Special Announcement about Ellel Ministries and Covid-19
23rd March 2020
Some of you may have already heard that Ellel Ministries in the UK has had to temporarily suspend all activities at its UK Centres.
Considering the increasing Government decisions and restrictions that are being put in place around the world… we also felt it was only appropriate to ensure that Ellel South Africa follows suit and does whatever is necessary to ensure the spread of this virus is contained. In order to help protect our guests, school attendees, our own team, and the greater community, the only right decision was to pause all on-site operations at Ellel South Africa until late July. This means that all courses, schools, healing retreats and personal ministry appointments, between now and the end of July have had to be either postponed or cancelled.
We have not made this decision lightly. Nor did we make this decision without first hearing the Lord speak into this scenario. Without a doubt, the Lord has been clear in directing us as a ministry to close for a four-month window.
As a direct result of this virus and the need to temporarily pause activities, we will be facing a major financial difficulty. Even though we will have to make sensible decisions during this testing period of time, every effort will be made to maintain our staff levels in preparation for the time when we are able to re-open our doors.
“… but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen…” (Matt 24:6 NIV).
We will be shortly emailing all of our faithful supporters asking for help to cover the funds lost through having to cancel courses and schools. Please be watchful for that appeal when it gets underway and be asking the Lord even now, how you may be able to bless the ministry financially at this crucial time.
A New Online Teaching Opportunity!
In these extraordinary times, people will need more help than ever. We are therefore making plans to expand our online teaching programs to be available to all. This will be an exciting opportunity and we would really value your prayers.
We will post updates to keep you informed.
May the Lord be with us all during these unprecedented times.
