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...

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. We have spent this 30-day period lifting up our Muslim neighbors from all around the globe. Ramadan begins today and continues until June 14. 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 »

Mission Moments: Ecuador and Colombia

Together, we can win more souls By Jordan Rowley Sometimes things simply appear to be impossible. There just doesn’t seem to be a way forward. 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... Read more »

Mission Moments: Ecuador

Guided by the Spirit Climbing For Christ’s missionary to Peru, Jaime Servat, has long had a burden on his heart to reach out to the lost in the mountains of South America. He is currently serving in Ecuador. This Mission Moment was written based on his latest report.   “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.” – Romans 8:14 Jose closed his eyes one last time on this Earth, only to open them again – in Heaven. Just hours before, this man was dying, heading to an eternity separated from the love of Jesus Christ. B... Read more »

Serving from our knees

GOing in prayer By Jordan Rowley, Climbing For Christ spiritual coordinator With spiritual eyes, I can see men and women of God battling the forces of darkness. They are engaging in a battle that is waged not with earthly weapons, but with God’s weaponry. They advance not on their feet, but on their knees. “Prayer is where the action is,” one mighty man of God once said. It’s true, if we only have eyes to see it. Sadly, prayer is the most underrated and underutilized piece of the Christian’s arsenal. Whether it’s for our own personal needs, for our ch... Read more »

Revisiting Huayhuash  (Photos by Jaime Servat, Climbing For Christ missionary to Peru)  God sent a team of seven North Americans to the Cordillera Huayhuash range of the Peruvian Andes in 2014. Our main objective for that Mission: Peru 2014 was simply to reach out to remote Quechua farming communities with the love and truth of Jesus. The stunning Yerupaja Mountain located in the Cordillera Huayhuash. We were joined by C4C’s missionary to Peru, Jaime Servat, as well as guide Marco Milla. Several months after our expedition, Jaime returned to minister to s... Read more »

Mission: Peru 2018

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...

God is always on the move By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ After a season of personal health and family issues, Climbing For Christ’s missionary to Peru, Jaime Servat, was excited to join the Mission: Peru 2017 team in late July and early August. It was a blessed mission during which members of our American, Canadian and Peruvian team saw God move in the hearts of many in the remote Cordillera Blanca range of the Peruvian Andes. (CLICK HERE to see the Dispatches from this expedition). Now, God continues to move in those remote mountains as Jaime spent ... Read more »

Project Prayer: Ramadan 2017

Day 30: The witness God can’t use By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Trekking into West Java, Indonesia. (Photo by Rendy Bayutrilaksono, C4C Indonesia) We’ve learned a lot about Islam over the past 30 days. We’ve shared some of the basic beliefs of Muslims as well as a few bridges and barriers we face in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them. We’ve also seen some personal stories and read about beautiful relationships that God has blessed Climbing For Christ to be a part of. Our hope is that Project Prayer: Ra... Read more »

Day 22: By all means, save some! By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ While visiting with new friends in Indonesia in January, the Spirit held our tongue when an opportunity to share the Gospel was apparent. We realized that a relationship starting between a brother in Christ and these men will have greater impact than our fleeting chance to declare the Good News. (Photo by Jordan Rowley) The Apostle Paul was a man on a mission. Actually, he was a man on a commission – a Great Commission! Without a doubt Paul knew that he was sent to reach the natio...

Day 21: A Savior for ALL people By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ No matter where we GO in the world – like this remote village in China, where we found a mosque – there are people in need of our Savior Jesus. (Photo by Gary Fallesen) Our Lord Jesus was sent as a Savior for all people of every place. As an angel once told certain shepherds who were keeping watch over their flocks by night: “I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.” The Apostle John would later write: “and we have seen and testify tha...

Day 20: The Word By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ After discussing that the Bible has not been corrupted, a Muslim friend asked us for a Bible for his son. (Photo by Shawn Dowd, Mission: Kilimanjaro 2007) As Christians, we believe that God’s Word has been protected and preserved over the centuries for the blessing and building of His Church. “The grass withers, the flower fades,” we read in Isaiah 40:8, “but the word of our God stands forever.” Inspired, inerrant and intact; our Bible is the true representation of the ...

Day 19: Obey Me   By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Evangelist Haseeb, a Climbing For Christ member, teaches from the Bible in Pakistan. (Photo by Save Pakistan) As we saw yesterday, the Qur’an attributes numerous miracles to Jesus, or Isa, as He’s known to most of the world’s nearly 2 billion Muslims. Followers of Islam agree that Isa was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life and even healed the sick and raised the dead. Just looking at those miraculous details of the life of Isa, there is no one who compares. No other ... Read more »

Day 18: The uniqueness of Isa By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ A Muslim friend reads about Jesus in the New Testament while resting in the sun on Mount Ararat. (Photo by Gary Fallesen, Mission: Ararat 2010) JESUS. The One whose beautiful name is above every other name. JESUS. The One who, stepping down from heaven, was born of a virgin to live a sinless and righteous life. JESUS. The One who walked on water, calmed the storm, gave sight to the blind and raised the dead. JESUS. The One who died a brutal death, bearing on Himself the sins of the world... Read more »

Day 17: Barriers and Bridges By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ A Climbing For Christ member disciples a Muslim background believer in the Atlas Mountains. (Photo by Gary Fallesen) The differences between Christianity and Islam are massive and many. There are huge points of division upon which both religions completely conflict. Still there are many who say that Christians and Muslims (and perhaps followers of any and every other religion) worship the same god. That simply cannot be true. There are far too many critical positions that are polar opposit... Read more »

Day 16: Witness and BE witnesses By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Lambok, a Climbing For Christ Indonesia member, witnesses to Sunda people in a rice field in West Java by lending a hand. (Photo by Gary Fallesen) We’re going to look at a few points that relate to sharing our faith with followers of Islam in the coming week. We’ll look at some of the possible barriers that can make it extremely difficult for an individual who has been raised in a Muslim culture to trust in Jesus as their Savior. In addition, we’ll take a look at some o... Read more »

Day 8: Islam 101 – A world of diversity By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Behind every set of Muslim eyes is a soul loved by God and in need of rescue, like these Berber children and women in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. (Photos by Michael Heitland and Brandy Fisher, Mission: Morocco 2013) We’ve been looking at some of the basic beliefs and practices of the world’s second-largest religion this past week. (Click on the links at the bottom of this page for any days you may have missed.) But Islam is much bigger than the beli... Read more »

Day 7: Islam 101 – Fulfilling the Five Pillars By Jordan Rowley, spiritual coordinator, Climbing For Christ Our Mission: Ararat 2014 team poses with a Kurdish family in eastern Turkey. On the wall above us is a portrait of The Grand Mosque in Mecca. Families will hang photos of sons (usually), who have made the hajj to Mecca. The hajj is one of Islam’s Five Pillars. In addition to the essential beliefs we looked at yesterday, Islam is a religion involving duties. The obligations are known to Sunni Muslims as “The Five Pillars of Islam” – arkan al... Read more »
