Earthquake in Kathmandu
At about noon on Saturday, April 25th 2015 Mike, Jerry and Carl from ITWM were on mission and teaching at a local church in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal and home to over 1 million residents, a strong earthquake hit the city and rocked the Bethlehem Kathmandu Church where we were guest preachers. The pastor had just closed the service with the benediction. The church was packed with about 200 people when the floor began to move and the building started to shake. Everyone frantically rushed through the only door of the church, screaming and yelling. The main concern was that the brick wall would not collapse on top of the people. Fortunately it didn’t and everyone was able to get out of the building safely. The pastor then called for everyone to remain calm and begin to pray. Soon a peace settled among the church members. The Igniter team along with our Local igniters in the area were able to help in the process of restoration and giving hope to the people of Kathmandu, many who have lost homes and loved ones. Please continue to join us in supporting and praying for these people.
