Our Mission: Peru and Mission: Possible 6 teams met in Los Angeles on Monday for a day of training today in preparation for these two Evangelic Expeditions. After enjoying dinner and fellowship Monday night, seven team members from three time zones in North America dug into the Word and teachings that will be applied to respective trips.

We opened with the first of two weeks of daily devotionals and prayer. We then watched Louie Giglio’s study “God’s Passion for God’s Glorification” before an extended C4C teaching on one of the world’s religions about to be encountered by the MP6 team. There was more sharing, prayer, singing (Tommy Walker’s “He Knows My Name” accompanied by the backpacker guitar), and In-N-Out Burger lunch.

Both teams have overnight flights out of the country and are eager to go and glorify His name. We have C4C members waiting in the respective destinations to help us deliver the Good News.

“For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.” — Romans 11:36


Jaime Jesus Servat of Huaraz, Peru has been a member of Climbing For Christ since 2006. He has waited patiently for C4C to send a short-term team to his country for an Evangelic Expedition. But he has not waited idly.

Jaime is an evangelist. On our Mission: Peru 2011 team bios page, he lists his occupation as “Missionary to South America.” No small order, but Jaime is up for the challenge. He’s already taken the Gospel into mountain villages in Peru and crossed the border into Colombia and Ecuador. 

He’ll be leading our group — which includes the “J-Team” (Jesse Fallesen, Jordan Rowley and Justin Rowley, all from Rochester, N.Y. USA) as well as Edwin Milla of Huaraz, Peru — into the Cordillera Blanca.

“God will move us to His people, who will have ears (to hear) and accept His call,” Jaime said about the mountain Quechua people we will encounter. Fewer than 2 percent of a population of about 379,000 are considered Christian, according to the Joshua Project.

“They will be blessed to receive a great spiritual and physical blessing with our team, which in His time will (occur),” Jaime added.

Jaime knows about God’s timing. “His time is running to favor our first Evangelic Expedition in South America,” he said last month.

His time has come for Jaime and C4C to deliver the Good News in Peru together.
