Praising Him in the storms
More homes built for Tropical Storm Ana victims even as another cyclone strikes southern Malawi causing widespread damage.

We will tell about “the amazing things He does” (1 Chronicles 16:24). His “glorious deeds” have included providing food and housing to widows in Malawi, setting free children who are slaves in brick factories in Pakistan, loving on orphans in Nepal, and more.
Dry lands to fertile mountain soil
The Kingdom of God has been expanded greatly on and around Mount Kilimanjaro. At first, “it was like a dry land where no hope was expected,” Damson Samson recalled. He met brothers in Christ who were going to church, “but not knowing the power of the Word.”
Now there is a disciple-making movement (DMM) occurring near Africa’s rooftop – and elsewhere in the Climbing For Christ world. Lives, communities, and churches have been transformed.
From porters to pastors
Our first quarterly training in 2022 of the Kilimanjaro Chapter resulted in highlights such as the conclusion of the advanced DMD study of our original class of 28 guides and porters, the continuation of training for the second class of 35 guides and porters, the leading of a half-dozen people to a relationship with Jesus during home visits, the restoration of some marriages and families, and healings for some enduring illness and bondage to sin.
Seeing the Light
Quarterly DMD training goes on with the Kilimanjaro Chapter guides and porters despite an outbreak of the omicron variant of COVID-19. Fear not; teach on! Kingdom worker Damson Samson of Malawi continues to teach disciple making and church planting to 63 members in Tanzania.

Training hits home for Kilimanjaro guides and porters
Sixty-three guides and porters in Climbing For Christ's Kilimanjaro Chapter study evangelism strategy and effective discipleship, while showing the impact they are having on their community and clients coming to Tanzania to climb thanks to DMD training.
Medical mission: Visible to God
Climbing For Christ’s New Generation (Haiti) conducted a medical mission to the mountain villages of Kalimet and Majon. “People were very happy to receive our work teams. They came in large numbers to wait for us. Everyone considered our presence there a miracle.” Most had never seen a doctor. Those who had told horror stories.
Oh, the places you’ll GO!
