Mercy Fund Appeal 2020
23rd April 2020 - Please take a little time out of your day to read the letter below regarding the Mercy Fund Appeal from our President, Rev. Ray Lockhart, Rev. Canon Daryl Fenton, Director, CMJ Israel and CMJ UK CEO, Rev. Alex Jacob.
If you feel you can donate to the Mercy Fund, however small the amount, please see our Facebook fundraising page.
CMJ UK are concerned, along with millions of others around the World, about the spread of Covid-19.
In view of the latest announcement from the Government on 23rd March 2020 we are increasing the preventive measures in place at our Office to stop the spread.
As a result of this:
- A member of staff will be available to answer the Office phone between 9.00am and 1.00pm. There will be an answerphone available outside those times and you are welcome to leave a message.
- Staff are working from home, where this is suitable, and we hope to be able to respond to emails in the normal way.
- We will keep you updated if there is any change in our ability to serve you.
We are aware that in this time of change there are many blessings as people reflect on their situation. The Church of England have reported that many millions listened online on Sunday. One of our evangelists shares the following for your encouragement:
I recently met an elderly Jewish lady in the street walking very slowly. I asked if she was okay and had all the provisions she needed. She said she was in her nineties, living alone, and her family were unable to help. I offered to get shopping and she said, “You’re an angel sent from heaven!” I said that the Lord had certainly sent me and that I had been praying about whom I could help in this crisis. The Lord's timing is perfect!
Our hearts and prayers go out to all who are ill and seriously impacted by the Covid-19 situation, the many who are also providing essential services and healthcare at this testing time and our colleagues in Israel being a Christian witness in that land to the many Jewish people who are in need at this time.
May the Messiah be your stronghold for these uncertain times and may all the blessings of Emmanuel (God with us) be our comfort.
Rev Alex Jacob
