Nathan Green had passed Pastor Chick walking, but it was not convenient to pull over. He found me in a parking lot, inquired about the walk, and asked if we needed anything. If we were hungry, he would have bought us breakfast.

Frances Whiitemore stopped the vehicle she was driving to thank Pastor Chick for what he is doing. As she learned more about what he is walking for, she was in complete agreement.

There was a dog wondering around on the highway. Julie and Debby asked me if I was trying to catch it. I told them I was not and explained what I was doing and why Pastor Chick is walking across the country. They expressed their support of our causes!

George Walton greeted Pastor Chick saying he had seen him on Memphis TV as well as on Facebook. He said that what he is doing is awesome – and called him the ‘Freedom Walker’!

Jerry’s friend told him about Pastor Chick walking, then he drove past him, turned around to learn more about why he is walking, and expressed his support.

As the Cross-Country Flagman walked down the highway, Sherree Adams got out of a car and walked with him for a short distance. She wanted to know what his cause is bad enough to walk! She agrees with and supports what he is walking for.

Sydney and Shelby also stopped to learn about the walk.

We visited with Fayette County Mayor Skip Taylor and presented him with a 40 day prayer guide for our country.

In Oakland, Tennessee, we visited with Mayor Chris Goodman. He gladly received the 40 day prayer guide for our nation, stating that it is awesome and that he ‘is with us’.

Today was a much quieter day. The walk was fast and the walk for the day was finished by 9:30 AM!

We had at least three individuals showing interest.

First was Carol Brown who saw him as he started walking. She asked me what he is walking for. After learning about it, she said “You are doing a good thing. God bless you!”

Josh said he had seen us on WREG TV out of Memphis, TN. He wanted to stop and get a picture and express his support. He recommended a good restaurant for lunch and donated towards the cost.

Mary is very much in agreement with what we are doing. She recommended a future safe-station for us.

Darrell Teubner invited Pastor Chick to be on his live show at noon. We also met his wife, Holly and staff member, Melanie. Their children were there also and seemed to be intrigued that someone would walk coast to coast across the country.
