I had a glorious walk with the cross through Ireland. I carried the cross from Belfast to Dublin in the fall of 1971. Often the weather was cold, windy and rainy. I had begun carrying the cross in 1969 and had walked across the United States. This was the fourth country where I carried the cross.
My children, Gina, Joel, Joy and Joshua were with me on this trip. Also, two friends from America, Dale and Sandy Larsen were with us.
The people were warm and friendly to the cross being carried in their country. Often, people would come out of their homes to greet us. I would share the message of Jesus and many prayed and gave their heart and lives to Jesus. I also preached in some wonderful churches.
The reception to the cross inn Dublin was really wonderful.
I returned in the spring of 1972 and preached at some big meetings in Dublin. I spoke to thousands of students at two universities one being Trinity College. I also spoke in some churches.
The people had a deep respect for the cross and were very open to praying to have a personal relationship with Jesus.
God bless the Irish around the world.
