Chrysalis Sep 2017

Good evening community,

Can you believe September is upon us? As I sit on the back porch, I am once again reflecting on this past year as Chrysalis LD. What a wonderful tool God has provided us with Emmaus. The main goal of Emmaus is to make stronger Christians, and for them to plug into the “Church,” thus making a stronger Church.

That’s all fine and dandy, but we’re losing out on our pilgrims/caterpillars. They get so involved in the”Church”, they do not have the time for Emmaus. Forgetting what placed them there in the first place. Basically we are losing out on volunteers to serve on teams, board=s, and community.

This past weekend on Young Women’s #41, there were actually 3 “new” clergy, which is awesome!! New blood to help the “regulars” out. If I offend, I am sorry, but I have never been a good PC person, so here I go.

Agape Love – to me that means “serve for others, nothing less”. If you want self recognition then you are doing it for the wrong reasons, and basically we don’t need you. This past year has been hard for me, because I prefer the behind the scenes. I like watching God work on the pilgrims, and team.

It’s amazing what can get accomplished if we just get out of God’s way, and let Him work. To be on the board, or team, should be the main rule. If you are in it for anything other than to honor God, then you are in it for the wrong reasons.

With that being said, we have some Chrysalis Flights coming up: Young Men #33 with Dustin Johnson on September 14-17; Young Ladies #42 with Ashdon Hancock on January 4-7, 2018; Young Men’s #34 with Ryan Rathman on May 3-6, 2018. Please lift these flights up in prayer. If you feel led to help with Chrysalis, by all means come on. As you can tell, they’re not all that picky, look at me.

One more note as I continue to scatter shoot my way through this letter. Chrysalis caterpillars are all scholarshipped, as well as college age team members. To provide these scholarships, we have a fundraiser dinner. This year’s dinner will be December 9, 2017 at the Bayer museum. The meal will be a steak, pork loin, or prime rib, your choice, with sides. We will also be hosting a raffle for several items. Watch for details in upcoming newsletters and community meetings.

Thanks again for your time and help with Chrysalis, this year. Vaya con Dios.

Continue to”fly with Christ”
