All four seasons at Mendon Ponds Park

Climbing For Christ board member Kevin Kimble said it well when he spoke of God "blessing us with all four seasons" as we hit the trails with Heritage Christian Services on Saturday, April 20th. At times it was sunny like summer, crisp like fall, and even snowy like winter. Of course, all along the trail the buds were beginning to pop as well, signaling the official arrival of spring. Ready to hit the trail We've been incredibly blessed by the wonderful fellowship and friendship that we've experienced throughout many seasons here in the Rochester area, as well as in the Adirondack Mountai...

[CLICK HERE to read Fiery Persecution in Pakistan.] Since then, these precious families have struggled to regain any sense of their “normal” lives. “It was incredible to see the people who were struggling to get relief items from us,” Haseeb Masih, of C4C partner ministry Save Pakistan, said after returning from his third trip to Lahore. During this visit, women’s clothing as well as men’s, women&rs... Read more »

Two Christian churches were also burned as the mob of nearly 4,000 Muslim men took to the streets of Lahore. Shortly after this incident, one of Climbing For Christ’s partner ministries, Save Pakistan, responded and went to Lahore to minister to the needs of those affected by the attack. In... Read more »


Throughout most of the past thousand years, Morocco has been ruled by a series of dynasties. The most recent, known as the Alaouite dynasty, dates back to the 1600s. Today, the Kingdom of Morocco is what’s known as a constitutional monarchy. This was established in 1957 by Sultan Mohammed V, after Spanish and French rule of the territory. In the late 7th Century, the indigenous Berber peoples of Morocco (along with many other North African peoples and nations) were gradually dominated and subdued during the Arab Muslim conquests. Since that time, Morocco has essentially remained a Musl... Read more »

The spectacular 22,205-foot (6,768-meter) Huascaran Norte in the Cordillera Blanca. (Photo by Gabe Colburn, C4C) Many powerful civilizations once called ancient Peru their home. One of the more prominent peoples in history to occupy this land were the Incas. However, in spite of thier stature, upon the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in 1533, the Incas saw their empire captured and virtually destroyed. After almost 300 years of foreign occupation, Peruvian independence was declared in 1821 and fully realized in 1824. Since then, Peru has faced many years of corrupt and selfish governme...
