Climb for Captives Makes it to the Top of Mt. Raineer

"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."
Edmund Burke

We all waited with eager expectation.

Seven men headed towards the top of Mt. Raineer with two goals in mind: to reach the summit and to celebrate an athletic feat that is admired by everyone who hears, but an even more important goal of freeing 18 woman enslaved by sex trafficking. Climb for Captives is partnering with International Justice Mission to accomplish this.

One of the men, Kjel, had climbed Mt. Raineer just a couple of month earlier. The weather conditions, the route, the technical difficulty were much greater than the climb that took place last weekend.

It is apparent that God climbed the mountain before the climbers from Climb for Captives came up because the weather was spectular, the route was direct and not technical, and the cooperation of the 7 was all in synergy.

We congratulate this team of seven for combining a passion for climbing with a missio purpose! This is what God does when he wants to not only please us but bring justice into the world he created.

Don't stop reading now! Take a moment to go to and make a donation! If everyone gives a little, lives will be transformed and the kingdom expanded! Remember the quote from Edmund Burke: "All that is required for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing."
