On April 25 at 11:41am IST, an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 rocked the small nation of Nepal.

Nearly 100 aftershocks, including a magnitude-6.7 temblor Sunday, have hindered rescue efforts and terrorized residents who are forced to sleep in open squares and parks due to the weakened state of buildings.

The quake unleashed a devastating avalanche on Mount Everest, killing at least 18 people and injuring dozens. Some warned that dozens of people may still be missing and were almost certainly dead.

Many of the roads to remote hill tribe communities are believed to be cut off by landslides, making it likely that some of these communities can only be reached by helicopter.

The death toll from Saturday's earthquake has passed 5,000, with thousands injured and more deaths expected as rescue efforts move into more of the affected areas.

Will you pray with us for the people of Nepal? Pray for health, for safety, for provision, and for healing from heartbreak. Ask the Comforter to be with the people and to move in their hearts.
