In the aftermath of the total demolition of a Kathmandu slum, CMS partners are still bringing hope to the community.
In May, about 1,000 people were displaced
when the government suddenly flattened the residences and belongings of all those living near the Baghmati river.
Also destroyed were a thriving church and school started by the National Mission Commission of Nepal (NMCN), a CMS partner.
NMCN launched the education centre in 2009, says CMS Timothy mission partner Reena Khadgi.
“Its main vision was to help homeless children and give hope for their future. Within three years lots of children and their parents accepted Jesus.... More than 60 children were coming to the tuition centre and Sunday school.”
Since the destruction, CMS partners are helping provide comfort and care.
Reena says, “NMCN slum ministry coordinator Dev Kumar Khadka is regularly visiting around 120 children in the area. We give snacks and play games, sing songs, draw and pray.
"Recently we distributed pencils and erasers and the children were so happy. We praise God little things make them happy.”
