The Lord has blessed us in that He has provided everything we may have ever needed during this time – even with finances. While it was physically impossible to stockpile supplies in our RV, the Lord has allowed us to find paper goods and other necessities in stock when we needed them.
Our meetings for April have paused and it seems like we will do the same in May. It is still uncertain if that will be the case as we await on the official mandates from the White House. During the stay-at-home order, we have been staying at Salem Baptist Church in Salem, Oregon where they have full RV connections – Electricity, Water, Sewer – which have been a huge blessing. They also have a nice, big parking lot where our children can ride their bikes and scooters. I have also been participating with their livestream services and helped get them situated with proper software to do the job.
I can recall a time similar to this COVID-19 panic when a missionary came to our church to speak in 2008. His words were, “I have heard many say that we are in the midst of a recession. I am here to inform you that I am not going to take part in this recession. The Bible says, ‘But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.’ I am not going to take part because I am also going to increase my contributions to world-wide evangelization. The Bible also says, ‘He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.'” God used missionary Don Sisk to challenge me that I can trust Him even in the midst of uncertainty.
While we may be living in uncertain times, we still have the same certain God who never changes. My Lord knows the way through the wilderness; all I have to do is follow.
