During this period of global concern about the COVID-19 virus, we want to let you know that at present, none of our FMWM missionary team or national leaders are known to have contracted the virus. FMWM staff and Area Directors receive a daily briefing via email provided by safety and security experts to help us stay informed of concerns that could impact FM personnel. We’re not looking to engage in the “safest” ministry, but to go where the Holy Spirit is leading. As we go into more and more difficult places, we believe it’s prudent to mitigate risks wisely, but not fearfully.
In consultation with the FMC-USA Board of Bishops and FMWM Leadership it has been decided that all short-term ministry trips are to be postponed at this time. Our goal is to resume sending volunteers again after August 1, 2020, however, we will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates should the situation change.
