The next time anyone tells you that you can’t do something, remind him or her that with God, all things are possible... then tell them Elisha’s incredible story! Eli Reimer has Down syndrome. He’s already an amazing teen, but he accomplished something most adults can only dream of: two years ago, at the age of 15, Eli climbed Mount Everest! This young man walked 17,600 feet up the side of this huge mountain! In this amazing video of Eli’s trek up Mt. Everest, someone asks Eli, “Who gives you the strength to walk?” To which Eli joyfully replies, “God!” Indeed, the words of Habakkuk 3:18-19 are true for Eli: “I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he enables me to tread on the heights.” Whatever your limitations, trust that Jesus will give you the strength to climb up even the highest mountain!
