                                 Letter from Men’s Walk # 40 Lay Director

I would like to thank my Heavenly Father and also the Emmaus board for the opportunity to serve as Lay
Director for W.V.W.E #40. The Lord blessed me with an awesome team, they were all willing to step up and
do what was asked of them during formation in order to prepare God's team for the weekend. The team showed
the love of Christ to the pilgrims and great friendships bloomed. Thank You team for a job well done. God
poured out his spirit through you and through the pilgrims. All you men served with humility and were humble
servants, God Bless You and Your Families. The fourth day support was awesome also, thank you for your
willingness to serve with an attitude of anonymous servant hood, through sponsorship, candlelight, prayer vigil
warriors, agape, kitchen and dining help, chapel, camp cleanup, Emmaus Board, and any other fourth day that
helped in anyway. Without you the Emmaus Walks could not happen, keep up the good job and may God Bless
You Abundantly. I would like to welcome the new fourth day to our Emmaus Community. Serving you during
the weekend was an honor and truly blessed my heart. We all look forward to visiting with you and your
families at the gatherings and future walks. I will be praying for all of you as you continue your fourth day
journey. Thank You and God Bless You One and All! May the love of Jesus Christ shine ever so brightly from
each of you. Remember Christ is counting on YOU!         DeColores
In Christian Love

                              Letter from Chrysalis Community Lay Director

  On behalf of the Chrysalis Board and the Chrysalis 4th Day community I want to extend a Welcome to the
    new 4th Day of Emmaus Walk #40. We have been praying that your 72 hr Emmaus Walk would be an
  opportunity to experience God's Grace and Love in a new and special way, and that through this experience
                         Jesus would renew or transform your relationship with Him.

            In our community this experience is also offered to young men and women ages 15-19
                                    and it is called a Chrysalis Flight.

  A Chrysalis is the transformation process that a Butterfly goes through in its development, beginning as a
    Caterpillar which is then transformed into a Butterfly. This is the theme of our 72 hr Chrysalis Flights.
 As part of our 4th day community you can participate in this process in many ways. Respond to Jesus' call ....
                      Reach out to that young man or woman that needs this experience....
                              Take action and sponsor them on a Chrysalis Flight.
                 Our next Chrysalis Flight will be Memorial Day Weekend (May 23-25) 2009.

  Other ways that you can respond to His call is to be apart of the team that serves on the Chrysalis flight, by
        attending Candlelight & Closing services, writing agape letters, providing snack, table or bed
                                             agape, participating
                            in the 72 hour Prayer Vigil or by helping serve meals.

 We also invite you to participate in our monthly Chrysalis gatherings which are called Hoots....come join us...
 bring other adults.... bring other youth... bring someone you might want to sponsor...they are all welcome!

                     New updated Chrysalis Caterpillar Applications & Team Applications
                 are available on our web site or by contacting me or another board member.
                           Call or Email anytime..... DeColores and Fly With Christ!

  Wabash Valley Walk to Emmaus Board Would like your opinion!

       We are considering having the Support Team go to formations,
                  along with the Conference Room Team.
    If the majority is in favor of this, the following would be expected:
            There would be formations 4 consecutive Saturdays,
                plus the Dedication Service at the Gathering,
                          They would need to attend.
        The requirement would be to attend 3 formations out of the 4.
                 This would allow the teams to bond better
    and the Support Team would have more time to plan for the Walks.
                           However, on the Walks,
                the Support Team will still be Anonymous
                           and in the background,
                 to support the pilgrims and their needs.
     If you have any questions, please contact Sallie York at 843-2682.

Please send Sallie an e-mail ( to let her know if you
          would like the Support Team to meet at formations or if
          would not like the Support Team to meet at formations
