Nepal has been rocked by a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake that has killed more than 1,000 people in the area and has left parts of the country in complete ruins. The earthquake has also triggered a large avalanche on nearby Mt. Everest that has killed many climbers in the area, as well.
Urgent Prayer Request: Many of you may or may not know, but there has been a massive earthquake in Nepal. Much death and destruction has occurred in Nepal, Tibet, China, and India. Everest has been hit very hard. Some of you may not know this, but for many years I covered the climbing seasons on Mt. Everest and other mountains in the region for my own site and others. I have many, many friends still climbing and some of them are currently in the area and the news isn’t good. We do know that there are fatalities on Everest. First Base Camp has been rocked hard by an avalanche. This is the prime time for climbers to be in the area. I am getting small bits of information from climbers in the area, but most communications are down. The Khumbu Valley has also been hit hard. Many of the Sherpas who help the climbers up and down Everest live in this area. I have friends there, as well as Nepal and Tibet. They all need prayers right now. Everyone who is affected, all the climbers, their families who are back home worried about them, their Sherpa teams, and the expedition teams. So sad to hear about this today. Praying that rescue teams can get to the region quickly and help save as many as possible from further harm. Alan Arnette has posted a brief audio update from Camp 2 this morning on Lhotse. Lhotse is a neighboring mountain, but both share the same Base Camp. He is ok. He makes it clear, though..that others are not. Please send up some special prayers today.
