Nepal

Top of the world: 29,035-foot/8,848-meter Mount Everest, left, and 25,850-foot/7,879-meter Nuptse. (Photo by Jim Nowlin, Mission: Nepal 2008) Nepal is home to some of the world's most breathtaking and awe-inspiring mountains. In fact, Nepal claims a staggering eight of the world’s 10 highest peaks. It’s no wonder why climbers from every corner of the planet come to make a bid for many of this nation’s Himalayan summits. In addition to the majestic mountains that make up much of Nepal, the history and culture of this nation are also something very unique to behold. Nepal w... Read more »

Mission: Nepal 2014 (Sept.) Trip Report

God opens the way and the doors to Makalu By Gary Fallesen Founding President, Climbing For Christ Megh Gurung was fresh off his first Evangelic Expedition with Climbing For Christ in 2012 when he felt like visiting a Buddhist monastery in his native Nepal. He knocked on the monastery door three times. No answer. In frustration he threw himself on the ground. Lying on his back, hands outstretched overhead, he searched the heavens and cried out to God: “Why?” God’s answer was five points: 1.    Open the way; 2.    Open the door; ... Read more »

Faith-filled prayer delivers By Gary Fallesen President, Climbing For Christ Evangelist Haseeb has “faith like a grain of mustard seed,” as it says in Matthew 17:20, able to “say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible.” On Friday, Sept. 5, Haseeb sent an email to Climbing For Christ spiritual coordinator Jordan Rowley and me, asking us to pray for a break in the monsoon rains that were delaying his Save Pakistan team’s travel to the Mariabad Mela festival. “Your prayer could make th...

Mission Moment: Pakistan

Helping to baptize We kicked off a “Helping Hands” e-appeal in June with Pakistan, where our brother and ministry partner, Evangelist Haseeb, stands strong through the storm of persecution to deliver the Good News.

Mission accomplished! Three Climbing For Christ members responded and more than $600 in support was sent. Haseeb reports: Haseeb teaching about baptism. (Photos... Read more »

Mission Moment: NEPAL

Do arrests mark beginning of persecution? The arrest of about 40 leaders and members of a church in northeastern Kathmandu during a baptism event on Friday, June 13 has prompted a call for prayer for Christians in Nepal. “Please pray for us and Nepal because persecution has begun,” one Nepali Climbing For Christ member and ministry partner emailed the day after the arrests. Reportedly, Hindu government leaders pressured local police to make the arrest. They were charged with forcibly converting Hindus.

Save Pakistan lives, loves in face of persecution By Gary Fallesen Founding President, Climbing For Christ Evangelist Haseeb and his family have moved again with a little help from Climbing For Christ.

Haseeb is used by God to bring a sick woman to Him. Two weeks... Read more »

Mission: Nepal 2014 (Spring) Trip ReportPart 1: Building the church in the dark Story and photos by Gary Fallesen   “X” marks the spot of  the proposed church build. In my mind I could see a church where there was none. I could envision the small planes that provide the only way in and out of Nepal’s Far West district of Humla touching down on the short runway and its passengers seeing a cross in a place that serves as the jump-off point for followers of Hinduism and Buddhism making the pilgrimage to the holy Mount Kailash. In my heart, after visiting Humla three times in 17 months, I know the import... Read more »

Celebrating Easter with those who are not Fatherless   Save Pakistan, our persecuted ministry partner, celebrated the joy of Resurrection Sunday by doing as Jesus instructed: reaching out to the least of those in their own community. That would be the “marginalized Christians” living in Save Pakistan’s Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria. “We had an Easter celebration with 90 orphans to encourage them that the Lord always loves them and He is extending His helping hands for them in different ways in their lives,” said Evangelist Haseeb, a C4C member and the foun...

Mission: Ararat 2014

PRAY: For workers to bring in the harvest in Turkey, a country that is reportedly 97 percent Muslim – the majority of which is unreached.

Turkish and Kurdish believers probably numbered around 10 in 1960. This number rose to around 4,000 by 2010, according to Operation World.
