During this coronavirus pandemic we are rightly concerned about our physical health and the symptoms of the virus, but we also need to keep mentally strong and healthy during this crisis. Wednesday we'll visit with Moody Bible Institute Assistant Professor Dr. Deb Gorton about ways to care for our mental health during this constantly changing world pandemic and how to help others that are struggle with depression and anxiety.
As we consider slower days in isolation, our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world face hardship daily in addition to COVID 19. Be listening Wednesday as we get an update on an Iranian Christian who is facing extended exile without any chance to appeal or be heard on the matter. Todd Nettleton will fill us in on that story as well as providing other up to date information from the persecuted church around the world.
