Nimzawi’s New School

Heaven's Family has been busy this summer helping victims of natural disasters in little corners of the world where no news reporters have ventured—and no government or other aid has reached. Several months ago record monsoon flooding caused widespread destruction in Chin State, Myanmar. Homes were lost, including the school where the three children of Za Tial attended.

Rockin’ the House Down

BOOM! Deepa's home shook violently, then went quiet. She cautiously peered into the next room of her small, cement-block home to see the cause: A huge boulder had tumbled down the rain-soaked slope behind her house and was now sitting inside her home—right where her 4-year-old daughter had been just moments earlier. It wasn't the last rock to batter their home that day.

110 Thank Yous

It was an emotional, humbling moment. Never before in my 6-plus years as the director of Heaven's Family's Disaster Relief Ministry had I seen such an outpouring of gratitude. My wife, Karin and I were visiting St. Joseph's Christian School last November to check on those we had helped following the terrible earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015. The school is strategically located in a predominantly Hindu village just outside the capital city of Kathmandu, and has been faithfully shining the light of Christ to its students and their families for many years. The school is known to be Christian, but many Hindu families send their children there because of the school's reputation for excellence.

Wrapped in Love

Our jeep alternately groaned and whined as it transported me and my Nepali partners up, up, up into the misty Himalayan foothills northeast of Kathmandu, winding through lush forests and an occasional village. Many of the homes and other buildings we passed looked as they did right after the earthquake—the owners still waiting for the government to help tear down the fragile, half-collapsed remains.

Compassionate Connections

I've been on the ground here in Nepal for over a week now, and would like to report to you some of the ways you've helped earthquake victims. Getting around Nepal has been difficult, as a new, man-made crisis has its grip on the landlocked nation a little smaller than the state of California.

Not Forgetting Nepal

Between the havoc created by earthquakes in Nepal last spring and the terrible flooding over the summer in Myanmar, these past 6 months have kept me very busy. Together, you and I have been able to impact many lives, reminding them that, through it all, God still cares for them. Many hearts have been softened as well, and I'm encouraged to know many have been drawn closer to Jesus as a result of our efforts.

“Like a Bomb Explosion”

"Like a bomb explosion..." That's the noise that woke Daw Thien Nu, pregnant with her third child, in the middle of the night on August 25th. They had moments to reach safety—somewhere out there in the darkness.
