Last November four presenter couples from four different backgrounds (Asian, Hispanic, American and African) had the privilege to speak to 61 couples at our Minnesota Conference 2021 Multicultural Couples’ Retreat. One of the major objectives was to come together under one roof with the explicit purpose of sharing our experiences and learning how to solve the challenges the marital relationship poses.

“It was a great experience,” said one of the attendees. “It is a blessing to have the opportunity to interact in a multicultural environment and achieve unity with the purpose of learning and sharing together the many areas where marriage needs nurturing.”

Another attendee said, “We need to do this more often.”

As Family Life Ministries coordinator, it was great to see many couples coming together and working to improve their marriage relationship. It was like a little time of heaven on earth because the environment was so pleasant and so positive. You could see the joy and the loving expressions between the couples. Let’s always come together in unity no matter who we are and where we come from so we can finish the work that God entrusted us with!
