Update On Crisis Response In Nepal

Thursday, 18 June 2015 12:33

One of the richest beauties afforded believers is joining with complete strangers before the throne of God and finding we are family. A second is watching God redeem a horrific tragedy by somehow squeezing goodness out of it. The Nepal earthquake response has delivered on both. It is a beauty to savor, and savor we shall, worshiping both now and forever before the throne of “Him Who works all things after the counsel of His will.” (Ephesians 1:11)

Through the continued generosity of our friends and supporters, Encompass exceeded the goal of providing 300 transitional homes for Nepali families late last week! Additional gifts will assist in building a community center to help shelter those waiting for their homes to be built. Constructed in much the same way as the transitional homes, this structure will then be used for other community activities, and will ultimately be gifted to those engaged in ongoing community outreach.
