Pray for some friends who are former missionaries in Europe.  They came to the States a couple weeks ago to visit family.  Due to the caronavirus, they do not have any idea when they will be allowed to return to China where they now live and he teaches.

Pray for all those who have been exposed and/or diagnosed.  I understand the mortality rate is higher than the regular flu we are familiar with.  Pray for the researches to learn more quickly so lives can be saved and many people can return to their normal lives.

Chinese American churches react to coronavirus

 The good news is, most people infected with coronavirus can expect to recover, but all people plagued by sin have no escape from death. There is no cure, except the gift of salvation through the death and resurrection of Jesus our Lord and Savior. May this terrible tragedy drive people to the arms of Jesus.

May our lives also bear “fruit” whether or not we are aware of it.  That should be our greatest goal in life.
