Do you know someone who has perished from Covid-19? If so, our heart goes out to you. Together, as the entire family of Brigada participants, let’s all pray for those around the world who have suffered, along with those who are suffering right now. Let’s give thanks to God for forward progress, while lifting up the families of those who have perished. (According to a recent Wall Street Journal analysis of the data at Johns Hopkins CSSE, already in 2021, more people have died of COVID19 than died in all of 2020. See the Wall Street Journal article at, though you the story might be behind a pay wall. See the data at Johns Hopkins Thanks to Justin Long for alerting us to the Wall Street Journal article. We appreciate you Justin!)
