In a ‘letter to the Virgin Islands’ titled Peace in the Midst of the Storm today, July 15, 2021, the BVI Christian Council (BVICC) expressed empathy to “everyone in these beautiful Virgin Islands in these trying times” and also sent out condolences to the families who have lost loved ones due to COVID-19.
There have been 6 COVID-19 related deaths in the VI, including 2 on July 14, 2021.
“At present, we may be sailing through rough waters, but we wish to remind you that the word of God in Jeremiah 32:27 says…. ‘Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh, is there anything too hard for me?’ The answer is ‘No’, there is absolutely nothing too hard for our God to do. Our God is well able to bring healing to our land.”
The BVICC also said it was praying for healing for those who have been infected with coronavirus.
“To the general public, if we stay together in the unity of the spirit and pray together with one heart, our God will hear and answer our cry. Let us look to Jesus and call on Him. God says in Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto me and I will answer thee….” As we continue to repent before the Lord, call unto him and continue to live for him, He will hear our cry and heal our land.”
The BVICC said it will continue to pray for the Government that God will guide them in the right direction.
“We continue to appeal to everyone to take responsibility and be proactive.
“Consider your ways, adhere to protocols, the life you save might be your very own. May God continue to bless our land and bring swift healing in the name of Jesus Christ our King,” the BVICC said.
