Proud of this Birthday BOY!

 This young man just celebrated his 17th birthday with us here at the ranch.  Ryan has changed alot in the last two years.  He has grown into a fine young man and even this year we are seeing more good things happen at school.  We were starting to have some negative comments from a teacher and so we had a talk with him and he said he was going to change it on his own.  Michelle got an email today from this teacher that he is totally impressed with his change of attitude the last couple classes.  God continues to mold him and this we are grateful. 

The other day Ryan loaded this load of hay all by himself after school one day.  Jim says this is the biggest load any one boy has loaded at the ranch.  He was pretty proud of this stack of hay. 
Please pray for Ryan as he continues to grow into the man God would want him to be.  It amazes me how excited he gets when we have Bible Study in the evenings and how much he pays attention.  I'm thinking God is going to use this young man someday to help spread HIS word.  We love him and are excited to see what God is going to do in his life.

Isaiah 64:8 "Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand."

Serving HIM,

Thank you Robin....very few comment so I don't know if they read or not. I'm going to try to keep up on the blog so if you could pray for me to be able to do that, I would appreciate it. Thanks again!

Thank you for your post & for all you do at the ranch. Ryan is my nephew & is it so exciting to see God working & moving in his life. I also believe God has big plans for Ryan & I pray daily that he will surrender his life so that he will be able to to His will. I'm enjoying & looking forward to seeing Ryan grow and what God has planned for him.
