Hans Mullikin is taking his message to Washington on his knees. The 37-year-old Baplist evangelist is crawling the 1,220 miles to the nation's capital to show his concern for America's spiritual condition. Mullikin, who says he wants to get the nation on "her knees before God," had Hie idea for the trip while counseling friends about three years ago. "I asked the Lord what to do and said T would be willing to crawl to Dallas for an answer," he said. Mullikin began his crawl towards Washington Monday along the median of Interstate 20. A group of friends singing "Amazing Grace" gathered to see him off. Along the way he hopes to crawl quickly enough to celebrate the nation's 200th birth- da)' in Lynchburg, Va., with the students and faculty of Liberty Baptist College. But before he had a chance to develop callouses the small cart he is pulling behind him needed repairs and so it was back home with the Ixuisiana border almost within sight. After crawling for eight hours a day Monday and Tuesday at a pace of about a half mile per hour Mulllkin was picked up hy his parents and driven home. Each morning they return him to the spot where they picked him up. Once he reaches Shreveport, La., he will be out of the nest and will sleep wherever he receives offers. His original "buggy," a modified golf cart holding a walkie-talkie, change of clothes and religious material, proved too hard to drag. He and a church friend Wednesday finished a sturdier mode and Mullikin set off again. Cars and trucks stop along the freeway at the sight of the median crawler.
