          The Blessings of Sponsorship

Sponsoring a Pilgrim is a win, win situation..  The Pilgrim certainly wins as he or she gets to walk closer with our Lord and Savior.  The Sponsor wins, too, as there is no better feeling than having helped someone to strengthen their faith.

It is never too soon to think about sponsoring a Pilgrim on the Walk to Emmaus.  We need to prayerfully consider the sponsorship of someone we care about, someone we want to have what we gained on our Walk to Emmaus; Someone we want to have that wonderful feeling we felt as we walked closer to Jesus; Someone who we will have helped to have a joyous, richer Christ-filled life.  Do Pass It On!
