Following the 7.8 magnitude earthquake this weekend in Nepal that claimed thousands of lives and thousands more injured, the World Methodist Council Social Justice & International Affairs Committee issued the following statement on behalf of the World Methodist Council:

We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the victims of the earthquake in Nepal, their families, and the surrounding nations. We pray for the Methodist-Wesleyan family of Churches in Nepal to continue their mission and purpose amidst these difficult circumstances, and we acknowledge the relief and mission work being done by other Methodist-Wesleyan family members in that country. We ask that all continue to join hands in prayer for the victims and those who are affected. We pray and ask that the Methodist-Wesleyan family further engage in actions that will assist the country to move forward after this incident, following the words of John Wesley to, “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.” We believe that Jesus Christ continuously spread peace in the world, and we pray for His peace to cover all of the families affected.
