Do Not Be Dismayed: Part 3
12/13/2020 Washington, D.C. (International Christian Concern) – When Isaiah 41:10 says, “Do not fear, for I am with you,” it is easier said than lived out. In a third world country like Myanmar, even more so. As the coronavirus pandemic hit at the beginning of 2020, a second virus was also spreading: fear.
For 53 pastors and their families in Yangon’s outskirts, they relied heavily on their congregants’ generosity to support them. They were afraid with more government lockdowns that they would starve.
After ICC learned about their immense need, we knew we could help. Thankfully, the food packages came before the government braced for a second wave lockdown. The families were no longer isolated, no longer unsupported, but most importantly, no longer hungry.
Through God’s provision, these families can say, “I will not fear, for God is with me; I will not be dismayed, for He is my God. He will strengthen me and help me; He will uphold me with His righteous right hand.”
Thank you for your prayers for the rural pastors of Yangon.
