Support relief efforts in Nepal

The Gen­er­al Board of Glob­al Min­istries of The Unit­ed Methodist Church, through its dis­as­ter-relief arm and in con­junc­tion with local and inter­na­tion­al part­ners and Nepal-based Glob­al Min­istries mis­sion­ar­ies, is respond­ing to the earth­quake that rocked Nepal on April 25. The Unit­ed Methodist Com­mit­tee on Relief (UMCOR), Glob­al Min­istries’ relief and devel­op­ment unit, approved a grant of $90,000 for inter­na­tion­al part­ner Glob­alMedic to bring clean water to sur­vivors through pro­vi­sion of house­hold and pub­lic water-fil­tra­tion units.

• Pray for all who have been impact­ed by this emer­gency: for the peo­ple of Nepal, for Glob­al Min­istries and UMCOR part­ners at work on the ground there, and for Glob­al Min­istries’ five mis­sion­ar­ies and their fam­i­lies assigned to serve there.

• Give to UMCOR Inter­na­tion­al Dis­as­ter Response, Advance #982450. Your gifts to UMCOR Inter­na­tion­al Dis­as­ter Response make it pos­si­ble for UMCOR to respond quick­ly to emer­gency sit­u­a­tions through our local and inter­na­tion­al part­ners.

• Mark your extra gift to the Liv­er­pool First Unit­ed Methodist5 Church, not­ing on your check “Nepal Relief” and we will send your gift on to UMCOR.
