YMI's response to COVID-19

Dear Friends of YMI:

YMI is very aware of the concerns brought about by COVID-19.  Our home office and leadership team are monitoring the situation in each and every country/field. Our communication effort regarding every ministry of all of our missionaries and national workers is active and ongoing. Our missionaries and their families are our first and foremost concern.

At this time, there are no known cases of coronavirus among our missionary families.

Through all of this, we know that God is in control. We invite you to join with YMI in praying that God will use this crisis to soften hearts to the gospel and that our missionaries, national workers, and believers around the world, will have opportunities to share the peace that only God can provide (Phil.4:7). This virus cannot deter our motivation to reach the 2.3 billion youth in the world who do not know Jesus!

Through this difficult time, we know that your lives are also being impacted. We are praying for you and we thank you for your continued support of YMI missionaries, projects, and staff. We praise God for your prayers and gifts! In times like these, YMI cannot continue without your partnership.

May we continue to pray for each other,
