Mission Moments: Peru

Walking in newness of life By Jordan Rowley Sharing the Gospel in the mountainous places of the world comes with its fair share of challenges. The blessings, however, far outweigh the burdens. One of the greatest joys of mission work is seeing lives radically changed for the better – in Jesus’ name. People are healed of physical ailments; chains of addiction are broken; mourning gives way to dancing; hearts turn from the depths of despair to soaring hope. The most exciting, perhaps, is seeing death done away and new birth ushering in a new life. “… Just ... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 15

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018 “It is finished.” – John 19:30 Great God and Savior, We lament the millions of laboring souls throughout Hinduism. Many have their afterlife (or next life, rather) on their minds continually. That is a good thing. It is good that Hindus are concerned with how their actions today will affect their lives tomorrow. Yet, the idea of being good enough and doing good enough to merit a better life puts them on a vicious cycle that will neve... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 14

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018 “… You will be my witnesses…” – Acts 1:8 Heavenly Father, We thank You for the amazing honor of being Your witnesses – and we rejoice in that privilege! However, we grieve, too – along with you – in the lack of Christian witness among the world’s billion Hindus. Entire people groups remain unreached. Hundreds of them. You know this, Lord. You know of the multiplied millions who have absol... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 13

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Friday, Nov. 9, 2018 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you…” – Acts 1:8 Lord of all, We acknowledge our powerlessness without You. We confess our inability apart from You. But, we also rejoice in the great power we have in You. We celebrate all that You are able to do through us, by Your Spirit. Lord, we look to You for filling, anointing, empowering and blessing. We long for Your Spirit’s power ,not for us, but so ... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 12

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018 “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” – Matthew 19:26 Dear Lord, We worship You – the God who makes all things possible. You are able to move in even the most desperate of situations. You are able to minister to even the greatest of needs. You are able to touch even the hardest of hearts. So, in faith we come to You today and ask for the impossible. We ask You to move and minister and touch th... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 11

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018 “You are the light of the world.” – Matthew 5:14 Almighty God, Tonight, Hindus around the world will celebrate Diwali – the festival of lights. In spite of its intent, Diwali is actually a festival of darkness during which false gods of a false religion give false hope to the masses. Lord, we pray that many would sense and see Your light shining through the dark. By Your Spirit and by Your servants, may You shine Your truth int... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 10

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018 “Without Me you can do nothing.” – John 15:5 Father, We give thanks for the Vine of Christ. May we take our place with all humility, agreeing that apart from Jesus – the Source of life – we bring nothing of value. Nor can we do anything that will be of any eternal worth. Yet with Christ, all things are possible. All things! Grant us hearts to abide in Jesus, Lord. May we humbly and wholly allow Your life-giving power to flow through us &nda... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 9

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Monday, Nov. 5, 2018 “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” – Matthew 9:37-38 Dear Lord, A field of one billion Hindu souls is a plentiful harvest to be sure. So many people in so many places are so ripe to be reached for Christ. They are ready to turn from the religion of Hinduism to a relationship with Jesus. They are ready, but they don’t even know it. Who will tell them? Who... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 8

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018 “I am coming soon.” – Revelation 22:7 Father God, We look forward to the day when we will forever be with You! We look to a day with no more pain and no more tears. Yet, while we wait, may we be found working. And may we be found hastening the day of Your return. The faith that we have received, may we be quick to share with others. Bless us with opportunities to share the Good News with those around us – and give us special opportunities to sha...

