Hope During These Times

                                              April 8, 2020
The last few weeks have been one of the strangest our world has ever experienced. Newsfeeds continue to reveal the spread and impact of COVID-19. It just seems crazy to see whole countries on lockdown and isolation as we have never known. People are losing loved ones, their sources of income, dreams for the future and more. We know our world will never be the same.

One thing that hasn’t changed is the fact that people need hope. We, and we hope you too, are finding that hope in Jesus and in His comforting words in the Bible. Jesus is our refuge and strength (Psalm 46:1), His name is a strong tower (Proverbs 18:10), and the hope of all the nations (Matthew 12:21). And He invites us to abide in His love. John 15:9

So how are you doing? How is your work progressing? Those are questions we frequently are asked. For us, we have had disturbed nights of sleep, seen many of the opportunities to promote ScriptureEarth.org canceled, and are feeling the loss of contact with our church, Bible study, and friends. We are and have been working from home since January.  But we are so thankful for technology! For such a time as this, it was created. It has allowed us to keep promoting SE.org via social media, emails, and phone. Through online meeting platforms, we are staying connected to our colleagues, church, Bible study group, family and friends during this unprecedented time. And now, how should we all live? Trusting in and keeping our hope in Him, our Risen and Victorious Savior. We know that someday in the future this will be over but for now:

We are praying for you! Here’s how you can pray for us too:•    
Please pray for good connections via social media, emails, and phone calls with people who can bring hope through sharing the resources found in SE.org 
•    We will get good sleep; it does make a difference. Jim was diagnosed with sleep apnea. He starts with a CPAP machine this week.
•    We will abide in Christ and find our strength and hope in Him…fixing our eyes on Him. 
•    Pray for our new granddaughter, Olivia Hope, born April 2 to our son Josh and Ani in Russia. Olivia needs to eat more, and Ani needs to heal internally. 
•    Jordan started on a mandatory 14-day quarantine in Alaska on April 6th, so he can start work as a fireman at Denali NP later this month. Pray he uses his time wisely. 
•    Pray for protection for Judy’s dad who is doing chemo every day this week. 
•    Praise: Despite the present financial situation, our God provides abundantly!

We wish you and yours a wonderful Easter celebrating all we were given through the cross and the empty tomb. Praise God we have a Risen Savior.
