Letter from Emmaus community LD

Greetings Community!
The weekends are upon us and the Holy Spirit is moving in the lives of so many people.
I hope that you already have begun praying and will continue to pray for our new Butterflies and Community Members. Every weekend calls for all of us to step to the plate and fill the camps with your presence, agape gifts, service, and support.  It goes without saying that everyone should be pouring out their prayers as well. Please don't forget to come to the sendoffs, candlelights and closings.  It's also very important that we encourage our new butterflies and community members and keep their excitement levels high and their 4th Days flourishing.
May God's blessings continue to flow over the NCWV Emmaus/Chrysalis Community.
G'na Stephens
Community Lay Director
