Two earthquakes hit Nepal on Tuesday, sending tremors through the northern region of India.
According to the local government, several houses have been damaged in Bajhang district, but no immediate reports of any casualties. BTJ teams from China working in the capital city of Katmandu have not reported any damage to their training facilities or injuries on their team.
BTJ missionaries working in Nepal first started during deadly earthquakes that smashed the capital and surrounding city almost a decade ago. After the initial humanitarian relief efforts where Chinese missionaries handed out supplies and aid kits, the Chinese missionaries stayed in the nation and continued to serve.
Today, three BTJ families are serving in Nepal and have started Christian Nepalese fellowships in the villages.
