Christian Teen Junior Garcia Carrying Cross From Texas to Washington, DC
A 19-year-old college student from Texas has embarked on a cross-country journey to draw attention to Jesus Christ, saying he believes God put it in his heart to carry a 12-foot cross from his home to the gates of the White House.
"I'm not trying to be Christ. I'm not trying to act like I'm Jesus. I'm not even trying to live up to that," Junior Garcia told KDFW-TV. "All I'm doing is carrying the cross to show his love, that's all I'm doing."
He added, "Jesus has already carried the cross - that's not what I'm trying to do. I'm just trying to show his love and remind people of who he is and the salvation you can have through Jesus Christ."

Garcia, who is studying to become a physician's assistant, has been on his journey for about 11 days, as documented by photos on the Facebook page of his home congregation in Saginaw, The Oasis Church, members of whom are accompanying him on the nationwide walk.
Although Garcia's father said he was apprehensive when he first learned of his son's plans, he prayed about it and decided to have faith in God.
