The Treasure Hunt


Geocaching has quickly become a popular high-tech way to hunt treasure. Participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) Receiver and to seek and hide containers of "treasures". The typical treasure found is a water proof container containing just about anything you can imagine (books, jewelry, etc.). It is estimated that close to a million treasures are waiting to be found in over 100 countries across the world. Those participating typically use websites that announce the treasure's location via the GPS coordinates. You can find out what kind of treasures are waiting in your town by placing your zip code in the official Geocaching website.

Greg, from Colorado, and a great friend to Ten-Four Ministries and host of a Ten-Four Missionary trip last year had a great idea. A friend of his is active in Geocaching and Greg has given him Ten-Four Challenge Coins to use as treasure. Often times, treasures are obtained and placed back out for others to find. The possibility is endless of what one coin could do for the Glory of God.

What a great way to evangelize. Thanks Greg for the awesome idea.
