The Sherpa are a warm and friendly people, ingrained with kindness and generosity. They are an ethnic group from the most mountainous region of Nepal, high in the Himalayas, and are highly regarded as elite mountaineers and experts in their local terrain.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the followers of Christ among the Sherpa, that they will fully trust the finished work of Christ on the cross, and also trust his Spirit to give them abundant life.
