Since the devastating earthquake hit Nepal in April 2015, our partners in South Asia have provided life-saving relief to the Nepali people. We are so grateful to the generous support of many donors, including hundreds of OMS supporters.
Philip and his team immediately reached out to the people deeply affected in a region that other organizations didn’t. They provided food supplies for 7,000 hungry people, they distributed relief kits among 1,400 families who survived the disaster, but lost everything because of it. And they gave medicine and medical supplies to many of those who were injured.
Over this past year, the people in the villages that were helped have expressed their deep gratitude, recognizing that they would not have survived this difficult situation without the assistance from our generous donors. As a result, these villagers experienced true Christian love through this support.
And more good news …
Among the communities served, 22 villages have accepted Christ as their Savior and were recently baptized! Our partners there are now selecting leaders and training them, using the Train & Multiply curriculum for multiplying disciples and churches.
The positive relationships built have set a firm foundation for our ongoing ministry in this area. God is at work in Nepal!
