Our love and prayers go out to the people of Nepal. There are forty-one Church of God congregations in Nepal, the majority of them in the southeast. Ten or so are in the area where the earthquake hit. So far, the Global Missions regional coordinators for Asia and the Pacific have not yet been able to establish communication with leaders in the area.

We ask the Church of God to make this a matter of prayer today. Thank you!
