Saint James Way Walk Takes Portuguese Route

The Saint James Way walk for Europeans is taking a new route this summer- the Portuguese Route.

The Saint James Way walk for Europeans is taking a new route this summer- the Portuguese Route.

On August 2 they will meet in Tuy, Spain on the north Spanish-Portuguese border. The goal is Santiago de Compostela. This is the “European Edition” meaning that there will be no US-based groups involved. Rick Satterthwaite reports, “those of us who are Americans serving in Europe participate in this walk and the whole idea is to bring our friends along who are up for walking an ancient route like this – knowing we are Christians – but without the typical pressure of a conference or similar activity.

Pray that a good number of people would join us, that the group will get along and understand each other (it's a French, Portuguese and Spanish mix) and that God would bring them to Himself.”
