How Rafiki is Handling the Coronavirus

Some of you are asking for an update on Rafiki and so I thought I’d give you a brief one. The main thing you need to know is that God is faithful and we are able to continue to operate and serve during these times..

At our Home Office in Florida we have staff working from home and others working at our offices—all within local social distancing guidelines of course. And our work goes on; preparing curriculum, Bible study, container shipments, shipping widows products and Rafiki Bible Study, and supporting and leading the work in Africa..

In our ten Rafiki Villages, ministry goes on. Orphans are being cared for and even though the schools are closed in all ten countries, our missionaries and national staff are finding creative ways to provide the Bible study and education to day students, orphans on homestay, RICE students, and national staff. See the photo of packets of materials (school work and Bible study) that were left outside the gate at our Village in Kenya for students to pick up for continuing their studies.

By God’s grace we continue to pay all of our national employees at this time as well.

We recently had a unique opportunity right here in central Florida to help out with the COVID 19 crisis. A call went out from a hospital in our area for scrub caps. By God’s providence we heard about it, and guess what—we have scrub caps! How, you say? Well last year we ordered scrubs and caps to be made by women in our Widows Program in Nigeria and they arrived in January. This is a group of HIV positive women who make wonderful products that we have been marketing for years.

The minute we heard of this need, we gathered and delivered all the scrub caps we had for the hospital staff. See the attached photos. What a joy and privilege for us.

While this is a difficult and tragic time for some, we are grateful to God for the healthcare providers and all those on the front lines of this virus outbreak.

We pray for you also. We also know that God will use this for good and we will be ready by God’s grace to move forward with our mission to help cultivate a multitude of godly contributors in Africa and beyond through the study of God’s Word in the Rafiki Bible Study, and through great Christian classical education.

We are very grateful to all of you for your continued prayers and support during this time.

Yours in Christ,
Karen J. Elliott Executive Director
