The Reverend Daniel Garcia has walked for children and world peace on five continents for more than 20 years. When he took his first steps in 1996 toward a personal commitment to peace, he could scarcely fathom that he would continue walking globally more than 27,000 miles, more than the circumference of the earth. His life long pursuit of peace began as a child and continues today
"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners"
