Officer Billy Davis with the Hardeman County Sheriff’s Department stopped and asked what Pastor Chick is walking for. He appreciates the cause and offered to help in any way we need.

Mike Hodges says that we are doing a good thing. He told us he is buying our lunch at Joe’s Restaurant.

A few young men shouted across the road “What are you doing?” and received a reply.

I parked close to Baker Glass Company. One of the staff came out and invited me to sit inside in the air conditioning to cool off while waiting for Pastor Chick. When Pastor Chick arrived, we visited with them.

While we talked, Jeff donated his service by washing our windshield inside and out. He also offered cold watermelon.

After a very warm discussion, Mayor Brooks bought us lunch at the Rockabilly Cafe. It was a very satisfying lunch.

The first person that stopped Pastor Chick and expressed her support was Marilyn from Michie. A friend had seen him in the news and told her about him. She says “God bless you and be with you!”

Below are pictures of others that stopped to talk and express their interest and support.

After 9.9 miles, the walk for the day ended in Eastview, TN. It was a real blessing to be finished early as the temperatures are nearing 100 degrees.

When we came out of the store at our stopping point, we found Jimmy Rhodes from Milan, TN taking pictures of our pace car. We talked awhile and found him to be very into our causes. He prayed for us before we went on our way.

While we were eating, Joel, and his wife Andrea, Littlejohn sat at a table next to us and we talked awhile as they took interest in how the walk is going. Joel knew about the walk since before it started. He donated 2 route marker signs that we use to mark where the walk is stopped for the day.They are working out very well.
