Expedition

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 beautiful mountains of Peru, there are numerous remote farming communities where the Good News of Jesus needs to be proclaimed. Although Peru’s population mostly identify themselves as “Christian,” there are many who have not heard a clear message of the Gospel untouched by a works-based form of religion. Many others in the hard-to-reach areas where C4C has been called to minister have yet to hear the name of Jesus at all.

So, who will GO?

Mission: Peru 2018 will focus on reaching and ministering to the lost in the Cordillera Huayhuash range of the Andes Mountains. There, we’ll add our hands and hearts to the harvest and share the love of Jesus mostly with the local Quechua people.

Our ministry partner who will be guiding our team, Edwin Milla, says this will be a “moderate to difficult” expedition. We’ll be spending hours on the trail trekking from one village (or family) to the next, ascending up 15,000 to 16,000-foot passes over difficult terrain. Needless to say, this is a hard-to-reach harvest, but one that will certainly be worth the effort.

PRAY: For followers of Christ to boldly oppose sin and injustice while ministering to the poor and oppressed. To proclaim the truth that “it is by grace” you are saved, “through faith … not by works” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

GIVE: You can financially support the workers (Jaime and Edwin) and the work in the Peruvian Andes.

GO! Aug. 3-16 to trek in the Huayhuash (pronounced “why-wash”) for nine days to reach people who “have little or no knowledge about the true God,” Edwin said. Cost is estimated at $2,500. For C4C members only. Email info@ClimbingForChrist.org for a mission application and more details.

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 »

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 »
