OMS Canada and COVID-19
OMS Canada and OMS Global take the novel coronavirus or COVID-19 very seriously.
We continue to monitor our workers and the situation in the countries where they serve. Should any sort of intervention be necessary, we will take the appropriate action.
OMS Canada has had for more than a year the ability to work remotely. Each of our workers are able to connect to the OMS Canada network to access software and electronic files as well as to use the office printer. There will be periodic quick visits to the office to ensure things are running smoothly.
Our phone system also permits each employee to receive their phone calls in their home office as well. So don't hesitate to give us a call if you need to speak about something.
We also continue to receive and process donations to OMS Canada for your missionary's work or the Starfish Kids program or for a project we have undertaken among the nations. You may donate online or you may continue to send your cheques to the office in Burlington.
Take comfort in the fact that, even though you may not be able to get together with those you love and support, we can be together in prayer.
Here are some specific things you can pray in the light of COVID-19:
1. Stop the spread of the COVID-19
2. For those who are sick and their families dealing with it
3. Healthcare workers and other professions impacted
4. Grieving families
5. Pastors and church leaders
6. The worldwide body of Christ to be a light
7. Government officials and decision-makers
8. People globally who don't know how to handle the situation, have no peace
9. Our missionaries and coworkers worldwide
10. For every person who does not know Jesus
