Face to Face—an experience in the Emmaus tradition for persons who are 60 or older—is spreading throughout the world and over 100 Walk to Emmaus Communities have received the training for this exciting ministry, including South Africa and Australia.

Here are some highlights from the most recent Face to Face encounter led by the Kwa Zulu Natal Community in South Africa:

  • This was the third Face to Face Encounter in South Africa.
  • 10 of the team members have not worked in Emmaus Ministries for over 10 years.
  • Four team member are over 80 years old.
  • The Lay Director is 83 years old
  • One table Leader did his first Talk at 83 years of age.
  • There were five First-time Talks.
  • The Spiritual Director had not worked for over 10 years.
  • The Prayer Team leader, at age 80, led Prayer for the first time.

The Kwa Zulu Natal Community has embraced Face to Face and are experiencing great blessings through the pilgrims who have attended. We thank God for their work and God’s blessings in this community.
