COVID-19 – Carey @ Level 2

Kia ora,

We hope you have been able to get into a good rhythm now we’re in Level 2. We know it’s been very challenging for many of you to juggle different study patterns with the demands of home life, ministry and work. We are exceedingly proud of each of you and are here to continue the journey together. God is still in control, the Maker of the Universe who is closer to you than a brother.

Here is what Carey life and study look like at Level 2.

At the beginning of this year we chose Psalm 121 as our theme for our community worship. I love the way this psalm says – no less than six times! – the Lord watches over you.


The One who never slumbers or sleeps, the One who never gets tired or distracted, the One who stands at your side, is constantly watching over you. He sees your path. He knows your challenges. And he will help you. He knew COVID-19 was coming. You can trust him. He’ll get you through.

“The Lord will watch over your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore”


Every blessing,
