In Afghanistan the Russians were defeated by mountain people who took refuge and lived on them. Our Lord Jesus will return on the Moumt of Olives and it will be split and the remnent of his own will pass through
Amen! scripture declares that the Mountains and Hills will bow down before him.
My first encounter with them was when I was serving in Korea. For you to be up one when the dawn breaks is a wonderful sight. As the sun warms the valley floor and the mist rises gives you a feeling of elation. One that will be remembered for a while.

There is a sense of them being well rooted! a rock solid foundation! Everest has a drawing power that has called the best of climbers. Some to their deaths and yet they still come to the challenge of a Mountain.
