On June 13, 2008, Arthur Blessitt walked his 38,102nd mile in Zanzibar, off of the coast of Tanzania, completing a journey that began in 1969. Arthur started walking with a 12-foot cross on December 25, 1969, and has successfully carried a large wooden cross into every nation and major island group of the world. In this audiobook you will follow Arthur's journey from his initial call from God to carry a cross from Hollywood, where he was known as "the minister of Sunset Strip," across America to its capital, Washington, DC. Then you will accompany Arthur as he hacks his way through the Darien Jungle from Panama to Colombia. You'll join Arthur and his son, Joshua, as they take the cross to South Africa in 1986. You will be moved by the stories of how God used them to bring spiritual, physical, and relational healing to many during the final tumultuous days of racial apartheid. You will also trek with Arthur and his wife, Denise, as they cross desert sands to take the cross to Saudi Arabia when the nation was closed to tourists and into regions of the former USSR just weeks after its collapse. You'll be amazed by how people in all cultures respond to the cross. As Arthur has traveled around the world, he has found the cross to be a universal symbol of God's love that breaks down the barriers of language and culture.
