Travel Tips to Trust

Travel and Tips

Our travels in the past month allowed us to visit family and supporters in Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, and now North Carolina. As always, we find it excellent and pleasant to meet with those partnering with us.
New Friends

Make new friends, but keep the old.     One is silver, and the other gold.

It is interesting to observe how fears decrease with a fuller understanding of the COVID-19 disease. Frequently when we share with others, confidence grows that God develops a shared understanding to overcome the pandemic. We learn together that the Creation structured by His Word obligates those with the breath of life to manage our relationships with Him, ourselves, neighbors, and nature to thrive. Some ministry partners we meet in the open air—others we inform indoors during lightly attended services that honor varying degrees of social distancing. We greet more by phone. In most cases, sharing current knowledge of the viral process helps all readjust lifestyles so that we each reflect the power, love, and sound mind of Christ rather than fear. We encourage some to incorporate the occasional use of chlorhexidine gluconate (Hibiclens®). This adds to our counsel shared in March. It is yet another tool that inhibits bacterial and viral transmission when we shop or greet others. Overcoming this crisis requires faithful people to double-down on their trust in a loving Creator. He is the one who gives us the Wisdom to face the unknown rather than mortals who tend to gossip fearmongering. As shared in our 03/14/2020 update, stressing out about things we cannot individually control only WEAKENS our human immune systems over time.


This week, Verlin re-posted a report of Henry Ford Medical Center’s research on his Facebook page. Renewed trust revitalizes the use of hydroxychloroquine to diminish COVID-19 morbidity. Early in the pandemic, clinicians discovered the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine. Reporters of lesser understanding manipulated opinion to discredit clinical results for lack of researched confirmation. Confidence in healing protocols that are provided by research typically lags reasoned clinical solutions. However, dearths of research change over time. This Christian Health Service Corps (CHSC) newsletter PDF is linked to Greg Seager‘s compilation of current research that shares current knowledge. We better understand this medication in hand now as dexamethasone, Prazosin, Remdesivir prove their usefulness, and many await vaccines to develop herd immunities. The excerpt shares accumulated research about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19. CHSC newsletters let ministry partners better perceive the scope of CHSC services provided by obedient believers. Together, all can rejoice knowing how co-laboring medical missionaries spread the Gospel through medical care while aware of the sustainable health principles promoted in Community Health Evangelism (CHE).

  • Our Ivorian pastor’s wife in Bondoukou has had a setback in her health. She seemed to be recovering well from a mini-stroke last year, but the family has taken her to Abidjan for evaluation.
