When I first became a Christian back in the 80’s Graham Kendrick and march for Jesus were very popular. I seem to recall he brought out an album called Make way for the cross. Well it seems to me that is what today was all about.
This morning was challenging I was woken by builders outside my bedroom window
This genuinely is the view from my window, just in case anyone thought these trips were all glamour.
Secondly I had a bit of a headache from not eating and drinking enough yesterday. (I know that is hard to believe).
Thirdly I was slightly stressed about getting Spanish tracts printed, my first attempt ended in abject failure linguistically and technologically. I decided to press on with the mission in hand walking to the southern end of Gibraltar and back and see what oppurtunities the Holy Spirit opens up.
Not all Gibraltar”s residents were friendly. I met this fellow at a skate park and he didn’t cooperate for the photo.
Thankfully tourist information put me on to a printer and I collect 300 tracts tomorrow morning. I then continued to the rock’s most southerly point called Europa point passing through some impressive tunnels carved in the rock.
At Europa point I felt a strong sense to pray for Africa which you can see from here and also for my continent of Europe. I felt it was a significant time and concluded that perhaps this has been my main focus for the day. It was intresting to observe a large mosque giving out the call to prayer which I certainly participated in.
Despite my deep intercession, Father also had it in hand that I share his concern for people. I had a great time with Bill a security guard who had come here after a divorce because he wanted a new life. Also Stef a busker, Vladim a bulgarian guy. Pastor Carlos from mainland Spain and a group of scuba divers.
As I headed back to the border the local issues raised their head. It has been reported in the media about delays at the border which appear to be politically motivated. Well now the authorities are targetting their own people returning home from working on Gibraltar.
Someone shouted out let the cross through! I was allowed to pass through unheeded ahead of everbody else I was even helped by a national guard officer.
Finally I was stopped by police several times today. All good. At the airport runway I met Tanya who felt led to give financially to support the walk.
I feel it has been a significant and prophetic day. Thanks for all the support from many nations.
