Nepal Earthquake Relief

Family Voluntary Services of Nepal, a wonderful team of missionaries we have worked with and sponsored for over 10 years, has been in the midst of a lot of heart break and loss since the 7.8 magnitude quake rocked the impoverished Himanlayan nation on April 25th, 2015.

We have had very little word from the volunteer missionary team we work with in Nepal as internet and phone has been very hard to come by. We do know that they and the girl’s school they minister to are safe and they are doing their best to provide comfort and what assistance they can.
