"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:4-7 (NIV)
A Word on Coronavirus
13 March 2020
Dear New Hope family,
We thought it important to say a few words about the Coronavirus that is affecting so many globally.
Firstly, we encourage you to live life to the max and love each other confidently without fear (2 Timothy 1:7) knowing that Jesus is Lord over all!
At the same time we encourage you all to follow basic health precautions like washing your hands thoroughly (20 seconds) and making sure you stay home and seek medical advice if you are experiencing symptoms.
You may have heard through various sources that a member of New Hope staff has tested positive to the virus. This is correct, Coach John was confirmed positive this week at an Outpatient Clinic in Florida.
Coach is in regular contact with the CDC and has self-quarantined and recovering.
Please pray for Coach John, Heidi and Sandy Brock. Heidi is in the care of doctors while at home, and Sandy Brock would benefit from our prayers as she cares for Coach during his recovery. **
All three value your prayers at this time.
Always remember that prayer is available right across New Hope to all and that we serve a miracle working God.
Secondly, we want you to know that you are cared for deeply and you are not on your own but part of a community of faith bonded by the grace and goodness of God.
We are praying for you and know that you are kept by God:
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9)
Love & Care,
New Hope Leadership
**Update 3/18/2020: Coach John & Heidi are feeling much better! Sandy Brock is showing no symptoms! Praise God! Watch Coach John's full update here.
