Today’s walk was short – only 10 miles. We had several people join us for the walk through town, which was quite a blessing!

Daniel Contestabile was still with us. LuAnn from Grace Covenant Church, her daughters Shea and Dani, and her mother, Marlene, joined us. John Kellogg, with the Cowboy Church, and the American Legion Commander, Jerry Webster, also joined us.

Dave Nelson is a pastor and veteran. He was blessed to learn about the two walks and said that peace can only be found in Jesus Christ.

A couple that saw Pastor Chick salute them told him that they had stopped and offered me a ride.
