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. This is one of the poorest parts of one of the world’s poorest nations. Hunger is an almost constant companion. Now thousands are homeless, and hundreds are dead and missing after days of rain and floods.
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.
The Light on the mountain
Haiti was a desperate, uninviting place when we first went there in 2005. But it was bad long before we arrived, and it has gotten worse since. “Almost no missionaries are traveling to Haiti at present. The risk of kidnapping – the risk of simply driving past areas where gang snipers indiscriminately shoot an average of six victims a week – is too high.” Yet the work GOes on, thanks to Climbing For Christ’s New Generation – home-grown laborers.
Food for the soul
Madness in Migowi

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.
Answering the call
Paul wrote in his letter to the Ephesians, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago” (Ephesians 2:10). God has planned for guides and porters in Climbing For Christ’s Kilimanjaro Chapter to reach people with the Good News. People in their families, their communities, and in their path on Mount Kilimanjaro.
The royal priesthood of guides and porters
Kingdom worker Damson Samson shared with Kilimanjaro Chapter guides and porters about the overarching theme of Climbing For Christ: to reach the unreached, and to equip, encourage, and empower disciples to make more disciples of Jesus.
Praising Him in the storms
