Women's Day: How Marilyn Hickey's Daughter Is Continuing Moses' Legacy

With a burden for babies and young children in need, Sarah Bowling founded Saving Moses, a nonprofit focused on some of most desperate places in the world, in 2011. Bowling—perhaps best known as co-host with her mother, Marilyn Hickey, of the daily TV show Today With Marilyn and Sarah—is also a senior pastor with her husband, Reece, at Orchard Road Christian Center in Denver.

The name Saving Moses harks back to the Old Testament when God protected Moses as an infant. The organization serves children 0-5 years old "where the need is most urgent and the care is least available," Bowling says.

Saving Moses specializes in malnutrition feeding and night care for the children of sex workers in countries such as Angola and Bangladesh. Night care prevents children from being molested as their mothers work in prostitution.

"I don't think there's a human on the planet who is more least of the least than the baby of a sex worker," Bowling says, referring to Jesus' call to serve "the least of these."

Saving Moses also works in rural Afghanistan with safe birthing, deliveries and immunizations, and in Syria with nourishment support.

When she's not traveling internationally, she ministers through her TV program and at Orchard Road.

"I minister a couple times a month, totally love it, totally believe in the local church."
