On behalf of the Board of
Directors of the Southwest Indiana Walk to Emmaus (SIWE), we would like to thank
the 4th day members for their continued prayers and devotion to our
Emmaus community. It takes a lot of
hard work each walk season to orchestrate these events.
I have always loved Proverbs 27:17, “
As iron sharpens iron, so one person
sharpens another”. We
see a lot of “iron being sharpened” on the Emmaus weekends, and our 4th
day people are a big reason why. All
parts of these weekends are important, whether it be sponsoring a pilgrim,
serving on a team, serving meals, making agape, participating in the 72-hour
prayer vigil, attending a gathering or candlelight, and the list goes on and on.
There is a role for everyone to play in the Emmaus community and no one
duty is more important than the other. Christ
calls us all to serve in different ways. But
each form of agape is needed to make each walk special for the pilgrims.
We want to thank Camp Illiana
for the amazing facilities they offer for our walks.
Ben and the staff work very hard to keep our needs met in every way.
It seems they are constantly upgrading some part of the camp.
In return, we ask you help us to always return the camp as good or better
than we found it. This will insure
that we can all enjoy this special place for many years to come.
Obviously, sponsorship is a key
part to building the Emmaus community. However,
we ask that you prayerfully consider individuals when sponsoring.
Emmaus is intended for those who regularly attend a church and are
looking to deepen their relationship with Christ.
It is this deepening relationship that moves those individuals to become

your prayers for the Emmaus community, the teams and pilgrims, and the Board of
Directors as we make decisions for the community, always seeking Gods will in
everything we do. Please feel free
