The Only True Firm Foundation...JESUS!

On Tuesday Taylor, MO was blessed with much rain to offer relief to the crops. We were so thankful for the rain and yet a little sad at the fact that we have had to cancel all of the lessons since the riding arena was a swampy mess. This, however, presented the opportunity to focus more on the Welcome Center Porch construction. The volunteers have been slaving away digging trenches to fill with concrete for the foundation. We also hope to finish the majority of the roofing this afternoon! Thanks for all your prayers for safety! We appreciate it!

Roofing Progress!

Last weekend HIS Ranch was blessed to have workers from a multitude of different places work on the roof and fireplace inside the Welcome Center. The majority of the workers were from the Evanston Bible Fellowship Church in Chicago. It was great to be able to see the progress being made on the Welcome Center roof! It is really shaping (no pun intended:) up into what we have dreamed it to be. The Lord also was so good in providing nice weather for the weekend to be able to work. Praise God! Randy Meyer once again blessed us with his masonry skills as he pieced together the corner behind the stove. The finished product definitely adds to the atmosphere of the Welcome Center. Thanks to all who helped, whether they are a regular volunteer or travelled many miles to help. You are greatly appreciated!
"Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted?
it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick;
and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men,
that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Matthew 5:13-16
