To the Hearts of the Faithful
Greetings to the members of Greater Findlay Area Emmaus Community. March is just about over and soon we will see the flowers blooming, Trees blossoming and the grass greening. These are all signs of new life and a reminder of the new life we have in Christ Jesus. I am also seeing new life in our community. The Holy Spirit has been actively increasing our numbers of new members and increasing our attendance at Gatherings. Which is absolutely AWESOME!
The Men’s Walk # 80 had 12 new pilgrims and I am very happy that I was able to serve as LOG for the weekend. These men came ready to receive the love of Jesus and experience the Power of the Holy Spirit. I do not believe that any went away without feeling refreshed, renewed and ready to serve God in any way that he would lead them. I want to thank everyone who volunteered their time to serve during the weekend. There was plenty of the help in the kitchen, the prayer vigil was filled up, there was a lot of agape and candlelight was well attended. Nothing was left UN done. Great job “You All”!
At the March Gathering we had an attendance of 121 people and it was amazing. It has been several years since we have had that many in attendance. This another sign that the Holy Spirit is moving in all of you (The Hearts of the Faithful). The women from Walk # 106 were able to meet for the last time for their group reunion and share their Fourth Days. I would encourage these ladies to come back and get involved in the community and help serve others as they have been served.
As I close there is only one thing that we are going to need help with. We are going to have to get several more people trained on how to run St. Mark’s sound and video system. We have relied heavily on Tom Trumpy for many years to take care of this for us. Tom is a great servant and the Community can’t thank him enough. Tom has asked us to get some other people trained and give him some much needed relief. I believe that we need a core group of at least 10 people to get trained on how to run the system. The system is used for Gatherings and on the walks for Candle Light and Closing on Sunday. If we can get this many people to help, then it can be passed around and no one will feel burdened. Please pray and if this is something God puts on your heart please let us know.
As always “Stay in the Spirit”
