Annie Hu

Hello hello! I’m Annie Hu from Malaysia, currently residing in New Jersey as an Au Pair. I am extremely excited about walking with the Missionaries of the Eucharist. This would be an impossible feat if I were in Malaysia as it is mainly an Islamic country and the government is not entirely open to other religious organization evangelizing the public. I truly hope that this experience will help bring people around me (and me myself) closer to Christ and His love for mankind. I am sure the walk would generate a lot of interest from my friends, both in the United States and Malaysia, and hopefully would cultivate a desire to learn more about the Theology of the Body.

This will be my first experience walking with the MoE and boy am I thrilled. I am excited about being a very obvious and visible witness as a Catholic – how often do you find a group of young adults walking in blue t-shirts, carrying the Vatican flag and the Crucifix? I am excited to spread and share the love and hope that the Catholic Church has for all people. I am also looking forward towards the conversation of my heart and soul as start this journey. Do pray for our safety, both physically and spiritually.

Who we are?

Every summer we, the Missionaries of the Eucharist, are walking from Lewiston, Maine to Washington, DC to proclaim the beauty of the Catholic faith to everyone we meet, specifically through the Theology of the Body.

Conversion begins in our own hearts,which is why prayer is so important to our ministry. For this reason, everyday of our ten week walk begins with daily Mass. By receiving Christ in the Eucharist, we are given the grace to be the Love of Christ not only to those in our community but also to those we meet in the streets.

We walk throughout the day to be a witness of love. We are grounded in prayer-we pray with our lips, our hearts, and our bodies. In walking an average of twenty-five miles per day, we offer our fatigue as a gift of love to Christ and the people we meet. Our walking is both sacrifice and prayer.
