In these difficult times, during which many of us may well experience hardship and loss, be assured that WEC UK & Ireland are praying for you. Prayer has long been a priority for us and we continue to pray together, through the technology available: for the Church, for the UK and Ireland, and for the nations of the world – especially those most affected by COVID-19. Increasingly, our own members and their loved ones are contracting the virus, so we are grateful for those of you praying for us, too. In spite of these circumstances, we hold fast to our good God who has already walked with us through many trials in WEC’s history.
For over 100 years, WEC has committed to demonstrating God’s love, as we live by his grace, while offering his hope to the unreached peoples of the world. On many occasions, this has led us to minister in the context of political unrest and natural disasters, in different parts of the globe. While these seismic events have forced us to alter the way we function – as does this current pandemic – we commit to remaining true to who we are: God’s salt and light in our respective communities. Our compassion for the lost and needy remains the same. How we express that love through action will require some inspired creativity. These are days when the global Church can be known for its courageously selfless love. And WEC UK & Ireland are honoured to play our part.
With eyes fixed on Jesus,
Malcolm and Kerstin Gray
