A 378-pound pastor from Wausau, Wisconsin has decided he is going to walk to Florida to raise money for the Jesus Care Center in Pensacola, FL and for the Salvation Army.
The Rev. Travis Russ of Victory Family Worship Center in Mosinee, Wis., acknowledges his size has people questioning his plan, but he expects his bulk to attract even more attention to the cause.
He said God gave him the idea for the walk, given the plight of so many hurricane victims, especially children. “I prayed about it, and I knew that (God) was working something within me.”
Sort of makes me question this whole “wisdom of God” thing. The real reason any guy would walk to Florida from Wisconsin has to do with winter I think.
Seeing as how I’m only a 175-pound pastor, me walking to Florida would not be impressive so I think God has told me that everyone should give me Oreo cookies so that I can become a 378-pound pastor and then I can walk to Texas. Come on now, you don’t want to let down God. Where’s my cookies? Don’t you have faith?
