I’ll be working with a team that uses outdoor sports such as rock climbing and hiking to mobilize and support long-term work to see isolated mountain minorities become reached.
During the summer season, most of our time will be spent leading groups in mountain areas. These groups are mainly churches that have adopted specific villages or peoples and have committed to reaching these areas.
The rest of the year will be spent traveling once a month to the mountains to establish new and strengthen existing relationships and routes. This may look like finding new hiking trails, people to stay with or even places to eat.
My time in the city will mainly be learning the language and developing relationships. Others on my team teach English and volunteer at a climbing wall. My team is currently trying to establish a new community center to engage the local community in an active way. The main focus during the offseason is to learn the language and build relationships.
- Pray for the unreached mountain peoples we will be engaging.
- Pray for the safety of the team as we travel in these mountainous areas.
