40 days of a Pathway to a Global Vision - Mt. Kilimanjaro Trek


Mt. Kilimanjaro Trek

Participate in
40 Days of a Pathway to a Global 
starting on 
August 6th, 2015
as SAMS counts down to the Kilimanjaro summit!

SAMS “Pathway to a Global Vision” Kilimanjaro Trek is intended to be a high-profile event that raises awareness of SAMS on several levels, thereby increasing engagement and financial support for our work among numerous nations. The expedition will highlight the global vision of SAMS while inaugurating our 40th anniversary. This September, SAMS Chairman of the Board along with SAMS Mission Director and a small international team of missionaries and senders will be attempting to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, the “Rooftop of Africa", to bring awareness to SAMS’ global vision. The trek itself is projected to take nine days, climbing from the 7,550’ tropical rain forest to the frigid and barren Uhuru Summit at 19,340’. We hope you will follow (and share) our progress and pray with us for God’s provision and protection, and for His blessing on SAMS through this endeavor.

You can participate during SAMS Kilimanjaro Climb!

What We Do
