Nepal Earthquake Disaster Appeal

posted 2 May 2015, 05:05 by KBC Webservant   [ updated 2 May 2015, 05:05 by KBC Web Admin ]

By now you will have seen or heard of the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal over the weekend. With 21 mission workers currently serving in Nepal (all of whom are safe and well), BMS will naturally be responding. We know that you are praying.

The scale of the disaster is huge, and its effects are, as ever in such situations, far worse for the poor among whom our workers and partners serve. That is why we are asking churches to pray and to give to support our work on the ground in Nepal.

Your giving ‒ above and beyond the normal planned giving to BMS ‒ can make all the difference at this critical time.

All donations will be used wisely as part of a co-ordinated response of international Christian organisations and our long-term partners in Nepal.

Individuals can donate online by visiting our Nepal earthquakeappeal page  and we are asking churches that are taking up a special offering to donate using our disaster envelopes.

The people of Nepal desperately need your help. Please join with us in immediate relief efforts and long-term disaster recovery by supporting this appeal.

Thank you. David Kerrigan, General Director, BMS World Mission

Pray for all those affected by the earthquake, that they would receive quick and effective help and that those who mourn would be comforted.

Pray for our partners and mission personnel at this time as they seek to respond practically, compassionately and appropriately.

Pray for those responding to the destruction, that they would have wisdom, energy and resilience.

Pray that all those affected would know the love of Christ and would be encouraged by the present and compassionate response of the local Church.
