Body of Christ Connection

Body of Christ ConnectionCybersalt's Body of Christ Connection links up persecuted followers of Jesus to their brothers and sisters living in faith and freedom around the world. Through this connection, both parties are able to experience/express concern and care for each resulting in more fulfilment of God's plan and desire for His children to love and care for each other.

Body of Christ Connection - Tips for the PersecutedThank you for considering being willing to share your life with a brother or sister in Christ living for Jesus in freedom somewhere else in the world. As a part of the church, a member of the body of Christ, you can be used by God to be a blessing to someone who may be far away and living in different circumstances, but at the same time is still one with you because of the Holy Spirit who lives in you both.

As you begin this new connection, we've prepared these tips we think that will be helpful for you - just as we have prepared some tips for your connections here:

  • Many people in Western countries are very suspicious of emails they receive from people asking for help and money. They get many, many of these emails and are told to not respond to them because it is most likely they are scammers.  Once we have been able to confirm your story of persecution is a true one, we will let the person you are paired with know you are not a scammer. Still, it won't be helpful if you ask them for money or help. We know you are in a difficult and desperate situation and we will tell them this too. But, we encourage you to take time to get to know them and establish a friendship with them and wait to see what happens over time as your hearts grow together. Some think that people think all people living in the West are rich.  This is not true. Many are struggling financially. The person you share your story and day to day life with may not be able to help you with money, but by taking part in this we do know they want to help by praying and talking.

  • When you send a message to your contract, try not to just always ask, "How are you?" or only say, "Hello" or "Hi." Because you will probably be many time zones apart, little questions or statements like that make it very hard to have a conversation and can become frustrating. Try to include more content and ideas when you send a message, such as "Hello, It is a beautiful day here. The sun is shining, which is nice because it has been so cold and damp lately and my cough was getting worse. I hope that you are having a good day. I have been praying for your friend who is ill and for you as you try to help them."

  • Don't be discouraged if you don't hear from your connection for a few days. They likely live a number of time zones away from the one you live in and you simply may keep missing connecting with them. Also, just as we have good days and bad days, your connection does too. They may also be busy, under the weather, or perhaps overwhelmed by what is going on in their lives. You can still drop them a note to say you are praying for them.

Body of Christ Connection - Tips for the FreeThank you for considering being willing to share your life with a brother or sister in Christ, living for Jesus in the midst of great persecution or as a refugee who has fled persecution. As a part of the church, a member of the body of Christ, you can be used by God to be a blessing to someone who may be far away and living in different circumstances, but at the same time is still one with you because of the Holy Spirit who lives in you both.

As you begin this new connection, we've prepared these tips we think that will be helpful for you - just as we have prepared some tips for your connections:

  • We have encouraged your connection to not ask for money from you. However, we want you to know that they still may ask out of the shear stress and struggle of the difficult situation they are in. Many refugees have fled to countries where they are not allowed to work and face prison if they do, all the while needing money for rent, food, medicine and an active phone line while they wait to be called for their application interviews. If you are asked for money and you are not moved or able to give that's OK. Simply explain that you are not able to give to them. In such cases be sure to tell them that you still want to know their story and to pray for them. Feeling forgotten and disconnected is a huge, emotional burden for them and you prayers and connection will still help them greatly. If you reach a point where you wish to send financial help to your connection, you may do so through this link.

  • Your connection will not be like the periodic, positive interactions people have with the children they sponsor in child sponsorship programs. Be prepared for more regular interactions and communications which will cover the gambit of inspiring and rejoicing to sorrow and concern. The stories and ongoing suffering of your connection, combined with an inability to help or make improvements for them in most of their major needs, will add a burden to your lives along with the blessings that will come as well.

  • Your connection may not speak English very well. In fact they may speak very little English and may also be relying on online tools such as Google Translate to convert what they type in their own language into English for you. When interacting, this sometimes requires great patience and slowness to judge. For instance, while chatting the simple message, "Are you there, answer me" may come across as very abrupt or demanding when in reality they have simply meant to ask, "Are you still there?" Remember too that sometimes when we think we have communicated very clearly, what we have said might be misunderstood - again especially by someone who is not a native English speaker.

  • Don't be discouraged if you don't hear from your connection for a few days. They likely live a number of time zones away from the one you live in and you simply may keep missing connecting with them. Also, just as we have good days and bad days, your connection does too. They may also be busy, under the weather, or perhaps overwhelmed by what is going on in their lives. You can still drop them a note to say you are praying for them.
