Student carries cross across state on spiritual journey

Posted: Updated:

A Georgia Highlands student is carrying a large handmade cross on his shoulder across the state and says he was called by God to do it.

John Bessis started his spiritual journey Sunday in Rome, GA and plans to walk to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Bessis is dressed like Jesus in a long white robe carrying a large hand made cross on his shoulder. He walks along U.S. 27 and stops for those who want to sign his cross.

Bessis says he will rely on the kindness of strangers as he makes this journey and lives off the land.
