Working on the church and the Church at Chalhua
Jaime Servat spent half of November in Chalhua, leading worship three times a week at the church Climbing For Christ built and going to “His church altar to pray to God every day with passion to see His hand in Chalhua and other villages.”
God led several people from other villages to Climbing For Christ’s Peruvian missionary.
“One day I was visiting some new believers from Mashco and I met Jhon, a 25-year-old who heard His (call) to receive the Lord Jesus,” Jaime reported. “So I ministered to him and ... Read more »

Returning to the scene of the sublime
Climbing For Christ’s Peruvian missionary, Jaime Servant, returned in September to an area visited by our Mission: Peru 2015 team in July. Here is his report:
I arrived in Jancapampa village (Pomabamba province) the morning of Thursday, Sept. 3, and hiked about one hour to get to the home of the Vega family (Victoria, Dina and Enrique, who received the Lord Jesus Christ in their hearts under prayer during Mission: Peru 2015). I met Victoria’s husband, Guillermo, who had not received the Lord Jesus during our mission outreach. But I was in... Read more »
Photo of the Week: The church at Chalhua, Peru by Jordan Rowley.
Jordan Rowley took this week’s photo on July 24 during Mission: Peru 2015. This is the house that God built through Climbing For Christ. The church has its roots in our first Evangelic Expedition to Peru in 2011. A woman in this village in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range started a church in her house in 2009. By the time our team arrived in May 2011, the believers had outgrown the woman’s house. She and a visiting pastor from a large Pentecostal denomination asked Climbing For Christ to build a church in tha... Read more »

Many sick and afflicted were prayed over and cared for. Many believers were encouraged and edified. New Testaments were distributed to those in need of God’s precious Word. A church that God used Climbing For Christ to construct was celebrated and dedicated. Sixteen souls – more than half of whom had never heard o... Read more »

God had another appointment for us today. As we met with Taina, we discovered her left hand is severely burned. We brought her to the hospital, but they said they wouldn't be able to see her until Thursday. So we went to a clinic instead. Her burns were cleaned and redressed and she was prescribed antibiotics and pain medicine. I believe that the Lord brought us to her just at the right time... Read more »
