This is a crisis moment! For Christian pastors and their families who already often face daily struggles with poverty and persecution for their faith, the loss now of all or most of their meagre income because of Covid-19 lockdown of their church is almost too much to take.
These truly “front-line spiritual workers” in God’s global family rely solely on church offerings to feed their families, buy medicine and put a roof over their heads. This WEA fund is helping financially bridge pastors’ families over a 6-month period to help them survive – and minister best they can to their suffering communities – until they can once again meet together with their congregations and resume their income. They are our brothers and sisters and they need our help now.
*NOTE: The Global South generally includes Asia (except Japan, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan), Central America, South America, Mexico, Africa, and the Middle East (except Israel). For more information call: 1-212-233-3046 or email [email protected].
