After a devastating earthquake in April and a severe aftershock in May that killed more than 9,000 people in Nepal, children wait with their mother for relief items at a mountain distribution site. Their remote villages inaccessible to trucks carrying aid, families braved fierce rains to collect food and corrugated sheet metal for protection from monsoons. Indigenous missionaries have provided rice and other staple items to hungry children enduring lack of shelter, schooling and safe water and sanitation because of the earthquakes. "Even after they receive the relief goods, they have to carry them for four hours to six hours," the director of one indigenous ministry said. "In all these affected areas, they have lost houses and dear ones. Some lost all their children, and some lost their parents. After seeing their condition, I could not control my tears; they just started rolling down. Please lift them up in your prayers so they can hear Jesus, see Jesus and believe in Jesus. Jesus is the only hope for them."
