GO10 Walk

On April 5th, a historic walk began in Glennville, GA. Laura Belle Barnard, the first international missionary Free Will Baptists sent out, attended the Glennville FWB Church before leaving for India in 1935. The GO10 Walk for the World, a 2,500-mile walk that covers a route commemorating major events in Barnard’s life, began at this church. The purpose of this walk is to challenge youth to consider their role in reaching the nations with the Gospel in their generation.

Thanks to an anonymous donor this unique walk-a-thon has the potential to raise more than a million dollars to share the Gospel with those who have never heard it. So far there are 1,083 walkers registered and $225,451.19 donated online in this historic event.

Pray for Joe Wilson and volunteers who help him coordinate this event. Pray also for safety and health for those walking the different segments. Pray for walkers from Heritage FWB Church as we walk on May 27. The walk will end at the site of our national conference in Oklahoma City on July 20. Check out the website for more information or to participate... I really need the sponsors!
