“Made it to Doha, Qatar! Flight was smooth and I was thankful to have an aisle seat with no one next to me! I was able to get some sleep. We have a 9 hour layover! All the climbers are sitting in a lounge checking using the free wifi to check their email, texting and posting to Facebook. Thanks for all your prayers!!!! Love, Shelly” – Shelly Ginter Conrad, Freedom Climber from the U.S.
