Corona Virus – A thought

Corona Virus seems to have taken over the worlds attention, however amidst the panic and fear spread from social media it is important to keep things in perspective, follow sensible guidelines and if possible take notice of the positive aspects

If you have to “self-isolate” then use the time to do things you are normally too busy to appreciate. Read a book (the Bible is a good place to start), listen to music, finish a project you started, get to know your friends and family better, spend time talking to others, enjoy the sunshine and signs of spring that are all around you.

Let’s also be aware of our neighbours, especially the vulnerable, who may need extra support at the moment or may be feeling lonely or anxious. Pick up the phone and check in with them

Please don’t panic buy or stockpile. Many people can’t afford to do this and so when they need basic supplies the shelves are empty.

At Computers for Charities we will be carrying on as normal. Praying for those who are ill, for the health care workers who are dealing with this and our government officials, with wisdom for decisions making.

CfC is offering practical support where practible. If you would like us to pray for you or you need practical help, please get in touch.

But praise remains for the Spanish and Asbastos College in Valencia as the program continues for another two years.

In March we welcome more students from Valencia and trust others will also wish to seek such a golden opportunity. Plus for us, a day in the Sunshine is always welcome. Thank you Asbastos

Happy New Year 2020

Happy New Year to you all. A late update on our Shoebox appeal. Again many thanks for all the support.
Sadly 2019 was the last year for our Sprinter Van to make such journeys. 4000 miles this time around. So a newer replacement is now needed.
But again amazing the reception in all the countries visited. Children and Adults in many places from schools to hospitals have benefitted from such generosity,

Well done from us all at Computers for Charities and futher afield… Plus Congratulations to my Dad & Mum. Wedded 65 years today!
