MISSISSIPPI PRAYER WALK NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER-APRIL 2002
Praise the Lord, my  precious brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ! I hope this finds you all well and being blessed! We in the Rowe Tribe are all well and blessed!

This prayer walk up the Mississippi river has exceeded my expectations, but the Lord always does. To date, I have not walked much farther than a total of 100 miles (Since December 29th), and the number of people I have ministered to and have prayed with to ask Jesus Christ into their lives  has been well  over 150 souls. THANK YOU JESUS!
Just last week, when Michelle came to pick me up at Pointe A la Heche, I had a group of 20-25 people gathered around me, listening intently to my presentation of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Occasions like that are frequent on this walk. I thought I would send out a few highlights from our journey.

 As I stated earlier, we began our walk on the 29th of December, in Venice, La.
 My mother and my Uncle Larry, who is handicapped, came to spend the winter with us...my Uncle  stayed with us for about a month, but he really wanted to go back up North to the cold, so my cousin Dana came down and brought him back. My mother stayed with us until March. We were blessed, because we were able to keep her away from the harsh winter weather that they have in Northern Minnesota!

We parked our motorhome and our bus at New Life Ministries in Boothville, which is pastored by Pastor Duke Chance and his wife, Sister Sharon. They truly showed us wonderful hospitality while we were there.

During our stay there, we discovered that the first Mardi Gras ever held on Louisiana soil had been held at a point on the river In 1699, which was subsequently named Bayou Mardi Gras.

Brother Andy of New Life Ministries took Pastor Duke, my Raceland brothers Charlie and Abel  Plaisance and myself across the river to Fort St. Phillip, where Bayou Mardi Gras is located. Once we got over there, we prayed a prayer of repentance on behalf of the Church in America, then we planted a Christian flag at Fort St. Philip, and claimed the land on both sides of the Mississippi River for the Glory of God in the Name of the King of kings and the Lord of lords, Jesus Christ! We blew our shofars on that spot, and on the spot where bayou Mardi Gras meets the River. It was a Glorious time in the Lord. I believe it will bear much fruit in the future.

On another memorable occasion, brother Terry of New Life took my mother, Talitha, Feather, Elijah and myself to the actual mouth of the Mississippi River, to pray for our nation and for the Mississippi prayer walk. We strapped my cross onto his boom, and took about an hour trip down the river until we got to the mouth. Then we prayed and I blew my shofar there as well.
As I have said, the harvest and opportunities to minister on this journey have already truly been great. There has been a lot of prayer besides ours that have been poured out on this river. I am expecting wonderful testimonies of God's Miraculous Demonstrations of His Power during this journey.

Please pray for pastor Duke and sister Sharon, assistant pastor Steve, and the ministry at New life, and for the congregation there, that they would be used in a mighty way to further the kingdom of god in venice and boothville, and that all their needs would be met according to christ's riches in glory. Also pray for brother andy and brother terry and their families and their jobs, that the lord would mightily bless them. They were truly a blessing to us during our stay there.

This is an excerpt from my journal dated January 4th, 2002:

It was a wonderful day. I prayed with three people to ask Jesus into their hearts during my walk. I walked 41/2 miles. I also got to encourage some Christians who loved the Lord.
Louise was one of the Christians I was able to encourage…she told me that she had been at a restaurant, and there were some people there who were talking bad about me. They said that I was a nut, walking around, thinking I was Jesus. But there were two police officers there who spoke up for me and said they had talked to me, and they said I was o.k., and that I didn't think I was Jesus, and I was doing a good thing, praying for our country. Praise the Lord!
Tonight, brother Duke and I were talking, when Michelle came in the church and told me that there were some people looking for me. Brother Duke and I went outside, and there were two women, T___ and S____, and two children. S___ was a backslidden Christian. She had gone to brother Duke's church for several months, and then fell away. About three days ago, she had done some bad drugs, and had been experiencing some terrible things, like hallucinations and demons looking at her through her window.

Her boyfriend was also having a bad experience with the drugs. Her mother had told her to go to New Orleans to a psychiatrist, and they were about to go, when one of the children told her that she had seen Jesus walking down the road today. She told her maybe she should go see Jesus. T___ told her that it must be the man that is parked at Brother Duke's church. They thought they would come and see me to get some help.

