In closing, my heart goes out to the members of our community who have experienced illness and loss due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak. Our whole world has truly been blindsided by this catastrophic virus. My prayer is that each of you will continue to be safe and well and most importantly, secure in the knowledge that with God’s guidance, we will make it through this whole experience very soon.
