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”

James 2:15-16  Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
