Latest update from Nepal:
Bro. Jonathan & Sis. Jocelyn Wallace (ACBM) have been in contact with the ecclesia and report as follows:
30/4/2015 – I have been on the phone to Brother Tarjan. Sister Nanu has
gone into labour with her and brother Raju's first child they are
trying to get her into the hospital, it is very hard as you can imagine
at present as the hospitals are all overloaded.
have left to travel for Sitali by motorbike. It's believed the village
has been wiped out. Many of our brothers and sister have lost their
homes. On Tuesday I found out that brother Nar was missing with his two
children, but they are now accounted for and are safe.
1/5/2015 AM – I have spoken with the brothers and sister again. They are
trying to help as many as possible and have spent a fair bit of money
on essentials - food, water, & clothes etc. Some of the brothers
have visited ecclesias in some remote areas taking food money and
clothes. They also held a breaking of bread with brothers and sisters.
Today they received the A$4,000 that was sent earlier in the week.
1/5/2015 PM – The brothers traveling to Sitali have reached there and
report that the houses have extensive damage but the brothers and
sisters are ok. They are helping the village having taken as much
supplies as they can carry. They have also had a breaking of bread. The
houses of many Kathmandu brothers & sisters have cracks as has the
Hall at Chabahil. Sister Nanu is now in hospital in labour. Brother Raju
and his mother and some of the sisters are there. Sister Kalawati said
they have been helping as many as possible with food blankets and
whatever they have. They have been using their own money for this.
