During this time of the coronavirus, our ministry partners continue their work in various ways as allowed in their location(s). Please continue to pray, support and engage with them as they serve in their communities.

Missionary Partners

All God's Children
So far, in Honduras, the ministries of All God’s Children have not been drastically impacted by the virus. The whole country is locked down like we are. Nellie’s surgery went very well and her new wheel chair, donated by Elmhurst CRC, will be on its way to Honduras in the next few months.

Lampstand Ministries
Christopher and Naomi Langkamp 
Chris Langkamp and his team on the west side of Chicago continue to work to spread the love of Jesus in tangible ways. Lampstand's “My Brother’s Kitchen” has temporarily ceased serving their weekly meal during this season, but are actively distributing food to thousands of people who have lost jobs due to the closure of non-essential businesses.

National Schools Project
Mark Hopson
With all the schools shuttered for the year, this evangelistic ministry to high school students finds itself in a period of waiting and planning for future engagement.

Nurmay Missions
Christa and Abel Muanica
Watch video for April 2020 Update. 

Partners in Evangelism
Micah and Grace Rwothumio
Some places in the world are ill-equipped to deal with the consequences of the virus. Kampala, Uganda, where Micah and Grace minister, is locked down from 7 pm to 7 am with soldiers in the streets. So far, our friends have what they need, but they are concerned about increasing violence as the situation deepens.

Bobby and Hope Q
At their location, you must have government approval to leave your house. While they are locked down and unable to continue their basketball ministry with kids, they are planning online events for the basketball ministry students.

Resonate Global Mission
Scott and Lisa Neumann
Scott continues teaching his college courses in Lithuania while the family shelters at home.

Resonate Global Mission
Mike and Victoria Van Der Dyke
Mike and Victoria found their way home to the United States just before everything got locked down. They were coming to visit supporting churches and report on their work in Nigeria. They are now in Woodridge, Illinois huddled safely watching their supporting churches online.

World Renew
Kohima Daring
In Bangladesh, the virus is affecting people in dramatic ways as many have lost jobs that provide for daily sustenance. Kohima is sheltered at home working to support those in her sphere of influence.

Youth for Christ International
John and Karen Selph
The Selphs pastor missionaries all over the world and spend a lot of their year traveling to be with those they are caring for and encouraging. Due to COVID-19, their work is now being done from home. All travel is off, but they continue to encourage and reach out to missionaries in their care.

Youth With a Mission (YWAM)
Cliff and Cristine Wiener
The Wieners work at the YWAM training base in Perth, Australia. Their primary role is training and raising up missionaries to deploy on that side of the world. Their training has become remote and digital during this crisis. Cliff wrote this in his update to our Missions Team, “It seems that this pandemic has exposed such a great need for God. We believe that many opportunities will arise to bring waves of people into His kingdom.”

Youth With A Mission (YWAM)
Timothy Wiener
Timothy is based at the YWAM Discipleship Training School in Orlando, Florida, where people from all over the world come to be trained and sent out. He is doing well and enjoying his new responsibilities in their social media department.
