We would like to share with you our latest update, kindly find it in the above attachment, as we hold onto our faith and hope in Jesus in the midst of the current situation. Since after writing this report and sending it, Jordan has declared a mandatory curfew started this morning at 7:00AM until further notice.
“But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect – life in its fullness until you overflow!” John 10:10 (TPT)

Standing In Faith Against the Coronavirus
“A thief has only one thing in mind – he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect – life in its fullness until you overflow!”
King Abdullah has approved a national defense law to help combat the coronavirus pandemic. The royal decree issued on Tuesday in an effort to curb coronavirus in Jordan. Measures taken in recent days have closed schools and public transport, and prayers have been banned in mosques, while most public and private sector employees have been asked to stay at home.
Jordan announced a lockdown beginning on Wednesday, ordering all citizens to stay in their homes apart from emergencies and banning travel between provinces, to fight the coronavirus outbreak.
Jordan has closed land and sea border crossings with Syria, Iraq, Egypt, and Israel, and suspended all incoming and outgoing flights since Tuesday. Only cargo flights and commercial overland shipments are entering or leaving the country.
The country has quarantined more than 5,000 people who have recently arrived from abroad. Jordan recorded 85 confirmed cases of coronavirus on Friday the 20th of March, 2020.
“And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
For Such a Time As This
It’s the time for us to take a stand a gainst the spread of the coronavirus, it’s time for the Church to rise up and cry out to God for mercy; as when Esther went before the king, we stand as the Ekklesia before the King of Glory! Let us stretch out His rod of authority out of Zion and rebuke the Coronavirus in united corporate agreement, believing in faith that the storm will abate, and 2020 will go down as the year of the historic harvest and missions worldwide.
Our Role as Manara
We have a big role to play at this time, starting with sharing a message of hope and encouragement to our brothers and sisters within our circles of ministry and support. Using what we have of resources to help as many people as we can during this turbulent time. As for the Youth Ministry, the various teams are working as planned for 2020 calendar with an eye open on the current local situation and progress. The Lord has been leading us to focus on digital ministry platform to spread The Gospel and extend discipleship to the young generation, in light of the recent developments we are accelerating these platforms. We are currently working on an App that offers opportunities to engage with the Gospel, ask questions, grow and join communities using Manara’s extensive experience with the local communities within Jordan and the region. Keep us in your prayers and support as the Lord guides you.
