Responding to Coronavirus

Resources, stories and prayer requests for students

The global Coronavirus pandemic is having a big impact on our fellowship, how we do our ministry and the context we’re working in.

Some international students have suddenly found themselves stuck and isolated far from home. Many universities are moving their teaching online, but for countries with less resources and internet, this isn’t possible.

The good news: students are keeping going and the gospel is still true. Many are meeting online to do evangelistic events, study the Bible and pray together. Opportunities abound to continue to witness to Christ among students and so our mission together continues.

On this page you’ll find resources, stories and prayer requests from around the world as we respond to this pandemic.
