Missionary Update from Paul Poirier:

Poirier Pic

"As I minister as a chaplain in the hospital during these difficult times more staff have reached out to me, acknowledging their desperate need for prayer, as they take care of COVID-19 patients. This has been a wonderful time of ministry to staff and to patients who are open to spiritual counsel and comfort.

One area of ministry which has broken my heart during the COVID-19 virus is that I have not been able to visit in the Skilled Nursing Facilities.   I do not have the private phone numbers of most of the residents in the nursing homes, so my phone communication has been very limited.  Please pray that I will be able to visit soon again.  One of the nursing homes I visit experienced a high number of people that contracted COVID-19 and several deaths occurred as a result.  Some of the residents that have died where in my Bible study group. I feel sorrow from losing them, and will miss them greatly, but I also rejoice that they are now in the presence of their Lord, and I will see them again.  Please pray that healing with sweep throughout the facilities, so visitation will once again be open to the public, and group activities will once again be aloud. Please also pray that I will be able to contact more individuals by phone.

Thank you for your continued faithful prayers as I minister to people who are suffering and lonely, and in need of God’s love and comfort."
