Walking across America

A couple showed up at Ban Suk Korean Baptist Church Thursday evening with tired feet.

They're walking from Los Angeles to Washington DC to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the Pentecostal revival in South Korea. As well, they're thanking Americans for all their support of South Korea. The Rev. David Lee of Ban Suk said they came with a van and driver, who carried all their supplies for their trek of several thousand miles.

According to the Christian Science Monitor, South Korea boasts 10 of the 11 largest Christian churches in the world. Obviously, something is working there, but the couple is praying for the spirit of the 1907 revival to return.

Unfortunately, short notice and prior commitments prevented me from speaking with them before they continued their trip today. But I can't help but be inspired by their faith and dedication anyway.
