Climbing For Christ’s calling began here in 2009 when Duncan Nyozani, a pastor and C4C member, contacted us after his orphanage was burglarized and a month’s worth of food for the children in the care of Searchlight Ministries was stolen. C4C provided funding to feed the children and in 2010 we initiated Project 1:27. PRAY: For Project 1:27, based on James 1:27 (“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world”), which seeks to provide for those...

Mission: Malawi 2014 Trip Report Sharing God’s goodness and love Story and photos by Gary Fallesen Climbing For Christ Michele Annibal makes a game-changing assist by delivering a basketball to Malawi. The request was simple enough: the two preschool teachers at the Mothers & Babies Center in Msema, Malawi held up a basketball whose patches had patches. It was a wonder it held air. They asked for a new ball.

A lake safari for the orphans In the weeks leading up to CHRISTmas, Pastor Duncan Nyozani of Searchlight Ministries informed us that the orphans in his care – who are sponsored by Project 1:27 – had requested a trip to the lake for the CHRISTmas and New Year’s holidays. “Every one of them says something about the lake almost every day,” he said. “It seems they have strongly agreed to force us to do this for them.” We were not forced, but moved to give this “lake safari” as an additional CHRISTmas gift. On CHRISTmas day, the childr...

Seed for sowing By Gary Fallesen Climbing For Christ Heavy rains descended on southern Malawi in late November, marking the start of the planting season. The morning after the rain, Pastor Duncan Nyozani emailed: “People will be busy planting their seeds, but it seems most of the people have no seeds to plant due to hunger. And many were expecting to have rains in December, so please pray that we may get seeds and fertilizer for our farmlands.” Duncan, a Climbing For Christ member since February 2009 and the founder of Searchlight Ministries in the Migowi area, said he needed ...

Pray for awareness and training for Christians and a loving witness to Muslims and those practicing traditional religions. GIVE: To the work being done by partner Search...
