ACV MEMBERS: Charles & Jenelle Moore
ACV members and lifelong friends of the village, Charles and Jenelle Moore, share a small piece of their testimony. When Charles' eyesight began to fail, he thought his unspoken dream of hiking the Appalachian Trail was over. After retirement early and undergoing several procedures, his eyesight took a turn for the better. Charles' eyesight was regained and he immediately shared his lifelong dream with his wife, Jenelle. With her support, they began to strategically map out his adventure. This episode holds lots of laughs and a few things we can take away, so grab a good cup of coffee and listen in on the stories of Charles' nearly 6-month journey hiking over 2,000 miles the same year he turned 60 years old.
