Do Not Be Dismayed: Part 1
12/07/2020 Washington, D.C. (International Christian Concern) – The coronavirus took 2020 in the early months by surprise. In Yangon, Myanmar, pastors and congregations had financial struggles before the virus took full effect. Rural and city churches alike banded together and shared resources.
However, as the lockdowns dragged on for months, all church activities stopped their mission outreaches, and missionaries lost their only income source. The government initiated a strict stay-at-home mandate, cutting 53 pastors of Myanmar Baptist Churches Unions and their families off from access to food and health resources.
Church leaders could do nothing to care for the incredible need the isolation caused without help and careful safety measures.
ICC heard about their impossible situation and wanted to help.
Isaiah 41:10 says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
