Chrysalis Jan. 2017

Good evening Llano Emmaus community. It has been a whirlwind of activities since I last reported.

The fundraiser dinner was a huge success. There are not enough words to express the outpouring of Agape Love given to the fundraiser. We raised over $14,000 in meal and raffle tickets. A heart felt thank you to the supporters of this worthy cause, and to the support group that tirelessly gave of yourselves serving the meals.

With that being said, as I peck away on the keyboard, we have a young ladies flight upcoming in 48 hours. Being led by Kelli Cool, we are at the minimum number of caterpillars so there is room for several more. Its all FREE, so get out and sponsor someone.

Also the young men’s walk is next weekend and it’s being led by Milton Schober. There is PLENTY of room for some young men. So far no one has signed up. So community now is the time to get out and beat the bushes for some caterpillars, remember it’s all FREE.

At Abernathy First United Church, we started a series of sermons based on our New Year’s resolutions. The series is titled ” One Word Resolution.” Pick one word out of the bible as your resolution. My word hit me between the eyes, as I was l pondering the sermon. That word is taken out of James 1:4 “Let PERSEVERANCE finish it’s work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything”. The verses go on, and it gets pretty interesting from there. Basics for asking God, but you must believe in your asking’s, with no doubt.

As the new season is upon us, what will you ask God for and are you disciplined enough to accept that challenge? James 1:6 “But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind”
