Below is an update from Sharmila, our DAI Nepal Coordinator. It is because of the generosity of prayers and financial gifts that this group of Emerging Leaders is able to minister to this remote village. Thank you! Please continue to pray. If you are able, please consider another gift as the need is great. www.daintl.org/help-nepal
May-24, 2015 Sunday
Early in the morning, in a team of 8, we began our journey towards a village in Nuwakot named Inarpati, which is one of the villages affected by the earthquakes. Since the place is located in a valley, it seems to have been overlooked by other relief groups. We came to know about the place from a brother, Ram Hari, who is also a youth leader of the local Church there in Inarpati VDC.
In brief, brother Prem Tamang presented why we were there and then sister Muna Bhandari addressed a little about the normal physical and psychological effect that happen to everyone after earthquake. We distributed blankets, mosquito nets, soaps, cooking oil and Jiwan jal to the 38 families there and other stationary items, chocolates and biscuits for the 100 children present there. It’s always a blessing to be able to help those who are in need. We, Emerging Leaders Group, are so grateful to DAI (Development Associates International) for providing us funding and various other support to reach such overlooked villages in need. We need more prayers to reach other communities and people who are in similar adverse situations.
It’s always better to light a candle then to criticize about the darkness. Our very small effort can help them face the darkest night and make them able to see a new morning. Rise up Emerging Leaders, it’s time to shine even if it as a candle. Let’s not stop burning for them who are in complete darkness today.
