After a great deal of though and prayer we have decided to postpone the Friends Forever Club that we scheduled for 3/13/2020.
It pains me to make this announcement; spending Friday nights with this group has become my favorite social activity and I hate to postpone any events. However we do serve a population that, in many cases, is at a higher risk if infected. In an effort to be as safe as possible we will be postponing tomorrows event.
Attached you will find a document that details ways to prevent this virus. One that stands out to me is:
Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least.
Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach.
Once there, your stomach acid will kill the virus. If you don’t drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That’s very dangerous.
Thank you all for being understanding. I know this can and will be challenging for folks who have already planned on attending our event.
I also encourage everyone to join us in praying for those who are effected by this virus. And also please keep the folks in mind that live in situations of poverty all around the world who will be deeply effected by this.
Please call me if you have any questions.
Hope to see you all soon,
