Nepal earthquakeAn International Christian relief organization is praising God for the doors that continue to open up for them in Nepal.  

When the massive and deadly earthquake hit the south Asian country of Nepal last April, Samaritan's Purse responded almost immediately. Now, nine months later, the group is still meeting needs as the slow recovery continues.

Tim Windmeyer, who has been heading up the response efforts in Nepal for Samaritan's Purse, says they have been blessed by a strong working relationship with national leaders.

"The government has really helped and assisted to open doors for clearance of goods to get into the county quickly and really helped us facilitate getting the goods out to where they need to be in the communities,” he says.

Windmeyer tells OneNewsNow they marvel at how God has orchestrated their steps.

"Nepal's main religion is Hinduism and there's a very small Christian population,” he points out. “So the fact that as a Christian organization we've been given access to these communities to reach out and to serve them in love and meet them where they are in need and do it as Christians and do it in God's name is just an amazing opportunity that these doors have been opened for us."

He adds that it's an exciting time in Nepal for Samaritan's Purse.
