Mountain Climber Update

Just received notification from Arusha that all four hikers, Mike Rinker, Aaron Roach, Will Averett and Bob Wallace made it to the summit last night.  They have started their descent and should be back in Arusha by tomorrow midday. We are excited that they were able to reach the top!!

Here is a picture of the mountain and the routes, if you are interested.  They went the Marangu route.  Note that the elevations are all in meters not feet. Uhuru Peak is at 19,140 feet.

Thanks for all your prayers!!
