Mission Moments: Nepal

Church completed in Kathmandu Kindly rejoice with us for what our Almighty God the Father has given us as special gift: a sanctuary to worship Him in spirit and truth. We are the body of Christ, Son of the Living God. He answered our prayer and gave us this beautiful church sanctuary to meet with Jesus and have wonderful fellowship with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. You can look at this house of God and inner sanctuary, where saints are gladly worshiping God. On behalf of my family and believers of SARA (Savior Alone Reaches Asians), I would like to thank God and Cli... Read more »

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. For more than 1,000 years this region was the heart of Christianity, but it later became a stronghold of Islam. The Christian population declined from 22 percent to 0.21 percent after 1900. Turkish and Kurdish believers probably numbered around 10 in 1960. This number rose to around 4,000 by 2010, according to Operation World. GIVE: To the start of work among the Kurdish people in eastern Turkey. Send donations to Climbing For Christ, c/o Mission: Ara... Read more »

Mission Moments: Nepal

CHRISTmas in Kathmandu The main Savior Alone Reaches Asians (SARA) church in Kathmandu, Nepal met to worship in their new building for the first time on Christmas Day. About 150 people attended. “It was great because several new people came and three of them accepted Christ in their life for the first time,” said Pastor Tej Rokka, the founder of SARA and a long-time Climbing For Christ member. Pastor Tej welcomes us to the new SARA church in Kathmandu. “I was so excited because for the first time in SARA church history we were having a CHRISTmas celebration in our o... Read more »

Mission Moments: Pakistan

CHRISTmas delivery of God’s precious Word Climbing For Christ was blessed to provide funding for the purchase of 70 Urdu-language Bibles for distribution on CHRISTmas by partner ministry Save Pakistan. “Many believers in Pakistan long to be able to read God’s Word daily, to learn and grow by its instruction and encouragement,” said Save Pakistan founder Haseeb Masih (in photo), who delivered Bibles in a program in the city of Sangla Hill in the Punjab Province. “Access to Bibles, however, is out of reach for most people, most often due to crippling poverty.

Mission Moments: Nepal

Building the church at Kathmandu The main church for Savior Alone Reaches Asians (SARA) and future home to Climbing For Christ in Nepal continues to go up in Kathmandu. “We are thankful to God, C4C and givers so far,” Pastor Tej Rokka, founder of SARA (in photo above), said Tuesday, Dec. 10. “But work has not yet finished; it is still underway. We still need 15,000 US dollars to complete this church. We have not stopped working and bringing materials on credit, and labors are paid half so far, because our challenge is to complete it by Dec. 25 and have CHRISTmas c... Read more »

Pakistan Trek

Pakistan has within its borders some of the world’s highest and most spectacular mountains. Some of the famous mountain ranges of Pakistan are Himalayas, Karakoram, Hindu Kush, Sulaiman, Toba Kakar, Kirthar and Salt range. Millions of people live in the mountains of Pakistan. This could be a 2014 expedition. We have been waiting on the Lord for His timing and open doors through which we will boldly walk. E-mail info@ClimbingForChrist.org if you are interested in trekking in Pakistan. In the meantime, Climbing For Christ is praying for and financially helping (... Read more »

Mission: Possible

The goal for hiking in North America is to “leave no trace.” However, that is not the plan for Mission: Possible 2013. We will go back and find the footprints that Jesus has been leaving in our friends’ hearts since our previous trip, and then make new footprints farther into areas in the “Valley” previously untracked. Date: To be determined. Length of trip: 14 days. Team size: 4-6 people. Purpose: Return to the Valley (located between 14,000 and 16,000 feet and inhabited by nomadic people) and visit our friends from previous trips. Continue ... Read more »

Mission Moments: NEPAL

Building a foundation with Christ as the cornerstone Land was located more than a year ago and prayers lifted that it would be the future site of the church at Kathmandu. For months those prayers were specifically directed at the ongoing work to get approval from city government to build. Finally in November, construction began on a central house of worship for our Nepal ministry partner SARA (Savior Alone Reaches Asians). Pastor Tej prays for the work on the church at Kathmandu. Pastor Tej, the founder of SARA ministries and a Climbing For Christ member since 2009, has wa... Read more »

DISPATCHES: Nepal (Sept.-Oct. 2013)

By Gary Fallesen Climbing For Christ Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013 Team members safely returned to the States this evening, marking the end of this short-term expedition. More to come. “Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised in the city of our God! His holy mountain, beautiful in elevation, is the joy of all the earth...” – Psalm 48:1-2 (ESV) Friday, Oct. 4, 2013 The remaining team members parted ways – with Celeste, Jordan and me starting to fly back to the States and Alyssa and Nick staying on in Nepal – after seeing Pastor Tej briefly in the afternoon...

