Jimmy Swaggart Ministries Statement Regarding Resurrection Campmeeting
We have been watching the evolving situation as it regards the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the impact it is having on events in the United States and specifically in Louisiana. We are starting to see most of our major events in Louisiana cancelled as the confirmed number of cases in our state rises. Many of you have heard us discuss this on our programs over the last few days, we do feel the media reports regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) have been exaggerated and have caused long –term harm to the world’s economy, this Nation’s economy, and the individual lives of millions of people globally. Having said this, as we learn more about the facts of this virus, we also realize there can be a potential concern for the health and safety of you - our supporters. With the additional travel restrictions imposed March 11, 2020 regarding Europe, with the fluctuating federal and state policies, and the increased concern of our attendees regarding travel in general, we have had to make the extremely difficult decision to postpone Resurrection Campmeeting and combine it with the Crossfire International Youth Conference July 22-26, 2020. We are making you aware of this change now in order to give you as much time as possible to change your travel arrangements, etc.
We want you to intercede with us and ask the Lord to intervene in this situation. Please continue to pray for the health and wellbeing of the folks all over. We also want to ask for the Lord’s wisdom and guidance for our President and world leaders having to make very difficult decisions.
