COVID-19 Update: Bishop Hilarión Patón, Bolivia

As in every other region of the world, Covid-19 has hit South America very hard. The quarantine in the nations of South América has been almost total.

Recently, we were informed of a specific prayer need for our national bishop of Bolivia, Hilarión Patón. Brother Patón tested positive for Coronavirus and has been hospitalized in serious condition for some time hoping for improvement. He has been transferred to another hospital that will better minister to his needs. Specific prayer requests include healing prayer for Bishop Paton, grace and peace for his family and his people in Bolivia, and provision for the expenses that are currently due to the hospital for his care.

Bishop Gabriel Vidal, general presbyter from South America, noted recently, “We are seeing the love of Christ among our people during this time of need. We ask you to continue to pray for us in South America and Bishop Patón. We are at this time depending in the strength of our Lord.”

Thank you for your support and your prayers for Bishop Paton and his family. May God bless you and keep you by His grace.


Kids Can Serve the Local Church

Mission giving is a foundational building block to cultivating a life of service. However, we are given the opportunity to introduce “service” lessons that allow our kids a hands-on experience. For ideas for engaging your kids to serve their local church, read this month's blog from Children's Ministries.

KidServe in July: Blessing Retired Ministers

Throughout the month of July, International Children’s Ministries invites kids to submit letters and homemade cards to be forwarded to retired ministers of the Church of God of Prophecy. Kids are invited to write a special message or submit a drawing to help brighten the days of our seniors, many of whom have been isolated for several months. Click the link to "learn more."
