Hope Dawns As The Floods Subside

‘We are here to offer this support from the church to everyone, regardless of creed.’ The community workers had come with vital supplies of rice to help those affected by the terrible floods in Nepal. Many people were experiencing hardship, without food or clothes. The local community’s misconceptions about the church were broken down by this act of compassion. Sometimes it is difficult to understand how God is at work in the context of natural disasters but two local families were so touched by the church’s care that they decided to follow Jesus Christ. God’s love had broken down the barriers of mistrust.

It was a delight to hear this story first hand as we welcomed Ram Prasad Shrestha (pictured) in our offices today. Ram is Executive Director of Faith2Share member National Mission Commission of Nepal (NMCN). NMCN played a similar, vital role in assisting the victims of the 2015 earthquake, demonstrating God’s love through practical support.
