It was a Fabulous Family Get-together

I was going to title this “North Carolina FEW Conference” but decided “Family Get-together” was a good description of the exhilarating weekend we were blessed to be a part of last month. Families, overflowing with a desire to live for the Lord and seek Him, came together to encourage each other toward this goal! It was a great place to be!

Here are a couple things America’s founding fathers had to say about families:

“Good government generally begins in the family, and if the moral character of a people once degenerate, their political character must soon follow.” – Elias Boudinot (Founder and President of the American Bible Society.)

“Religion in a family is at once its brightest ornament and its best security.” – Samuel Adams (Said to T. Wells, his daughter’s fiance)

    Praise the Lord! May the prayer of our hearts regarding the FEW Conferences be Psalm 109:26-27: “Help [us], O Lord [our] God: O save [us] according to thy mercy: That they may know that this is THY hand; that thou, Lord, hast done it.”

    It truly is an amazing thing to be in one accord in Christ, “stand[ing] fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel” and praying that God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven!