Brother Duke and I ministered to both of them; and they both were restored to the Lord. Then we went to their house, and ministered to the two men there, admonishing them all to get their lives right. The two men prayed a prayer of repentance.

Then we prayed for the house, and the souls there. It was a wonderful night of deliverance…I am too tired to go into great detail. But a total of seven people got saved today. I praise the Lord for His Grace.
.
I have spent the past couple of months discipling S_____ and her fiance. They have made some wonderful progress. Please pray for them, that they will continue in the nurture and admonition of the lord, and that they will be faithful in continuing their fellowship with the body of christ. Like all young christians, they still have some issues that need to be dealt with (faithfulness in fellowship being one of them!)...but I am believing that the author and finisher of our faith will complete that good work that he has started!

While we were at New Life, I was blessed to meet Pastor Max Latham of the Assemblies of God in Buras. This man has a vision for true Christian unity for the area.
He has been involved in organizing corporate prayer for the Body of Christ in the area. A while back (two years ago?) he and several other pastors and their congregations went down to the mouth of the Mississippi River in 30 boats, and they all spanned the river, and prayed that the Lord would work a True and Mighty revival up the Mississippi River and throughout the United States. He is in the process of building a church/24 hour prayer center in Buras.
As people pass by the land they are greeted with the sight of three MASSIVE steel crosses, and an empty tomb, with a prayer garden built around it.
PLEASE PRAY FOR PASTOR MAX AND HIS FAMILY, THAT THE LORD WOULD BLESS HIM ABUNDANTLY FOR HIS OBEDIENCE TO THE VISION THE LORD HAS GIVEN HIM.

From brother Duke's church, we moved our motorhomes to White Dove Fellowship, pastored by pastor Mike Cox, and his wife, Elaine.
On the way there, the lower hose of the radiator blew, and the motorhome seriously overheated and stalled on us. I was able to tighten the clamp, and we added water, and limped the motorhome to White Dove.  
We had a wonderful stay there, and Pastor Mike and sister Elaine made sure that we were at home there. Once a month they have a community prayer meeting intended to unite the Body of Christ in prayer from 7:00 p.m. til midnight. When it had first begun, I understand that there were many churches involved. Unfortunately, only White Dove and Brother Max Latham's church have stuck to it.

I know that everyone has “legitimate” excuses not to participate in prayer meetings like this. And while they pray at their own houses of worship for “revival”, it appears that they don't really seem to want to see it happen, unless it's held at THEIR church. We have to get beyond all that and stop pursuing the furtherance of our own kingdom and pursue the furtherance of the Kingdom of God,  AT ANY COST!
It seems like many people think they could do it better. Or they're worried about losing “their” sheep. Or maybe they're worried about being out-preached, or out-prayed. Or maybe they just want to be in control. WHERE IS THE HUMILITY?
When I speak of unity among the churches, I don't mean unity among religions. The Bible says “What concord has Christ with Belial?” Truly, I don't believe a Christian, a Muslim, a Hindu, a Jehovah's Witness and a Mormon can all get together and pray in unity, because none of them would be praying to the same God.
But despite differences, I believe a Baptist, a Methodist, a Charismatic and a Pentecostal, Lutheran, Presbyterian, “Full-gospel”, and non-denominational Christian COULD effectively lift up their voices in one accord to the ONE TRUE GOD and see wondrous results. But we have to humble ourselves and walk in the love  of Christ one toward another.                   
 It's doable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pastor Mike and Pastor Max have a burden to see this come to pass. PLEASE PRAY FOR THEM AND THE BODY OF CHRIST IN AMERICA, THAT WE WOULD UNITE TOGETHER IN ONE ACCORD AGAINST THE POWER OF THE ENEMY IN OUR LAND.

LANCE'S SOAPBOX
If we don't get it soon, we are going to see our freedoms taken away from us, and our Nation COMPLETELY given over to the god of this world.  Satan and his children know the importance of unity.
A good example of this is that at the time of this writing, we have seen The Muslims unite in one accord against Israel, and pool their resources (money, time, and armaments) together to flood the world with their anti-Semetic propaganda, so that the world seems to be buying the lie, and turning against Israel. Jesus said that the children of this world were wiser in that generation than the children of Light (Lk. 16:8). It doesn't seem to have changed.
Imagine what would happen to the spiritual condition of our nation if the Church would unite with one accord against Satan, and pool their resources (money, time and spiritual weaponry) to flood the world with the TRUTH that is in Jesus Christ! Satan knows the damage that would cause, so he works division in the body of Christ.

