/ -- The coronavirus pandemic hasn't shut down the proclamation of the Gospel through GO2020's worldwide outreach. The coronavirus has infected over 2.5 million people and killed over 175,000 people. Although social distancing guidelines have been set in place by governments to stop outbreaks, millions of Christians are being mobilized to reach one billion people for Christ through GO2020.
GO2020 is a special edition of Global Outreach Day. Despite the massive restrictions on public gatherings, the outreach has pivoted to online campaigns combined with offline caring outreaches. "People are dying, and many people are afraid because of the coronavirus," said Werner Nachtigal, founder of Global Outreach Day. "This crisis could turn into the greatest hour for the church. In this time, as believers, we pray for the world. We care for the people. And we share Christ in the midst of the crisis."
In South Africa, Rev. Lulu Nakana is spearheading an effort to get 15 million digital conversations about the Gospel during the month of May. Dominican Republic police asked for assistance from Global Outreach Day coordinator Joel Jiménez to distribute food to needy residents in a village of 5,000 people. Rev. Jiménez distributed gospel tracts with groceries to individuals with a message to stay home and read the Gospel.
Training sessions to equip Christians to share their faith are taking place online. Worldwide prayer meetings and a series of healing explosion webinars to train Christians in the ministry of healing to prepare for the Month of Miracles in May are also taking place.
