The Church during 2021: See if your church can help with India and Nepal With Second Covid Lockdown
May 30, 2021 by SLIMJIM
For this Sunday here’s what you can do: See if your church can help with India and Nepal With Second Covid Lockdown.
I have covered a few weeks ago a Sunday post on Pray for India and Nepal Concerning the Rise of Virus Infections. That is actually one of our regular prayers in our church. Besides the virus there is also the consequences of a lockdown which has been going on for a month now: People who have very little are suffering from an economy that have come to a standstill.
Regardless your politics with your perspective of what the government should and should not do one can admit that the lockdown hurt people in India and Nepal especially the poor. Back in March BBC published an article titled “Covid-19 disruptions killed 228,000 children in South Asia, says UN report” and had this to say:
The disruption in healthcare services caused by Covid-19 may have led to an estimated 239,000 maternal and child deaths in South Asia, according to a new UN report.
It’s focused on Afghanistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, home to some 1.8 billion people.
The report found that women, children and adolescents were the worst-hit.
One of those countries has now the highest Covid transmission rate in the world while also having struggling medical info structure even before Covid:
Besides prayer I want to ask if you might be able to help in other tangible ways by brainstorming with your church. James 2:15-16 leaped out at me tonight: “If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?”
There are believers from that area that I know. They have reached out with me for help. Our family plan to help. But we are only one family. I’m going to ask our church during today’s church servant meeting in the afternoon if others can help out too financially as an official church effort. No matter what the church plans to do we are going to already send funds to help first.
I know not everyone can be in the position to get their church to figure out what help looks like. If you can at least pray for our local church be able to step up at this time to help believers there.
