It is important to remind ourselves that the Coronavirus pandemic did not negate the Great Commission. In fact, with the deaths that have occurred because of the virus, our commitment to seeing souls saved should increase.
Pandemics will come and go but both heaven and hell are eternal places. The message of salvation explains how to be saved from an eternal hell and spend eternity in heaven. The money you give to missions helps to proclaim the good news about the home in heaven that awaits all those who accept Jesus as Savior.
Alisha Stensaas (serving in Uganda) tells about an opportunity she had to lead a young man to a saving knowledge of Christ.
We found out that one of our students died of pneumonia. Simon could not walk and was in a wheelchair. He also stuttered when he tried to speak but he had such a sweet spirit! We have many memories with Simon, but the best one of all was the day in 7th grade when I had the privilege of leading him to the Lord. This picture was taken right after that. I am so happy to know that right now he is wheelchair, stutter, and pain free enjoying his Savior. So thankful that we have that hope and that we will see him again one day! Thank you for giving so that Simon could go to heaven!
Because you have faithfully given to BIMI missionaries such as Alisha, Simon and many others are in heaven right now—for all eternity. Thank you for your faithful giving. Please continue to give as there are many others who still need to be warned about hell. God is not willing that any should perish. He wants everyone to come to repentance and enjoy eternity with Him.
Although we may be tempted to become anxious because of what is happening in this temporal world, let us continue to focus on the things of eternity—particularly the eternal souls of mankind. May the LORD richly bless you!
