“Our great God and Savior Jesus Christ …
gave Himself for us to redeem us …
a people for His own possession who are zealous for good works.”

(Titus 2:14; ESV)

Our Nepal Earthquake Relief Team and "boots on the ground" distribute
much needed relief supplies to a poor member of the Chepang Tribe.


Dear Ministry Partner,

   Through our partnership with Pastor Hanok Tamang, we have just finished our 7th major Relief Deployment to people living in remote villages. In addition, you have helped us sponsor deployments through Yacob Tshering – primarily to the Tibetan Diaspora living in Nepal - and through Sister Laxmi Tamang, head of the Himali Children’s Home that we support. We look forward to featuring Sister Laxmi in our next report.

“The believers in Antioch (America) decided to send relief
to the brothers and sisters in Judea

 in Jerusalem (Kathmandu and beyond)

Christians lost everything.

Dear Ministry Partners,

   It has been over a week now since the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake hit Nepal a little before noon on Saturday, April 25th. Since then we have been in daily contact with our longtime partners there: Pastors Hanok Tamang, Yacob Tshering, Gyan Sunuwar and Sangge Sherpa. Fortunately, they are all alive and safe – but each of them experienced damage to their homes and churches.

“As we have the opportunity, let us do good to all people,

especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”

(Galatians 6:10)


Dear Ministry Partners,

   Thank you for your prayers for the people of Nepal who have been devastated by a 7.8-magnitude earthquake – with over 165 aftershocks that have continued to rock the country. The Kathmandu Valley has become “Death Valley” for thousands of people. To date the government says that around 5,000 people were killed and over 9,200 injured. However, because of the remote villages that were also impacted, the full details of the death and destruction will take more time to confirm. But initial reports say that some 8 million Nepalis were affected, with 1 million children in need.

“Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom,

and in various places there will be famines and EARTHQUAKES.

But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.”

(Matthew 24:7-8)


Dear Ministry Partners,

   This morning all of us awakened to the tragic news of yet more “signs of the times” that Jesus told us would increasingly mark these “last days” of human history. Most recently we have focused on the political signs of “... nation against nation and kingdom against kingdom” through the ISIS crisis in the Middle East. This international crisis created by Islamic terrorism will continue for years to come. So we will not stop our efforts there.
