FROM THE EPICENTRE OF THE PANDEMIC

Melissa Pressley lives in the epicentre of the COVID-19 pandemic in Brooklyn, NY. She hears the hopelessness, the fear and the great loss of people who have passed away. One of the ministers in her own church died from the virus. Melissa had previously lost everything she had when she found Crossroads’ Prayer Line number. The ministry she received over the phone was lifegiving for her, so much so that she wanted to give back. She has volunteered as a Crossroads Prayer Partner now for four years and is serving on the frontlines of personal ministry. Melissa answered the call from a woman who had become ill and whose husband was in the hospital because of the virus. They prayed together believing that God is greater than the coronavirus.
