From the Board

– – November 15, 2019 – –

Greetings, Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

God is good – ALL THE TIME; Yes, all the time GOD IS GOOD!

   Thank you again for your support and consistently “stepping-up” as the need has arisen.

   We continued with record numbers of Pilgrims as we ended our Walk season. A big “shout-out” to the Pilgrim sponsors, Walk Teams, and the Community that supported them. The SPIRIT continues to move in powerful ways in our Community! What a blessing it is to be part of a Community that serves the Lord! We continue to rejoice and thank God for the servant hearts of our awesome Community!

   We experimented with conducting special DODU’s this year for those who could not attend the scheduled one on the Tuesday following the Walk. This resulted in additional recent pilgrims being able to sponsor. Additionally, we have been discussing partnering with Richmond EMMAUS as we move forward in faith to restart our Chrysalis program. We still welcome those who feel a calling to this ministry to contact myself (Slip or Keith Ellis ( The Lord is answering our prayers, and doors are opening.

   As we celebrate Thanksgiving & Christmas and prepare to begin the New Year; blessings, hope, inspiration, and renewal come to mind. Some faith groups, churches, and Christian communities will conduct renewal services at the end of the year. It is good to reflect on those challenges we have overcome and blessings we have enjoyed with the fellowship of Christian brothers and sisters and through the grace of Christ.

   Whether you’ve just walked through the greatest year of your life, or are incredibly glad to see this one finally over, remember you are not alone. Not ever. Our God is a “with us” God, and our God never changes.

   I would like to challenge you to look at the concept of renewal and what aspects of your life may require renewal. Some of those things were highlighted in the Talks you heard on your Walk. Remember your Walk and what it meant to you. Remember that every believer is a minister, with a “MISSION” of building up the body of Christ. That came from the heart of Jesus. It is His idea.

De Colores!
