Pray for Navigators in Nepal

God has graciously spared all Navigators from serious injuries or fatalities after the major earthquake hit Nepal on April 25. However, recent reports from Navigator leaders in the country say that our staff and those they minister to are living outdoors, sometimes in fields, for fear of additional aftershocks. The situation remains critical and difficult for thousands of people. Cold and rainy weather, along with blackouts, poor water supply, and lack of food and medications will continue to complicate life for the people of Nepal.  

Our regional director for Asia-Pacific reports that some team members and those they serve experienced miraculous protection during the earthquake. However, the homes of two families were destroyed and others incurred damage. It will take an additional two weeks or more to ascertain the full extent of the damages, he said.

In a recent statement, our regional leaders ask for ongoing, daily prayer. Ask that God would empower believers in Nepal to “be channels of God's love, comfort, joy, and hope to their communities, especially among the lost. May the name of our Lord Jesus be known, honored, and glorified among the peoples of Nepal through this crisis.”

The International Executive Team has set up a fund to provide immediate assistance for our team in Nepal. The name of the fund is the “Nepal Assistance Fund.” If you are interested in making a contribution to this ministry fund, there are two ways to do this:

1. If you live outside the U.S or Canada, please make donations through your regional office. The fund’s NavID number is 24000876.

2. If you live within the U.S. or Canada, you can make an online donation at this link:

As we do not provide disaster relief work, these contributions will only be used to provide immediate, basic assistance for our teams, and to enable them to respond to this crisis in ways that advance the Gospel.

Ongoing updates will be provided as often as possible on this blog. If you have any questions, please contact Glenn at glenn.ilc.communications@gmail.com.
