Did you KNOW?

Did you know that you can be a part of changing a life? Did you see that boy walking around with his pants hanging to the ground and he could care less about respecting anyone or anything? What about the boy that flipped you off for no reason? These are the type of boys we at Miracles Can Happen Boys Ranch work with. These boys come with no respect, no work ethic, no goals in life and we at the ranch try very hard to change that.

Did you know that we have 60 boys on a waiting list? Did you know that we have been founded since 1992? We need help to be able to keep the doors of this much needed program open and to expand so we can help more boys. This is a huge need in this area. We are putting on our 6th annual Golf Outing June 5th and we need sponsors! Please go to our special event page and check out the sponsor form for the Golf Outing. It could be somebody you know that needs this program but are just sitting there on the waiting list with no hope. Any amount of money helps because this ministry is strictly supported by people, businesses, churches, and a few grants we are able to get. This ranch takes no state funds. We are a 501c3 non profit corporation so we do give year end donation receipts.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this blog. Now in closing I will tell you about a boy from Muscatine. We had a boy come from Muscatine with no respect, skipping school, gave a bomb threat; he could have cared less about himself let alone someone else. This young man 8 years later is doing GREAT! He owns his own home, has a wife, 18 month old triplet girls, (which he does a great job taking care of them), working and going to college (w/goal of becoming a CPA). If the doors of Miracles Can Happen Boys Ranch was not here for him…. not sure where he would be today. Would he even be alive? We are asking you to prayerfully consider stepping along side of us and help us make a difference….even if it’s just one you are helping that is at least ONE!

The Triplets @ their "One Year Birthday Party".... I Cathy (Nana) had the privilege to be there!

Thankful hearts!
