Update from village in Nepal

Here is a report from some Brazilian missionaries we work with in Nepal with their Photos  Supplying Seeds Ministry has been going to Nepal and working with several missionaries over the last 12 years To find out how to help email us at Contacts@supplyingseeds.com Pastor Lucas in NepalMore destruction in NepalPastor Lucas in mountain village

Translation: “Brothers and friends, I have just received news from Nepal. Pastor Lucas went today to one of the villages where we help the pastors to see how they were. The houses are all completely destroyed. The only thing standing is the church we built with the help of our brothers in Brazil and America, and it is serving as a shelter. The building will need to be repaired but the greatest need today is for food, water and medicine. He (Lucas) has been heavily impacted by what he has seen and feels the pain of our brothers. “How can we help some but not others? No we need to help them all!” Lucas said. This is just one of the villages and there are several others. In one of those which he went through the strong terrble smell of the dead bodies was everywhere. Lucas thought that he would set up a big tent to give shelter, food and water and medicine. Brothers Pray for Nepal. Pray for us and let’s all give.”   Sheyla Mortosa Barbosa

“Irmaos e amigos, acabei de receber noticias do Nepal. O Lucas hoje foi em uma das vilas onde apoiamos pastores, foi ver como eles estavam. As casas estao destruidas, somente esta em pe a igreja que construimos com o apoio de irmaos do Brasil e America, a qual esta servindo de abrigo.

As construcoes terao que ser reerguidas, mas a necessidade maior hoje e comida, agua, remedios.

Ele esta bem impactado com tudo que viu, sentindo a dor dos nossos irmaos. “Como vamos ajudar uns e os outros nao? Temos que ajudar todos!” Fala do Lucas.” Sheyla Mortosa Barbosa

Esta e so uma das vilas, tem varias ainda.

Em uma delas que ele passou o mal cheiro estava muito forte, por causa dos corpos das pessoas que morreram.

O Lucas pensou em armar uma grande tenda e suprir os desabrigados com comida, agua e remedio.

Irmaos orem por Nepal, orem por nos, e vamos contribuir.

Wnep Channel 16 at New Covenant Fellowship Church for Nepal fundraiser

Those who have been following my updates from our friends in Nepal will be gratified to know we were able to have the local news station come in last night and report on our fund-raising efforts to send money to Nepal today. At the mission we are working with there are over 300 girls sleeping outdoors and in desperate need of food, water and blankets. The roads are impassable in and out of Kathmandu to heavy truck traffic and rail. The supplies are available through local stores and farmers who can bring in things from the surrounding countryside Nepali style.

Please pray for The Apples of God’s Eyes ministry and the leadership under Pastors Silvio and Rose Silva and the girls and boys in their care.

Here is an excerpt from the Newswatch 16 article

“Every month we send support to them and because of the earthquake they have there now, we have to raise funds to help them,” explained the pastor, Dr. Joliam Sampaio.Meninas after earthquake

Sampaio was in Kathmandu just last month and has visited Nepal 10 times in the last decade for missionary work and other help. Now, he says their support will need to be ramped up.

Money raised from selling tablecloths which were made in Nepal will go right back to helping those affected overseas.

“That’s the only thing that’s going to get in is money,” said Peter Caligiuri, assistant pastor. “We can’t ship supplies. We can’t ship blankets. We can’t ship clothing, not right now.”

There will be a food festival at the New Covenant Fellowship Church in Taylor on May 2 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. where you can buy those tablecloths from Nepal to help earthquake victims”

Nepal Update

As some of my followers may know, in 2011 I traveled to Nepal as a helper on a missions trip with Supplying Seeds Ministry president, Dr Joliam Sampaio. We spent a few days in visiting a  Bhutanese refugee camp in eastern Nepal then another week in Kathmandu at the home of Pastor Silvio and Rosmari Silva. Nepal and India 303 They are the founders of a ministry to young girls who have either been victims human-trafficking or were in home situations that were vulnerable to it. Today they are thankful that none of the more than 300 girls have been killed but they are living in a precarious situation,trying to either sleep in their cars or in a safe school structure and neighboring people by the hundreds are coming to them for food, water and shelter. The news from Nepal is hard for us here in comfortable America to comprehend. No amount of photographs of the devastation can communicate the uncertainty that comes with the continuous aftershocks, and  the difficulty of  communication and travel. All the main roads in and out of Kathmandu are more or less closed due to landslides and fallen bridges  and cracked roads. The ancient city center is in ruins and the government is struggling to find a way to proceed with rescue and relief efforts. The main city hospital is caring for the injured outdoors (including the ICU unit) for fear of the aftershocks bringing down the building.  “What can I do?” you might ask in light of the thousands dead and the tens of  thousands injured. First pray as though it were your own family, your brothers and sisters who are in this situation. When you pray, cry out to God to do what only He can do for Nepal today. Nepal needs a miracle today. You can also be one small part of the miracle with a gift of any size . We will send money by wire beginning on Monday.What ever you can do think of the faces, the smiles and the  hearts of those on the other side of the world who are waiting to hear from us. God bless you. Please contact us for more information on our accounts or way to help us with your donation.

Never Be Afraid!

They say that the bee sees the colors of the flower as if they were the lights on a landing strip. She sees the pattern and lines up her flight path to directly intersect with the center of the bloom where the nectar can be found. In the same way  the promises that God gives us in the Bible are sent to guide us to our heavenly landing. While the world’s way of thinking  is to run from any hint of the end of earthly life, the Word of God places a hand around our shoulder urging us on. As Paul is writing to the Philippian church from his Roman prison cell he stares the possibility SCRANTON-20130710-00048_crop_cropof death squarely in the eye and says:

 For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better. But if I live, I can do more fruitful work for Christ. So I really don’t know which is better. I’m torn between two desires: I long to go and be with Christ, which would be far better for me.  Philippians 1:21-23

As I myself am growing older, I am beginning to see the glow of some of those lights on my own landing strip. Though one side of me stirs with a tendency towards panic and flight, the quiet sense of God’s Spirit within claims His promise of my heavenly home. Though the journey will be fraught with difficulty and will pass through the unknown regions ahead I am encouraged by the thought that.

No Captain fears entering his final port of call

No Engineer trembles as he is  pulling into the train station

No passenger cowers  in his seat after the plane has landed and the seat belt sign goes off

No soldier runs away after the end of the war when he sees his mother and father waiting for him on the porch

No child is ashamed to receive his rightful inheritance –

    Though He suffered on the cross to the point of feeling abandoned, Jesus was never afraid. He chose to trust the Father and commit Himself into His hands. As we look to Him, the eternal , “Brave Heart” we can rest in Him completely and choose to – Never Be Afraid!
