GO Team Hikers Needed for Spain

Feb 19, 2005

Are you in reasonably good shape, enjoy long-hiking, want to mix with other cultures, get a good tan, and have opportunity to share your faith?

Our missionaries in Spain have an opportunity for you, and if you don’t speak German or Spanish or French, English will get you by!

A GO Team to northwest Spain is forming for the two weeks of June 24-July 9, 2005. But the application deadline — April 1 — is fast approaching. So don’t dally!

The “Saint James Way” experience will begin with five days in Madrid, where you will hike, learning about Europe and Spain and our missions work there, and will study the Bible and pray.

Then you’ll bus up to beautiful Galicia for a seven-day hike which will follow the “Saint James Way” along the beautiful and popular “French Route” from O’Cebriero to Santiago de Compostela.

You’ll see castles, ancient bridges, make new friends, stop at roadside cafes, and open conversations about life and God. In all, you will hike a total of about 95 miles, averaging approximately 13 miles per day.

You’ll receive a guidebook and instructions, and will hike in groups of 2 or 3, seeking always to not only be a tourist, but also to engage in conversation with the many serious seekers who hike the Saint James Way each year.
