“They were a delightful, happy family who lost everything in the earthquake,” the couple said, “and now [they] live in a one-room little tin shed attached to another small tin shed used as the church. They have no toilet, bathroom or kitchen . . .”
Not long after the two major earthquakes, GFA-supported Compassion Services teams came alongside this pastor and other pastors in the area, helping them bring relief to the 748 families living there. Since then, GFA-supported workers have continued to help those who have lost their homes.
In a different village, the couple also met Pastor Pranish and his family whose home and church were both destroyed in the quakes. The pastor and his wife suffer from different illnesses as a result, yet they have not slowed down the reconstruction. In fact, this couple celebrated Easter Sunday in the congregation’s partially constructed church!
