Perhaps their culture and language help, with age-old expressions like, "Haere noa!" — "Keep on going!" and "A rohi!" — "Ever onward!" And for this trip at least, some strength must come from generations of climbing their own tropical hill, dubbed "Comorah," back on the island of Tahaa, where their ward chapel was built more than 35 years ago.
