A Message from the "R"

On the night when I received my invitation to be a Rectora for this weekend I barely finished the conversation and hung up the phone when a song filled my heart. I found myself singing “You Never Let Go” and the weekend theme was born. I had been given the bible verse, Isaiah 41:10 on a piece of palanca a few years earlier and it just stuck with me: “Do not fear for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

God had laid the path for this weekend through my experiences serving him on the mountain. He had strengthened my faith in His promise to always be with me through the calm and through the storms of this life as I shared experiences with team members and pilgrims over the years. God was asking me to pass on this faith of believing Him and His promise, He Never Lets Go.

DeColores, Patty
