Audrey, a single mom, is raising two strapping young men with developmental disabilities. Shouldering all the responsibility alone, her road has been demanding and exhausting. She has rarely found understanding from others – until your support welcomed her with open arms to Family Retreat. “I’m at the beginning of my Christian faith,” Audrey said. “At Family Retreat I see a lot of people who care – and I don’t get a lot of that in my life. At home I can’t let my guard down in front of my boys. I have to hold it all inside.” “I look around Family Retreat and see that God has carried all these families. They’re not just surviving – they’re full of joy. I see people who really believe and trust Jesus and what He can do for us. They have real strength. At Family Retreat, I’m learning that He wants to do that for me, too.” Thank you for standing on behalf of families like Audrey’s, who need your strength to find theirs through the ministry of Family Retreats.

I had the privilege of working some with this family at camp. These are two fine young men, and Audrey has done a great job with them! Keep up the great work!