A LOT OF CHRISTIANS PROFESS TO HAVE FAITH IN GOD, BUT THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH FAITH TO BELIEVE THAT THIS KIND OF UNITY IN THE BODY OF CHRIST COULD BE ACCOMPLISHED!  
AT THE MARDI GRAS OUTREACH, THERE IS WONDERFUL UNITY WITH THE BODY OF CHRIST ACROSS DENOMINATIONAL LINES, BECAUSE WE ARE SIMPLY FOCUSED ON UNITING TO TEAR DOWN THE DEVIL'S STRONGHOLDS!

THERE IS WONDERFUL UNITY IN THE BODY OF CHRIST IN THE COUNTRIES WHERE CHRISTIANS HAVE LOST THEIR FREEDOM AND ARE PERSECUTED FOR THE WORD OF GOD. THEY WILL LAY DOWN THEIR LIVES FOR ONE ANOTHER ACROSS DENOMINATIONAL LINES.
I DON'T BELIEVE WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL WE LOSE OUR FREEDOM FOR THE CHURCH IN AMERICA TO UNITE. IF WE PUT ASIDE OUR OWN AGENDAS, AND TRULY SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, I BELIEVE MIGHTY THINGS CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!
I BELIEVE THAT'S WHY THE LORD HAS GIVEN ME THE VISION TO EMBARK ON THIS PRAYER WALK UP THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER.
As I carry my cross up this river, I pray for every pastor I know by name. I plead the Blood of Jesus Christ over their families and over the ministries the Lord has given them.
I cry out to the Lord that He would pardon their iniquities for His Name's sake, and that He would not enter into Judgment with His servants.
I pray that if any of the pastors that I lift up in prayer are seeking to glorify themselves and further their own kingdom, that He would have mercy on them, and give them true PASTOR'S hearts. That the Lord would make them into pastors after His Own Heart, and that He would bless them with the revelation of the NECESSITIY of the Unity of the BODY of Christ, if we are to see our nation healed.
The problem is that while they would not readily admit it, it seems that many pastors think that their congregation is THE Body of Christ.  In Truth, they are only PART OF THE BODY OF CHRIST; LIKE THE HAND SAYING IT DOESN'T NEED THE REST OF THE BODY. I used the hand because the hand has the fingers that do the pointing in accusation and judgment at other parts if the body.
PLEASE NOTE: I AM NOT SAYING THAT ANY OF THE PASTORS THAT I  PERSONALLY KNOW FALL INTO THIS CATEGORY. I DON'T STAND IN JUDGEMENT OF MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS. THE LORD KNOWS OUR HEARTS BETTER THAN WE DO. I ONLY INTERCEDE ON THEIR BEHALF, THAT IF THEY HAVE FALLEN INTO ERROR IN THEIR MINISTRY OR WALK WITH THE LORD, THAT HE WOULD HAVE MERCY ON THEM AND REVEAL IT TO THEM.

I pray the same kind of prayer for the evangelists and other servants in ministry that I know, because these are common maladies of the body of Christ. I SINCERELY HOPE THAT OTHERS PRAY A SIMILAR PRAYER FOR ME!!
As I walk, I pray that the Lord would raise up laborers who would come beside the pastors, and that the focus in the church would be to further the Work of the Kingdom.
Before we left White Dove, the church blessed us with a fellowship dinner. It is always a blessing to be part of the family of God where ever we go.
PLEASE PRAY FOR PASTOR MIKE AND SISTER ELAINE, THAT THE LORD WOULD BLESS THEM WITH WISDOM TO REACH THEIR COMMUNITY FOR CHRIST, AND THAT THEIR CONGREGATION WOULD RISE UP TO THE WORK. PRAY THAT THE LORD WOULD BLESS THEM IN EVERY ENDEAVOR TO FURTHER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

