Next, check out how has been the last months of missionary Douglas Lamp, who, together with his family, serves in the city of Natal, Rio Grande do Norte.

For pastors, it is hard to believe the impacts of Covid-19 on the world, people’s lives and agendas. Bike tours unite physical exercise and reflections on the future of the ministry.

The moment calls for adaptations and to compensate for the fall in the finances of his church, for example, Pastor Marcos has prepared and sold pizzas.

During these times of pandemic and social isolation, Douglas has cycled quite often. He is accompanied by his friends – pastors Marcos and Nilson – each with his mask and bicycle.

One of the fruits of these tours was the idea of comworking a booklet with the objective of guiding the leaders of the region regarding ministerial actions in coronavirus times.

The authors were ten pastors who wrote, in simple language, practical ideas consolidated in a material entitled “Strengthening and fruiting in a pandemic – Performance of churches and ministries in the context of post-isolation”. Distribution is scheduled for August. The material includes chapters that address topics such as: hygiene care and prevention in the space of the local church and in the ministry. The importance and limits of technology and the Internet to fulfill the mission of the local Church, among others.

Let us pray that God will continue to use missionaries Douglas and Barbara Lamp in Natal-RN.
