An Update From the Philippines

philippines-31013_640

Last Sunday, most churches did not meet to gather for worship in Metro Manila. The government ordered the restriction of mass gathering events starting March 15 to April 15. I led a contemplative worship online and planned to do it for a month. Then suddenly this afternoon, the whole of Metro Manila is placed on lockdown. We are forced to stay home.

I prayed to slow down and welcomed cancellation of my several travels to spend more time in prayer, writing and planning on what’s next for Mercy and me in this decade. But staying in our home for a month is not what I asked the Lord.

I don’t know what opportunity this virus-crisis will bring. Working from the sideline is not easy. I can only say now that perhaps God wants to make many global servants of the Lord realize that great things will happen in His Kingdom when they are on the sideline.

We all need godly wisdom to serve in this period of not being able to do what we prayed for and planned. Maybe God wants to bring success in our ministries by making us feel “useless.”

In prayer…
