I have carried the cross several times in Amsterdam.
However the time I carried the cross through Holland was in 1983. I carried the cross from Belgium and to Rotterdam and on to Amsterdam. This was in June and July.
The Netherlands has the best roads in the world for walking with the cross. In most of the places there are walking and bike paths. This was great for the witness with the cross.
In Amsterdam we did street preaching. We also carried the cross through the 'Red Light' district and witnessed to the people there.
There was a big Billy Graham Evangelism Conference
in Amsterdam at the time. I met with Billy Graham, as I
have known him personally since 1971. Many
evangelists from around the world went with us out into
the streets to witness.
My family was with me on this crosswalk in Holland
including my children, Gina, Joel, Joy, Joshua, Joseph
and Jerusalem. We had our car, a camper and tents.
Through the years I have returned to Amsterdam for
rallies and crosswalks. This is a wonderful place to
witness as people come here from all over the world.
