A Message from the "R"

“Spirit In The Sky”

I have never felt more humbled than in serving with God’s men of E 181! What I do feels so insignificant in comparison to what everyone else is doing!

After accepting the call, the theme “Spirit In The Sky” came to mind in Philippians 1:21; “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” The Emmaus walk prepares us to carry out, “For to me, to live is Christ.”

In order to get to that place, the weekend progresses in a way that makes us desire to be Christ like and live a life of true discipleship. How the weekend does this through God’s love, led me to our weekend verse: Matthew 6:21; “Where your treasure is, there is your heart.”

On the weekend you can feel “how much more, the Father above, has a heart full of love, for the children that He calls His own.” This kind of love leads us to Prioritize what we need to do and determine where our treasure is! Once there, it becomes your heart’s desire!

God has called a team of men with hearts that desire to serve the Lord! We covet your prayers for the team of E 181 and each pilgrim who has answered the call to walk on E 181!

May God Bless You Indeed,
Tom Geenty aka Lightning
