After the hot sunshine of previous weeks the weather broke on Wednesday and the walk continued in very wet and windy conditions. Camping at night Clive felt blessed that his tent, straining under the gales, remained standing and was not blown away.

Despite the weather people have continued to stop and ask about the cross. Interesting conversations were held with Jehovah’s Witnesses, and a Mormon couple who hosted Clive and felt led to reimburse his costs in support of this work. They left it pinned to the cross with an encouraging note.

After a recommended short cut sent Clive 5 miles in the wrong direction, a bus driver stopped to ask about his ministry. Discovering the mistake the driver invited Clive aboard. For the next fifteen miles Clive received bemused looks from passengers as they scrambled over the cross to get on and off at their chosen stops!

Newspaper coverage has grown and reporters from three local papers interviewed Clive this week. Please pray that their articles will be a true reflection of this work and bring glory to God.

Jonathon Brain’s walk with his cross around Stonehenge proved eventful. He encountered a range of reactions from outright hostility through healthy curiosity to singing hymns with an RE teacher who is also a part-time witch!

“Therefore everyone who hears Jesus words and puts them into practice is like a wise man who builds his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against the house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”

Matthew 7: 24-25
