This week we visit Turkey! Our port city is Ephesus.  Please join us as you read all about Turkey, share some prayers that are special to that country and even sample their food with the delicious recipe included in the weekly Travel Guide! 


 We are at 74% of the way to Jerusalem!  As of Tuesday, February 20  we have cumulatively traveled 6002 miles.  That is 12,004,935 steps!  We only have 2158 more miles to cover before we are in Jerusalem – or 4,315,065 more steps to go!  Check the Map on your way out of church today to see the most current numbers.        


We have two parish “Walks” planned for next week! 

On Wednesday, March 7, the SAMs ministry is sponsoring a STROLLER WALK at Wasena Park.

Everyone is welcome – with or without a stroller!!  The walkers will meet at Wasena Park on the Greenway at 3:30 p.m..  We will walk from there to Smith Park and back again.  It is a two mile round trip.  After the walk there will be some time for fellowship, and the children will have a chance to play together. Everyone is welcome – with or without children and children of ALL ages!!


On Saturday, March 10, YOSAR is sponsoring a FAMILY WALK at Green Hill Park in Salem.

We will meet at the first parking lot on the right as you enter the park.  We will begin with group prayer and then walk the 1.6 (round trip) paved path.  The path is 10 feet wide so strollers are welcome.  There are multiple hiking trails throughout the park if you would like to veer off the path and get more steps in!  There is a beautiful playground for children, so bring the whole family!  There are picnic pavilions and restrooms available so you can plan to stay and have a family picnic for lunch.


If you would like to share a reflection of your journey so far, please email us.  We would love to hear from you!  We also welcome pictures.
