Dubai, United Arab Emirates
We have been blessed by the faithfulness of our members to online church where practically all of our ministries are operating on one of the platforms — even our children’s church, which was the last to go online and was very well received. Our Bible studies on Fridays, where recently we had up to 70 members and friends join — twice as many as would have physically joined at Bible study sessions, are especially blessed. Places of worship have not been opened in Dubai yet, and we patiently wait for the government’s decision on this matter. We had two members test positive for COVID-19, but both has since been cleared after a period of isolation. A big concern for our church leadership is providing support for people that had been retrenched and face the decision to return to their home countries.
