What We Can Do for Nepal...

...First, we need to pray.

  • Pray for those whose loved ones have died, that God will comfort them.
  • Pray for those engaged in rescue, that they will be able to get to survivors amid the rubble of the latest earthquake.
  • Pray for the efforts of relief agencies, that God will give them access and success in reaching those impacted by these two earthquakes.
  • Pray for the people of Nepal as they attempt to rebuild their lives and their buildings.
  • Pray that, as Nepalese people receive the compassion and care of those who claim Jesus as Lord, they will be drawn to Jesus, the way and the truth and the life.

Second, we can give to relief efforts.

The North American Lutheran Church (NALC) had already joined hands with five different agencies that are working in Nepal. This past Saturday, as NALC representatives from Ohio met, our worship offering was designated for Nepalese relief.

Here is a link to the NALC page on Nepal. Here are the four agencies to which you might consider donating money:

Lutheran World Relief (USA)
Lutheran World Relief (Canada)
Samaritan's Purse
World Missions International
World Mission Prayer League
