Kathmandu Earthquake Update 4

The Day After

All of us ladies and the kids stayed at "base camp shelter". The men went out in search of friends nearby and to check on people around.

We made a cooking place so we wouldn't have to cook over the fire any more. We brought over a gas tank and our friend brought his stove top.


Two people died when this wall fell. There were 2 men on motorcycles driving past when the quake hit. Luke tried to help but it was too late.

This is in a part of town that was hit really hard. That is a taxi under a building. The men were here to try to help.
This is the same building from another angle.

In this area there was a lady that was just rescued from her house. She was the only survivor. Luke and the others were able to pray with her.

This lady is the owner of the place we stayed at for 3 days. She is really sweet. Her name is Nabina. Pray for her and her family to be saved and we can share with them the "good news."

If you remember once a month we have a Kid's Camp which is kind of like a Vacation Bible School. We have had up to 140 kids there before. One of the schools that comes is the Tashi School. These kids are super sweet and well-behaved. Luke was able to go their with our friends and bring them some rice and tarps. Here are a few pics.

If you would like to contribute to help by more tarps, rice, and supplies please send a check to
