Tonight's the night! Kilimanjaro summit

John's team plans to wake in about half an hour--11 PM here in east Africa--to summit Kilimanjaro around sunrise! The highest point on the I'm pretty stinkin' proud, not to mention incredibly thankful and prayerful, too.

They will be climbing around 4000 feet tonight in an Arctic biozone--it's quite cold!--so the difficulty is certainly not over. But thus far, despite varying levels of altitude sickness and other small ailments, we've heard that the entire team is still climbing. I'm excited. We would love your prayers.

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
 For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth;
the heights of the mountains are his also.
Psalm 95:1-4