                                                            MARDI GRAS 2002

While we were at White Dove, Mardi Gras was fast approaching, and as I sought the Lord as to whether or not we should go, it seemed like this would be the first Mardi Gras I missed in years. But I don't go just to say I have been there...I seek the Lord every year to determine if it is His Will that I should go. It seemed the Lord was giving me such a wonderful harvest here, that He would just keep me working the fields in Plaquemines Parish, which was fine with me.
I felt the Lord was opening the doors to go on the Sunday of the Mardi Gras weekend. That would give me two days of outreach there. The plan was to drive the motorhome to Brother Duke's church and park it there while we were in New Orleans, since the engine wasn't running well.  
We would take the bus to Celebration Church, and park at the camp there. We didn't make it to brother Duke's. It was about to give out when I pulled it into brother Austin William's  yard.
Austin is a welder, and had blessed us with welding a hitch on the back of our bus while we were at New Life. He told me that it was all right to park the motorhome there while we reached out to the souls at Mardi Gras. I thought I would figure out what to do with the motorhome when we got back.
Austin mentioned that he knew a Christian Mechanic that would give me a good price.The outreach at Mardi Gras was good. The best part for me personally was to see all my brothers and sisters, fellow evangelists from across the nation again. We had a nice sized camp there.
As usual, I had some excellent one-on-one encounters with souls on the streets of the French Quarter, and I saw a couple of people come to the Lord with sincere hearts.
One man stayed and talked with me as his friends tried to pull him away. He was crying out: “Please pray for me, man. I want to get free from all this!” His friends would come and try to get him away from me, but everytime he would resist them, and tell them that he wanted to talk to me. He told me he didn't believe that he could pray with me out of a sincere heart right then, but he knew that he needed Jesus in his life. After about 45 minutes of telling me his troubles, his “friends” prevailed, and succeeded in pulling him away from me. As he was being dragged through the crowd away from me, he kept on looking back, and shouting, “Please don't forget to pray for me!”
 I actually had about 3 or 4 similar encounters while I was there.  One was a pastor's son, who was convicted by the presence of the crosses on the street.
PEOPLE WANT TO BE SET FREE FROM THE POWER OF THE ENEMY. BUT HOW CAN THEY FIND FREEDOM IF NO ONE IN THEIR COMMUNITY IS WILLING TO SHOW THEM THE WAY OUT?
The Lord gave Michael Siemer a novel approach to witnessing to the internet crowd while he was on Bourbon Street. He found out where the “Bourbo-cam” was, and put a sign on his cross with several pages on it. The camera would refresh every minute or so, and Mike would flip another page, so the viewers of the Bourbon Street madness would get a gospel presentation. One of his signs said: “E-mail this street preacher” and it had his e-mail address on it. He was very busy answering e-mails during the day time while we were at Celebration Church.
A precious sister in the Lord, Sheryl Clavio had a wonderful encounter with a man from Omaha, Nebraska. He ended up following us in the early morning hours, as we walked back to our vehicles, and gave his heart to Jesus. When people leave their homes to go to the Mardi Gras debauchery, little do they know that the Lord is orchestrating circumstances in their lives that will lead them to His Grace.
About a week later, Brother Francis Lovell received an e-mail from him. Part of it reads as follows:
“You had your hands full Tue. Night and I was impressed with what you are willing to do. I have been thinking of the unusual draw I had and the associated encounters, they had an impact on me. I feel there is a plan and I have been given a taste of what I see others have in their heart. The taste came in three strong spiritual experiences, one earlier in the day, then in talking with Sheryl, and one on the long drive home...I believe I have been shown enough to understand what God's plan is for me. It appears interwoven with advice I was given. I will trust in Jesus to provide the path…”
Wonderful Jesus! All the church needs to do is ARISE, and this nation WILL be mightily impacted one soul at a time!
PLEASE PRAY FOR PASTOR DENNIS WATSON AND THE STAFF AT CELEBRATION CHURCH, THAT THE LORD WOULD BLESS THEM ABUNDANTLY!
When we got back to Port Sulphur, brother Dave Wasson, the owner of Quick Time Auto Repair in Buras told me that he would fix the motorhome for whatever the parts cost. He told me that he would donate the labor. Praise the Lord! I believe the cost was probably well above what I gave him. He did a great job, and we were blessed.
PLEASE PRAY FOR ALL THOSE WHO I JUST MENTIONED, AND FOR BROTHER DAVE AND AUSTIN WILLIAMS, THAT THE LORD WOULD BLESS THEM, THEIR FAMILIES, AND THEIR BUSINESSES FOR THE BLESSING THEY WERE TO US!
EASTER OUTREACH IN DIAMOND, LOUISIANA
When we got back from Mardi Gras, we moved from White Dove to River of Life in Diamond.
Pastor Bud and Holly Moreno, and Associate pastor Elroy Mackey and sister Flossie welcomed us with open arms. Their church is a little church, actually a trailer house converted into a House of Worship.
Our journey has been VERY slow...LOTs of people have been coming to me to be ministered to on almost a daily basis. I have never walked more than 5 miles in this prayer walk yet. So each church that has allowed us to stay on their grounds has had us for about 3-4 weeks. THAT IS A HUGE BLESSING TO US!
We never intend on staying that long...But we are on the Lord's time, and the pastors understand that.  AS I SAID BEFORE, LOTS OF PEOPLE STOP AND WANT TO BE MINISTRED TO.
Anyway, on the Saturday before Easter Sunday, we did an impromptu reenactment of the crucifixion. I had originally tried to arrange it so that we could do it on the community center grounds, but I came up against some opposition with the legal channels there, and just figured that we weren't able to do it.
On Saturday, Pastor Lee Hughart of the City Price Baptist church in Diamond suggested that we hold the reenactment on the River of Life church property.  NOTICE HE DIDN'T SAY “WE CAN HOLD IT ON OUR PROPERTY”. I don't think Pastor Lee is trying to build his own kingdom! I believe he will be blessed for that attitude. I know it blessed me to hear him say that.
We literally had about 6 hours to pull it off, and we did. Brother Harold Sylve (from City Price) was our Jesus, and Pastors Bud, Elroy, and Michael Cox showed up on very short notice to take part in the outreach.
We walked down the main street of Diamond with a crowd of people beating “Jesus” and shouting “crucify Him!” People came out of their houses to behold the spectacle, and the Saturday afternoon baseball game was put on hold as the players stopped to stare in wonder and disbelief at our procession as we walked by.  
Brother Harold did a wonderful  job as a depiction of a suffering Saviour. I hear that later he got some persecution, because he was supposed to be in that game!
Pastor Bud and I preceded the crowd with my sound-system cross, and announced the reenactment to the neighborhood.  A man named George, who is in the bondage of alcoholism was so moved by what he saw, that he took off his hat as we approached him, and then when we got close enough, he went to “Jesus'” and became a “Simon of Cyrene” as he took the cross, and began to walk with it. George stayed with us throughout the whole production, and at one point, after I had preached, he told me he needed Jesus to set him free and save him. I believe  his cry for help was genuine.
After we got to the church property, the pastors each took turns preaching the gospel message, as “Jesus” hung on the cross. Some people who were passing by in their vehicles pulled up in their cars to hear the gospel preached.  
All in all, it was a good outreach for such a short notice.  The pastors are talking about doing it again next year. If they do, it should draw a crowd next year! Please pray for these pastors and their communities.
 Brother Bud is looking to buy some land and build a bigger church. Please pray that the Lord would bless them. Pray the Lord would bless pastor Lee and his wife, Allison, as they shepherd the precious souls committed to them at City Price Baptist Church.
One other focus of prayer you could lift up is that the pastors down here would be able to enter into fulltime ministry. Most of them have to hold down jobs to maintain their ministry. But the sheep need their shepherds at any time of the day or night. Pray the Lord would bless them to enable them to fulfill that need.

