To each one the manifestation of the 
Spirit is given for the common good. - 1 Corinthians 12:7 (NIV)

My sister, Bev, is a retired English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher, and I am a retired nurse. We have recently 
become involved in meeting the needs of refugees. Trying to meet their needs can be hard work, but we remember that we are following Jesus by serving others....

Today's Prayer
Thank you, God, for giving us gifts and talents. Help us to use them to honor you. Amen.

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
