Learning Goes Both Ways...

Despite the downpour yesterday, we were able to have Learning Opportunities come out and visit HIS Ranch. As you can see in some of the pictures, the riding arena was only about half dry, but we decided to go ahead and use the dry half to host this group. We are thankful for the opportunity to have served them! Their smiles were a great reminder to us of why we do what we do.
This week was very slow due to our arena being too much of a swampy mess, but we are thankful for the rain and the beautiful lightning and awesome thunder that came with it!

Over the summer months HIS Ranch has had a lot of different volunteers. Sadly, this week marks the last week for most of our summer volunteers. How quickly this summer has gone! So many children were touched by the loving and caring actions of the summer staff! Above you will see Jennifer & Amber Rassi (affectionately called "Jamber") along with Rebecca Bolliger as they spend some of their last moments at HIS Ranch painting the doors.

Every job that was completed was appreciated! Every single shovel of dirt, every drop of sweat, every drop of blood, every shingle nailed down, every stall cleaned was greatly appreciated!

We often discuss at HIS Ranch how amazing it would be if we could see the fingerprints on the ranch of everyone who has prayed for, sent funds to, or worked at HIS Ranch. Thanks so much for your fingerprint! It is humbling and overwhelming at times to see how the Lord has worked to inspire, grow, and provide for HIS Ranch. Praise the Lord for all that He has done!
