She’s a woman on a mission – not to move mountains, but to climb them.

And not just any mountain, we’re talking about Mount Kilimanjaro.

Pastor Sylvia Tisdale is a pastor from Pensacola.

The Christian woman is 70 years old and has been training two hours a day for the past five months to make the trek.

But why?

She hopes her climb will raise money for and bring awareness to hunger and food insecurity.

The pastor runs a soup kitchen and food distribution center, which is why the mission is so close to her heart.

And the countdown is on – she’ll step off next month.
