We’ve just received a message from pastor Ronny Pulgar to say that he and some of his family have developed Covid-19. Ronny says:
Symptoms continue, now fatigue and shortness of breath have been added.
I trust in the Grace and mercy of Christ the Lord. A hug. Your prayers will do us good.
So please do pray for Ronny as a matter of urgency.
More generally the statistics for Chile are not looking good. Although the peak rate of infection has passed, the daily new cases is still high at around 1700, and has not dropped since the beginning of August. The daily deaths has also remained static at around 50 per day. For comparison, the rate in the UK is now down to 10 per day and we have three times the population and ten times the population density of Chile.
Please continue to pray for the government of Chile, for wisdom as it plans to ease restrictions, and for its people in this most difficult of times.
