Huascaran

Climbing For Christ's missionary to Peru, Jaime Servat, was asked to pray about where God wanted us to go in his South American country in 2011. “We have many places,” Jaime answered, “but God put in my heart, first, go to the Churup Mountain and Lagoon Area (4,450 meters/14,600 feet). It would take a day to hike to acclimatize, doing outreach to people.” The trek would begin in a Llupa (at 3,650 meters/11,975 feet). “We have two different farmer churches there,” Jaime said.

“Second, we go to the Mancos town and I'll show you my land. It is placed at the side of the highway and we can stand there to see the front of the great Huascaran Mountain. After, we go to the Musho village, which is the route to make a trek or climb to Huascaran Mountain. Here, we have two different churches and there are possible projects to win a new people to Christ through the mountains from Musho.
 
“Third, we go to the Yanama District (3,375 meters/11,073 feet) in the Yungay Province of Ancash to the villages to minister to pastors living in poverty and win souls around the place. We have around there the Ulta, Pucarraju and Matarraju mountains. We could trek there, depending on our choice.”
 
Or, more accurately, depending on the Lord's leading.

Are you hearing Him call you to be a part of Climbing For Christ's first mission team to Peru?
