The earthquake in Nepal was unprecedented in the amount of damage that was caused to the fabric and the hearts of the people. The ancient cities of Lalitpur, Kathmandu and Bhaktapur have been badly hit. Little news has been heard about the villages to the north, west and east, although unofficial word is that many of the houses no longer exist. Roads have been made inaccessible by landslides and the opportunity for helicopters to land is hampered by the lack of suitable places in the maze of terraced fields.
Please pray for the people in Nepal who have been affected.
