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 Earthquake Survivors Wondering When Relief Will Come

May 08, 2015

Native Christian ministries in Nepal are rushing to fill the gap as promised aid from outside sources fails to reach those most devastated by the recent earthquake.

The United Nations today lamented receiving only $22 million of the $415 million it sought for earthquake aid in Nepal, while indigenous Christian ministries are distributing critical relief items to people who say they feel abandoned.

“Relief has been taken to Gongabu, Balaju, Bhaktapur, Kapan and Sundhara, but most of people who live in the open air said that they haven't got any tents, food, water and medical assistance,” said the director of a Nepalese ministry assisted by Christian Aid Mission, adding that there is no sign of any outside relief organization and that people are angry. “There is a great need of tents, food, water and medicines. Some people are sick and afraid of flu and other epidemic.”

Ministries are racing to provide shelter for 2 million people left homeless by the 7.8 earthquake on April 25 before the monsoon season arrives within the next month. Many of the affected villages are accessible only by foot.

“In Dharmasthali, 13 people lost their lives and about 200 houses – 98 percent of the total – were damaged, and people are staying outside with tents,” the director said. “People lost their family members and are traumatized. They need tents, water, medicines and food.”

Your gift will make the difference for victims in their hour of need.
