As you all know there was an earthquake in Nepal last year. They say it was the worst natural disaster to strike Nepal since 1934.
We were able to collect 1,521,020 won for Nepal, among which 314,990 won were in coins. Thank you for those who cracked their piggy banks for this! We wired the money to Gloria Mission School, Kathmandu. We hope it can help with repairing any damages caused to their school building and the running of their school after the earthquake. I would like to thank all those who participated in this effort, whether it was monetary or through prayers. I am just happy that we were all part of this together, furthering God's kingdom as a body of Christ. Let's continue to live for Him, my brothers and sisters!
We were able to raise and send 1,225,058 won to Jusarang Community Church to support the Drop Box (Baby Box) effort. Let's carry on sharing and looking after those who are in need. Because in our King's eyes, helping our brothers and sisters are no different from doing it for Him. “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:40
If you are interested in continuing to support the Drop Box financially or materially some information is provided below:

Nepal is the third poorest country in Asia. This summer, EWS is partnering with a local school in Kathmandu, Nepal.
The school was established by a missionary to offer affordable education (K-10) in English to the underprivileged class, and it currently has over 300 students attending.
The problem is that most of the teachers at the school are teaching without a college degree. Here's where we come in. The fact that a lot of our members are a) teachers b) who are native English speakers c) with college degrees places us in a good position to serve this school.
A group of volunteers from EWS will go to this school in July to offer seminars in Teaching Methodology, Lesson Planning, and Class Management Skills for the local teachers. Another group will run camps for the students in subject areas that are missing (or weak) in their curriculum, such as, Arts & Crafts, Music, and Science Experiments.
