Kairos #24 schedule & message from our fearless leader

Kairos #24 Volunteers,
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  The second Team Mtg for Kairos #24 will be this Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010 starting at 9:00 am at theFirst Presbyterian Church in Midland, Texas, in the Koinonia Room inside the gym.  A map is attached for your review.

Kairos #24 got off to a great start with the first Team Meeting last week.  We had several new volunteers, and a few who returned from taking a break.  It was great to see old friends, as well as getting to know some new friends.  For all who attended, I want to say “Thank You” for being there and I look forward to seeing you this Saturday.  For those who couldn’t make it, I hope to see you at the second Team Meeting.  I’ve left messages and sent emails to a few people I haven’t heard from.  Please let me know if you’ll be able to answer Christ’s call to be a part of Kairos #24.

I received team applications from nearly everyone at the meeting, but there are a few I still need.  I’m attaching a copy of the form in case you need one.  As a reminder the Team Fee is $125 per person.  There are scholarships available, so the team fee shouldn’t keep anyone from attending.  Anyone needing a full or partial scholarship should contact Dave Pearcy.

For all the new volunteers who haven’t gone through TDCJ training.  Please send your completed application to the TDCJ as soon as possible.  The TDCJ training application can be found in your folder.  For the returning volunteers, the TDCJ now requires that we go through training every two years.  If it’s been over two years since your last TDCJ training, you will need to take it again.  Chaplain Raines at the Lynaugh Unit will be giving training at 9:00 AM the morning of Thursday, Oct. 28 before Kairos #24 begins.

Please be in prayer that the Holy Spirit will guide and protect each and every one of the volunteers, the Lynaugh Kairos community, Chaplain Raines, and the Lynaugh Unit as a whole.

The Stepping Stone ministry will be providing lunch again.  They did a great job with lunch last week, and I know it will be even better this week.  Please remember to be generous with your lunch donation.

Future training dates are as follows:
Team Mtg #2:       Saturday, Sept 18th
Team Mtg #3:       Saturday,  Oct 2nd
Team Mtg #4:       Saturday, Oct 16th
Kairos #24 will be Oct 28-31 at the Lynaugh Unit in Fort Stockton
Follow up training will be Nov. 6th.

Our Brother Bob Westbrook has put together a wonderful blog:   Kairos blog  I encourage everyone to visit the blog for additional information.

I look forward to seeing you Saturday.
Blessings from our Lord and Savior.
