Rick and Jane McKinney will spend their 32nd wedding anniversary crossing the Tennessee border into Virginia, their ninth and final state in their Walk To Reclaim America. The McKinneys have walked nearly 2400 miles and through eight states on the “prayer walk” across America.
The couple left Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles, California on January 1st and plan to arrive in Washington DC on July 4th. “The most common question we get is why,” says Rick McKinney. “Of course that’s the best question we could possibly be asked. That gives us the opportunity to tell folks that we’re praying for our country and its people. We tell them that we’re praying that our country will return to the faith of our Founding Fathers. That allows us to start a conversation about personal faith. We just try to turn every conversation into an opening to share the gospel. We’ve done it thousands of times all across America.”
“A lot of folks want to talk about politics or the President,” says Jane McKinney, “but we just want to talk about Jesus. We believe the only answer for our country is for individuals to experience salvation. That can change our nation, one life at a time.”
“This has been the most difficult adventure of our lives,” says Rick McKinney. “We’ve walked every step of the way. We’ve been through every kind of weather, walked in every kind of terrain, walked hurt and injured, and at over 50 years old, really stretched our bodies to the limit. But God has been faithful every step of the way. When we thought we couldn’t take another step, somehow he has kept us moving.”
