Here is your September Newsletter!
From the Lay Director 

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. ~ Colossians 3:23


This scripture is what I use at my job, especially on the tough days.  Today, though, is Labor day.  A day when summer ends and fall is ushered in.  A day to celebrate with family and friends and enjoy a little time off.  We went to the lake with some good friends, got to hunt some dove with another good friend and just had a very relaxing weekend.  My prayer is that all of you were able to relax and enjoy some of that time off as well.  


September is a very busy month for our community. We have a young lady's journey kicking off the same night as our community gathering this week on the 5th.  Next week is a young men's journey followed by a men's walk the week after. Please make every effort to attend send-off, candlelight and closing for each of these if possible, but certainly for at least one of them.  


Thank you for everything that all of you do to make Llano Estacado a thriving community.  There is still room on both flights and the men's walk as well for more caterpillars and pilgrims so if the Lord has placed someone on your heart to ask to sponsor on a Walk or a Chrysalis Journey, get them signed up today! 


I look forward to seeing you at Community this Thursday Sept. 5 at Aldersgate UMC starting at 6:30, but I hope many of you will also go out to Mercy Center and support the send-off for the young ladies as well.  Be blessed!


Love and blessings,

Chad Oglesby


WOW, what a work God did the first weekend of August at Ceta Canyon.  We had 18 young men and 23 young women that stood face to face with Jesus.  3 communities really stepped up to make this a special weekend for these butterflies.  I want to personally thank Jared Chrestman and Shayla Erickson for their hard work, dedication and flexible spirits as they led these teams to be Christ's hands and feet to the these High School Kids.  


We have 2 Young Adult Chrysalis's coming up September 5-8 and 12-15.  Steffanie Dayton will lead the girls starting on the 8th, Mark Miller will then be leading the next weekend for guys journey, please plan to come out to any of the 4th day activities.  We still need caterpillars for these weekends.  Contact me if you need any information.  There are full scholarships available.  


Mark your calendar for the 3rd Annual Prime Rib Fundraising Dinner December 7th at the Animal Science Building at Texas Tech.  We have such a great time and it is a great way to bless these young people as we are able to send them on a Chrysalis without them having to worry about how to pay for it.  


I want you to know it has been an honor and privilege to serve this community as the Chrysalis Community Lay Director, after the 2 Journeys in September Jared Chrestman will be taking over to serve you.  Please continue to invest in the young people they are the future and will bring revival to our very thirsty for God country.  


And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching.  Titus 2:7
