Last steps up


Made it to the top!!!

 

To all those who have prayed and encouraged me on this journey I am grateful. I felt every prayer with every step and when I didn’t think I could walk one more step your prayers made it possible. I have so much to tell, the journey was way more than I ever thought. I am just beginning to process it right now, it is going to take awhile for me to get my thoughts in order. I am spending a day recovering, my muscles are fatigued, they are spent. It was an extreme physical, emotional and spiritual trip all three combined into one. It was equally demanding in each arena of my life. One thing for sure I will never be the same. So in a few days I will began to post more of my reflections but for now I wanted you to know that I am grateful for my friends. Walker Moore

On the way up

They are getting higher and higher!!

The girl wanted to help, it’s amazing those getting involved.

The text from Walker says: The cross has taken a life of its own. People from all over the world have asked about the cross. Porters from the Tanzania churches have asked if they could join us in taking the cross to the top. Today walked to 15000 feet to prepare for the summit. Sleeping at 13,200. 

He said they have two tough days ahead climbing the Barancho wall and then the summit at midnight. All are doing ok.

you might have to copy this and put it  into your computer.

Strange as it may sound, Kilimanjaro is perhaps one of the most dangerous mountains in the world.

Altitude presents humans with a host of problems. On Kili the combination of cold 0 degrees, dehydration and acute mountain sickness seems to be responsible for turning most people back. 

Lighting strike killed one person earlier this year.
