The Word

“Then he said to me, ‘Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.’ ”
– Ezekiel 37:4-5

Expedition

Mission: Nigeria 2015

Climbing For Christ has ministered to a primitive people living in the uninviting Koma Hills near the Cameroon border since visiting in 2011.

PRAY: For Christians under attack in the Northeast, where terrorists have targeted the church in a quest to impose Islamic Sharia law. While Nigeria is 50.4 percent Christian most of those believers are in the South. Islam is the largest religion in the North, where Christians face severe persecution.

Mission Moments: Nigeria

Motorcycles, opposition, miracles, and a church When Pastor Chris Joseph arrived in Adamawa State in Nigeria’s notorious northeast, he found a ban against motorcycle travel. The long-time Climbing For Christ member and ministry partner was returning to the Koma Hills along Nigeria’s border with Cameroon for the seventh time. He set out for Adamawa State from his home Rivers State in the south early on Monday, Sept. 7. “Due to the activities of Boko Haram and incessant armed robbery attacks, we passed the night in Jalingo, Taraba State,” Chris said. “We pro...

Along the fault line between Islam and Christianity   The Atlantika Mountains in Nigeria’s notorious northeast. September 11 is a date that lives in infamy. But four days before – on Sept. 7, 2001 – acts of terror were committed in Nigeria that elevated the animosity between Christians and Muslims to new and more disturbing heights. These stories went mostly unreported in the wake of attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda on the United States. “Nigeria’s troubles between Christians and Muslims began in the late 1960s, during the Biafran c...

Mission Moments: NIGERIA

Many Koma to Christ The threat of terrorism delayed C4C’s most recent foray into the Koma Hills. But the enemy could not keep the Word from reaching the Koma people living in Nigeria’s remote northeast. We wrestled successfully against the cosmic powers over this present darkness – including the failure of the local chief to announce the impending visit of our own Pastor Chris Joseph – to share the Jesus film and preach the Truth to a crowd of about 200 people. “Soaked in the power of the Holy Ghost, I expounded the Scriptures to them, exposing the dange...

A door opens in Nigeria “…for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” – 1 Corinthians 16:9 (ESV) As we shared about the threats of Boko Haram in northeastern Nigeria [see ‘I am Nigerian’] and prayed specifically for the work God has for Climbing For Christ among remote people living in the mountains there, a door was opened. When Pastor Chris Joseph, a C4C member and ministry partner in Nigeria, contacted Chief Moses of the Koma people about our next visit to the Atlantika Mountains, the chief informed us that h...

Mission Moments: NIGERIA

‘I am Nigerian’ There was outrage: More than 1 million people walked the streets as a sign of solidarity against the attacks of Islamic terrorists. Forty world leaders joined the rally. The news was reported globally. “Je suis Charlie.” I am Charlie. The slogan was adopted by supporters of freedom in the wake of the murder of 12 journalists at the satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, in Paris on Jan. 7.   There was no slogan, no rally, no outcry, and very little reported internationally when Boko Haram – one of the ultimate Islamic terrorist groups in the...
