The Walk to Jerusalem is an imaginary walk that encourages members of all ages to increase their physical activity, spiritual growth and cultural awareness through a virtual tour to Jerusalem.
All age groups are invited to participate in this walk.
Week 15 – We have arrived in Jerusalem! Walking along Jesus path during Holy Week.
Introduction and Tracking Information
Our projected route is across the country to New York City’s JFK Airport where we “board a plane” to cross the Atlantic Ocean to Morocco. From there we journey across northern Africa to Jerusalem.
The total trip from Lord of Love to Jerusalem as planned is approximately 3750 miles (not counting our flying miles). As with any long trip (and life), we may encounter some unexpected detours along the route!
Don’t be intimidated by the total mileage.
We are traveling as a group and all participant miles are aggregated and tracked weekly to help us reach our destination.
