Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)


COVID-19 Update

During the current global situation in response to COVID-19, it can be easy for fear to take root. As Jesus followers, though we take wise precautions and listen to healthcare and government officials, we don’t stop living out Christ’s love in our communities.

Scripture instructs us to worry about nothing, but rather, by prayer and petition, to make our requests known to God; then, the peace of God will guard our hearts and minds (Phil. 4:6-7).

In the meantime, OM’s global leadership team has acted, considering global advice from the World Health Organisation and other global advisories:

  1. We have set up a COVID-19 response team to enable us to respond to what is a fast-changing operating environment.
  2. All non-essential, OM-related international travel is suspended. This includes postponing the sending of missionaries and workers to short and long term mission trips.
  3. Teams are encouraged to limit non-essential international and regional travel. 

Obviously, some of these restrictions disrupt regular ministry activities, however, out of love for our neighbours and the communities we serve, we want to foster the safest possible environment we can.

As we live in these unprecedented times, let's remember that our hope is in Christ, that God's everlasting love and peace is with us. Even now, God is in control.

We believe prayer is vital.
