Earthquakes in Nepal

Ananda translating

The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Nepal and recommends that they defer nonessential travel there following the 7.8 magnitude earthquake on April 25. I and my son have tickets to go there on May 13, I have yet to hear if they are still having the two-week class I am scheduled to teach. If the class is, as I suspect, cancelled, I am wondering if we should still go.

I could collect and disperse funds to key Christian leaders that I trust, Perhaps we could also be used for counseling and evangelism, There are many factors involved and I could use your prayers and counsel. The picture is of me and Ananda Tamang ministering in Jiri, Nepal. His home and Bible School have been destroyed, His family is living outside without provisions. His parents are doing the same and have no food. People like this need our prayers!

Update: My son Luke and I did get to take this trip and, although it was challenging, it was successful and fruitful!
