After recent scandals, I have become skeptical of the native missionary movement. I have been supporting native missionaries for decades now, but these scandals have really burnt my trust. Thank you for addressing trust and accountability in Prayerline letter.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you, for such wonderful weekly articles. I look forward to each one, as it helps me to view beyond my own thoughts/circumstances enabling transformed and focused prayers outwardly to what God is doing around the world. It helps me to think outside of my little, local box, to see as God sees that there is more at stake than my problems. These articles and this ministry are a simple grace that is calling us to pray together as one body in Jesus Christ. Again thank you!

Nepal’s Christian Workers Go Where Few Are Able to Reach Earthquake Victims

April 27, 2015

A Nepalese ministry leader was guest-speaking at a church in Nepal’s capital when the room began to rock.

“All of a sudden it hit us, and I was on something like a roller coaster,” Gopal jee said. “The two pastors were just swaying from one side to the other, and we prayed that everything would be OK at the end of the day.”

The 7.8 earthquake on Saturday (April 25) ended the worship service for about 70 people. They all survived, but at least 4,000 others lost their lives, and more than 7,000 people are injured. The ministry leader and thousands of others are living in tents out of fear of more aftershocks, even as he and his team dispatch teams to help those who have lost everything.

Fallen boulders the size of cars have made some roads impassable, but because the indigenous ministry teams are familiar with the landscape, they know how to walk to affected villages to provide aid. The needs are overwhelming, however, and they need additional funds for food, water, tents and medicines.

The indigenous missionaries are working through extensive church contacts to provide aid in the name of Christ. They have the access to provide local aid but lack funds to purchase them; your gift can make the difference.
