Throughout history, there have been men and women who were willing to sacrifice their lives rather than compromise their faith. The Freedom Singers’ story is one that will inspire you with a fresh, modern day picture of faith in a God that is still in control of a world gone mad.

Simon Ivascu, Steven Ivascu and Wesley Pop, fled Romania when they were only teenagers. In Romania, their native land, at that time, all young men, upon completing High School, were forced to join the army. Being conscientious Christians, they could not join the army because freedom of worship was totally restricted. Refusing to join would result in several years of imprisonment and persecution.

Determined to escape to freedom, they all faced danger and hardships fleeing from Romania to Italy, but Simon and Wesley’s nightmare began in earnest when they crawled into a container, were then locked and sealed, and placed aboard a container vessel. There they spent two weeks in total darkness as they baked in the heat for days before being loaded onto the ship, headed to unknown destination. They ran out of food, water, oxygen and hope. As despair filled that container. It appeared that the container became their likely tomb; Once again, God provided another of many miracles in this incredible real life story of faith and perseverance in the face of insurmountable odds. This trio has been singing since their days in Italy shortly after fleeing Romania. Simon recalls, “We were singing mostly hymns together, back when we were in Italy, but we started to sing Southern Gospel Music in 2000, after we heard the Gaither’s and the Cathedrals on television. It was a sound that we instantly fell in love with. After singing at local churches and telling our story, it was suggested to actually give our group a name the “Freedom Singers.” This would be the most appropriate name considering the backgrounds of the guys. So in 2001, the “Freedom Singers” was officially born.

Simon goes on to say that, “We’ve been blessed beyond our imagination in so many ways. From the opportunity of sharing our music and testimony in churches big and small, to performing at the largest annual Canadian Gospel Convention in Red Deer and doing radio and TV interviews to being a guest artist on a Christian Music cruise.” The coming year brings even more exciting opportunities to the Freedom Singers as they are scheduled to travel across the United States and Canada.

FREEDOM SINGERS share their music and testimony in the hope that those who listen will be spiritually enriched and blessed. They give praise to God for His guidance and abundant Grace.

The Price Of Freedom

“Pas cu Pas.” In the Romanian language “pas cu pas” means “step by step.” This phrase is an apt description of how God guided and protected Simon and Wesley in their bold physical and spiritual journey from Romania to Canada.

It has been our privilege to personally become well acquainted with Simon and Wesley. Their remarkable story and profound witness has inspired our lives and blessed our family. As you read this book it is our prayer you will discover a God who is intimately interested in your life. The Price of Freedom will strengthen your faith and we dare say, make you bolder in your “pas cu pas” – “step by step” journey!

Special Package

In the pages of The Price of Freedom you will read a remarkable story of adventure, courage, mistakes and miracles. You’ll thrill to see how in spite of incredible odds, God led these two young men to freedom. From fearful nights as escaping fugitives to long days as “cargo” on the high seas; from police prisons to “container” prisons, and from the status of illegal aliens to that of honourable citizens, this tale will reveal the power and love of God, and will grip you from first page to last. Through mistakes, set-backs, and steel prisons opened with little more than their bare hands, these two young men discovered a God who never lets go and who gives hope and courage when life is at its darkest.

In this special package you receive the book and three Cds for one low price.
