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.
