Kilimanjaro update

John's got a bit of a stomach bug, and his team is hoping to summit Kilimanjaro today (early Saturday morning our time). I'm sad to report that one of his group of climbers had to descend due to extreme illness.
The remaining team would like to see the sun since they have yet to do so--in order to dry out their gear for safety's sake and enjoy some of the great views. But from John's brief call today, they sound encouraged and hopeful. Just before we hung up, I asked him if he was having fun. His answer: "I'm having a blast!" He is just loving it, virus or no virus.
Would you pray for this team today?
