IMLI Trip to Pakistan in May 2011
Donations of Ten Harnesses, Biners, ATCs, and Pairs of Rock Shoes Sought.
Calvin Landrus, SRCFC National Director, went on a trip with IMLI in summer of 2009 to establish climbing routes in the Ladakh region of India. So it is with pleasure and encouragement to join that we announce International Mountain Leadership Institute’s (IMLI) Trip to Pakistan. Jeremy Higle, IMLI’s Executive Director and SRCFC Member, looking for others to join the team on a ministry trip to Pakistan, May 9 to 28. The team will be doing a five-day training with guides from the Balti people and then about that same amount of time in ministry, discipleship and encouragement with the believers in the region. Team members will be teaching IMLI’s version of wilderness first aid, Leave No Trace, basic rock climbing and crevasse rescue (simulated on boulders). The total trip cost for team members will be approximately $4000. Some of the trips costs will be tax-deductible. If desired (and it’s recommended), one can take an extra trek or do a climb while in Pakistan (of course it will be at your own expense). For more specifics about the trip, contact Jeremy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, Jeremy desires to give each of the ten students a harness, biner, atc, and pair of rock shoes. If you have extra gear in new or excellent condition, please consider donating them. It will reduce the cost of the program and mean a lot to the students. Contact Jeremy directly if you have interest in donating gear.
ANOTHER TRIP BEING PLANNED TOO: IMLI is planning a similar trip described above to the Ladakh/Kashmir region of India in the fall of 2011. Contact Jeremy for more information on that as well.Date Posted - 03.11.11
