pray for those leading the way to combat the outbreak. Pray for those that are living in fear. Most importantly, pray that God will be glorified in all of these things.
Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns you may have.
What if there was an opportunity for you and your son to not just travel and adventure together, but to serve others side-by-side? Well, guess what?!? We’ve jammed them all together to create an epic trip just for Fathers and Sons! This “Bro-Venture” is the perfect chance to step outside of your daily life and invest in your relationship with your son(s). We’ll be traveling around the Cusco region, building a playground in an amazing community, interacting with the local boys there, and serving the community in other ways… together!
Gather your son(s), invite some friends, and join us as we create milestones in a young man’s life that will center on both the skills and traits that every man should master on their life’s journey.
