(Photo by Adrianne Michele) NOTE: On Nov. 27, 2016, I was honored to be asked by Pastor Al Robinson to share about discipleship at Crowsnest Community Christian Centre in Coleman, AB, home church of C4C Canada. I told our brothers and sisters in Christ how God had moved in my life to lead me from the only job I thought I would ever want (a sports writer for a daily newspaper for 27 years) to start Climbing For Christ and serve Him full-time in ministry. I have been doing this for 10 years now. In that span, I have been blessed to lead 50 short-... Read more »

C4C Canada Annual Meeting

Serving a ‘grace-full’ God By Gary Fallesen, founding president, Climbing For Christ Climbing For Christ ministry happens in real time. I am proud of our ability (by the grace of God) to be efficient. Example: Damson Samson, our kingdom worker in East Africa, asks on Monday if it would be possible to receive an extra $500 a month to feed widows in Malawi. On Wednesday, funds are wired. On Thursday, Damson receives the money, buys the food, and distributes it. At C4C Canada’s third Annual Meeting on Saturday, Nov. 26 in Coleman, AB, Board member Aaron Hemphill talked... Read more »

Mission Moments: Malawi

God provides for an abundance of food in Malawi By Gary Fallesen, founding president, Climbing For Christ Feeding the orphans. (Photos by Duncan Nyozani) Climbing For Christ was introduced to the Far & Wide Children’s Home when the Malawi orphanage had a month’s worth of food stolen in October 2009. Pastor Duncan Nyozani, a C4C member since early 2009, contacted us to ask for prayer. The result of our prayer was God’s call for us to replace the stolen food. A few months later, I led a small team to Malawi to survey the work there. God again called us to ... Read more »

Mission Moments: Malawi

Housing project a sweet dream for Malawi widows By Gary Fallesen, founding president, Climbing For Christ No more nightmares for smiling Malita Seven, right, with Climbing For Christ’s Damson Samson. Malita Seven suffered from bad dreams. But since workers began to repair her house as part of Climbing For Christ’s work with widows in southern Malawi, she said, “there is a great change.” The 75-year-old told Damson Samson, our Malawi-based kingdom worker to East Africa, that this ministry is “like an ark where God told Noah to make it so many can ...

Project 1:27 Malawi

Jesus comes to four more orphans Catherine Gwembere with bedding and clothing provided through C4C Canada funding. Here is my story: My name is Catherine Gwembere. I am 8 years old. I am in grade 4. I lost my dad in 2007, when I was only 1 year old. He died of HIV/AIDS after a long illness that left my family with nothing. I cannot remember him. I was never treated with fatherly love in my life. Catherine is learning about our heavenly Father’s love. “I will not leave you as orphans,” Jesus says in John 14:18. “I will come to you.” Catherine is o... Read more »

Mission Moments: Nepal

God smiles on a Nepal family By Gary Fallesen Climbing For Christ president Sumitra Pariyar has endured various trials in her short life. At the age of 7, she suffered a debilitating fever that left her crippled. In 2007, on CHRISTmas day, her father carried her paralyzed body to what was then a house church in the Central Nepal village of Dapcha. He had tried everything to help Sumitra. The small group of Christians in Dapcha at the time prayed for Sumitra’s healing – and she walked again. The Pariyar family surrendered their lives to Jesus. Sumitra has continued to h...

Pray unceasingly for the persecuted

Our brother was going door to door in a Pakistani village, bringing the love of Christ to the people living there. Suddenly, two men appeared. They shook his hand. Then they showed him a pistol and told him, by name, “Your time is finished. Run wherever you can. But you must be killed.” We received word of this incident as we were preparing for the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church on Nov. 2. It was a harsh reminder that we should be praying for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ every day. “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). ... Read more »

Listen to the LORD

By Brandy Everts C4C Canada coordinator Brandy Everts with a young goat and the attention of many women in a village in Morocco. (Photo by Gary Fallesen) Climbing For Christ is not about a job; it’s about Jesus. C4C is about going to unreached areas of the world and sharing Jesus. It’s about hiking in 40ºC (104 ºF) heat to share Jesus with one man in a Nigerian village who has never believed. It’s about playing volleyball at 10,000 feet with 16-year-old girls and sharing the reason why we are hiking in the part of Nepal that they call “home.” ... Read more »

C4C Canada

Welcome to Climbing For Christ Canada! By Brandy Everts Climbing For Christ Canada coordinator While serving on Mission: Nepal 2012, Climbing For Christ president Gary Fallesen preached about being “Blessed to be a Blessing.” Canada has been blessed by God in many different ways, all the way from having Founding Fathers who in 1867 made our constitution founded on Biblical principles to having a God-fearing Prime Minister governing our nation. We have been blessed with food on our tables, heat in our houses, and the list goes on and on. The question is: what are we going to do... Read more »
