Matthew Freeman: The Mission Continues
New Playground To Honor Matthew
On the 4th anniversary of his death, the Richmond Hill United Methodist Church is honoring Matt’s memory by naming their new playground currently under development after our own hometown hero. From the trustees of the United Methodist Church: ” Matthew Freeman had a heart for children. He reached out, in Christ’s love, to the children of Afghanistan and recognized the need for facilitating education through the mission of donating school supplies. To honor his heart for the needs of children we would like to name the children’s playground after Capt. Matthew Freeman.”
The Freeman Project and Matt’s family are very touched to have Matthew’s childhood church honor Matt in such a dynamic way. Matt’s heart was indeed for children. We embrace the development of the playground to benefit the children of the church and its after school program wholeheartedly and with prayers and blessings thank everyone at the church and in the community for remembering Matt and his life. Please visit the (link) at Richmond Hill United Methodist to contribute to the success of the playground. The Freeman Project is also making a donation.

Matthew’s Last Journal Entry, 8/02/2009
Mom, Dad, I can never repay you for all you have done for me. You made me into the man I am today. I hope that I have made you proud. That has always been my goal. I love you both so much. Tell the girls that I love them and couldn’t be a prouder older brother. I have always tried to be an honorable man and I truly believe in what we are doing here. I am doing this for my family; so that they need not fear, My country, so that it can be a beacon of light for the entire world; the men around me, because no one could ask for a more august company than the men of the US Armed Forces and finally I do this for myself so that I might know the measure of myself and in the end not be found wanting. I believe that it is my duty to fight and having done all that I can to simply stand against this and all the evil works upon this Earth.
