The Freedom Climb Team
Will you join and be one of the first 100 Founding Freedom Circle members?
We climb to combat slavery, exploitation and trafficking of women and children globally. And we are passionately dedicated to seeing these wrongs corrected, and lives restored to wholeness. But this is a big mountain, a steep path ahead. We can’t climb it alone — will you join us?
Until now, the way to get involved was to climb or support a climber. And we are so grateful to you and the thousands who have joined us in these ways, raising over one million dollars to fund OM projects around the world that address these very issues. Glory to God!
To expand the impact of The Freedom Climb, to help more women and children, we are looking for the first 100 Founding Members of The Freedom Circle, a new level of influence in the global climb to freedom. Will you step up? You will make a difference, and you’ll draw others along with you.
Join our circle today at: http://www.thefreedomclimb.net/get-involved/the-freedom-circle
Many Blessings to you and your family!

This week a few of our climbers from the 2015 Corporate Climb Sponsored by The Wasie Foundation joined together to train for their climb on Mt. Kilimanjaro. Several climbers said it was the most difficult thing they have ever done. This is said after each climb as well. So WHY do we climb? Why do we endure the difficulty of climbing? We are blessed to be a voice for those with no voice! Those we are climbing for have an incredible climb to freedom. We climb because it is our goal to raise awareness and funds for the projects Operation Mobilization has around the world that are addressing issues of slavery and oppression. Learn more about our WHY!

It is so much more than a climb! You don’t have to climb to join our team! Will you join us in prayer for the precious lives transformed by the Freedom Climb projects?

The Freedom Climb supports projects in Moldova that are giving hope and a future to women and children at risk. Last week I was blessed to be able to take a team of leaders from Mission Hills Church in Colorado to visit Moldova and see first hand the amazing work being done by OM Moldova. We visited many places and saw the joy being brought to orphans and abandoned children as they learn what it means to be loved and to have hope.
Did you know there are approximately 4 million people in Moldova? Many parents leave their children with others or alone as they travel abroad seeking work due to the extreme poverty. One third of children in Moldova are social orphans, often times 8-9 year olds live alone. Although huge orphanages have been created, this is not enough to help these precious children. They are extremely vulnerable to human trafficking. It was said that Moldova is #6 in world for human trafficking. Those statistics reflect that it is in a worst state than Cambodia or Thailand. Many children are lured and sold to Turkey, Romania, Germany and Austria.
OM Moldova has 18 care centers for children at risk. At these centers, many of the children receive the only meal they will eat that day. They learn about Jesus, are treated with love and compassion and are given educational assistance. There is a need for many more centers. Most of the centers are used as churches in the villages.
The picture you see is of a center and church in one of the villages. This center provides the only well with safe drinking water in the village of 400 people. The building is modest as is, but the ceiling is filled with mold and needs to be replaced. As I stood looking at the roof it broke my heart to think that if it isn’t replaced, the building will be condemned and the children will have no where to go and no hot meal. I was blessed to be able to say “The Freedom Climb will give you the funds to replace the roof.”
It is because of passionate people around the world helping to raise funds and awareness that we are able to provide hope and a future to precious children like the ones cared for here.
Will you join us in our efforts to end human trafficking, exploitation of children and oppression?
Thank you for joining us in our efforts!
