NC Family Encouragement Weekend

Posted by The Neely Team



Much anticipation had been built. It was time for the conference to begin. Then all of a sudden, it was over. It all happened so fast! But we came away having seen the work of the Lord and encouraged to press on. We were challenged by the Word, motivated by testimonies of young people striving to serve Christ, and encouraged and uplifted by the fellowship and prayer times with other families.

The North Carolina FEW was the first of four planned conferences this year. We look forward with great excitement to the next FEW and the continued work of the Lord! May Jesus Christ be praised!

Game time!!

    We missed you too Martins! All the more reason to look forward to New Hampshire should the Lord make it possible to attend there. One prayer request we had this year, even before we had decided on the topic of faithfulness, was for previous attendees to be able to return. That prayer was answered! It’s not that there is virtue in coming to conferences year after year, it’s more that faithfulness seems to already be a quality that characterizes the “remnant” God is raising up for righteousness in our day. Thank you Neely Team for doing all you can to encourage that faithful, ready spirit!
