….Woke up this morning and went to McDonald’s with Will, his wife Lindsey, Andrew, and some of their youth students for breakfast. We had a great fellowship time with them and the youth students. They got us a sticker to put on Trevor’s guitar case before we left. Both Andrew and Will were great men of God and it was refreshing to be able to fellowship with people around our age group. The next town we started walking to was Milan and along the route a women whose name was Wendy saw us walking and pulled over to ask if we needed anything. We asked if we could camp out on the property and it turned out that they actually had a small vacant property for family members that would come visit them. They let us stay in there for the night. We met Wendy’s daughter Ashley at Huntingdon Church of Christ’s youth group yesterday which led to Wendy finding out about us. Her husband, Matt, took us to the property that was just up the hill from the road. Their nephew, Josh, came to the house to hang out with us for the evening. God blessed us because we needed to our laundry and take a much needed shower after 5 days of walking and sweating. We had the opportunity to minister to Josh and answer questions he had about Christians which cleared some things up for him since he hasn’t had the best upbringing in the church. It was a great to hear that we were able to answer and steer him in the direction of hope found in Christ Jesus. Matt blessed us by taking us out to dinner for the night and was very helpful in meeting accommodations for our stay.
…The next day Josh brought us breakfast and hung out for a little bit before we headed out. It truly was a divine encounter being able to minister Josh at that time of his life. God is so sovereign that he used us to walk across the country just to talk to Josh and say what he needed to hear for that specific time. It was a encouragement to see. Along our way to the next town McLemoresville, a young man was having trouble starting his weed whacker. So we felt lead by God to pray for the machine, which he let us put our hands on it, and it started working again. It just goes to show how much God loved this guy that he even fixed his weed whacker. God, cares about every little thing in life and knows what needs to be done to show his deep love for us. It ministered to this man’s heart and broke down walls he has put in front of God’s sovereign love for him. During our walk today God gave us opportunities to bless and pray for people along the road. It is one of the best feelings to see the joy on these peoples faces after praying and ministering to them. Coming into McLemoresville was a gas station where we ate dinner and asked if we could camp out. The owner of the store managed to get us a place to camp at the town’s museum and gave us a free pizza for dinner! So we walked to the museum location and set up tent at the front of the building. God proves himself faithful everyday and every way….
