LOVING GOD and LOVING PEOPLE

THIS IS LOVE IN ACTION

The global pandemic has impacted the areas we work among the least reached, and the impact is devastating. Petros Network leaders and health teams are fearlessly serving on the frontlines — sharing the Kingdom Life and offering compassion and care with sanitation training, food, soap, and other tangible support. This is love in action!

WHAT WE DO KNOW

There is much we don’t know about Covid-19, but this is what we do know:

  • Our communities are communal – Social distancing is a foreign concept
  • The people are poor – Starvation and sickness is the norm
  • Healthcare is bad – Villagers are afraid to go to the doctor. They believe that is where you go to die.
  • Economies are fragile – Marketplaces are closed, and there are no government bailouts!

Bottom-line, disaster is imminent.

THIS IS HOW WE LOVE

Motivated by our faith in Jesus Christ, we serve all people. No matter their religion, ethnicity, or gender. We have educated our leaders, distributed soap and food, and cared for the sick in our medical clinic in Gojo, Ethiopia. Area leaders report people are coming to Christ in droves as He is the only place they can put their trust.

THIS IS HOW YOU CAN SHOW LOVE

You can help too! We need your prayers, and we need your support. One isn’t more important than the other! We know that Jesus is our only hope and when we show tangible love, hearts are opened.

  1. Hello!
    I am just writing to see if our donation of $1400 was included in a recent donation from Parker Evangelical Presbyterian Church for your COVID-19 relief fund. We decided to send the money we had been saving for a mission trip. Thank you for letting us know.
    Blessings,
    Cindy and Steve Zimmermann
