Sacrifice! Thank you Jesus! Thank you supporters!

Hebrews 7:26-28 "Such a high priest meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself. For the law appoints as high priests men who are weak; but the oath, which came after the law, appointed the Son, who has been made perfect forever." NIV

Hebrews 26-28 "So now we have a high priest who perfectly fits our needs: completely holy, uncompromised by sin, with authority extending as high as God's presence in heaven itself. Unlike the other high priests, he doesn't have to offer sacrifices for his own sins every day before he can get around to us and our sins. He's done it, once and for all: offered up himself as the sacrifice. The law appoints as high priests men who are never able to get the job done right. But this intervening command of God, which came later, appoints the Son, who is absolutely, eternally perfect." THE MESSAGE

Thank you Jesus for fitting our need; you did it once and for ALL, even for me. Thank you God for appointing your SON, who is absolutely, eternally perfect. Jim and I couldn't do this job of working with these boys daily but you sacrificed your life for us, so that you could forgive us when we mess up trying to deal with these boys. It's not an easy job, but with your help we can do it and we will continue on in the race you have placed us in.

We would like to thank all of you who have sacrificed a part of your life to help us run this race. I especially think of everyone who sacrificed a little to adopt a cow, the cow's are even being used to minister to these boys. The one on one time that Jim or Curtis have while milking the cows has been a great tool. So when you see a cow running in the pasture, think of the boys ranch, the race we are running and say a little extra prayer.

This cow's name is praisin', it's kind of funny to think back of how the proud parents of this adopted cow came up with her name. They were having septic problems with their house, and were praying, thought they were going to have to pay $2,000 to 2,500 to fix their problems but God took care of them so they felt God was telling them to take that $2,000 to buy a cow, so they did and they were praisin God so they named her praisin. We are having septic problems with this cow, she is our dirtiest cow, because the gets down on her front knees and poops, therefore poops all over her bag and is constantly covered in poop. But we just keep praisin the Lord because he is good, and it makes us laugh to think how this cow got her name.
