Things are very difficult because of Coronavirus in the world and current situation is beyond our control. We know as a believer we put our trust in God who has promised, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
We need to pray to God for his saving hands for the world. Hopefully you are doing well in this difficult situation.
I just want to share with you that I was supposed to come back to Eastbourne from Pakistan on24th March. But, unfortunately, this is not possible now due to coronavirus. I tried my best to come back to UK, two weeks ago, but I came to know from the head office of PIA (Pakistan International Airlines) that it was impossible to change any flight due to the Covid-19 panic, none of the earliest tickets were available. We were counting down the days to come back to Eastbourne but we were very disappointed yesterday to hear that: “PIA is suspending all international flight operations to Pakistan from March 21, 2020, 8PM PST to April 4, 2020, 8 PM PST as per the directives of Government of Pakistan.”
After hearing this alarming news we immediately went to PIA head office and requested them to Book our seats ASAP.
Please remember me and Shon in your prayers and thoughts. I also want to assure you that you all are in our daily prayers. May God always bless you and keep us safe.
So many prayers and good wishes from me, Shon, and from my family especially from my mother to you all.
I am grateful to God for the blessing of electronic media with the help of which I am still able to communicate with you all.
I just want to share with you a passage from Isaiah 26:20,
“Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by.”
As Jesus also says in Matthew 6:6 “When you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
I want to encourage all of youl that we need to spend more time in prayers, reading bible and if possible having fast during this crucial time.
