Responding to COVID-19

(Above, a special message from Dr. Jeff Adams, Board Chair, Christar U.S.)

As COVID-19 continues to spread and the world collectively holds its breath and washes its hands, we wait. We grieve with our communities near and far that are experiencing loss of freedom and facing the fragility of life immersed in the suspense of the unknown. We watch. And still we believe that while everything feels upside down, there is a solid foundation for hope in the unshakeable reality that God is still sovereignly in control over all that is unfolding.

Christar is closely monitoring CDC and U.S. State Department recommendations and directives as they evolve. Our international leadership continues to evaluate the situation in the regions throughout the world where Christar workers serve and are taking appropriate steps to assure their safety.

  • Short-term mobilization to any field has been suspended until further notice.
  • All mid-term and long-term departures are suspended until further notice.
  • 2020 trainings have been rescheduled. Please contact [email protected] for more information.

In the U.S., our leadership team is taking precautions to ensure that our global community continues to be well-served and supported. All business travel to locations overseas from the U.S. has been suspended indefinitely. Many of our office staff are now working from home, and we are thankful for the technology that allows us to continue to work from a distance. Within our office and at home, we continue to practice social distancing, hand-washing and monitoring for symptoms. Gifts and donations will continue to be processed. Our staff will continue to be available to actively serve our workers, potential workers and our ministry partners.

We remember that our God and the mission of the Church remain unchanged in the midst of the current crisis. COVID-19 has brought new realities to our lives that will leave a lasting impact on our future. But right now, in the present, the eternal hope of those around us remains in the balance. We dare not lose sight of that truth as we seek to wisely, lovingly and prayerfully respond to the crisis around us.

We have not passed this way before, but our God already knows the end from the beginning. He is already redeeming and transforming even this crisis for His glory. We trust Him and follow.
