Not long after that I connected with a Christian woman who lives in India who was asking people to support an orphanage in Nepal that had been damaged by the earthquake. We follow each other on Instagram. :) I later found out that this orphanage, Langtang Children's Home, is a home for disabled children in Kathmandu. Their home was damaged and the children were and still are sleeping/living in tents in an open field. They've had to move their tents to the streets and other "safe" areas after multiple aftershocks. To add insult to injury, this children's home lost their monthly sponsor just a month before the earthquake which is when I started receiving the calls from Nepal. Currently they need immediate relief and another sweet soul I met has set up a Go Fund Me page to help with current needs:
I have yet to receive another call from my "friend" in Nepal since I became connected with Langtang children's home. I know God used this person to open my heart to God's hurting people in Nepal because I know so very little about the country itself other than it's a neighboring country to India and home of Mount Everest. These people have endured so much over the past month - earthquakes, aftershocks, storms, flooding, landslides. Everything they've known has been ripped away from them and it breaks my heart that vulnerable children have to experience tremendous heartache. I'm praying about a permanent way to help Langtang children's home find a new sponsors. I'm open to ideas and suggestions so if you have any, please use the email tab and send me a message (yellow triangle on the banner to the right). I'm also looking at a possible mission trip to Nepal as well so if you'd like to be a part of that, please let me know.
