Corona-Virus Twins Tours Update News
Dear Friends of Twins Tours, It has been a pleasure to know each one of you and to study the Bible together. I’ve always strived to provide more than short tours but to establish a lasting relationship. I believe one day we will spend eternity together and these relationships will remain when even the sun and the moon pass away. I am incredibly thankful for your messages of encouragement and prayer. The global pandemic and travel restrictions have resulted in canceling or postponing several months of our tours. By the grace of God, Twins Tours is going to weather this storm and though we basically have no income for the next few months, we believe we are supposed to keep our staff employed as much as possible. We will likely reduce hours of course but we really believe that in a few months when this virus is defeated, we will need them again for the many tours we plan to operate. Our team, with their spouses and children, are very thankful for the requests now being received from clients and friends of Twins Tours throughout the world to bless them with emergency gifts to help them financially through this difficult season. We are so grateful for our relationships and we are blessed beyond belief that 2,000 years later, the body of Christ is once again wanting to send relief to the saints in Jerusalem! It’s humbling and brings tears to my eyes. As I’ve mentioned a few times, relationships are key. Therefore we suggest your gift also be an adoption of one of the families below. I ask that you pray for the family. I ask that you think of them every time you send aid.
