J. Fernando Panchez expressed his appreciation for the flag of America. He said that America saved him and God wants him to walk from the west coast to the east coast sharing his testimony. He said “Keep doing God’s work!”

We also met Cam, My, Bal, and Ann. Since they understood little English, Pastor “Chick” wrote in the sand to tell them the number of days – and miles – that he walked.

Margaret passed us on the street and said “I was taken by your shirts and had to ask if you’re really walking coast to coast!” It turned out that she works for KNX 1070 News Radio, and though she was already off of work for the day, she interviewed Pastor “Chick” and Barney Musselman, as I was recorded the interview).

Since we had two vehicles, and could park one at the starting point and one at a break-point, I was able to walk today most of the distance. Barney Musselman took this opportunity to be photographer/videographer and to get pictures of Pastor and I walking together. Most of his work was video, so please watch the video when it is posted.

When the time came that Barney had to return to Long Beach, we took a break. He left Pastor with some gifts – including a cap, some delicious oranges, a cross, natural soap, toothpaste, and shampoo.

Thank you, Barney, for joining us and sharing part of this last day with us!
