With all the political unrest in the area, it's important that we understand the severity and reality of what is going on. Below is an article that was published recently by The Week on the events that are unfolding. The article also gives a short background to reasons behind the unrest. These are difficult times for our friends in Nepal, and we ask for prayer for them and all others caught up in the middle of this political strife.

With the magnificence of the Himalayas as a backdrop, the bustling city of Kathmandu has always been known for its allure to tourists, trekkers and those searching for a better understanding of the culture of Nepal.
In the aftermath of the earthquake, Kathmandu has a new identity, that of a tent city. This video, shot just a few days ago, shows the new Kathmandu, a city of rubble and ruin where people are now living on the sidewalks under tarps held up by ropes. Some have no homes to return to, others are just afraid to return home as strong aftershocks continue to rumble through the region.
Madan posted on his Facebook page last week "5.0 Richter scale earthquakes are just normal for us now."

Today the team delivered relief aid to 50 families from the villages of Sankhu, Changu and Sundarijal in the Bhaktapur district.
This is the translation of the video above:
"God bless you and thank you for this help. We are from Changu in the Bhaktpur district mountain area. It takes us one hour by bus to get here. We hope we find a bus to get back today otherwise we will have to walk. We lost everything from the earthquake. We have nothing left."

|More destruction in Bhaktapur|
In the three hours after the quake, there were more than six after shocks measuring between 4-6 on the richter scale.
In spite of this dangerous situation, our team continued to distribute aid late into the night to students in Kapan and people in Koteshower. Today they returned to Bhaktpur with food and shelter for another 100 families.
The generosity of so many people is making these relief missions possible and for that we are incredibly grateful.
