A Weekend With the Wilkes

Flash News Interviews brings to you a weekend with the Wilkes. The highlights are well pix4summarized in the following quotes.

David: “I had fun playing an escape game on the hill in the tall grass with Kenan, Adam, and Sarah.”

pix6Jonathan:pix2 “Everything was fun but I enjoyed playing soccer the most”

Daniel: “I am so glad that we were able to play Bible Runners (an exiting outdoor game) in the tall grass especially since it was at night.”

James: “Let me see, I think my favorite activity was the prayer meeting for our nation. We had it just before the concert which I really liked as well (trying to get pictures and playing also). I liked the time of prayer because everyone was together and I know it brought our families even closer together. We had never done it before but I sure hope we can do it again. In the mean time, we can keep praying individually and together as a family!”

Esther:pix5 “We made more time than usual just to talk. Conversation ranged from the U.S. border issue to our spiritual walk with the Lord, and I greatly appreciated it all.”

Robert: “I thoroughly enjoyed an intense game of volleyball with the Wilkes team. It was extremely close, extremely competitive, and extremely fun. I was amazed at how well the teams worked together. It has been quite a while since I’ve had a volleyball game that good!”

Michael: “What a joy to share together what God has been teaching us from scripture, experience, and history.”

Dad: “My only regret is our evenings weren’t long enough. ‘Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.’ Prov. 27:17 Discussions with Mark have helped sharpen my thinking.”

Praise the Lord for His blessing of friends to come along side and encourage us to be like Christ.

    Thanks David! I totally enjoyed their visit and to read about it is to relive it. I liked how Michael mentioned history, Dad mentioned the lack of time, and Daniel mentioned the tall grass. It was one packed weekend!

    That was a packed weekend! Your post covered the events really well David and made me feel I was there. Truly where two or three of us are gathered there is Christ in the midst of us!
