posted Dec 30, 2013, 10:35 AM by Noahs Emmaus

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

            Greetings and Happy New Year!  I trust each of you celebrated the birth of our Savior surrounded with family and friends!

            As 2013 comes to an end, I reflect on the goodness of God throughout our Emmaus Community. We, as a community and Board, experienced many challenges, blessings, and oppositions.  Changes came quickly this year as did some struggles, but your Board stood firm together and we persevered, stood firm in our faith and trusted that God would do what God does best, take care of all things.  The four walks were awesome as all walks are and Jehovah Jirah provided all that we needed and blessed us with more of His abundance.

You and I experienced His grace in a fresh, new way, and now we move forward to 2014 knowing that God truly blessed 2013 and will continue to bless us as a community of faithful believers ready and willing to be obedient servants and stewards as He calls us.  Our scheduled walks are rising to a level of such excitement that it’s becoming difficult not to anticipate.  I urge each you that if you have not signed up to work one of these walks, please go to our website and put your name in to work.  This is a blessing you will not want to miss. Again, the walk fee has been decreased to $160 for team members and pilgrims.

I want to give God praise for providing such a powerful Board in 2013, as they assisted me with such wisdom, discernment, and tackling the tasks that were given to each of us.  Your Board never wavered but sought God’s direction for each and every decision that was made. To God be the glory.  Your Board thanks you for your support, your prayers, and your love for this year. Just knowing your were there giving of yourselves with these things only made us stronger and more determined to make our Community stronger than ever before.

I have been so abundantly blessed as being your Chairman for 2013 and it has humbled me knowing that God gives His direction and we just follow Him.  I look forward with extreme excitement to see what God has for us as a Community. We move forward knowing we have the abounding grace of God!

The elections are over and these names will serve with our new Chairman of the Board, Kathy McLeod.  Charlie Owen (Central), Cheryl Allen (Northeast), Paul Butler (Northwest), Burt Ragland (Southeast), and Dianne Schoemaker (Southwest).  Please continue to pray for your Board and as they lead us into a new year!

I pray special blessings over each of you that as God leads us to serve Him we will continue to be sensitive to His calling and be His obedient servants! 

            Happy New Year and may you each receive abundant blessings from our Heavenly Father!



            Your brother in Christ,