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 7

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018 “Ask, and it will be given to you…” – Matthew 7:7 Heavenly Father, Your word tells us that every good and perfect gift is from You. And we read that all too often we do not have only because we do not ask. Help us be quicker to ask of You, Father, especially for those things that are near to Your heart. “Ask and I will give You nations,” the Psalmist sings. So we ask now, Lord, believing and trusting in Your great name and in Your g... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 6

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Friday, Nov. 2, 2018 “... Be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33 Almighty God, You have overcome the world! You have conquered sin and sickness; despair and death. You are victorious over the grave. Hell has no power over Your people. We take great comfort in knowing this, though it certainly doesn’t mean that everything will go our way in this world. Many will face rejection from family for putting their faith in You. Many will suffer persecution in Your... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 5

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest… For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28, 30 Dear Lord, The burden for many in this world is weighty. Thank You, Lord, that You invite all who are heavy laden to come to You. Many in the Hindu world are certainly desperate for rest – true rest. While Hinduism requires ever more sacrifice and offerings and good deeds, You tell these people to si... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 4

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2018 “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” – John 8:36 Redeeming King, Today, we pray for liberty for those who are bound. Jesus, You came to this earth to “set the captives free.” No doubt, there are many in the Hindu world who are held in chains. They are influenced, possessed and controlled by forces they are powerless against. Lord, break the chains of religion; break the chains of tradition; break the chains o... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 3

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018 “But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’” – Matthew 9:13 Almighty God, We are so grateful for Your beautiful heart of mercy and compassion. You are so gracious toward Your created people. Thank You especially for the cross – the ultimate display of Your mercy. Lord, today we lift up those who do not know Your heart of mercy and Your desire to forgive through the blood of Jesus. We lift up those in the ... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 2

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Monday, Oct. 29, 2018 “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”  – John 14:6 Dear Lord, So many in this world have known only one way – the Hindu way. Since infancy they have been raised in the religion of their ancestors. Most do not know that there is another way, the Way – a Truth which alone leads to Life. Apart from You there simply is no other. The way of Hinduism is a path of devotion to gods or goddesses, ... Read more »

Project Prayer for the Hindu world, Day 1

Life-giving words of Jesus By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018 “… You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”  – Matthew 22:39 One billion people in today’s world identify as Hindu. Let that number sink in. One billion. That’s about 15 percent of our global population! That’s roughly one out of every seven people! That’s a big opportunity, or rather, responsibility, for us as Christians. But what would Jesus have us do? The most Christ-like thing we could do is simply be their ... Read more »

Mission Moments: Peru

The ‘path of the just’ in the Andes of Peru By Jordan Rowley “The path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day,” says Proverbs 4:18. And beautiful are the feet of the ones who walk that path – to share the Good News of Jesus. Climbing For Christ’s missionary to Peru, Jaime Servat, has once again been stepping out and shining the glorious light of God’s kingdom in the Cordillera Blanca range of the Peruvian Andes (an area where C4C has been serving for roughly eight years). Though we’ve ... Read more »

Mission Moments: Peru

Converting the soul By Jordan Rowley The path to Paño. (Photos by Jaime Servat)  “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul,” Climbing For Christ’s missionary to Peru, Jaime Servat, concluded in his latest report, in reference to Psalm 19:7. Jaime knows a thing or two about “converting the soul.” No matter where he goes, Jaime delights to tell those around him about the Good News of Jesus – and many make a decision to trust in Christ.   Most recently, the Lord sent him to the province of Llamellin. “I...

Mission Moments: Peru

Encouragement that goes a long way By Jordan Rowley The demands and trials of life often push us to the point of flatlining – mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. This is especially true when your life is that of a rural mountain farmer in the Peruvian Andes, working hard just to survive, day in and day out.  No matter one’s circumstances in this world, a little encouragement can go a long way. In the Climbing For Christ world, a little encouragement always goes a long way – in distance, that is. Roadside view in Huantar. (Pho... Read more »

Project Prayer: Ramadan 2018

Islam FAQs By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Day 1: Asking the right questions Climbing For Christ has been honored to stand with numerous ministries and individual believers in prayer during the Islamic celebration of Ramadan every year since 2011.

For the next four-plus weeks, we’ll be taking a look at some basic questions about Islam, such as: Who is Allah? Is Islam a religion of peace? How do Mus... Read more »
