Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I thank God for saving us and keeping us safe during this pandemic. We are in difficult times, and as we all know, only the Lord can keep us safe. Since COVID-19, our church’s services have been truly suffering. We have been streaming our Sunday’s church services, but many of our church members don’t have access to the internet, which makes it difficult for them to be connected to us. The number of people coming to the church significantly decreased and even with the resumption of worship. It also had other adverse consequences, notably on the finances of the church and we are struggling… Thank you for your financial support, the church has received your help.
Most of our church’s plans, events and evangelization programs are still on hold as there are a lot of restrictions in place, to minimize the spread of the disease. Consequently, both our national churches and international church (M.I.R.E Gabon) are also suffering. We also had 3 death cases in our church during this pandemic. However, we are continuing to remobilize our church members as COVID-19 has influenced their faith and their lives too. We have started visiting families again with a view to helping them in their walk with God and at the same time also encouraging them to return to church; some of our prayer cells were closed. All our missionary programs have been postponed until next year.
There is hope in Christ!
We pray that the Lord give us the means to organize the end of year celebrations for our widows and orphans as the current time are very difficult and we might not be able to…
We ask you to pray for us and for the country and support us in any ways you can. Presidential election will be held at the end of this month and we are all concerned. My brothers and sisters, please, join us in prayer so that God take away the fear, and anxiety from the population and protect us all during this period. We also pray that the Lord protect all families and friends and bring peace to all. My wife and children, and our church members send you their warmest greetings and thank you for all your prayers and support. Please also note that we do not have an IGM email account.
May the Lord bless you for your follow-up in our ministry and for all the good work that you are accomplishing in his name. My wife and children, and our church members send you their warmest greetings and thank you for all your prayers and support. We love you in Christ.
Proclamation of Glory
