(Worthy News)-- The first-hand account from the International Mission Board is one of many reports surfacing of how Nepal's Christian minority is regrouping after a 7.8-magnitude earthquake collapsed many churches during their main weekly worship services, Christianity Today reported.
Reporting by CT in Kathmandu reveals that an accurate tally of churches destroyed and Christians killed remains hard to come by, since anecdotal reports can be duplicated or exaggerated. But it is clear that many Christians died in their churches during weekly prayers. (The Baptist World Alliance reports about 150 Christian deaths have been confirmed.)
"I am getting reports of entire Christian families being wiped out in Kathmandu and outside," Simon Pandey, chairman of the National Christian Fellowship of Nepal, told CT in an interview from his home in a Lalitpur suburb. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2015/may-web-only/nepal-christians-return-worship-after-earthquake-churches.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
