My wife, Denise and I rented a car at the airport. Denise would drive up the road in front of me several miles, park and wait with water and supplies for me to arrive. Often a crowd would be gathered around her and the car. She would give out Jesus stickers and gospel materials to the people. She always greeted me smiling and cheerful. Most of the time it was very hot and there she sat in the baking heat of the car waiting for me. She is the tough one of the two of us!
We drove to the far end of the island behind an old oil refinery and started walking with the cross. We carried the cross the length of the island and met many wonderful people.
It was a good witness in this island nation.
Oh, I must say that I started carrying my third cross on this island. The first cross was broken in 1970 in the United States. We repaired it and went on across the country from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. I built the next cross in England and carried it until September of this year. It was so cracked and broken from 24 years around the world that I needed to retire it too. I then made the new one I’m carrying now. It is the same size but built with a lighter wood. Even though this new one weighs less than the others, it sill weighs about 45 pounds. It works great!
I love to carry the cross for Jesus as He has called us to do. Glory
