Dear family and friends,

As you all know, the Corona virus outbreak is happening in America and the world. I also know that this viral outbreak has affected every church in some way. It might be affecting fellowship gatherings, causing low church attendance, dealing with health problems in your church, and people fearing the unknown.  As we deal with these things, we all need to remember that God is in control. We need to remember that we are commanded to walk by faith and not by sight. (Heb. 11:1; Romans 1:17). This is a time we need not to doubt God but need to all be doing our part in helping with this situation. We need to pray for one another, encourage one another, help one another and trust God with everything that is going on. I love this verse, Proverbs 16:20 “He that handles a matter wisely shall find good; and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.” Reading this verse helped me with my judgement in making this decision. Due to this virus and the safety of my family (especially my wife who has a low immune system) I believe that it is best for my family and I to hold off with deputation for now until the summer. Lord willing, the heat in the summer will help slow down the spread of this virus. We are now 72% supported. Praise the Lord! At this time, I am planning to spend more time with my family, studying the Bible more, helping the members of our Cocopah church, and doing more one on one Bible studies. Keep us in your prayers as we pray for you all. Take Care and God Bless You AllSincerely, The Jones family Missionaries to the Native AmericansCol. 1:18(928) 315-5057
