“There has been a big earthquake. We need help immediately,” read the text from the Back to Jerusalem missionaries living in Nepal.
Nepal was smashed on Friday night by a 5.6 earthquake that toppled buildings, destroyed homes, and killed at least 157 people. The earthquake could be felt as far away as India’s capital, New Delhi.
“We are focused on providing urgently needed materials right now,” the missionary wrote in a message from Nepal. The missionary, who cannot be named for security reasons, is leading a team of other missionaries who have been serving in Nepal since the last major earthquake of April 2015, which killed 8,964 people and injured 21,952 more.