Also please pray for Pastor Gene and the congregation at the United Methodist Church in Triumph. Pastor Gene has a heart to equip the saints. We visited there, and were really blessed by the love and the generous gifts of the congregation.
In that light, Please pray for Pastor Theodore Turner of Mt. Olive Baptist church; Pastor Frank of Triumph Baptist church, Pastor Mike of 1st Baptist church in Venice, Pastor Jesse of Faith Temple in Buras, Pastor Stovall of New Jerusalem Full Gospel Church, Lighthouse Christian fellowship of Grand Bayou (they need a pastor), and pastor Melvin Cross of Bethlehem Baptist church in Pointe a la Heche.
And last, but NOT LEAST (the last shall be first), pray for Dr. Demitri Cossich, Dentist, friend, and fellow minister of the gospel. He blessed our entire family with much needed dental work, and gave us about 100 “JESUS”  signs to plant up the river.
 Please pray for his entire staff...all Christians, and all have been a wonderful blessing to us. Sister Michelle did a superb job at cleaning our teeth! If I attempt to name them all I will no doubt leave  some out, so please pray for them all, that the Lord would abundantly bless them.
May the Lord Bless you and keep you…
Love
Lance,  Michelle, Talitha, Feather, Elijah, Grace, Noah, and Abigail                                                            
                 
