Dear Fields of Life family,

We understand that this is a season of great uncertainty and worry for many, and we have been praying and talking about how we should best respond to this crisis. Here is what we have decided to do:

  1. Online Video Content. This is going to be a season of potential isolation and loneliness for many. Therefore, we are going to post regular online video content to better connect you to the wider Fields of Life family. We will hear from our partners in East Africa as they respond to the pandemic, and we will hear from staff, trustees and members of the family across the world.
  2. Updates. We will be keeping you regularly updated by email and phone, especially about how the pandemic is unfolding in East Africa.
  3. Freeze your monthly payments. We understand that this can be a stressful time for many of you. If you are in financial difficulty due to this pandemic, we are offering you the opportunity to freeze your sponsorship or direct debit until you can get back on your feet. Please phone us if you are going to be struggling in this way and we can organise this for you.
  4. 24/7 prayer. We believe in prayer and so we are launching a 24/7 prayer schedule starting Sunday 22nd March, where we will be praying for our wider FOL family. Click this link to sign up to pray with us.

Over the next few weeks, we look forward to being able to connect and communicate in a new way in these uncertain times. Following meetings with our East African team today and tomorrow morning I will provide a video update tomorrow on the impact of COVID-19 in East Africa.
Most of all. Let’s be alone. Together.
God bless,

Richard Spratt
