Mayor Larry Stacy told us he is filling the role of his secretary today. He was busy, but took time out to meet with Freedom Walker and receive a 40 day prayer guide for our country as a memento of this historic walk.

He also told us where we could purchase freshly made grape juice – at a local winery.

John and Gary Rommel pulled up beside the car with obvious interest in what we are doing. They were happy to receive a card so they can look it up on the internet.

I stopped to purchase some fresh grape juice at the Post Familie Winery and met Katie. She had seen us walking on the way to work and agrees with our cause.

Mary and Roger Sanders are Christian and on much the same page as us.

Paul Millsap is a veteran and very supportive of what we are doing.

A police woman in Lamar, AR pulled over to ask what the walk is for.

A man in a red truck backed up in the traffic lane to ask about the walk. He only had a short time as traffic came and he had to move on.

Marvin Tyson is 92 years old and says he “no quitter”. He had seen Freedom Walker in the Russellville newspaper, thought he had passed this area already, and was glad to get to meet him.

James Teeter came out of a store with Shay, who asked questions about the walk.

Dane and Brenda Mayes had seen Pastor Chick earlier in the day walking and were surprised to see him in person again later.

Today, Sunday, we ate breakfast at Waffle House and met Malinda Stevenson and her son, J.T., who agree with our cause.

Then we visited a Freewill Baptist church and met many people who are supportive of our walk. Some had read about it in the newspaper.

Today we visited an SDA church. Bailey, age 12, came up to me and asked if I had met the man that is walking across the country. She was happy to find out that he was with me in the church and she greeted him, thanked him, and talked briefly. She was at the Pottsville Elementary School Thursday when Pastor spoke to the students.

During the worship service, James Teeter (non-SDA who called us just before 9:30) joined us. He is from Pottsville, had seen Pastor walking, and wanted to meet and talk with us. He said he had recently given notice at his job, believing he was being called somewhere else, but not knowing where. He told Pastor he would like to walk with him for a few days.

After fellowship meal, we had a nice time of fellowship and sharing. The pastor is a volunteer lay pastor. He and his wife, along with another couple sat with us in the foyer until almost sundown We shared about the walk, victory, perfection, trademark lawsuit, and more.
