Mount Kilimanjaro: elevation 19,321 feet above sea level.
“The mountain is so high that when you are at the top and the sun is setting, the shadow cast by the mountain reaches the horizon.”
“When you are near the top of the mountain, you can see the curvature of the earth.”

I ask your prayers for the descent.
