From the Desk of the Lay Director – Aug 2021

Llano Estacado Emmaus Community

I pray that you all are doing well. May God prosper you and bless you with good health.

The scripture I want to share this month is Psalms 96:1-2, “Sing a new song to the Lord! Sing to the Lord; praise His name. Each day proclaim the good news that He saves.”

I enjoy listening to Christian music. But as far as writing a new song, I don’t think God gave me that talent!! It is all I can do to remember the words of songs I have heard and hit the right note.

Women’s walk #154 was a few weeks ago and from the lady’s testimonies God touched them in a special way. Candlelight was great with a large number that showed up. Closing was awesome and the sponsors were able to watch it on the big screen in the annex. All the sponsors were able to take communion with the pilgrims.

The men’s walks for August and September have been cancelled due to them being so close together. It was decided that we will concentrate on one Men’s walk in October and try to have a full walk. Pray that the Mercy Center can open up without restrictions.

The August Community meeting will be Thursday August 5th at Lakeridge United Methodist Church in the basement at 4701 82nd Street. The babe chick meeting will be a 5:45 pm, with the meal starting at 6 pm and the Community Meeting will be at 7:15 pm. This will be a potluck meal, so please being a dish to share. Come fellowship and worship our Lord and Savior with us. Let’s welcome our new Babe Chicks to our community.
