MISSIONARY OF THE WEEK

Ernest & Effie Dyck, serving with REACH Global (Caribbean Consortium)
Pray for:

  • International partners who are on strict limitations and can be fined or jailed for being out on the street looking for food
  • Those who are spending this time preparing future teaching materials
  • Consortium partners using every possible virtual means to keep sharing the gospel as well as encouraging their brothers and sisters in Christ; Ernest and Effie are often invited to share in virtual Bible studies
  • Ernest & Effie to maintain a healthy schedule as they address each Consortium ministry, fulfill their ReachGlobal responsibilities, and take time for themselves; obviously, their travel is on hold for a while!
  • ReachGlobal colleagues around the world as they deal with the local details related to virus restrictions and health; some have been evacuated and several have been diagnosed with the virus
