My name is Laura Robinson, and on February 29, 2016 I started a 1700-mile trek along the Pacific Coast from the Canadian border to the Mexican border. This endeavor will mean 3 things to me personally… 1) It will be a way to challenge myself physically; 2) It will be the culmination of a dream that I shared with my mother since I was a little girl; and 3) It will be a spiritual journey that will draw me closer to the Lord – I look forward to ‘stretching’ my faith and learning to trust in Him more fully with every step I take.
That being said, I want this to be done for a purpose greater than myself. The catalyst was a series of sermons at our church (Hope Chapel Foursquare Church in Hermosa Beach) emphasizing support for our worldwide missions. As my husband and I discussed the impact this trek could have for the benefit of our missions, we realized that it doesn’t have to be solely for that purpose. I’ll only do this once in my life, so I want it to count for as much good as possible, not only for our church, but for a number of other faith-based non-profits close to my heart – and for (hopefully) hundreds of churches on or near my route… including some who are giving me much-needed logistical help!
“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.” ~ John Wesley
Jesus sent the apostles out with instructions in Matthew 10:11… “In whatever town or village you enter, search there for a worthy home and ask to stay there until you leave.” I look forward to meeting hundreds of people I’ll be spending eternity with – and I can’t wait to see what God will do!
Will you consider being a Sole Mate? 😀
