Walk to Jerusalem Completed by April 3 with Over 8200 Miles and Counting!

We arrived by Palm Sunday and for the beginning of Passover. Please take time to read Psalm 121 and 122, two of the ascent Psalms. God protected us as we did our walking. Blessed art Thou, the Lord God, King of the Universe. Continue to put on the miles by walking and enjoy better health! 
Thanks to all who participated, Karen
