Just A Small Glimpse!
Hope you enjoy a small glimpse of our precious guys at Renewal Ranch.
I never dreamed that I would be so blessed as to be a part of something so fulfilling and rewarding.
We now have 15 guys living in a bunkhouse built for 6 and we have several guys at chapel every Saturday morning in desperate need of a bed.
We have two sleeping on sofas and one sleeping on a cot at the present time. We doubled up the beds in the six bedrooms and have 12 there.
One of the volunteers at Renewal Ranch is trying to personally raise $100,000 for a new bunkhouse that would house 12 more men.
She is challenging 100 women to give $1000 a piece. God willing, in a few days I will tell you of my attempt to raise $1000.
I have never ventured to raise that amount of money on my own. It makes my heart thump and butterflies in my stomach just to think about it. It will certainly have to be a God thing. I am not capable of it on my own.
Renewal Ranch does not charge the men anything for the 6 to 18 months of rehabilitation. It is our belief that Jesus paid the price and He will care for these men through the generous gifts of people and churches who are led to give. And the key word is "led."
There are many worthy Christian charities and God has enough Godly people to support all of them.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a story that happened to me last week concerning a young man trying to get in to Renewal Ranch.
