[h3]Impact Church is going to Nepal![/h3]
The nation of Nepal (a small nation sandwiched between India and China, and home to Mt. Everest) was devastated by a major earthquake last year (followed shortly thereafter by a second major aftershock earthquake). Thousands of people were killed and hundreds of thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed. The recovery has been slow, and Nepal will need to continue to rebuild for many more years to get back to where it was prior to the earthquakes.
Impact Church is partnering with Baptist Global Response (BGR) to send a team for two weeks to Nepal at the end of March. BGR is partnering with multiple churches in Virginia to send 10 teams in 2015 and 2016. Our team will be helping to build long-term temporary structures for people whose homes have been destroyed, and helping to teach English in the local schools.
We can use your help! First, we ask for your support through prayers and encouragement before, during and after the trip in March. We also need financial support. Our team has roughly $3,000 to raise between now and mid-March. If you are interested or feel led to do so, we would greatly appreciate your help!
