TAMMY RISTAU — This is not like hiking in Michigan, we were walking up and down steep trails in the Usambara mountains. I slipped and fell 3 times one day, but got up, laughed at myself, and continued trekking.
COLLIN SHARPE — As the days passed, it became clearer that funerals in rural Tanzania are a product of something far more profound in Tanzanian culture: an emphasis on recognizing, respecting, and caring for each individual.

EMILY VANHAITSMA – We adjusted to the altitude together, bargained in the markets together, and hiked up mountains we thought were impossible to climb.
