“This is both a test of faith and resolve and a great opportunity to spread peace and hope.”

Our world has been broken.

Yet we are woven together

Interserve June Appeal 2020

Thank you! Together, we reached over $250,000!

Right now the official tally for Interserve’s Broken Together, Woven Whole Appeal is $284,068! Thank you so much for your support, and we are grateful to God for his provision.

Most importantly, every dollar will help Interservers to keep on serving people on the margins.

We know that this represents sacrificial giving for many of you in these challenging times. Thank you for all your generosity.

Your support is making a tangible difference in the lives of people in Asia and the Arab world.

Providing employment

Our staff are very happy to be back at work. The day that the cafe reopened I received a video call from our head manager. He was grinning from ear to ear as he was walking me around the cafe and I chatted with the staff who were sorting coffee beans to keep productive. Give thanks that the cafe can open again and that staff morale is high. We thank all of you for your support in all the forms you give it.

Staying connected

In the barrenness of connection and purpose, we hold on tightly to glimpses of perspective: The children of international serving families who can continue their schooling by remote learning. The reconnection with our house helper and her family who come to maintain the outside of our house. One of the school security guards whom we have had a long relationship with, expressed surprise & seemed touched by us still being here. The few kids that shared our Frisbee at the shopping centre field. The neighbour who would like me to be a part of his small wedding group. The remote Sunday school team that Vanessa and the kids can participate with. The remote small group of teachers that Vanessa prays with, and the middle school girls’ small group for social, emotional & spiritual support that Vanessa helps co-lead via video connection. The other international family here, for whom we give mutual support and feeling of connectedness. The inspiration of a group of young adults at our local church who pack and distribute groceries to poor communities each week, giving aid for now and making kingdom investments.  They move us to support with them in prayer. The drive through our old neighbourhood a few days ago, happening to see and chat with our old helper on the road. And the reminder that this is where God has led us and now sustains us.

Preparing our hospitals

Dr Sonya designed a leaflet with home care instructions. Dr Kris explains:

“We give this leaflet to anyone who has suspicious symptoms but doesn’t require hospital admission, so families can provide home care. If you see the little drawing with a heart in the speech bubble, that translates to “make sure the patient knows you love them!”

Dr Sonya & Dr Kris, South Asia

Amid uncertainty and fear, God’s promises offer a sure and certain hope.

We know and trust that God loves the world deeply (Jn 3:16). We also trust His call to love the world; being willing even to lay down our lives for others, just as Christ did for us (1 Jn 3:16).

Thank you for partnering with us.

Together, we’ll keep on serving people on the margins, through and beyond COVID-19.
