Newsletter - February 2008

What a privilege and pleasure for the Board members to welcome one and all into a brand new year in fellowship with Jesus and with each other.   A brand new year in  which to see God’s Hand at work, to see stepping stones  rather than stumbling blocks and to be Blessed to be a Blessing.

Isaiah 43:16-19
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up;   do you not see it?
I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.

The folk on the Board during 2008, with God’s help, will be serving you with dedication and love.  Please feel free to approach any one should the need arise to bring something
to the Board for consideration.  

Brother, sister, let us serve you, let us be as Christ to you.

Meet your Board on page 9 of this publication …:

To all those members of our Emmaus family whose children
wrote and passed end-of-year examinations,

May your children be blessed in abundance in the year ahead, and may they continue to discover the Hand of God
in their lives and studies.


Since our Emmaus community has grown so tremendously, praise the Lord, it has become impossible to replicate the newsletter for everyone.  Thus, it goes out on e-mail, and we humbly ask those who have computers to print a copy or two for those whom you know do not.  In this way as many as possible can be reached.

Sponsoring someone for the next Walks?
Some guidelines, in brief:


Blessings …
to all our Emmaus family members celebrating
birthdays and anniversaries during the months
of January, February and March.
May you be blessed with good health,
peace and the Joy of the Lord.

Emmaus Walks #37 and #38

Remember how awesome and emotionally delightful it was on your own pilgrim Walk when members of the community, family and friends …

.. a  very special time for all pilgrims.  

You can do the same for the next pilgrims.  
So why not come along, make it special for them.  
See you there!  
Even better ... sponsor someone ... and then be there!

Participate ...
 There are various ways of participating on Walks, even if you are not on team or unable to get there:


Did you know ...? ... there is a ‘Bring and share’ PARTY for all community members who attend Saturday night Candlelight,  in the Diningroom at Sumcay, -  every Walk!?  This is a super opportunity to bring some yummy finger things to share, and something to drink, and meet with members of the community.  You may find some who were at your Table on your pilgrim Walk, or meet some you never knew were Emmaus-ítes.

It is a great experience, so come prepared, and after Candlelight, instead of hanging around outside the Chapel – where silence is imperative -  dash over to the Diningroom and chatter all you want.

Please attend, but PLEASE REMEMBER to clean up afterwards!!!
(This will be your agape gift to the teams working on the Walk.)  These Teams do not have the time to clear away community leftover foods or unwashed plates or glasses.  They have their hands full with clearing up after the pilgrim party, and heading for only a few hours sleep before Las Mananitas.   THANKS for your co-operation.  C U there!!
