Sara Van Aken comes to Redeemer. She went with YWAM to Nepal in January 2015. A severe flood has hit Nepal, and Sara is leading the way in raising support for the pastor and church she worked with. Here's Sara's letter to me explaining the need. If you feel led to help the information is below. Thank you!
In January of 2015, I spent four weeks in Nepal on a team with Youth With A Mission (YWAM). Two of those weeks were spent living in the village of Tikapur, a 16 hour bus ride from Katmandu. We served by constructing concrete outhouses in the backyards’ of six different homes, visiting house fellowships and sharing the gospel, and preached at four different churches in and surrounding the village.
A couple days ago, the Pastor of the church we worked closely with contacted me with an urgent need. Almost the entire village has flooded and more than 30 homes have been damaged, leaving families without food or clothes and living in the local school. As soon as he told me what happened, I felt in my heart that I need to do something.
God loves them and is faithful to those he loves, so I have created a GoFundMe account with the confidence that He will provide! If you feel led to contribute, you can do so by clicking the link provided below. Thank you for your generosity and faithfulness in this matter and I pray that God will bless you in abundance as well.
Love, Sara Van Aken
