From the Desk of the Lay Director – Mar. 2021

Hello Llano Emmaus Community,

I pray you had a wonderful weekend. I know for sure the Women and men on Women’s walk 156 had a wonderful weekend. According to their testimonies at closing, God touched them in a special way.  

The scripture I want to share is Psalm 18: 1-2.  “I will love You, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom will I trust; My shield and the horn (strength) of my salvation, my stronghold.

At candlelight, during the song service, we had a lady collapse. There were two ladies in the audience that were EMTs and they started working with her. They could not find a radial pulse in her wrist. Chris stepped up and lead us in prayer for her. The ambulance came and took her to the hospital. We were blessed that the ambulance was gone when the pilgrims came over. The EMTs came to me later and told us that as soon as we prayed her radial pulse came up. They said they have never seen that happen before. We got a report on her yesterday at closing and she was home recovering. God hears and answers our prayers.

It has been a year since I have done a candlelight and closing and the last one I did was when Karen Cox was the Community Lay Director. That was considered “practice” and it appears that the practice helped as I made it through with only one blunder. But I felt the presence of God at all activities that I attended.

Are you ready for our Community Meeting? It is Thursday March 4th at Broadway Church of Christ, 1924 Broadway at 7pm. No meal at this time. Please come and worship with us and enjoy the fellowship.

Ladies of Women’s Walk 156, please go to our facebook page and ask to join. The page is Llano Estacado Chrysalis/Emmaus Community. Please come to this website for information on Community Meetings and Walks. I hope to see you Thursday March 4th at the babe chick meeting and our Community Meeting.

Our next walk is March 11th through 14th. If you have pilgrims, please get them sponsored and start praying for this women’s walk. Just looking at the calendar, that Sunday will be the change to daylight savings time, so the ladies will not only be tired from the weekend but will also loose an hours sleep. 

We have had several say that they want to get back involved with our Emmaus Community. So, get ready, we are coming back stronger than ever by the grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.   

I pray that the God will bless you in a mighty way and that His love and grace and peace will surround you. I pray that you will prosper and be in health.
