SIU-CF Solomon Islands, one of the new Christian student movements which affiliated to IFES in July 2019, have been hit hard by recent events. Not by Covid-19 itself, which has not touched their islands, but by preventative lockdown, university closures and very slow, expensive and unreliable internet connectivity. Student ministry is in ‘hibernation’, so please pray that God will grant wisdom to movement leaders as they seek to restart ministry.
