The 4997 project – into the Himalayas

This remote Himalayan country has many unreached people groups. Millions are untouched by the transformational impact of the gospel. We are working hard to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers among these least reached, and invite you to become part of this.

Join us for The 4997 project. Put your faith in action and climb up to a 4997 metre Himalayan peak for the least reached! Experience OM’s ministry in a Himalayan region first-hand, increase your awareness and raise finances for the work of OM among those that have never heard of Jesus. Each trekker is expected to raise funds; our aim as a trekking team is to raise £15,000 towards the work of OM in the Himalayas among those that have never heard of Jesus.

Fly into the capital city and stay at our Training Centre. Visit the team members that are working amongst unreached people groups before travelling north. While climbing a 4997m mountain you will learn about Hinduism and Buddhism, and pray for unreached people groups. Be part of the work we do in the remote villages, see earthquake relief projects and meet our Himalayan ‘Social Mobilisers’. Experienced team members will accompany you on this trip.
