from our GRN Nepal director:
A couple of days ago we were able to take rice, noodles, blankets and tarpaulins to a village of 200 people who had received no aid. In their village every house had been destroyed. They were very thankful. We are going to those villages where no-one else has gone. Sometimes we are able to bring medical help as well.
We also took water and food to the Nepali army who were rescuing people trapped under the rubble. They too were very grateful. They had been working since 4 am and had not had anything to eat or drink.
Everyone is very grateful to GRN for the help that is being provided. Thank you for your prayers and your gifts. Earth tremors are still occurring so please don't stop praying.
Some of the walls of my own house are on the verge of collapsing and need to be pulled down to see if the pillars are OK. It is dangerous work.
In one village we visited everyone was outside in tents because their homes were almost completely destroyed. We are hoping to build 25 temporary toilets there because hygiene is as important as food, to prevent disease spreading. People also need basic essentials such as soap, towels, tooth brushes and tooth paste.
Your donations will provide financial assistance to GRN Nepal so they can share food and basic essentials with Nepalese communities and individuals in need of help.
- Praise God for the ministry of GRN staff amongst those that are hurting. Pray that they may be shining lights to all as they provide food, essential supplies and medical help to remote villages.
- Pray that God will comfort the staff as they themselves have suffered the loss of homes and the death of friends and loved ones.
- Pray that the aftershocks will abate and that the aid workers will be sustained in their efforts.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
