An earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter Scale struck west of the ancient Nepali capital of Kathmandu, Pokhara, on Saturday 25 April 2015, at 11:41am local Nepal time. It is the most powerful earthquake to hit the region in 81 years. At present we are asking United Methodists throughout the conference to continue to be in prayer for those survivors in Nepal, the first responders and our missionaries in the area. It has been confirmed that all of our missionaries and their families are safe.
