(VALDOSTADAILYTIMES) — NAYLOR – Steve Epp knew what he needed to do.
“The Lord said, take the cross to the street,” Epp said. “This is my church.”
With that message, Epp went to the street, carrying a cross. In the past several weeks, he has trekked through the Carolinas and Georgia.

“I’m enjoying it,” Epp said. “I’m 63, I was a very sick man five years ago, and I said, ‘God, I have to make a mark. I want to change my country.’ We blame our president, and we blame everybody else, but it’s really our fault. The church needs to be out there, and so if nobody else will do it, I will, and it’s been an amazing journey. I can’t even describe it. I thought it’s going to be hard, but it’s been amazing.”
Epp said he is amazed by the charity and hospitality of those in the states he has visited in the past eight weeks.
