Sharing God’s love story on Mission: Kilimanjaro
“It was exhilarating to be able to GO again after being grounded from international travel for almost a year,” Climbing For Christ's Elaine Fallesen observed after Mission: Kilimanjaro 2021 was carried out from June 22 to July 8. DMD training with guides, porters, and their wives; delivering COVID-19 relief; climbing Mount Meru, and much more.
Ascending into chaos
Haiti is synonymous with crisis. Lawlessness (kidnapping, carjacking, armed robbery, gang violence), a dysfunctional government, civil unrest, fuel and food shortages, and rampant COVID-19 already had Haiti tagged “Level 4: Do Not Travel” for outsiders and was a hellhole for its population of 11-million-plus. Chaos would be a step up in Haiti. But our work goes on.
We return to Tanzania to continue DMD training of guides and porters in the Kilimanjaro Chapter. A trek on Mount Meru also is planned.
30 days of breath prayers for the Muslim world
We are applying the practice of breathing a simple prayer each day to Project Prayer: Ramadan 2021. We ask you to whisper this prayer throughout the day with a Muslim person, people, group, nation, or the entire Islamic world in mind. Pray on!
Raising relief funds for those hurting
Climbing For Christ has distributed more than $74,000 in COVID-19 relief. The need for more relief is again growing. A Climbing For Christ member has offered to match up to $20,000 in donations to COVID relief!
Asking Jesus to appear to Muslims as part of Project Prayer: Ramadan 2021
Let’s cut to the chase – want to know the BEST way to pray for our Muslim friends and family to come to Christ? Ask Jesus to appear to them in a dream or a vision.
A loo with a view
Toilet, water closet, baño, loo, squatty, privy, latrine. Everyone needs a place to “go,” and too often in the mountains of Haiti that place is wherever you happen to be when so moved. Imagine schools in four villages with more than 400 students and no bathroom facilities. Messy. Not any more, thanks to latrines built by C4C's New Generation.
