I know as life moves on that tragedy can be forgotten when we aren’t the ones personally touched by it. I so appreciate Pastor Haron keeping us up to date and reminded. Because really, we are personally touched by it.
These are our kinsfolk.
Kinsfolk: a group of people related by blood.
…and we are related by Christ’s blood.
They are hurting and they need their kingdom family to know, to pray, to care.
I bring you warm Greetings from the people who survived the recent Earthquake in Nepal.
Nepal was struck by another significant earthquake, causing even more fear and injuries to a nation whose people are reeling from deep trauma.
As we prayed and asked the Lord to comfort the thousands of people affected, we remember the following passage from Lamentations, where we are reminded to cling to hope.
‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I will hope in him.’(Lamentations 3:24)
The most recent quakes and tremors have caused buildings that were damaged from the first quake to fall to the ground, creating even more instability, and increased fear.
Every day earthquakes are taking place. Families are sleeping in open fields because they have lost their homes or are fearful the existing walls will fall in on them at any moment.
The most recent earthquake has not only affected Nepal, but has also caused destruction in other areas where RHM operates, including North East India (Sikkim).
See your Love and Sacrificial support reaching the least of these.
Your financial support and prayers are allowing our indigenous leaders and myself to serve and care for people who are in desperate need in the remote villages where others have not gone before.
They are sharing Christ’s love in a tangible way and bringing hope and Light into a very dark place.
They are giving Hope to the Hopeless Children of Nepal. They lost their school, uniform, book etc, and are sad for their future because they cannot go to school.
Earlier this week, previous to the most recent earthquake, a Reach Himalaya Ministry team was able to reach an extremely remote village that is devastated. Kunchok Village is very remote, Mr Dhan, one of the senior heads of the village and the only Christian, said: “During this terrible situation, you Christian people came to us first in our place. Before nobody wants to come because we are Dalit’s and untouchables and we have nothing. Our children went to bed with empty stomach, no food, no shelter nothing. You have shown lots of love and helped us more than we ever thought possible. We are thankful to you for the great help. You have not only provided us the relief material, but have also brought love, encouragement and blessing for us; we have never seen anything like your prayers and encouragement. Thank you. Please don’t leave us and forget us, we need your help so that we can get our village back normal and we want the new church planted to grow and become big.”
We thank God for how He is moving and working in the midst of this tragedy. Thank you for your continued support.
