(Open Doors) Throughout the world, COVID-19 and the lockdowns that prevented people from working for months has created a global crisis. Recently, our ministry partners shared about the risks they and other pastors in Colombia are taking to bring food, supplies and Bibles to the towns and villagers they serve.
Every day, Pastor Leandro Holguin* walks through the streets of towns and villages in Colombia, handing out food packages, masks, antibacterial gel and Bibles to believers and non-believers alike. Pastor Leandro has been a facilitator for Open Doors’ programs in Colombia for the last 10 years.
He recently shared about the situation in the areas he serves (we must keep his location secret for his and others’ safety): “We have been able to bring food to many people. Those who can’t work are very depressed and face serious financial difficulties. We pray for and with them. We offer them pastoral guidance and share the Word of God with each one of them.”
During the pandemic, many people have come to faith in Jesus, he said: “It brings me so much joy.”
