Matthew 14:16 (ESV)

 But Jesus said, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.”


Harvest International has been our partner in Global Missions for many years.  Our first mission trip to Haiti was under the banner of Harvest International and we have since completed many mission trips together.  I was recently made aware of an effort by Harvest to raise funds to buy food for the thousands of refugees fleeing the Ukraine.  The food will be purchased in Poland and made available for the refugees.  We have made a generous donation from our Global Mission accounts to help buy much needed food.  Harvest has people on the ground that will monitor the progress of this effort.


So much is going on in the world and we can do our part to help make things better.  Please continue to pray for the people of Ukraine and our own nation.  We are truly living in troubled times.  Don’t allow yourself to become disconnected from the message of God’s Word.  It is God’s Word that will keep us focused and faithful as we face the tests of our times.


All is well at New Covenant by God’s grace.  I continue to keep check on CDC updates to determine when we can open more of our ministries.  I am operating on the principle that it is better to be safe than sorry.

Blessings and Be Safe,