MORE UPDATES:
I WALKED FROM DIAMOND TO JUST A COUPLE MILES FROM BELLE CHASSE WHILE WE WERE PARKED AT RIVER OF LIFE. It became a real challenge to drive all the way to Belle Chasse each day. We figured we were putting over a hundred miles a day on the car, as she would travel 25 miles to drop me off, then she would drive 25 miles back home, then she would drive 27-29 miles to pick me up, and we would cover that distance again on the way back home. Since we were putting so many miles on the car, we decided to cross the ferry at Pointe A La Heche, and begin to walk the other side of the river.
 
The harvest on that side was good, as well. One day Michelle came to pick me up, and there was a crowd of 25 people gathered around me, hearing the gospel preached to them. Three of them indicated that they were born again, but the rest of them prayed to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I have had similar things happen quite a number of times on this side of the river.
 
One day I was walking on the levee, and three children came up to me and told me their father would like to visit with me. We backtracked about ¼ of a mile, and I discovered that they were part of a family of thirteen. Danny Garris came out to meet me, and we had a good time of fellowship. They are a Christian family, and they love the Lord. By The time we were finished, he invited me and my family to come to their house the next day to eat with them.

 

Front to back: Elijah, Issac, me, Sarah, Grace, (second row) Naomi, Haila, Noah, Peter,  (Third row) Curtis {with the cup}, Mary, neighbor boy, & Danny (Luke is missing from the picture. Curtis is their adopted son…two of their children are grown and have left home)

When we went to their house to eat with them, Danny invited us to park our motorhomes on their property. This past Monday, we moved the bus, and Tuesday we moved the motorhome. It was quite an experience crossing the ferry with these large vehicles.

April 18, 2002 Garris' yard, Davant, La.

Yesterday I prayed with a group of about 6 people to receive Jesus into their heart as I walked into Phoenix. As I walked there, a few people were waiting to talk to me at the end of a drive way. When I got near them, they told me that their grand mother wanted to talk to me, but she couldn't walk all that way. So I followed them to “Ms. Beatrice's” house. Beatrice loves the Lord. I prayed in agreement that her alcoholic son would come to know Jesus. Beatrice told me she had heard about me a long time ago, and that she had been wanting to meet me.
It was there that I prayed with six people to ask Jesus into their heart.
 Last night I visited Agape Christian Fellowship. The pastor told me that there was a stronghold of witchcraft, religion and Masonry on this side of the river. The pastor's name is Robert Little.

April 22, 2002 Garris' yard, Davant, La

Praise the Lord! I had another dream last night. The gist of the dream was that I was not to hurry on this journey. That's the second time the Lord spoke that to me. I was with some fellow evangelists, Brian O'Connell, and Brian Chamberlin, and a couple of people that I am not sure who they were. Any way, there was quite a group with us. I felt kind of pressed to hurry because of the size of the camp, and I didn't want to be a burden on the places where we parked... But Brian Chamberlin was the one who told me that I shouldn't hurry, because of the fruit we were getting. I just had to trust the Lord for the provision we needed.

April 24, 2002, Garris' residence

Yesterday Cookie and Deborah came over here to bless us all with a huge gumbo feed. Talitha and Mary made the dessert…blackberry cobbler. What a wonderful blessing to have friends who will travel for miles to be with us!
Wednesday May 1, 2002 Garris' residence

I have walked 3 ½ miles beyond the Belle Chasse ferry. Today I intend on picking up where I left off on the other side. I figure I will walk that side until I reach the intercoastal canal. Then it will be about time to move up.
As a confirmation, I received this e-mail last night:

My husband and I saw you on Holy Thursday as you were walking near Jesuitbend in Plaquemines parish.  I gave you a nail whit a purple ribbon.  I enjoyed the short talk with you, but most of all I enjoyed the inspiration I received from you.  Just watching you with all your faith exposed for the world to see was wonderful to me.  Please keep up the good work.  I just wanted you to know you are an inspiration to many.

Thanks for being there at a time when Jesus was defanately needed more than ever in my life.
Pam and John
