Annual Gathering 2022

My Brothers and Sisters in Christ! 

The Annual Gathering is upon us as we gather at Texas Lutheran University this week!

We remember our Lord in Matthew 18:20, “Where two or more are gathered in My name, I am there with them.” Jesus in our midst, at the AG, and with all of us, as we go in God’s name to love and serve our neighbors!

We are never alone, so let us all pray to God for the Annual Gathering, for the Host Committee, for the many who will come! May the Lord’s name be praised, and may Jesus bless our beloved Via de Cristo!

All of us in daily life, in our families, in our churches, and in our VDC have been effected by Covid. And we will all rise again! Death, darkness, struggles, problems will NOT have the last word in Via de Cristo!!

Let us rise up to the new life,  new hope, and the new love of Jesus!! God’s love is always new! “I am about to do a new thing, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness, and streams thru the desert.” Isaiah 43:19.

God loves you and so do I!! See many of you next week.  🙏
