See you at the Southpole

What striked me about extreme adventurers, Alex Harris and Sibusiso Vilane is the role of their faith in facing the extreme. These two just made history by walking unsupported and unassisted to the South Pole. These 2 christians also climbed Mount Everest twice, but achieved their latest feat, pulling their sleds alone, covering almost 1200 km in the most extreme weather conditions.

In their interviews, they would remind us that this achievement was at the core possible because they were drawing from their physical and spiritual strength. They've made South Africa proud and reminds us of the pool all of us can draws on to face and overcome insurmountable odds and seemingly impossible challenges. Thanks to these overcomers!
