CHILDREN HELPING CHILDREN

(Part 6)

“I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the

least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.”

(Matthew 25:40)

Dear Ministry Partner,

   Almost every day since April 25th when the first major 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, we have been doing emergency relief. Because of our strategic national partners there, we were able to engage immediately. Fortunately, we did not have to wait to get started until we could go there personally or deploy other people from America.

NEPALIS HELPING NEPALIS

THROUGH YOUR PARTNERSHIP

(Part 5)

“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)

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.

NEPAL EARTHQUAKE RELIEF

(Part 3)

“The believers in Antioch (America) decided to send relief
to the brothers and sisters in Judea
(Nepal),
everyone giving as much as they could.
This they did, entrusting their gifts to Barnabas and Saul
 
(Pastor Hanok Tamang and Pastor Yacob Tshering)
to take to the elders of the church
 in Jerusalem (Kathmandu and beyond)
.”
(Acts 11:29-30; Living Bible)

Earthquake Statistics To Date:

  • 8 million people directly impacted
  • 7,200 + confirmed dead
  • 14,000 + injured
  • 200,000 + homes destroyed
  • 175,000 + homes damaged
  • 2,000 + Christian families homeless

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.

NEPAL EARTHQUAKE UPDATE

“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.
