A NOTE FROM OUR LAY DIRECTOR....
Meet our new Lay Director; Pa2 Harris. Pa2 was a pilgrim on Women’s Walk #3 in March 1991. Pa2 has been married to Don Harris for 31 years and they have two daughters, Amanda 24 and Allison 20. She also has two cats-­‐Mo and Duckie.
Overcoming Obstacles
There are two talks on the Walk to
Emmaus entitled “Obstacles to
Grace” and “Perseverance.” The
themes of those talks could not be
more appropriate looking back on
the recent Men’s Walk # 53.
Let me first of all congratulate the
entire Chattanooga-LaFayette
Emmaus & Chrysalis Community
for its own incredible display of
God’s love and being the Body of
Christ throughout the Walk. Your
support through prayers and
presence was a testimony that
spoke volumes to the Pilgrims.
While listening to the men’s
incredible testimonies during
Closing, I was reminded of how
many “Obstacles” had to be
overcome and how much
“Perseverance” was displayed
throughout the Walk.
The words of James 1:12 could not
be more appropriate: “Blessed is
the man who perseveres under
trial, because when he has stood
the test, he will receive the crown
of life that God has promised to
those who love him.
I don’t know if everyone fully
grasps how much Satan worked
1]
tirelessly to interfere with the Walk,
but thanks to a Community of
prayers God was faithful.
tThe Team missed two regularly scheduled meetings because of weather issues, which forced delays in talks
previews and curtailed team bonding opportunities.
tThere were several late Team changes due to conflicting commitment schedules.
tThe Walk was nearly postponed due to an inadequate amount of Pilgrims, but the Community came through
with enough sponsorships just before the deadline.
tTwo Pilgrims had to drop off at the last minute, leaving two tables one participant shy.
tThe day before Sendoff, a mudslide closed Nick-A-Jack Road, which is the main access to Camp Lookout. It
forced longer drives for just about everyone coming up the mountain.
tJust minutes before Sendoff began, Lay Director Robby Dunn became mysteriously ill, but Board
Representative Dr. Mark Kapperman stepped in like a professional. The next morning, Robby was feeling fine
and able to lead the rest of the weekend.
tIncredibly dense fog two mornings and one evening made traveling to and from Camp Lookout very nervewracking.
tA misty rain during Candlelight threatened to put a damper on the evening, but not 1 candle was extinguished
by the constant rain.
The women’s walk is just around the corner, April 16-19. My prayer is that the same outpouring of love will be
displayed to the women that was shown to the men. We give praise to God and to this wonderful community for
your support! We have a full walk and several on the waiting list for the upcoming women’s walk. See you on
the mountain!

several walks and are equipped to mentor the other members who are
less experienced. The 1/3 of new members will hold the positions of
