Friends of Barnabas volunteer Kyle Kirby is getting ready for an excellent adventure. Kyle is hiking the entire Appalachian Trail - all 2,190 miles of it, from Georgia to Maine, in honor of Friends of Barnabas.
He starts tomorrow, February 10, Ash Wednesday. Another wonderful FOB volunteer, Ronnie Dillon, will be hiking with Kyle for the first three days.
I spoke to Kyle and Ronnie and they are already on their way, driving down to the start of the trail at Springer Mountain, Georgia. They will stay overnight tonight at a hostel near the trail, and will be shuttled to it tomorrow morning. They hope to be walking by 9 AM.
Thanks to Kyle and his amazing heart and commitment to do this, we have raised nearly $20,000 for the children in Honduras.
