Double leg amputee reaches Everest summit after one of his limbs snaps in a fall.
Through the years Jerry and I have been intensely involved in church work, so of course I have worked closely with many people. Their differing reactions to circumstances has never failed to amaze me.
Mark Inglis's story of conquering Mt. Everest, after losing both of his legs to frostbite is an incredible story. It underscores my observation that some people will persevere and subsequently succeed no matter what physical challenges they face. If their car stalls, they will find a ride, if they lose their job, they will find another, if an accident befalls them, they will heal the wound, if they falter and lose their way, they will straighten themselves, grapple for a new handhold…and keep climbing.
