WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - A South Carolina man on a spiritual journey to the Grand Canyon traveled through Wichita Falls today.

Acie Burleson, 34, and a father of four, is doing a faith walk, while carrying a 45-pound cross behind him.

He started in his hometown of Andrews, SC, on March 11 and walks about 12 to 20 miles a day.

“God just opened up every avenue and every doorway for me to take this long trip,” Burleson said. “This is a God thing for sure.”

Burleson added his wife and kids have been very supportive, while he makes his journey to spread the word of God.
