My wife, Denise and I carried the cross in and around the capital city of Bamako, Mali.

This was a wonderful walk in this desert land with the cross. I was thrilled to be able carry the cross over the Niger River.

The cross was carried in the middle of the markets and into shops. The streets and sidewalks were full of people. At times it was even difficult to walk because there were so many things and people competing for space in the city.

We passed out gospel material and Jesus stickers, and spoke of the message of salvation in Jesus Christ. We had no problems and met some beautiful people in Mali.

Pilgrim followers of Jesus,
