    At 16, a car accident triggered Justin's autoimmune disease and now he is wheelchair-bound, but that hasn't stopped "The Disabled Traveler" from seeing the world and inspiring others to do the same.

    Rocky Terrain

    The Camino is full of hills and valleys, mountains, but the two got help from strangers who quickly became friends along the way.

    It's All About Community

    Patrick tells Guideposts.org: "Having all those individuals that helped carry us to the finish line was a demonstration of the power that God has when people respond to those they see in need. That's the beauty of community and the need that we have to live in community with others. We’re all God’s hands and feet. His spirit is alive and well through those who are obedient and want to see the Kingdom intersect with lives, right here, right now."
