A Message from the "R"

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)

The theme of E-176 is “Unstoppable Love”. I feel this truly captures the essence of God’s love for us: unfailing, everlasting and unstoppable.

Our theme song, Unstoppable Love by Jesus Culture, has a verse that I love. It states: “God you pursue me with power and glory, Unstoppable Love that never ends.” How amazing is it that the same God that created the entire universe and all of creation, pursues each and every one of us with that same very power and glory?

The team of E-176 is amazing and I am honored to be part of these sisters in Christ (including our pseudo sister, SD Gary) as we prepare for the 30 pilgrims that have answered the call to walk. We covet your prayers, love, and support as we embark up the mountain March 10 – 13, 2016 to experience God’s Unstoppable Love. ~ DeColores with a sprinkling of peace & love, Laura Newberry
