"Bible man" walking across nation for a purpose

By Christie Post - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – One man, with his wagon and bible, is trekking across the nation, on foot, trying to do his part to make a difference. "I'm not news, they tell me I'm 2,000 years out of date," says Michael Stuckey.

We caught up with Michael Stuckey about one mile west of Crosbyton on Hwy 62/82 on his journey. Stuckey walks for a purpose he says it's all because of God. "The lord told me to pick up where Paul left off and do it Paul's way," says Stuckey.

He started seven and a half years ago in New York, from there he ventured through Indiana across to Illinois. Stuckey says he's been to 19 different states, walked 27,300 miles and has been up and down the east coast ten times. He says he waits for God to tell him where he's going next.

"Probably he will wither tell me to turn on 62 to go north or I go to Lubbock get on the loop and go south. I've been 87 one time before, it's been about three year, so it's time for me to get back down in Lubbock," says Stuckey.

And with the waters around him he will never thirst. He takes his Bible, preaches the versus and says the rest will come. He says in one town a man bought him new tires for his wagon. "I went to the tire place and it turns out this man had told the place to put the tires on his ticket, but that's the way God provides for me. I don't have an income," says Stuckey.

And he often sleeps outside. This is a journey of a lifetime with no regrets. "I'm ready to get on 87 and go to Brady or Lampasas," says Stuckey.
