and still more.....

Our photographer for the day was my brother, Jeff (Toffee) Knobloch, and he did such a fabulous job, I am having a hard time knowing which photos to share, so here are a few more.

Willy Davis - or Cowboy Willie - as he is known around the ranch has been faithfully coming each week since the beginning to train our horses. He has been a huge blessing to this ministry.

Our guests helping themselves to the free lunch

Tami Pflum is our faithful decorator, waiver sign-in host, gear-seller, cheerleader and prayer warrior. Her husband, Keith, is on our board of directors.

Amber & Jennifer Rassi put in HOURS of hard work helping us prepare for the fundraiser. They willingly showed up to do many less-than-glamourous jobs to help us out and we are so thankful for them. They are shown here enjoying a well-deserved cup of Starbucks coffee w/ Tinsley Tuley.

Humbled, Blessed & Overwhelmed

The hay pile provided hours of entertainment!

Our 2010 Fall Fundraiser was a huge blessing! God provided beautiful weather and you turned out in great numbers to help us celebrate another year of God's goodness to us. THANK YOU for your part in that day. Whether you prayed from a distance, worked along side of us, took time out of your weekend to join us or supported us financially, we were overwhelmed by your response. Your support helps to equip and enable us to continue providing this ministry to the community. God bless you abundantly.
