Winning souls and ministering to believers
Silvana Pizarro, who joined Climbing For Christ, was moved by God to come from her home in the Lima area to know more about His vineyard in Chalhua and beyond. We recognize that the harvest is ripe and the workers or few, so we rejoice in the willingness of this sister to serve in the Cordillera Blanca Range.
Silvana was a blessing to many – believers and those who came to the Lord – according to Jaime Servat, Climbing For Christ’s missionary to Peru. “Just when we entered the house of Alisson and her grandmother Teresa, they... Read more »
God's dream for the church at Chalhua
“On Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 3 a.m., I woke up after I had a special dream so strong that I was praying for it,” said Jaime Servat, Climbing For Christ’s missionary to Peru.
“I saw a check – it was pink-colored paper – in English written to C4C an amount of US$1,500. I could not see the bank seal and name. It really was burning my heart and I said, ‘Oh, Lord, if this is Your will then do it because here we need Your offering to complete Your prayer house.’ So praise God!
“The next morning I was che... Read more »
Blessed to bless believers

Climbing For Christ spiritual coordinator
Throughout Climbing For Christ’s third mission to the Cordillera Blanca range of the Peruvian Andes, I found myself thinking often of God’s love for the world, and His call to His Church to love others in the same way. During the days leading up to and throughout Mission: Peru 2013, the Lord put 1 John 3:16 in my mind and on my heart, “By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” We even discussed this verse e... Read more »
In May 2011, God sent a team of four from the United States to the Peruvian Andes Mountains. It was a family affair. The U.S. contingent was made up of father and son Gary and Jesse Fallesen, and brothers Jordan and Justin Rowley. This foursome was blessed to serve alongside many of our Climbing For Christ members from Peru. It was a joy for the Americans to get to know their Peruvian brothers, and to experience their passion for the Lord and the lost. Mission: Peru 2011 was essentially planned as a survey trip, and we learned very quickly that the fields in the remote mountains... Read more »

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 »
