I owe the success of my summit of Uhuru Peak to Peter Mato, our incredible guide. He grew up on this slope of the mountain, and knows the nature, animals, and culture well. He knows the secret to the success of the group is avoiding any anxiety. His Swahili singing established the pole pole rest step 7 hours straight from Kibo Hut. I got as high as I've ever been to heaven, 19,340 ft. to pray for Shane Bowers, our foster son who is fighting cancer.
