Mike’s (Internet & Zoom) Travels via technology

July 2020

As Covid 19 restrictions still apply to motorcycle rallies, shows, gatherings etc. my work is predominantly via Zoom conference calls, exchanges of emails, texts and the many WhatsApp groups that I am part of.

I particularly enjoy our morning prayer meetings via Zoom hosted by Thames Valley, one of the most important blessings of this lock down period has been the significant increase of prayer and the expectation of God’s miraculous answers.

How true is Oswald Chambers’ statement, “Prayer is the greater work”.

We are never to doubt the power of prayer - but increase the volume of our prayer.

At this morning’s prayer meeting we encouraged each other to believe in specific prayer, even for things that may appear a little mundane; God cares about the detail.

I am really enjoying connecting with numerous branches via Zoom because I see members much more often that way, I hope this can continue after Covid 19.

Each month I am involved with a CMA European Leaders Conference via Zoom. It is a positive opportunity to share ideas to support each other via lock down, addressing difficulties and positive developments.

On the 17th July I attended Albert’s funeral from the South Lancashire Branch, there was a good turn out from CMA and the local community, I’m sure Diane and her family were encouraged. We continue to pray for Diane.

We have informed the Motorcycle Action Group that we will not be hosting a Holy Joes Café at the Farmyard Party Rally in September this year, we are concerned for the safety of CMA members, particularly those who have underlying health issues. We have a duty of care to do all we can to avoid members being infected with the virus and, of course there is the distinct possibility of a second wave in the months ahead.

Sandy and I shall be taking two weeks leave from the 1st-15th August.
