who died, and are now unaccounted for. It is unclear if the Sherpas are
On the South side of
Everest, a small team of Gustavo Lisi (Argentina) and
Nils Antezana (Bolivia) attempted the Summit with 2
Sherpas. Some of the members summited, but Dr. Nils Antezana got into
trouble on the way down. The guide returned from the Summit but then needed to
be helped down by the Pemb Sherpa
from the Irish expedition. The 2 Sherpas returned late from the Summit,
but are safe in camp 4.
Antezana is still believed to be up on Everest. His family asks for a plea of
help from whoever can. "THERE MUST BE A SEARCH PARTY SENT OUT FOR HIM!!!!"
We ask you to join us in prayer for these
families in this time of need.
