a 7.8 magnitude earthquake strikes nepal april 25, 2015.
Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa
In light of the devastating earthquake in Nepal yesterday, I am getting emails from many of you asking about our Calvary Chapel missionaries and bible college students in Kathmandu. All of our staff and students are safe, but they are very shaken by this disaster. Some of our students had homes that collapsed in their villages, and a few have been unable to locate family members. Please keep them in your prayers. The Calvary Chapel facility was not damaged.
Our missionaries on the ground are currently sleeping in an open field to be safe from any aftershocks. We have been able to encourage them and pray with them, and as soon as they can clearly assess the situation, they will see how the Lord will direct them to start ministering to the hurting. We are anticipating that our facility can be a source of relief- both physically and spiritually. We hope to be able to send a relief team as soon as possible.
We have opened a relief fund through Promise Child, and guarantee that 100% of all donated funds will be used for earthquake relief. Please spread the word to those who are looking for a trusted place to give. The fund can be accessed at promisechild.org. (See link below)
I am in Israel right now, so I am in a different time zone, but I will be working on the logistics from here. Please contact me with any questions.
Until the last one hears,
