COVID-19: A message from our CEO Graham Brown

COVID-19: A message from our CEO Graham Brown

 

Greetings to you all

 

In these very challenging and unprecedented times, Baptist Care SA is continuing to work with and on behalf of the Baptist Churches of SA.

I have recorded a special video message to provide some insight into how Baptist Care SA is responding to this emergency.

 

  

When you have listened to this, please consider the following:

 

We seek your support for the following:

  • Donations of household cleaning products and food items such as…
    • Bottled water
    • Takeaway containers, coffee cups and cutlery
    • Cereal
    • Meats
    • Tinned coffee (large)
    • Tea bags
    • Milk (fresh, long life and powdered)
    • Vegetables
  • Our limited resources are very stretched at this time and many of those we work with are high risk. If you can help, please deliver items to our WestCare Centre, 11 – 19 Millers Court, Adelaide (off Wright Street)
  • We are incurring a lot of additional costs at the moment. If you have capacity, please be generous and help us to step-up and do what is required. Click here to make a donation.

 

I invite you to

  • pray earnestly that vulnerable people might experience grace and support
  • pray for courage and creativity amongst our staff and volunteers as they face the daily challenge of find new ways to support our clients
  • pray for wisdom for our State, National and Global leaders and give thanks for the skills of our medical researchers and practitioners

 

On behalf of the Australian Council of Churches, I also invite you to join into the national call to prayer each day at 5pm.

 

Gracious God, 

We give thanks anew for your providence and presence. 

We prayerfully seek your grace, amidst COVID-19 here and overseas. 

We pray for those in need of healing. 

We pray for your peace with those who are anxious or grieving. 

We pray you will continue to strengthen and sustain all those who are serving in response. 

We pray for your Holy Spirit’s discernment amidst the many choices and decisions facing our national, community and medical leaders. 

We pray we each might see quickly what more we can do to help those who are vulnerable. 

This prayer for our nation in the family of nations, with all that is on our hearts, we gather now and pray through Jesus Christ our Lord.

AMEN. 

 

I also draw the following to your attention to the call for a National Day of Prayer and Fasting on Sunday 29 March. 

 

Blessings to you all and to your families as we all move through this challenging time together.

 

Graham Brown

CEO, Baptist Care SA
