We arrived at 2 am on the 4th to participate (after a little sleep) in the Independence Day Culpeper parade with the Wilkes Team, the Roche family, and Grandpa and Grandma Wilkes! It was an excellent opportunity to reach others with the message of Christ and the vital importance of the biblical family.


Lots of ribbon, lots of laughterExcitement!

We have been blessed with victory and peace; let us as a nation praise the Almighty Power that has preserved us a nation, and humbly implore Him to have mercy on our land. He is our hope, our glory, our rejoicing!

Praise the Lord
