By now most everyone has heard of the earthquake in Nepal, leaving many families torn and homeless. As climbers, Nepal and the Himalayas hold a special place in our hearts as the home of Mount Everest.

Time magazine and The New York Times have posted helpful articles on how we can help. Please join us in praying for the citizens of Nepal and for the lives affected by Saturday’s earthquake.
