Nepal Earthquake Update

By Dan Pourbaix,

Our Nepal team is safe after the earthquake that hit early this morning in Nepal.  Praise the Lord for protecting them while they are in Nepal helping from the previous earthquake!  They are currently in a remote area outside Kathmandu and are responding to medical needs from this earthquake. 

Here is a quick update from one of our Pastors in Nepal - "The poverty here is astounding.  Then you add the earthquake and old brick and mud buildings, and it really has set back this country 50+ years according to what the Nepali leaders are saying.  It has been a really good thing to be here to encourage the Binay Church pastors… I think they needed it, and we have lots of ideas for how to proceed."

Please continue to pray for them and for our church partners in Nepal as they continue to recover from this earthquake and for opportunities for them to aid and share the hope of the gospel to many who feel devastated after these earthquakes.
