A massive earthquake has just hit western China, where at least 116 people have been confirmed dead and hundreds more injured.
Rescue teams are scrambling to reach survivors in sub-zero temperatures. The earthquake hit Jishishan county in Gansu Province late Monday night, destroying more than 4,700 houses.
“Our partners in Gansu are ok and no one was injured by the earthquake,” Pastor Seth (not his real name) reported today. “We are asking locals how our church can best help.”
BTJ has a school of ministry in the province of Gansu and so far there aren’t any reported injuries to the believers that we are working with.
