Chrysalis – October 2013

Prime Rib DinnerIt is my honor to now accept the reins from Roan Cowan and officially take over all responsibilities as Lay Director of the Chrysalis Community. Roan’s service is highly appreciated and I’m proud to continue to work along side her as we go about serving you and the future caterpillars we’ve yet to meet. Thank you Roan for your hard work and attention to detail. I can’t imagine trying to meet some of our challenges this year without your experienced insight and ability to be flexible.

September was yet another extremely busy month for our Chrysalis Community with two more college journeys under our belt and planning underway for another eventful year. A huge shout out to Steffanie Dayton and Mark Miller for doing an exemplary job by stepping up to the challenge of Lay Directorship and leading the charge with the hearts of humble servants. We saw much fruit from these walks in the form of salvations, rededications, and life transformations that will assuredly continue to impact our local area and beyond.

Kim Smith has graciously accepted the Lay Directorship for our college girls Chrysalis on January 9-12, so please keep her in prayer as her team begins to form and caterpillars begin to sign up.

Also, the 3rd Annual Prime Rib Fundraising Dinner has been rescheduled from the 7th of December to the 14th of December at the Animal Science Building at Texas Tech. Tickets should be available soon and we want to encourage you all to be a part of this event. The proceeds from this fundraiser go straight to the scholarship fund that helps share the Chrysalis experience with those who can’t afford it.

1 Corinthians 15:57-58 “But thanks be to God! He gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your Labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

Fly with Christ,
