Welcome to our Houston Journey to Damascus (JTD) website. I have the honor and privilege of being the new President of the Board of Directors for 2018.
My name is Cindy Ramirez and I made my pilgrim journey in August 2004, JTD #29, the first Houston Women’s JTD. When I arrived at Circle Lake that Thursday in 2004, I was skeptical, reluctant about attending and didn’t want to be there. Little did I know that by Sunday morning I wouldn’t want to leave! I had experienced a spiritual renewal that weekend and was hooked. I joined a Reunion Group soon after and I’ve been serving on the Journey weekends and growing in faith with my Journey sisters and brothers ever since.
In 2017 many faced the challenges with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, job loss, family illness and other major life events. And we’re thankful that the Houston Journey community has been a refuge at a time when many faced these challenges. We are also truly blessed and thankful for the many individuals that dedicate their time, talents, etc. to keep the community growing.
Some of our goals for the coming year will be reaching out to the greater community to step up to leadership positions, promoting Reunion groups, and addressing financial responsibility and stability. In addition, we will continue to being better “fishers of men” and working diligently on filling all the seats at every journey weekend and to serve God and his people.
Please join us in being the hands and feet of Jesus and reach out to men and women whom God leads us to serve and to help enjoy a loving relationship with Him. The board members are here to serve each of you in the Houston JTD community, please do not hesitate to reach out to any one of us, at any time with your ideas, requests, and comments.
May God bless us all as we continue to do His work. De Colores!
