John and I live in a huge retirement complex. Management have done much to secure residents' safety. We have employed a senior nurse to live with us for some months. We have everything medically needed to keep us alive. John will soon be 89 and has health problems. I am 82 and hampered by arthritis. We are Christians and thank the Lord for that! But we would both like a little more time to continue Christian writing, and I composing!
Not far away are informal settlements with vast areas of squatter camps: shacks built of corrugated iron, not new and gleaming, but rusted and patched with anything people can lay their hands on. It is from these places that a large proportion of manual workers come. And just as each year fires rip through these areas, so too will the fire of COVID-19. One cannot even imagine the suffering and sorrow. And so many of them our Christian brothers and sisters. Please pray for them!
As Christians we must be strong and courageous, must not fear because our Lord goes with us, wherever we are, and whatever trauma we are experiencing.
Some years ago I wrote a little song called DO NO FEAR.

Our Lord God has a plan for all his children. Praise his glorious Name!
