Scioto Valley Emmaus

    We had a walk filled with the Holy Spirit!​
I was once asked, "Do you REALLY think God will bless a ministry if it's leaders are not in alignment with His  word?"  My response was, "I'm not going to pretend to know what God will and will not bless, but if you ask me if  He has ever blessed someone who falls short, my response is ABSOLUTELY!"  There is not a day that goes by that  I don't fall short.  Even as this year's Community Lay Director for GSVE, the chairman of it's board of directors, I'm    sure I fell short every day from Sept. 8th - 11th, yet the blessings God bestowed upon our community during that  three days, WW #55, were immeasurable.  Blessings received by the pilgrims, the conference room team, support  teams, prayer warriors, other volunteers, and this simple sinner, rained down like manna from Heaven.  When you  try to predict God, or pigeon-hole Him, be prepared.  Revival, that's what I'm talking about.  Now, we ask you to  think back on your pilgrim walk and remember what a blessing it was to you.  What a wonderful gift your sponsors  gave you.  Please consider passing that same gift on to others.  You can get an application below, get it  completed, turn it in to Carrie North, mail it to P.O.Box 192, Chillicothe 45601, or fax it to 
740-775-6254, and watch the blessings unfold.Thank you, God!
    I pray His Peace, Love and Grace on all of you.
