The people of Nepal are suffering greatly in this season, with one disaster piled on top of another. COVID-19 cases are rising rapidly, with many deaths. Because of this, the government has imposed total lockdowns in the major cities, creating severe hardship for families who survive on daily wages. On top of this, the monsoon rains have brought flooding and landslides to the mountainous village areas.
Thanks to donations to the COVID-19 International Relief Fund, World Missions has been able to send funds to assist our pastors in this crisis. Pastors, in turn, are using these funds to provide help for their local communities. We have received reports that these acts of generosity have opened doors to sharing the gospel, and opened hearts to receive the good news. Outsiders who have been taught to view Christians with suspicion are now seeing the love of Christ in action. Many new believers are being baptized as a direct result of this relief ministry.
