The Walk to Emmaus
"Now on that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus. While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them...their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight. They said to each other, 'Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?' "
The Gospel of Luke 24:13, 15, 31-32

2021 will soon be ending soon. I think we can all agree it’s not exactly how we saw things going for the year. However, we did successfully host our first 2 Walks in over a year and a half break due to Covid. De Colores to our new 4th day. We recognize that each new year has uncertainty that comes with unpredictable happenings, but we also recognize that each new year offers possibilities of taking positive steps to improve our spiritual lives. As we continue our spiritual growth into 2022, we look forward to serving our Lord and responding to the call of being His hands and feet.
We are so thankful for the involvement of the 4th Day Community. We would like to encourage your involvement as we ramp up for Walks in 2022. We have already secured Walk Dates for 2022, and Team Selection and Planning is on-going as I write this.
Please pray for the on-going efforts in Walk developments and please begin reaching out and asking friends and family about going on an Emmaus Walk. We could possibly have waiting lists to help ensure full Walks for the year.
Additionally, please pray about and consider serving on a team this next year. Reach out and let us know your willingness to serve through our Team Service Interest Form, and if you are contacted, please pray about, and give serious consideration to serving. As most folks will tell you, serving deepens the Emmaus blessing and joy of serving.
Last but not least, listed on our website is the list of candidates for Election to the Board of Directors. We have 6 spots to fill (3 men and 3 women). There was a tremendous effort put forth to fill a list of suitable and called candidates. We have identified 6 candidates (3 men and 3 women) who have agreed to run. Ideally, there would be more people listed on the slate, but God has provided us these 6. Please visit the 2022 Ballot page to vote for 3 each men & women. The election will run for 30 days per the Bylaws of HNEC, but – Welcome aboard newly elected Board Members!
The HNEC Community continues to be a great place to serve and further expand your spiritual growth. Start praying and planning so that this thing we call The Walk to Emmaus continues better and stronger than ever in 2022.
