Mission Cry’s Missional Response to Coronavirus Plague

Even as the U.S. braces for one of the worst weeks since the COVID-19 crisis began, ministries are mobilizing their responses using their areas of influence.

Sometimes, the connections aren’t immediate. For others, existing networks and partnerships expedite a hastily-assembled plan of action. The same is true for Mission Cry, which is today sending out two sea containers to mainland China by way of Hong Kong and Shenzhen.

Why respond?

Executive Director Reverend Jason Woolford explains why he moved urgently to prepare sea containers. “There are going to be over 100,000 people impacted with the Gospel there. I can’t imagine what it would be like to not be saved in and be at Ground Zero (the epicenter of the pandemic), but then what it is to be saved and be forgotten about… This is a great way for people to truly be missions-minded: giving somebody a Bible and a Christian book that wanted to have it.”

The pandemic has wreaked havoc on global economies, healthcare systems, and infrastructure, as well as taken its toll on families. People are desperate for hope. In the silence of a deserted marketplace, it is the Christians who are using technology to reach out. As the lockdown in China lifts, face to face interactions build on the relationships begun in quarantine. They’re going to need resources to share.
