Jay and Debbie Hocking, who have just completed a year as host couple at the Chateau St. Albain in France with Grace Brethren International Missions, are off on an 81-day walk of the St. James Way between France and Spain.
The blog of Rob and Nichole Plaster notes that the Hockings’ “last known where-a-bouts was the Rue Saint Jacques, Paris, France, at 10:15 am Wednesday August, 30th.
“After hearing our intriguing tales of pilgrimage, this adventurous couple decided to head off on their own journey of spiritual reflection. Their quest is to walk from the famous Saint Jacques tower in Paris to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
“Ours may have been the last official sighting of this couple on their trip which they hope to complete in 81 days,” say the Plasters, noting that Saint Jacques is the French translation of Saint James and the tower is so named because it is historically the starting point for pilgrims heading to Santiago which is simply the Spanish name for Saint James.
