2nd Quarter 2015 Update

The second quarter of 2015 has come to an end. CSI was able to continue with relief in Vanuatu after a category 5 cyclone caused widespread damage in March. Many of our donors realize that in disaster situations the needs are ongoing and it takes time thus the need for continued support weeks and months after a disaster event.

On April 25th Nepal experienced its worst earthquake since 1934. Thousands lost their lives. Homes, schools, businesses and other buildings were turned to rubble. CSI mobilized a small assessment team who traveled to Nepal just days following the quake. Once again CSI donors offered support as donations began to come in to assist the people of Nepal. While CSI is no longer on the ground and the news media has all but forgotten about Nepal, we are still taking donations. There are still thousands of people without safe shelter. CSI wants to not only help victims in the immediate days following a disaster but CSI wants to offer assistance in the months and years following. We want the people of Nepal to know they have not been forgotten. Donate to help Nepal

In addition to Disaster Relief, CSI also has a Medical Mission Fund. This fund helps to provide medical mission trips to areas of the world with little access to basic medical care. This fund also allowed CSI to help a young orphan, Saydou, in Burkina Faso who had lost his arm in an accident last year. Saydou qualified to receive a prosthetic limb. CSI was able to raise a portion of the funds needed for Saydou’s medical care.

Remember every dollar counts. We are called to do our part. Remember the widow’s mite in Luke 21? Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins.[b] And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.” ESV And remember, Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more. Luke 12:48
