Good Morning, Brothers and Sisters in Christ.  I hope this finds you all well.


We have our March gathering coming up next Monday, March 27 at Burnet FUMC.  The meal will be at 6:00 p.m. so bring your favorite dish to share, and the service will be at 7:00 p.m.  This gathering is TEAM COMMISSIONING so if you will be on either of the teams for the coming Men’s Walk, please try to attend.  Our last gathering was awesome and very well-attended – I really hope that this one is even better!  This gathering will also be our last opportunity as a community to say good-bye to Mike and Lorna Olsen as they are preparing to move out-of-state.  What a bittersweet moment as we all love them so much; but we also all want to wish them well on their new adventure!


As of today, we have 16 pilgrims for the Men’s Walk with a month to go.  PLEASE get those applications submitted ASAP so we can be sure this walk can move forward!  We also need all of our community members to sign up for the Prayer Vigil and Agape on the HOTEC website.


SOMETHING NEW:  The Board has diligently tried to improve communication throughout our community this year; however, we’ve been told that several people are still not receiving the emails.  If you hear that from someone, please get me the person’s name and email address so I can make sure they are entered correctly in our database.


We’ve also brought a new communication avenue on board — the ability to send text reminders and communications to our community members, thanks to the diligent efforts of Kelsey Mills.  If you’d like to receive text message notices for Emmaus events, SIGN UP by SENDING YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME IN A TEXT MESSAGE TO 830-745-4642.  


I hope you have a blessed week, and I look forward to seeing you all in Burnet next Monday!
