Mission: Nepal 2019 (Part 1) Trip Report

Following in God’s footsteps By Gary Fallesen, founding president, Climbing For Christ Our team treks past the church at Yarsha. (Photos by Gary Fallesen) Wherever you GO, there God is. Moses instructed Joshua not to fear: “The LORD himself goes before you” (Deuteronomy 31:8). Then Joshua heard it from the LORD Himself: “Your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9). David recognized there is nowhere in the universe that God will not be present: “If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!” (Psalm 139:8).... Read more »

Dispatches: Nepal 2019 (Part 1)

Mission: Nepal 2019 (Part 1) By Gary Fallesen, founding president, Climbing For Christ Friday, Feb. 22 Clouds hung over the valley as we ascended into the Manaslu area. (Photo by Gary Fallesen) We were in a Middle Eastern airport early this morning when the call to prayer rang out. I was again reading about Jesus giving us the power to “bind and loose” as found in Matthew 16:19 and Matthew 18:18. These commands have come up time and time again in recent weeks and they remain my prayer, first for Nepal and then for the other areas where God is sending us. T... Read more »

Mission: Ararat 2019

Together, a world apart The Turk and the American may be a world apart culturally and spiritually, but they share a love of cherries and friendships with Kurdish people. Governments cannot divide them – even though we know our fights are not against flesh and blood but evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world (Ephesians 6:12). Turkey is an amazing place, steeped in Biblical HIStory. We have followed in the footsteps of Paul. This was the birthplace of the early church. It is where the seven major churches of early Christianity were founded. That was before the rise of Islam. Be... Read more »

Mission: Nepal 2019

Soldiering for the kingdom The revered Gurkha soldiers have roots in the region. Soldier for Christ Megh Gurung dreamed of being a Gurkha when he grew up in the area, a place he says “is very rich in culture and heritage.” It’s also steeped in high mountains, Hinduism and Buddhism. Climbing For Christ returns to the Annapurna Region in 2019; this time exploring the Manaslu area, where the world’s eighth-highest mountain looms at 8,163 meters (26,781 feet). “I hope we can open the door to hearts in those areas,” said Megh, our kingdom worker in Nepal. He p... Read more »

Project 1:27 Nepal

Sponsor a Nepali child There are about three dozen children cared for outside of Kathmandu by Nepali partner ministry SARA. We support SARA and these children through Project 1:27, which is based on James 1:27 (“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”). You can sponsor an orphan for US$50 a month. This will provide food, medicine, and clothing. But even more, it will show the love of Christ to a child and answer His command to “look after...

Trip Report: Nepal 2018

God’s math doesn’t add up; He multiplies Story and photos by Gary Fallesen, founding president, Climbing For Christ “The seeds that fell on good ground are the people who hear and understand the message. They produce as much as 100 or 60 or 30 times what was planted.” – Matthew 13:23 (CEV) God’s math is multiplication. We do addition and subtraction, but God is about multiplying. We calculate 1+1+1, while God uses power to produce exponential numbers. See the story about the farmer in Matthew 13, where seed is scattered in a field – some falling on ... Read more »

Dispatches: Nepal 2018

Mission: Nepal 2018 By Gary and Elaine Fallesen Sunday, April 22  Pastor Tej Rokka and his wife, Bidhya (left to right); Gary and Elaine, and Bhim and Megh Gurung. Elaine is holding the C4C birthday cake our Nepali brothers and sisters presented us on April 20. We read a devotional on our flights back to the United States called “Ending Well,” which correctly stated: “it is a travesty for any follower of Jesus to arrive at the end of their race with strength to spare. We are to be poured out, spent, and exhausted on the Gospel.” Amen! The same... Read more »

In the Mid-West district of Rolpa, the church at Korchabang went out (just as Jesus directed in Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:15) and planted more churches. What began with one believer... Read more »

We built the church at Dapcha with ministry partner SARA (Savior Alone Redeems Asians) and then helped build the main SARA church in Kathmandu in 2014. Dapcha, Korchabang and Kathmandu were followed by the building of the first house of worship in the remote Humla district in Nepal&rs... Read more »

Photo of the Week: NepalConstruction on the church at Dharmashala in Nepal’s Mid-West district of Rolpa had been delayed. But work sprang into action again last week and brother Megh Gurung (C4C’s missionary to Nepal) reported it soon would be completed. “Dharamsala is a beautiful church!!!” declared C4C Canada coordinator Brandy Fisher, who along with her husband Matthew (both Mission: Nepal veterans) helped us fund this building. “That brings me great joy to see!!! GOD IS SO GOOD!!! He is taking back the high places for HIS glory – places that were not glorying to Him, now will ... Read more »

Building another house in His name Looking over the land where God will be praised. (Photos by Megh Gurung) Work has begun on the house of worship for the church at Dharmashala in the Mid-West district of Rolpa. Brother Megh, Climbing For Christ’s kingdom worker in Nepal, said the church will be built in a month and then worship will be held there. “All the leaders arrived at the spot (where the church will be constructed) and prayed and I talked with all of them,” said Megh, who visited Rolpa with his wife. Interlocking compressed earth blocks for the building ... Read more »

This is because of the passage of anti-conversion laws. Pray for the boldness of the world’s fastest-growing church to continue in spite of opposition.

Mission: Nepal 2018

No branch can bear fruit by itself Megh Gurung, Climbing For Christ’s missionary to Nepal, shared his “passion and vision” for work in a region that will be new to C4C. He planted a church in 2017 in Pokhara, a popular tourist destination in Nepal’s West Region. Climbing For Christ will trek far from the beaten path (remembering we GO where others cannot or will not), but there is a strategic purpose for GO-ing to much-visited Pokhara. “The house owner doesn’t want to rent to the Christians,” Megh said of the church plant there. “I want...

(Photo by Dave Stoessel) Pastor Dulsar once led Maoists in a bloody civil war that killed more than 19,000 people in Nepal from 1996-2006. Now he leads the church in a place that has been a stronghold to both communism and his country’s Hindu tradition. The Holy Spirit led him from a life as a rebel to walking with Jesus.

Good news in Nepal flood relief Distribution of flood relief. (Photos courtesy SARA Ministries) Climbing For Christ was honored to send US $2,251.85 provided by God through seven donors who were moved by our Aug. 15 appeal for help with Nepal flood relief. Pastor Tej Rokka and his team from SARA (Savior Alone Redeems Asians) ministries last week delivered food (rice, dahl, salt), mosquito nets, plastic tarps, and medicine for 211 families in the Rautahat District along the border of India. Rautahat is a unique district because it has the largest percent of Muslims (nearly 20%) i... Read more »

Looking after orphans and widows By Gary Fallesen, founding president, Climbing For Christ “But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand.

(Photo by Duncan Nyozani) Vincent Kuchuwa, who is 7 years old, lost his mother when he was a baby. Later his father also died. Then his grandparents died. He was cared for in southern Malawi by an old, very poor couple, who often f... Read more »
