1. The physical condition of our Nepal expedition team will play a significant role in our success. This past month I was able to do some high altitude trail running on some of the many old mine trails and jeep roads high in the backcountry of Southwest Colorado.

  2. 60 years ago two very different men became one of the most famous duos on earth when they stood for the first time on the highest mountain in the world. For Tenzing Norgay, a Nepali native, the mountain was known as Sagarmatha. For Edmund Hillary, the Westerner from New Zealand, it was know as Mount Everest.

    These men came from drastically different cultures and viewed the mountain from drastically different worldviews. But for both, the mountain represented an idol, an icon of worship which to this day holds a tight and powerful hold on cultures around the world.

    We are taking a team which has been commissioned by the Hazardous Journeys Society to go deep into the Himalayas to tell the story of Nepal, its people, and the mountain that casts a great shadow of influence everywhere it penetrates. In going to this land of beauty and mystery, we hope to expose the faulty foundations of vain religions of men and replace them with the Hope of the Gospel of Christ.

    Our team has three main goals:

    MISSION ONE: Tear Down the Idols of Mountain Worship and Extreme “Adrenaline” Sports

    Mt. Everest represents the ultimate modern day adventure challenge for man, but Christians overlook the magnitude of its influence on cultures around the world. The natives worship the mountain as a goddess while Westerners and climbers idolize it for the self aggrandizement and prestige it brings them.
    During this 60th anniversary year of the first ever ascent of Everest and the 50th anniversary of an American’s first ascent, the Everest region will be teaming with some of the most influential people in the climbing community from all around the world. And, our team will be there to engage them with the truth of the One God, and the joy of finding satisfaction in Him.

    While expedition leaders are preparing their teams for one of the most challenging and deadly climbs on earth, we will be taking a stand against idolatry and proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Sherpas, trekkers and climbers in the valley. This is a pivotal anniversary year to put our team on the ground and to influence some of the most renowned expeditionary enthusiasts and climbers from around the world whom intern have the most far reaching influence in the climbing industry.

    MISSION TWO: A Defense of Biblical Creationism and the Genesis Account of Origins from the Top of the World

    We may well be the very first team of creationists to attempt such a mission on what is surely the greatest mountain testimony to Flood Geology in the world. While traveling to the mountain, we will distribute tracts, and explain the reasons why fossils can be found at the summit and its awesome testimony to the fact that the mountain itself is a result of the Biblical flood of Noah’s day – a demonstration of God’s judgment against sin, and His mercy towards those who obey. The rocks at the top of the world cry out, reminding us of the accuracy of God’s Word and the need for all men to turn their eyes and their hearts to their Creator.

    MISSION THREE: Bring the Story of the Nepalis to America and the Message of Jesus Christ to the Lost

    Nepal is a dark, mystical, gospel-barren land with only 1.4% of it’s population claiming to be Christian. It has only been open to the Gospel since 1991 and believers are often persecuted by their own families and their communities. There is though, great evidence of a hunger for the Word of God and church growth taking place. We aim to bring copies of God’s word to the various villages and document the missions work being done there, as well as interview villagers, church members and real families. Our goal is to tell their story to Christians in the Western world. And, we hope to lay foundations for future Gospel evangelism to the people who live in the shadow of Everest.

    Partner with Us

    Would you help us accomplish this strategic mission? We believe this mission has great gospel significance and dominion work for Jesus Christ. This anniversary year will afford exposure and proximity to leading climbing enthusiasts from around the world. We want to confront their vain idolatries and refute the evolutionary model which helps perpetuate the overt denial of our Sovereign God. To accomplish this mission, we need your support. We need financial assistance to fund this gospel opportunity with the necessary travel resource, safety, and recording equipment, print materials, and Bibles for our goals. Your financial gift will help to tear down the strongholds of paganism in one of the most remote yet highly influential areas of creation - so that all who would look upon the Himalayas would be prompted echo the words from Psalm 8: “O Lord, our Lord...What is man, that thou art mindful of him?” Will you help us?
