Saginaw Youth Makes Hopkins County
Friday, on Christian Journey to Nation's Capitol

You may have heard about him already, but we "met up" with 19 year old, Junior Garcia, as he made his way across Hopkins County, on Friday. Garcia began his journey, in his hometown of Saginaw, on Thursday, June 7th, and is headed to Washington D.C., with a large cross on his shoulder.
Junior Garcia, from The Oasis Church, in Saginaw, Texas, plans to walk roughly 12 hours per day for the next five weeks to draw the attention of America back to the cross of Jesus Christ, according his Pastor Randy Lemme.
A support team will follow him on foot and on a cart and bus. They'll help shield him from traffic, especially on busy highways.
Once Garcia arrives in Washington, a prayer service will be held at the White House.
His journey will also raise money for Speed the Light, an Assembly of God Missions giving program that will buy a car for a missionary in Mexico, Lemme said.

Junior and his entourage made it into Sulphur Springs, on Friday night, and will begin again, headed toward Mt. Pleasant, at 8:00 a.m.
Best of Luck and Godspeed, Junior!!!
