The Board of MATE is thinking of and praying for our MATE community, our partners in mission, our friends, and the people of our nation and world in these tenuous times.With the still uncertain impact of COVID-19 looming, the MATE Board continues planning for our upcoming season at MATE. At the same time, know we are keeping abreast of all the latest information about the coronavirus, about work from home orders, social distancing and the things that help and make for health, including program cancellations, and postponements of upcoming events for other outreach programs in our local communities. We are also rapidly learning how other non-profit organizations are planning to adapt and be flexible as our nation moves forward towards recovery. The time frame for restrictions lifting is still far from certain and things change daily based on information coming from the government. This makes it hard to make definite plans for our summer housing ministry and youth MYC programming and camp-CATE. Right now, we are planning on having our regular summer sessions. Please plan on coming to volunteer at the housing ministry or sign up for camp. We do commit to keeping you posted on any decisions and plans that are made, so keep checking MATE’s website www.missionattheeastward.org or sign up to receive our monthly email newsletter MATE MATTERS by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want you to know all applications/registration fees will be refundable if we cannot work on houses or hold camp or our MYC youth group events. We are very hopeful we will see you up at MATE, MYC, and CATE this summer! May God be with you until we see you again and have a healthy, blessed and Happy Easter everyone!
