Perhaps Climbing For Christ’s missionary to Peru, Jaime Servat, experienced some of those feelings himself as he spent the past few years enduring numerous personal trials. But with God all things are possible, and there is always a way forward. As Jaime concluded his latest report with Mark 10:27, I couldn’t help but wonder if some of those thoughts were in his mind. “But Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men it i...

A hard-to-reach harvest Since our very first survey trip to the Peruvian Andes in May of 2011, we’ve never seen a lack of harvest. During those six Evangelic Expeditions and our ongoing work done by Climbing For Christ’s missionary to Peru, Jaime Servat, we’ve never witnessed a shortage of souls ready and ripe make a decision to trust in Jesus. Rather, the harvest has always been plentiful! “Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields,” Jesus declared in John 4:35, “for they are already white for harvest!” All throughout the b...

Fighting folk religion in the Andean mountains By Gary Fallesen, founding president, Climbing For Christ Jaime Servat surveyed the village of Chalhua, located about 10,000 feet (3,050 meters) up in the Cordillera Blanca mountains in Peru. Climbing For Christ has ministered there since 2011 and funded the building of a church for the village.

This contributed to our assigning Jaime to work in Chalhua, evangelizing the community and growing the church. Jaime has been a...

God will put people in your path for a purpose. Take a little girl named Alisson in a little village called Chalhua in the Peruvian Andes. We met Alisson on Mission: Peru 2011. She befriended our team and stole the hearts of team members. Jaime Servat, our missionary to Peru, has become a surrogate father of sorts to Alisson. Her real father was an alcoholic who killed himself years ago. Every time Jaime visits Chalhua he delivers gifts to Alisson, prays with her, teaches her, and helps care for her family. Alisson’s story in 2011 broke our hearts. Her mother, Taina, who suffere...
