Nepal has been devastated by two terrible earthquakes, which struck on 25 April and 12 May. An estimated 8 million people were effected, with 8,000 killed. Pray for all who have suffered in this disaster. The first quake struck on a Saturday, when many Christians had gathered for worship (as Saturday is only non-working day in Nepal). Whole congregations were killed as church buildings collapsed on top of them. At least 100 church buildings were damaged or destroyed. The small but growing Church in Nepal is marginalised and often discriminated against by Hindu majority. Some Christians were deliberately overlooked in the distribution of government aid, but Barnabas stepped in to assist with emergency relief. Pray for wisdom for our Nepalese Christian partner organisations as they plan how best to provide shelter for Christian families, especially now in the middle of the monsoon season, and how to assist in the long-term restoration of lives and livelihoods.
