PE Emmaus News Flash

Of appreciation, appeals and AGMs


As we enjoy the reality of spring and the promise of some rest and relaxation in the coming months, it is time to reflect upon our many blessings as the Port Elizabeth Emmaus Community. You can read the full report of our year to date on the following link www.pe-emmaus.co.za/downloads/file/pdf/cld_report_2017.pdf .

Suffice to say, however, that the Lord blessed us with successful flights and walks and in many other areas, as we continue to strive towards our mission of becoming
 
A vibrant, financially viable Christian Community
offering regular fellowship and other opportunities
before and after full Flights and Walks in growing God’s kingdom

 
Gathering

The post-walk gathering of Walks 69 and 70 at St John’s Church, Walmer, on 14 October, hosted about 180 PE Emmaus Community members. We enjoyed great praise and worship, heard wonderful testimonies and enjoyed the usual fellowship of an Emmaus bring ‘n share lunch.


Walks

As such, many community members signed up there and then to become part of team for Walks 71 and 72 from May 10 – 13 Volunteer(Men with Russell Richards as Lay Director) and May 17 to 20 (Women with Lynn Forman as Lay Director).

With 18 women and 16 men already committed to work, please apply soonest to serve by going to https://www.pe-emmaus.co.za/teams.php  The cost is R950. Training on 14 and 15 April and on 21 April is compulsory.  


Donations

We continue to knock at the door of your finances in growing tFundraisinghe monthly pledges that we receive to enable the growth of the Emmaus ministry. Many of us are unlikely to miss R50 a month, and so we are appealing to you to consider a monthly stop order to:
                Standard Bank 383 707 145
                Walmer Park 29681
                PE Emmaus Community

The PE Community will be sending a tithe to the national body, and also supporting #EmmausGives and #Giving Tuesday on 28 November in line with the Lord’s call to give, and to do so, gladly. The #Giving Tuesday initiative goes directly towards the establishment of new Emmaus Ministry communities around the globe.


AGM

The PE Emmaus Community held its AGM on 14 October, announcing three new Board appointments from January 2018:  We express our appreciation to Erica Sing Key, Hilary Viljoen and Lynn Forman for their unstinting commitment, talent and service to the Board over the past three years. They will continue to work on the sub-committees in a mentoring capacity towards ensuring continuity.

On the subject of AGMs, please pray for the forthcoming national EMSA AGM hosted by the Gloriosa Community from November 2 to 5 in Benoni. The PE Emmaus Community will host this event in 2019, when we turn 20.

And finally ….

CLD Annual Report

With a set of successful Flights (the first in two years), a set of successful Walks, seven fellowship and fundraising events, the introduction of surveys to get a better understanding of challenges and improved communication initiatives, we can be pleased with our efforts for 2017. We are ever mindful however that none of this would have happened without the Grace of God – He made the impossible possible ( … when you have just five pilgrim applications a week before cut off etc.)
