Whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith. - Galatians 6:10 (NRSV)
Saturday morning the phone rang, and a familiar voice asked, “Do you hoe gardens?” It was Verna, my 90-year-old widow friend. I was semi-retired with extra time on my hands, but I needed a few moments to think about her request. I worried that my hoeing skills weren’t good enough....
What small task might be an opportunity from God?

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!”
