8 Million Steps for Christianity

To Jerusalem By Foot

Jörgen will walk from Lund in Sweden to Jerusalem. The last time he walked to Jerusalem he was walking what he called the ”Latin Route”, this time he will walk the ”Orthodox Route”. He will walk between 30 and 40 kilometers per day. The nights will be spent with people who have a spare sofa to offer him. He will carry a back pack weighing around 24 kg, but there will not be room for food or a tent. The journey is about +8.000 km and will last for 9 months. His feet will get blisters, he will catch colds, he will despair, BUT he will not give up the goal of reaching Jerusalem and raising $8 million to help make Christians’ living conditions a little better in the Holy Land.

Join him, join his team, join other Christians working together to help others!

Stay tuned for further plans along the way!
