Where did the last two weeks go?

I can't believe it has been two weeks since I last posted. Wow! Tuesday the 25th of September I had a great talk with one of the boys while Jim and another were out milking. We talked for a good hour and a half and the most important thing we talked about and he agreed was that he has heard Jesus knocking loud on his hearts door 2 times and decided that he didn't need him in his life at this time. About 4 days later this boy ran from the ranch and is still on run right now, and we are asking all of you to pray without ceasing for him right now. He has been on run for the fourth time now in the last week. He has been gone since Tuesday this time, and we are concerned not only for his well being but his future. He was failing 4 classes out of 8 already before he took off, this is his senior year and he is throwing his diploma out the door, when he was this close. He was doing great in the program , moved out into the bachelor pad, after 2 years of being here, gave him a little freedom, some major family issues started taking place, started hanging out with new friends and this is where we are today. Please Pray! He is a great young man, with a great heart, with a lot going for him, with several people out there I know are praying for him. Please pray for his Salvation, protection and willingness to let us love him through Christ. God knows who he is just call him The Lost Boy.



Galatians 5:7 & 8 "You were running a good race. Who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth? That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you."

Thank you for helping us run this race, so we can help young men run the good race, and try to persuade them to stay on the right track. This race is not always easy, at times it's very challenging, but with God all things are possible.

I will try to be back soon, to tell you all about the Miracles Can Happen Challenge Bike Ride that took place on September 29. I'm hoping to get caught up this week.
