Shelter for the Oppressed

Zinc Sheet Distribution

The LORD is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
Psalm 9:9 (NLT)

Recently, ServeNow Nepal gave over 1,500 corrugated zinc roofing sheets to people in need of shelter. The people were very grateful to receive this means of protection from the early monsoon rains.

One eighty-year-old woman, “Riea,” lost all of her family members to the earthquake, including her husband. Her poverty is so great that she is unable to afford sandals and is forced to walk barefoot. When provided with a metal sheet to protect her from the rain, “Riea” was overwhelmed with joy and expressed her gratitude with tears in her eyes.  zinc sheet construction

In the words of our national director of Nepal, “God is using ServeNow to provide hope to the hopeless people, help to the helpless people and encouragement to the discouraged people.”

Please Pray:

  • For “Riea” to find comfort and support from the Lord.
  • In thanksgiving for God’s faithful provision of hope, help, and encouragement to the people who ServeNow has been able to help.
  • For future distributions of food supplies, tarps, and zinc roofing sheets.

Please leave your prayers in the comments below for “Riea” and all who live with devastating loss due to the earthquake.
