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. 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.
