Please pray for those affected by the earthquake in Nepal

Please join us in praying for the people of Nepal and all those affected by the earthquake that hit on Saturday 21 April. Please particularly pray for SU Nepal as it has obviously had a devastating effect. Here's the latest news from SU International Director, Janet Morgan...

SU Nepal - the recent earthquake has been devastating. Many parts of Kathmandu have been without electricity and water, roads are blocked and flights delayed. People are sleeping outside, including at the hotel where the South Asia Region meeting was due to begin on Wednesday which will now be postponed.

Praise God that all the staff; Dhruba, Arjun and Sabitha and their families are safe. Dhruba's house was not damaged so they are able to stay there. We were able to contact Nishad Lama (SU Nepal Chairperson) early on and establish she was OK although her house has suffered some damage. With the significant aftershocks being experienced she is very much afraid to go back into the house and has not been able to ascertain the extent of damage. Nishad has been staying and sleeping outdoors due to the damage to her house. She was in a tent until late Sunday when she, with others, was offered a van to stay in until the aftershocks subside. In her words… 'We are so much afraid now'.

Please continue to pray for Dhruba, Nishad, Arjun and Sabitha and their families. There is much disappointment that their anniversary celebration has to be postponed and much fear and uncertainty throughout the city. A fundraising campaign to buy a building for Nepal was already underway and we will continue our efforts and adjust plans in light of the recent developments.
