Help End Slavery and Bring True Freedom!

Join our events or give to end slavery!
The 2014 Colorado Climb is fast-approaching on July 12-18, when our teams will summit 7 mountains – each over 14,000 ft. in elevation! Can you believe we have 72 women signed up, representing 6 different countries??

Help us count down to this incredible event and the impact it will have not only on our climbers, but on you as their supporters — and most powerfully — on women and children climbing their way to freedom out of abuse, oppression, slavery, and trafficking.

You are already making a life-changing difference for these women and children with the gifts you have made towards our $500,000 goal for the 7 Summits Climb. And any gift you can give today will mean even more women and children are reached with the hope of Jesus!

As our teams prepare for the climb, we also need your prayer support for the climbers and specific ministry needs. Please download our latest Freedom Climb Prayer Calendar and share this post with your friends so they can also!

We are so grateful for your ongoing involvement – whether you climb, gather sponsors, pray or give a gift. Your strength will enable suffering women and children to climb to freedom.

Blessings,
Tina Yeager, Director, Freedom Climb (USA)

OM leaders trek Mt. Kanabalu to be voices for the voiceless

Image

ILM  Mt. Kanabalu

A team of leaders just climbed Mt. Kinabalu in Malaysia after our OM leadership conference. Wow, was it hard! We had to remember quite often “WHY” we were climbing. We remembered the stories from several of our leaders throughout the week. Stories of a 12 year old little mute and deaf girl being chained and sold for sex by her grandmother, 40 children under 3 years old being rescued from a brothel where they were being sold for sex and many other stories just wrenched our hearts. They kept us motivated to finish!
Our video http://fundraise.omusa.org/site/R?i=IJh1H4mArtK4UsrpiLhl3Q shares some of the stories that keep The Freedom Climb motivated and encouraged to continue to be voices for the voiceless. Will you join us on this journey? Visit http://www.thefreedomclimb.net/events to join us for one of our upcoming events.
