“Strict new curbs on life in the UK to tackle the spread of coronavirus have been announced by the prime minister. People may only leave home to exercise once a day, travel to and from work when it is “absolutely necessary”, shop for essential items and fulfil any medical or care needs.” (Excerpt from BBC)
Saints in UK:
We are living in the realization that the Lord is using this, as our Captain, to lead us into the good land. To some extent we have been wandering in the wilderness, enjoying Him in many ways. Now is the time to be strong, take courage, rise up and follow Joshua into Canaan. The saints are shaken out of our routine church life and entering into uncharted territory.
We are meeting virtually, more often, even many times per day. More praying. More shepherding, especially dormant ones. A few have become “sick” but not too serious. We are strict about isolating but not forsaking the assembling (by Zoom, Skype, etc. ). We take care of the needs of the older saints who are more strictly isolated. We look away from everything, including the news, into the face of our Joshua.
