Trusting God to be the Alpha and the Omega

Our 2015 Corporate Freedom Climb will be attempting to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro tomorrow. They’ll be climbing to the highest peak, appropriately named “Urhuru,” which means “freedom.”

The climbers are in good health and spirits, one of them commenting that “we are a family now. It’s God that bonded our hearts.”

The climb to Urhuru will be the most difficult trek so far, and the climbers are praying that everyone will summit. The hike is very steep, especially at the end. Today, they completed an acclimatization hike that helped them adjust to the altitude.

In the face of a very strenuous hike, the climbers are hopeful. As one of the climbers put it, they are trusting God to be not only the Alpha but also the Omega – to be the Finisher. They’re trusting that He will take them to the very end at the very top.

The team is staying strong physically and spiritually, remembering why they’re climbing:

“It has just been an amazing opportunity to be part of this. […] It’s just so humbling to think that we can be a part of such a greater cause, to bring glory and honor to our Savior,” said one climber.

Please be in prayer for our climbers, for safety and physical strength as they continue on and up. Also pray for the millions of people trafficked, exploited, and enslaved around the world, that God would loose the chains of bondage around them in this time. And trust that He is both the Alpha and the Omega, that He will finish what He began.
