Tropical Cyclone Freddy’s updates
Tropical Cyclone Freddy devastated an already reeling – constantly hurting – southern Malawi, where Kingdom worker Damson Samson and ministry partner Pastor Duncan Nyozani live.

On Feb. 6, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck southeastern Turkey in the pre-dawn hours. Parts of Turkey and Syria were devastated. Loss of life was enormous. We are praying for the people there, especially those who are part of the Climbing For Christ family. We will post updates here.
