We are very thankful to God for the ministry of FWB Family Ministries. Ruth and I met while living at the Children's Home in the 70's. We were engaged there and later married at Harris Memorial FWB Church near the campus. Our wedding was performed by Rev. James Earl Raper, the Superintendent at the time we lived there. We just celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary on August 6, 2012. God is so good. We became Christians there and began our life as a couple there, Thank you FWBFM.
Ivan & Ruth (Turner) Kennedy, Talbott, TN
