We are in strange days. Who would have imagined that almost every town and city in the entire world would now be locked down, with governments testing and enforcing “social distancing”.
Right across CA these lockdowns are bringing great hardships to our neighbours and our brothers and sisters who live among them.
Work and jobs there have been hit. CA businesses are caught in cash-flow problems. Fear has caused some villages to ban outsiders. Everywhere families are in dread of losing their adults. And on it goes. These are remakable months and we will be looking back at them for decades.
Another thing that’s swept the region is Zoom. You get the impression “everyone” is using the Internet to connect while locked down.
PI New Zealand intends to more and more use the Internet to connect with people we might never be able to “sit down with”, as the Winter of the coronavirus moves into the Spring of the economic and social recovery that will come across the world.
You can help a believing family in lockdown hardship
Lockdown stops jobs. In CA, the first person to be laid off by a business is often a believer.
PINZ can deliver a box of groceries to families of believers who have suddenly lost a job and found themselves unable to afford enough food, or pay their bills.
Other believing families who do have work are already helping their fellows. We will join this self-help effort. If you can send a donation, PINZ will make sure it reaches the door step of needy believing families. What a blessing!
Would you pray about helping these people?
Two ways to give to these families
(1) Use Internet banking to give directly to PI’s bank account:
(2) Use a credit card or bank account through PushPay
