As ministers of Christ we take the current crisis affecting our world very seriously. Our Christian faith, God given compassion, and even our specific calling as evangelists, all compels us to do something, desire something, and seek ways in which to help.
After prayer and much discussion among our team and ministry partners around the world, we have implemented the following:
We immediately postponed ALL On The Go missions planned for March, April, and May. The reason we had to take such aggressive acts right now is that we have pastors, missionaries, volunteers who, in order to promote and prepare for these missions, have to be in contact with hundreds of people and we do not want to place them at risk. As God directs we will make the needed decisions concerning each future event.
We have also advised the On The Go staff to work from home as much as practical. We have and will, with appropriate gear, continue to disinfect the On The Go office.
We will work with our board and prayer partners to monitor the financial, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of our missionaries, collaboration partners, and staff as to know how we can pray and assist as needed.
This will be a great challenge to our local and international team. With all their missions and outreach events being cancelled, many of our actions sports missionaries, musicians, and workers will have NO opportunity to receive any funds. As churches cut back due to limited funds, limited contact, and social distancing, life will become hard for all of us, however, we are committed to doing whatever necessary to continue to do the work of the evangelist!
With all this in mind we request that all Friends of On The Go keep praying for us, keep giving as you have in the past as long as possible, and do all you can during this crisis to share the Love of Jesus with all you interact with online, on the phone, and in social media. This is a time to unite, pray, and be a part of God’s plan for our total recovery! In Christ we will get through this and His purposes for our lives will be fulfilled.
We are praying for you all during this time If you have any specific needs, burdens, ideas, or concerns please let us know and we will do all we can to help.
We are all On The Go with and for Jesus. He will not let us down. Psalm 139!
