Our local Emmaus Community will be hosting a Men's Walk to Emmaus this weekend, October 19-22, 2023 at Light on the Hill at Mount Wesley. This special weekend is designed to help Christian disciples grow in knowledge and experience of God's grace and love.
If you are in the Emmaus Community we encourage you to support the Walk throughout the weekend with your prayers and when appropriate, your presence. For all of us, we encourage you to hold these folks in your prayers throughout this experience.

Harvest Festival this Fall!
From our friend, Jane Davis…
I am praying for you this morning…
Thanks to our daughter, daughter-in-law and grandkids, I’ve learned to love puzzles.
Life is often like a puzzle…right?!
You have a box of hundreds of colorful pieces. You pour them out…flip them over…and oh my!
You don’t know how or where to start. You sort. You look at the finished picture on the box and think, “how in the world will I put all of this together?”
But GOD WILL.
We all have choices to make…decisions to be made…
But sometimes the parts of our lives seem so jumbled, broken, confusing and disjointed that we can’t focus on the the big picture…the completed project…the direction we should go.
This is where God steps in.
If we let Him.
We all need to ask the Master Planner, our Creator to put the pieces into place.
Little-by-little the colors will get sorted. The edges will start fitting together. Your answer will more and more visible.
God’s got this! Trust Him.
“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’” Isaiah 30:21
Thanks to all that joined us in our March MEGA Food drive, and always thank you to the San Antonio Food Bank.
I am praying for you this morning…
Awhile back I was given my Dad’s old baseball glove. As I study it, I first notice how worn it is…lots of baseballs went “thud” in that glove.
And then as I look again, I notice that there are only 4 fingers on this glove! Huh? Daddy had 5 fingers. Why 4 on this weathered old mitt?
Do you ever feel like something is missing in your life? Is it strength? Confidence? Courage? Endurance? Assurance? Love? Hope? Peace? Joy?
Back to the aged, 4-finger glove…
Possibly, since our “baby finger” is the weakest part of our hand, having 2 fingers together gives added strength and support to grip the ball.
This is like one person helping another…walking the journey with them. Like God walking with us, giving us strength and support for our upward climbs. Like helping us grip the hard balls in life when they go “thud”.
“Two people are better than one, for they can help each other succeed.”
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you may go.”
The mission of Emmaus is to empower leaders to be the hands and feet of Christ. The Walk to Emmaus is a spiritual renewal experience intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. We were blessed to host the Koinonia group out of Hondo and Lakehills this past Thursday through Sunday at Light on the Hill at Mount Wesley. Our campus was joyful with the sound of people praying, praising, listening, learning, eating, and sleeping. This was our first Walk to Emmaus to host in two and a half years due to the pandemic.
We are so grateful to all of the unpaid servants who worked so faithfully for the last two years to clean, paint, put in new flooring, replace old electrical and plumbing fixtures so that we have a nice, fresh sleeping rooms for our guests.
We are so grateful to all of the unpaid servants who helped prep, cook, and serve delicious food throughout the retreat. We have a fantastic servant-hearted food ministry team! I hope you will prayerfully consider joining us. It is a great group!
We have five more Walks to Emmaus scheduled for 2022, at Light on the Hill at Mount Wesley that we are very excited about! We are also encouraged by a new spirit of renewal for hosting Hill Country Emmaus Walks in the near future! We will keep you posted.
Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement as we continue the rich tradition of transformation of lives at Mount Wesley!
