Conservative Christian families who are serious about applying Biblical principles are often made to feel like they are in the minority. This lonely feeling is a tactic of the enemy to discourage Christians and undermine their faith. Guard against this deception, fellow soldiers! Take heart and press forward!
In an effort to show such families that they are not alone and to remind them that there are rewards for being faithful unto the end, the Wilkes Family hosted Family Encouragement Weekend 2009! It was such a refreshment for us to be there and meet new like-minded families and many families from last year’s conference.
The time was packed with inspiring messages and confirming testimonies from the participating families. Families reported that they were challenged to trust God totally, pray for one another, seek God in medical decisions, praise character, have a listening heart, maintain a positive attitude, and pray together.

Do not feel alone! God is raising up many laborers for His Kingdom everywhere! Even when we do feel alone, we should not let it concern us because “there is no restraint to the LORD to save by many or by few.” (I Sam. 14:6) and “If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Rom. 8:31) God is doing great things in these last days through many who are totally dedicated to Him. Continue in the faith and run with patience the race that is set before you!
