God has called us as a family to survey the land – like a spiritual Lewis and Clark journey, using the Bible as our yardstick.
Specifically, God called us to travel to each of the 50 states within the United States of America over a period of approximately 15 months. In selling our home and traveling the country in a motor home, we were free from debt and free to help our family, brothers and sisters in the Lord, and others God put in our path.
Starting in Santa Barbara, California in August 2009, we completed the 48 continental states in August 2010 and all 50 by October 2010. We've met countless people, prayed with many, given out over five thousand gospel tracts and, by the grace of God, led some souls to Christ. You can read about our journey by clicking on the blog posts below. You can also be notified of our latest blog by e-mail if you click on the sign up box, on the upper right of the above picture and sign up. We welcome your prayers!
“Lord, who hath believed our report?
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
Romans 10:16, 17 (also see Isaiah 53:1)
