While we as a church are thankful for the technology that allows us members to have regular Sunday and midweek services, we long for the time when we can once again gather together in the chapel. The online services cannot replace, or ever be a substitute for the gathered church. Not only are we physically apart, but the present situation means that our outreach and visitation ministries are not continuing for they cannot be conducted through technology. Even so, this is all of the Lord for His good purposes. It also causes us to reflect on the Lord’s goodness and kindness to this country as we have long enjoyed such freedoms, while helping us all the more to pray for our fellow believers who due to persecution and/or censorship continue to endure way beyond anything we at this present time experience.
