Let us Build a House

May 2016 update

In December 2015 we were challenged to build a house in Nepal after the devastating earthquake.  Redgorton and Stanley Parish raised enough for a house and a half!

Just before noon on Saturday 25 April, 2015, was when the first earthquake struck Nepal. Lasting just 45 seconds; causing devastation, changing lives forever. 45 seconds that caused over 8000 people to lose their lives and over 6 million families to lose their homes.  45 Seconds is the time it would take to sing a verse of the Hymn, ‘Let us build a House’.

Let us build a house where love can dwell
and all can safely live,
a place where saints and children tell
how hearts learn to forgive;
built of hopes and dreams and visions,
rock of faith and vault of grace;
here the love of Christ shall end divisions:
All are welcome,
all are welcome,
all are welcome in this place.

Our partner the United Mission to Nepal (UNM) has just completed the training of the first 125 stone masons who will support the re-construction of damaged rural houses in Dhading district. They are the first of a planned 500 traditional and locally based masons who are receiving practical training on Earthquake Resistant Building Construction Techniques. The training has been carried out to nationally agreed standards and will enable these men to support the re-construction and gain much needed employment.

Now they should be able to start on our house and a half.

Holiday Clubs 2016

THE HOLIDAY CLUB                                                                                                                                The Olympics in Rio visited Bankfoot then Luncarty in August, our participants were aged 4 to 80 and 30-40 people joined in each day, most of them children.  Thank you to everybody involved including people who prayed for us, lent us equipment and donated snacks and many other essential things.  Each day included warm up, craft, messy games, songs, drama, team games, snack and a story.  The bible story was acted out with the hearers and often involved fishing nets, water pistols, hats and stunts.  The Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio reminded us that everybody is welcomed by Jesus.  The theme for the day was in an Olympic ring and we were all invited to FOLLOW Jesus, CARE for people as Jesus did, see how AWESOME Jesus is and hear athletes at the games talk about their inspiration.  We saw how Peter trusted Jesus and we played TRUST games and we discovered how we can GROW in the days after Holiday Club like seeds in good soil.

Karen Kelman our youth worker led a small team of adults, assisted by some very capable teenagers who did a brilliant job.  As our theme song reminded us regularly “with God’s help, we can reach our goal”.
