Weekend with the Wilkes

Sweet fellowship

What a refreshing time enjoying the unity of fellow believers in a whirlwind of profitable activity! Times of planning, times of work, times of rest, and times of play, but all of them were times of joy. I wish we had pictures of the volleyball and ping pong! What a joy it was also to […]

Give Me Liberty!
