In Memory of Gwen Wilkerson




This morning at 10:30am CST our beloved mother, Gwen Wilkerson, passed away. She was 81 and went to be with Christ with great peace and even anticipation. She had an amazing resolve and unshakeable faith, exemplified throughout her life in her numerous battles with cancer. Her miraculous story was told in her faith-building book, Abiding in His Strength.

Her husband of 58 years and our father, David Wilkerson, passed away in April of 2011. Ever since then Mom has longed to go to be with Christ in heaven. We are comforted knowing she has entered her reward.

We are grateful to our World Challenge partners for all your prayers. She prayed for you daily and always considered it a great privilege to be part of this ministry.

With you in Christ,
Debbie, Bonnie, Greg and Gary Wilkerson
