A Message from the "R"

Proverbs 3: 5 and 6. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”

As Christians, we always want to please God with our choices but we don't always know God's will for us. In Proverbs we are told to trust in Him. Surrender our will for His. For many, that is hard to do. We live in difficult times and it is not always as we thought it would be. The burdens become heavy to bear, but there is hope in God's promises. We do not have to carry life's burdens alone.

Our weekend song is "Lean on Me" and says "you can call on me brother when you need a hand". Our weekend theme is "Trust in the Lord". It is God's will that we acknowledge Him in all ways and He will make our paths straight (obvious). Pilgrims will come to E-177 from all walks of life, some with heavy burdens, and in various stages of their walk with Jesus. An Emmaus weekend shows pilgrims God's grace, forgiveness, and His amazing love for us. The men of E-177 will also find a community of brothers to lean on.

God has blessed the team of E-177. Our teaming is well underway as we prepare to serve God by serving the pilgrims that He will send. We also seek your blessings through continuous prayer and support.
