DALLAS -

A 19-year-old from Saginaw began his journey to the nation's capitol on Thursday. He plans to walk there with the weight of a cross on his shoulders.

Junior Garcia from The Oasis Church plans to walk roughly 12 hours per day for the next five weeks to draw the attention of America back to the cross of Jesus Christ, according to Pastor Randy Lemme.

A support team will follow him on foot and on a cart and bus. They'll help shield him from traffic, especially on busy highways.

Once Garcia arrives in Washington, a prayer service will be held at the White House.

His journey will also raise money for Speed the Light, an Assembly of God Missions giving program that will buy a car for a missionary in Mexico, Lemme said.
