We all remember being on our pilgrim walk and realizing just how big of a group Walk to Emmaus is. We saw the letters from communities from all around the globe. Helping us realize how closely linked we are with people from all over the world. We saw letters from Christians who had been on the exact same type of Emmaus weekend. Now we have an incredible opportunity to share that same agape love to new pilgrims here and across the globe.
We have a fellow community in a far away land preparing for a walk. Perth Australia will have a men’s walk this weekend and a women’s walk next weekend. They have asked for our assistance with their prayer vigil. Please see the links below:
17-20 May Men's walk:

We are also blessed to have an Emmaus community a little closer to home preparing to head out for their Emmaus journey. The Eagles Wing Emmaus Community in Austin TX will be having a men’s walk this weekend. They have also asked us to assist with their prayer vigil (https://www.signupgenius.com/go/904054aa8ab2fa02-prayer7). The walk is at the Eagles Wing Retreat Center in Burnet TX. If you are interested in attending the candle light service please contact Mike O’Brien (512-413-8050, firstname.lastname@example.org) for direction and info.
Within a 100 mile radius of San Antonio there are 17 Emmaus communities – having gatherings, planning team meetings and preparing for walks just like our Diakonia Community.
We are all standing together in our 4th days and spreading the news for others to join the Emmaus community.
