Hi, we (John and Sally) have been working alongside those struggling with addictive habits. Our passion comes out of our own lives, where we both experienced times of addictive pain and personally know the long road to freedom.
In the US our charity is LIFOC and our work is international. We are based in the UK as missionaries and co-founders of Free! Recovery. We see a great need. There are people in every community who are trapped and do not know where to turn. What if there was a local group in their local church/local cafe/local community where they could begin the road towards freedom?
We are different; We are people of faith. The Bible contains such great insight and maps out a genuine path to freedom. We have both this freedom for life! People who have walked through our doors have also discovered this freedom.
Our Vision: Creating compassionate safe places for those struggling with addictions and life-controlling issues to explore and find freedom in Christ.
Free! Recovery is raising funds to provide materials to increase and resource a package for use in local churches. These will help provide many more places where people can find community, wisdom and practical support. Since Covid-19, mental health issues have been a significant problem. It is also not easy to find the necessary help. We want to be a part of helping local churches set up support groups and increase our geographical reach.
The funding will be for for a very significant life-changing project:
a) filming and production of our 10 sessions
b) accompanying participant and leader's guides
c) promotion and networking
