From the Desk of the Lay Director – Jan 2021

Hello Llano Estacado Emmaus Community.

Well, it is the beginning of a new year and I am looking forward to a new beginning.  Even though Covid-19 is still prevalent, I am believing that it is on the way out.  I hope your Christmas was a wonderful time as we celebrated our Savior’s birth.  We celebrated with just Bonnie and I, but it was really special.  I am kind of getting bored with Hallmark movies though.  

I want to share a scripture I have shared before because it still holds true today.  Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not for I am with you:  Be not dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you.

The board decided that with several circumstances involved, we have moved the January Men’s walk to February 18th -21st.  The Women’s walk is still February 25th-28th.  Please get your pilgrims notified and signed up for these walks.  There is a Kairos Outside weekend on April 9th -11.  If you know a lady that has been affected by incarceration, please get them signed up for this weekend.  Please be in prayer for these weekends events that God will touch lives again through our Emmaus Community.

We have reached our goal of $5000.00 and will be sending the final check with a matching amount from the Emmaus Community to make a total donation of $10,000.00.  Thanks so much to all who donated to meet this goal to help the Mercy Center through this trying time.  

We have cancelled the January Community meeting due to Churches are still not letting us use their facilities and the few that are, we do not want to abuse that privilege.  Looking forward to a February Community meeting when we can again worship together.  

May God richly bless each one of you!!
