“Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.” -Galatians 6:10

Thank you for allowing God to use you to pour out His love to families affected by disability. One such family is the Wallrauchs. Todd and Krysta came with their daughter, Elizabeth, and son, Matthew, who has autism. It’s easy for these parents to feel exhausted and alone when taking care of a child with a disability. It’s hard work and many people simply don’t understand what life with autism really entails. Parents are often pushed to the limit when they arrive at Family Retreat in need of Christ’s hope.  

“I was nervous to come in the beginning. I didn’t know what to expect. I nearly talked myself out of it,” Krysta told us. As soon as they arrived at Retreat, their family was embraced, they felt included, and the whole family developed deep connections and friendships. Krysta shared, “This week has been a gift from God. It’s unforgettable and there is nothing else like this for families affected by disability. Each day feels like a continual Sabbath for our family.”  

But the greatest news? At Family Retreat, Matthew accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and was baptized on the last day in the pool with other families and volunteers watching and praising Jesus! As soon as Matthew came out of the water, he lifted his hands up to Jesus as everyone rejoiced!  

Thank you for strengthening families like the Wallrauchs through your steadfast prayer and support! You can provide scholarships today to families who desperately need the refreshing love and joy of Jesus found at Family Retreat
