Nepal/India Earthquake Relief

by Jason Bollinger on April 30th, 2015

​By now you have probably heard reports about the recent Earthquake in Nepal and aftershocks into India that have devastated many. Thousands have been killed, thousands more injured, thousands more displaced and suffering life-altering affects. 

At times like this our Kingdom nature kicks in and urges us to engage in helping those in urgent need, and this is good. As always, there are various ways to to help.

Prayer is always the best place to start. Pray for those affected, pray for relief efforts and for organizations and churches to have the necessary resources to be vessels of Good News. Prayers are necessary, and it's something we can all do.

Giving money is the next thing we can do. At Links, everything we do is relational, and we want to invest in a place where we know the money will get to the ground and do the most good. Because of longstanding relationship, we have decided to partner with Body of Christ Ministries to provide relief to earthquake victims. The picture above is from Bihar in India where many are suffering from aftershocks. While much resource is being raised for Nepal (which is great), our efforts will be focused a little further south. 

Body of Christ has been serving the people of India (and beyond) for two generations, and their reach is vast. They have over 80 different churches in the region, and they have access to areas intensely affected by the earthquake. The relief efforts of Body of Christ will not only address the current, urgent needs but also ongoing needs that will need to be addressed long after the media coverage stops. 

Money given through Links will initially be used to deliver basic relief: blankets, food, medical and cooking supplies to the most desperate in their villages and regions. 

Thank you for your consideration of providing assistance for those in need in earthquake affected areas. Your generosity will go a long way and will be a beautiful testimony to the Good News of Jesus.
