Let us Build a House

Just before noon on Saturday 25 April, 2015, was when the first earthquake struck Nepal. The earthquake lasted just 45 seconds and 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'.

The World Mission Council challenged Presbyteries and congregations to raise £500 to build a house in Nepal, as part of a three year project in partnership with the United Mission to Nepal.
