The opportunity to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and raise money for Young Life Africa in Country X was presented to me through three of my friends and I jumped at the opportunity to join. Some of greatest and dearest friends here at UT have received the gift of eternal life because of the Lord's work in this ministry and the Young Life leaders who shared the gospel with them. I am beyond thrilled and humbled with the task of raising money for kids to hear the name of Jesus in Country X and support the leaders there.
I along with three friends have committed to raise 50 cents per foot we will climb to summit the tallest free standing mountain in the world; raising a total of $40,000 as a team. It is important to know that all of the money raised will go straight to mission of Young Life Africa, my team and I are not looking to fundraise any of our own expenses for this trip. This is an impossible task for four college students, however with the blessing of the Lord we know that anything is possible. We believe in the power of redemption Jesus Christ will bring to the souls of the people in this country.
