Friends of The Father's Business,
We are having to make the difficult choice to close The Father's Business for a season. Part of our decision is motivated by a desire to help combat the spread of COVID-19. At the same time the Gunter family is experiencing some healthcare issues unrelated to COVID-19 that require our attention to be focused on family.
Starting Monday, March 23rd (and moving forward until further notice) our office will be closed.
We will not be able to take or return your phone calls. We will be responding to emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org as quickly as possible.
Any individual orders placed before Tuesday, March 24th will be shipped. All wholesale orders and international orders are suspended immediately.
With the ever-changing situation in the world and in the Gunter family, we plan to take it day by day and will let you know when we feel we are ready to re-open. During this time there are several ways we want to continue to serve the body of Christ.
We will still send the weekly devotional to help encourage the body of Christ and will be posting to Facebook and Instagram as time allows.
Many of Sylvia's books are available as Ebooks from Amazon. You can download the Kindle app to your phone, tablet or desktop computer. Titles available as Ebooks are Prayer Portions, For The Family, Prayer Essentials For Living In His Presence Vol 1 and 2, You Are Blessed In The Names of God, Free To Be You, and Living In The Fullness Of The Trinity.
We will also be processing permission requests that come to us through our website to copy pages of Sylvia Gunter's materials for books you currently own.
We will do all that we can to continue to remind us all of who God is and who we are in Christ.
This has always been God's ministry and we trust that even when we have to make the hard decision to close our store for a season that He will take care of our needs. We appreciate your prayers for Sylvia and Elizabeth as they listen to the Holy Spirit and rely on Him for their next steps. God is in the midst of all of this. It didn't take Him by surprise even though it feels like that to us.
Donations are always deeply appreciated, especially in these uncertain times. If you would like to donate to The Father's Business during this time, click the link below
For out of His fullness [the superabundance of His grace and truth] we have all received grace upon grace [spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing, favor upon favor, and gift heaped upon gift].

We don't know. It could be weeks, it could be longer. We are taking it day-by-day. We have to consider not only our family issue but also the ever changing COVID-19 situation. None of us know what the days ahead will bring. Our heart is to bring back the online store as soon as feel that we can.
