Dear Publishing Colleagues,
In face of the COVID-19 outbreak we are reaching out with a special prayer request.
Worldwide, the Seventh-day Adventist Church has more than 45 thousand active Literature Evangelists (Full-Time, Part-Time, and Students). Every year, this special army get in contact with over 30 million people at homes, businesses, churches, and institutions.
Since last week, we have seen many countries enforcing lockdown rules in order to reduce and prevent the spreading of the virus in their communities.
Of all church workers, pastors, teachers, health professionals, and institutions employees, Literature Evangelists (LEs) are the only ones who depends solely of personal face-to-face contact in order to sell our books. There is no doubt that COVID-19 enforcement rules will represent a significant challenge for most of our LEs. Therefore, I want to request that you and your team set aside some time to pray for our brave Literature Evangelists. Let us place them in the hands of GOD Who certainly is powerful to provide for their needs and to perform all kind of miracles.
Literature Evangelism is a spiritual ministry, and today more than ever, we need spiritual strength to keep this ministry alive and relevant.
Please join us in prayer as we seek God’s power during this difficult situation our nations and our LEs are facing.
