Paul wrote, “I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” - Ephesians 3:17-18 (NIV)
Over 30 years ago I met a woman who made a lasting impression on my faith journey. She was bright, articulate, a mother of two young children, and a career woman. She also had breast cancer. Still, she had a joy that often perplexed me.
We talked about many things...
How do I experience God’s goodness in my life?

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!”
