Men's Walk #74 – October 17-20, 2013
Lay Director: Ted Lemmond
Vice Director: Gene Tracy
Theme: All for Jesus
Song: "All for Jesus"
My name is Ted Lemmond and I started my experience in this community over 15 years ago. I’ve served in many areas, and especially as a member of the music team on both the Walk to Emmaus and then later on the Chrysalis retreats. Music is a very important part of the Emmaus experience for me. I love to sing praises to the Lord. I love to worship Him. As a result, I have selected one of the most moving songs that I have sung to the Lord as my theme for this retreat. In the song ‘Jesus, All for Jesus’ it states that ‘All of my ambitions, hopes and plans, I surrender to your hands’ and that ‘only in Your will that I am free’. For me, these words say it all. As a result, ‘All for Jesus’ is the theme for the weekend and ‘Jesus, all for Jesus’ is my theme song.
On October 18th, the 74th Walk to Emmaus for the Oregon Trails chapter will commence. I pray that all will come and experience a weekend that is designed to give an ‘All for Jesus’ experience.
Women's Walk #74 – November 7-10, 2013
Lay Director: Lisa Budnik
Vice Director: Jeri Sawyer
Theme: Joy in the Lord
Song: "I Will Never Be (the same again)"
Hi, my name is Lisa Budnik, Women's Lay Director for Walk #74. Since making my Walk fifteen years ago, I had hoped that some day I would get the opportunity to serve as lay director. For the last several years; however, involvement with my teenagers' activities was my priority, so entertaining the idea of lay director wasn't an option. I even chose a very low profile overall within the Emmaus community. After five years and being a new empty nester, I'm back now and thrilled to serve. While I've been away, I've done a lot of reflection and realized my whole outlook on life changes when I have Joy in the Lord. During this Walk I hope that our team with Christ's help will be able to shower the pilgrims with so much love that they will experience Joy in the Lord! Can you tell that "Joy in the Lord" will be our theme? The Bible tells us over and over that we will find joy in the Lord who gives us strength when we believe in Him. "I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength" ~ Habakkuk 3 : 18 – 19 NIV Our song is "I Will Never Be the Same Again" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yptnKmsVmgo&feature=related. It is fitting for the Emmaus experience because no one is ever the same after their Walk, don't you agree? I encourage you to start thinking now about who you want to experience Joy in the Lord and I will look forward to serving with many of you as sponsors and team members.
