Mission: Kilimanjaro 2023

Discovering the Bible

Gary Fallesen 0 1261

Climbing For Christ has come a long way from its birth by God in the heart of Gary Fallesen before a Kilimanjaro climb in 1998. Guides and porters do more than work on Mount Kilimanjaro now. They are disciples being taught to make disciples and plant churches in East Africa. We are celebrating the 25th anniversary of Gary’s first climb and teaching Kilimanjaro Chapter members more about “Discovering the Bible.”

We are returning to the scene of the climb, a trek in the northern reaches of the Cordillera Blanca we visited in 2015. We had planned to GO there in 2022, but that was not God's plan (Proverbs 16:9). Mission: Peru 2022 was rescheduled for 2023 because of serious illnesses in the family of our national worker.

Ticket to Paradise

Focuing on serving a Muslim porter rather than pursuing the summit of Mount Rinjani in 2012 changed the way our Indonesia leader looked at doing ministry. It opened his eyes to an opportunity that gives him a reason to be there. This business-as-ministry vision was helped by a late brother in Christ whose legacy gift to C4C is turning a dream into a reality.
