It is through our physical challenges that we identify in a tangible way with the incredibly steep climb to freedom so many women and children have every day. Each challenge produces prayer and finances for over 20 projects in Africa, and awareness of the injustices taking place in the world.
TABLE MOUNTAIN CHALLENGE
In October 2015, 150 men, women, and children traveled to Cape Town to participate in the first climb in Africa that welcomed families, men, and women.
“I was challenged, ‘what can I do for these people?’ I cannot really solve any of their problems. And I realized this was a good way that we can raise awareness for people to know what is happening, to raise funds and to pray against this problem of human trafficking and slavery.”- Carlos Montanez (climber)
Each day brought the participants a new climb as they ventured three different mountains (Mont Rochelle, Jonkershoek, and Table Mountain) over three days.
Between each climb the participants heard messages and testimonies from guest speakers, updates from Freedom Challenge projects and were given multiple opportunities to pray into the injustices happening in the world.
