DAI Nepal MAOL Students Share Experience and Request Prayers
“The Lord is my Shepherd”. Psalms 23:1, Psalms 121:1-8
It’s my pleasure to inform you that we all are safe even though the days were so horrible and scary. I thought we wouldn’t have this opportunity to email, chat, pray and do the ministry together any more again. I thought we couldn’t survive, our children couldn’t survive but by God’s grace mercy we able to survive. Every second was so dangerous and scary. We felt that we were not standing or sitting on the ground but were floating on slough mud, it would break out any time and we are being ready to sink into it. The trees and houses were swinging right and left we were just seeing which trees and houses would fall down first around us.
The children were around me and my wife, holding hands together, crying and weeping with every after shocks. My wife and I also cried and wept together, comforted them together, prayed together and floated and swam together with the earthquake’s waves.
And praise God we survived together even though it was really horrible at moments. Every second was uncertain and didn’t know what would happened the next second but now I felt and knew God had special plans for that every second for me and the children. It was fun.
Open and muddy ground was our beds and old and tore plastic was over us to protect us from the rain but it wasn’t able to protect us completely so we all wet by rain. But still we were surviving by God’s grace and mercy. Even though we lie down on the ground; couldn’t sleep because every aftershock of the Earthquake would bring scary and uncertainty for our lives. But as the dawn comes up, every morning could give a hope to live and survive but every second was really fearful and uncertain. Every second was uncertain but it was very meaningful and valuable for our lives in the world. “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassion never fail. They are new every morning; great is your Faithfulness.” Lamentation 3:22, 23.
I thank you so much for your prayers. I know the life that I do have now is the response of your prayer. I express my heartfelt thank you to you and your family. We and all the children are fine and ok by God’s grace and mercy. Thank you so much for your prayers.
I totally lost my house in the village where my parent has been living. My parent and others are living under the trees these days. Some of our relatives lost their lives under the broke down houses and now people are trying to dig them out. They really need help. There is no food to eat or place to stay. It’s really been hard time for them.
The Churches and the Schools are broke down. Neither there is place for worship nor sending children in the school. So kindly pray for them also kindly pray for our children’s relatives. I am trying to make contact but haven’t been able.
The rest is ok. I will update you more later. Once again, thank you so much for your prayers and concerns for us. I offer my heartfelt thanks to you for your prayers and concerns. Love and greetings from Nepal.
Prayer Request: Kindly pray for our Children Home needs, my house and parent, also children’s villages.