Pakistan: more violence against Christians

Protesting violence against Christians in Pakistan Save Pakistan, which was founded by a Climbing For Christ member, joined a series of nationwide rallies protesting violence against Christians in Pakistan. Evangelist Haseeb said hundreds participated in the peaceful protest in Faisalabad on Sept. 24. The group took to the streets to condemn a church bombing in northwestern Pakistan that killed more than 80 people and injured countless others on Sept. 22. “We have recorded our protest to the media and ask the government of Pakistan to provide security to our Christian community ...

HIStory: Nepal

A letter to Climbing For Christ Dear family: Greetings in Jesus' name! There are so many things to praise God about. He is so good to us and He has brought many blessings through Climbing For Christ (C4C). I can proudly say that all that has  happened and is happening in Nepal is not by man's might but by His might and Spirit. Miraculously, God introduced C4C to me in 2008 and since then we began to pray and work together to reach out to the lost of Nepal. By God's grace C4C helped us build a church in Dapcha Kavre, where God's people are worshiping with gladness. That is wh... Read more »

Mission: Ararat 2013 Trip Report

Sharing Christ's love with a smile By Gary Fallesen President, Climbing For Christ Her father watched as she hiked out of Base Camp with the rest of the Mission: Ararat team, heading toward High Camp and ultimately the 16,854-foot summit of Mount Ararat. God had given him peace about letting his 19-year-old daughter go on without him. Only the day before the old man had shared with the team and then the rest of the Climbing For Christ world the message: “It’s about the mission, not the summit.” He had work to do at the lower elevations – around the 11,000-foot ...

A day in the life of ministry

Monday, Aug. 19, 2013 (Photo from missionary Miguel Rubén Guante) HAITI: It was the first day of classes for about 50 students attending the Monte Pou Kris (Climbing For Christ in Haitian Creole) school in the Dominican border town of Jimani. Because of budget cuts, C4C is supporting only the Jimani and Malasi schools in 2013-2014. We are attempting to raise US$1,000 support to construct a roof for the fledgling church and school in Mare Pitre. Another ministry can pay the teachers there if we can manage to put up a temporary structure to house school children during the week a... Read more »

DISPATCHES: Ararat

By Gary Fallesen Founding president, Climbing For Christ Mission: Ararat Prayer Calendar Monday, Aug. 5 There is a Kurdish proverb, “Sam seker wilat serintie e.,” which means “Damascus is sweet, but one's country is even sweeter.” In other words, there is no place like home. Our Mission: Ararat 2013 team members have returned to their respective homes, giving thanks and praising God. Sunday, Aug. 4 Our team has begun flying back to the States after saying goodbyes in the afternoon to guides-turned-friends Adem and Behzat. There was some unrest outside our... Read more »

Ararat 2013: A personal reflection

It's about the mission, not the summit By Gary Fallesen Founding president, Climbing For Christ “Mission, not mountain. “People, not peak. “Service, not summit.” As I limped up 3,700 vertical feet to Base Camp on the first day of our Mission: Ararat climb – “remember, Gary, this is the easy walk,” guide Adem said – I thought about my leg injury, our last climb here, and Climbing For Christ's purpose. Why would I pull a thigh muscle 10 days before an Evangelical Expedition? Why indeed. On the flight from the United States to Turk... Read more »

Pakistan

“Please encourage our efforts to spread the Gospel in the hardest part of the world — the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.” These words came from a pastor who joined Climbing For Christ in 2008. We hear stories daily about terrorism, bombings, murder, kidnapping, and harassment. Particularly at risk are ambassadors for Christ. “Discrimination affects virtually every aspect of daily life such as education, health, livelihood and housing,” according to Open Doors USA, which adds: “Opening a new church building is almost impossible.” Open Doors has ...

Mission Moments: Pakistan (May 29, 2013)

Schooling the spiritually poor By Gary Fallesen Climbing For Christ president Christian children in Pakistan come from poor families or are orphans living with relatives and they are unable to help themselves. They cannot afford to go to school and they have no idea why they are among the persecuted. Their existence has been described by another ministry as “living below the spiritual poverty line.” But Jesus blesses the persecuted (Matthew 5:10) and God counts the tears of His children (Psalm 56:8). We believe this is why He gave our brother in Christ, Evangelist Najeeb, the ... Read more »

Mission Moments: Pakistan (May 23, 2013)

Building His church “…and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” – Matthew 16:18 (ESV) God is using Climbing For Christ to build churches in Chalhua, Peru; Jimani, Dominican Republic; Mare Pitre, Haiti, and Kathmandu, Nepal. We have asked for support – prayerful and financial – for these projects. We are adding another: Faisalabad, Pakistan. “As I was praying to the Lord for a church building, (the) Lord showed me a piece of land, which is in beautiful area where our congregation could jo...

DISPATCHES: Nepal (May 2013)

By Gary Fallesen Climbing For Christ president “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:8-9 (ESV) It seemed a clear directive. Ask for funding to GO to Nepal and receive more than enough funding to GO to Nepal. [See E-Newsletter 222.] This was God’s plan, right? And then the usual spiritual attacks set in, including illness. No worries. We’ve been this way before. But in the hours ... Read more »
