Life is hard. We pray and ask God to help, but many times it seems like he's not there. We know God can perform miracles, yet our problems often remain. Is God listening? Does God care?

Climbing Life's Mountains: From Mount Ararat, where God saved Noah and restarted civilization, to Mount Sinai, where God gave Moses the Ten Commandments, God has always used mountains to show himself to his people. This inspirational video illustration reminds us that we were meant to climb the mountains of life so that our faith can be made stronger, even through suffering.
