The last several days have been strange and stressful for everyone.

All of us are trying to adjust to the new reality of quarantine, social distance, and dealing with the threat of COVID-19. It’s unlike anything we’ve seen before, and that makes things more difficult.

You might wonder what a nonprofit group devoted to faith and family has to do with a pandemic. I wondered myself until I saw so many people expressing their concerns about what we’re going through.

First, I want to assure you that CAAP is still working. We have implemented safe measures to ensure that our staff can continue their duties from home. Our Gala was held before the advisory against social gatherings, but we have suspended all events for the near future. You’ll still hear from us via newsletters and social media. And you can expect us to continue defending family values and religious freedom. We may be practicing social distancing, but we’re not taking a vacation.

It is clear to me that there is great anxiety out there about what this health crisis will mean to our country, our freedoms, our future, and our children.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by it all. What can one person do in a time of crisis?

But as in all times of trouble, we are being called upon as people of faith. Let us show the world our strength and compassion.

Let’s blanket this nation in prayer.

Please join me and pray for our country and for everyone who is affected by this crisis. We may be in social “isolation,” but we are not alone. There are hundreds of thousands of us, and we will all be praying for the safety, health, and comfort of our neighbors.

With the grace of God, we will come through this crisis. Please know that Deborah and I pray for all of you every day. Please be safe, take care, and have faith.
