The massive earthquake in Nepal on April 25 has brought untold damage and suffering to the nation of 28.9 million people. The graphic images of destruction are heart-wrenching. Thousands of people perished, and the lives of many more families have been ruined.
Rebuilding the damaged infrastructure and shattered lives will be a long and hard process. While we thank God that AsiaCMS mission partners and their families are safe, we truly feel for the loss and pain of this nation.
These are challenging times indeed. News of religious persecution and communal violence has become commonplace in many parts of the world.
Asia too is not spared this fanaticism. These past months have brought some challenges to the AsiaCMS team in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
