"Phil Valentine’s call to walk the Appalachian Trail is a vivid example of moving beyond recovery FROM life-threating illnesses as a means of recovering TO a life of extraordinary possibilities. Thousands of us who have shared the challenges and unexpected gifts from such recovery journeys will be walking in spirit with him.” ~Bill White

Life on the Trail
Phil camped on Black Mountain last night. Woke up in the middle of the night with tummy trouble. Had no clean water, and had to hike into a state park for water and facilities. The crew is hiking back out and hoping to make it to Graymoor Spiritual Life Center, near Peekskill, NY. Please pray for his restored health, and that they can find water along the trail. There have been trail angels in NY who are leaving gallons of water near cross-roads etc.
