A Message from the WLD

It is the first week of April as I sit down to write this and spring is popping out all over. As God shows, all things are becoming new again, much like our redemption in Christ, for he wipes our slate clean. I feel honored and blessed to have been chosen to serve as WLD on E-127. I made my walk in March of 1993 on E-51 and since then I have been blessed many times over on Emmaus and Chrysalis weekends and through all of the community members as well.

Already as you may have guessed, prayers are going out for the team God will choose as well as the pilgrims who will walk on this last weekend of 2005. The theme of the weekend is “ He Reigns On High” because He is ABOVE ALL else. One of my favorite books of the Bible is James. This short book, only five chapters, has an amazing amount of insight and wisdom in it. One of my favorite bible verses is Philippians 4:13- “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. I try to put Christ first in all I do, but fail over and over again because I’m not perfect. None of us are. But we have a gracious and merciful God who loves us, despite all of our misgivings. He knows we are not perfect yet He calls us, just as we are, to be His servants. And we will serve the pilgrims of E-127. We will humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord so that we can let His light shine through us!

Please keep the weekend of E-127 in your prayers. Pray that we put God first and seek His wisdom in all the decisions we must make, to keep all of the team healthy and strong and be united as one brotherhood of warriors as we put on the armor of God, so we may serve the pilgrims of E-127. And most of all, pray for the men who will walk on this weekend-that their eyes may see and ears may hear the wonderful message God will have for them on this weekend.

Blessings and love to all,
