Beloved Christ Lovers!

I will like to bring to your notice…….. The Novel Corona virus also known as Covid-19 has been spreading worldwide and WHO has declared a Global Pandemic, meaning the entire world is affected at the same time in Canada, as of March 13th, 2020, we have about 152 confirmed cases. Alberta alone has 23 confirmed cases and most of these cases are in the Calgary area

As the bible says in Hosea 4:6a “My people are destroyed for lack of Knowledge”, we want every one of us to be aware and follow the news for constant updates and take every necessary precaution against this Global pandemic. At the same time, do not panic or be in fear for the bible says in John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart I have overcome the world”
