hi everybody. i've had this idea for some time now - few months or something. and im planning for summer 2008. yah its a long time away - but im in australia for half the year in 2007 - and it gives enough time to save up money for the trip. heres the idea - if you have any suggestions to add - or thoughts about it - please respond: taking four people. getting those large backpacks - you know the ones that people use to go on long long hikes - and then driving down to seven or eight major cities. probably seven depending on the amount of time we have. when we get to that city - we'll have a time of intercession. we park the vehicle somewhere safe... in a church parking lot or something. and then from there - we split up - go by pairs. Jesus sent out his disciples and the 70 elders in pairs. so we've taken that example. we go out into the city - away from the city - anywhere we go. we evangelize. we speak the truth in love - spread the gospel. for a week we do this - bringing a tent - find a place to tent - find the cheapest way to eat and drink water etc. use supplies etc. after a week has gone by - we meet back at the vehicle (Lord willing it is still there) and have a recap of the week - some intercession for those we reached out to. and then off to the next city. we've only got 2 months for this. its short - i was planning for 3 or 4 months. something like that. and then on sundays - we go for fellowship at some church. (i'll probably ask for help with that once we figure out what cities we're going to). for the week of evangelism - we'll be walking. it'll be tough - and there'll be some tough parts of town to get through - but God will be with us. if you have any suggestions - or any ideas on what cities we could go to - we're planning on hitting Washington - Oregon - California - and arizona if the Lord permits time. the first three for sure. if you know any churches we could attend - please let me know. i do pray this will all work out - please keep this in prayer. if any of you live in washington - oregon - or california - and wish to join us. please let me know as well. we only be taking one vehicle - which can seat five. we'll have four on the way down and back up to western coast canada (which is where i live). thank you, God bless. gek.
