Today with nationwide closings and transportation warnings due to COVID-19, we all should monitor the changes and do our part by following orders that our states and the President have put in place. It is our responsibility to use wisdom to keep our friends and loved ones safe while following social distancing guidelines. We invite you to join us in prayer, asking God to bring healing and to open our lands again. We want to work in His grace and with His guiding hand, we pray that this down time will allow us to hear where He is leading us.

In an effort to help combat the ongoing need caused by COVID-19, ICR has donated over 200 M95 masks, 2 cases of exam gloves, face shields and goggles to Harnett Central in North Carolina. If you would like to help with our efforts, please reach out via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or through our Facebook page.
For now, ICR has postponed international travel, therefore we are tentatively planning a domestic trip to Bertie County, North Carolina in June. We will continue to monitor the situation at hand and determine if we need to change any further plans. Our primary concern is the safety of our teams and not spreading infection.
Our team had a great trip to Jamaica. They visited 4 churches and saw 264 people; this was a great way to spread healing medically and spiritually! Since our team arrived home our support staff placed themselves in a 2-week quarantine just to be safe and all is good! Be sure to visit our “Past Trips” tab on our website to see some photos from the trip.
Dr. Joe is currently doing telemedicine through Campbell Clinic for students and staff that are in need of medical attention and we all are continuing our roles within ICR.
Blessings and thank you for your prayers and support,
The ICR Staff
