5K Wild Run/Walk

Running Wild Store put on a 5K Wild Run/Walk on Saturday, May 26, 2007 proceeds will come to the Ranch. I made a little video and posted at the bottom of this page, please check it out. I couldn’t figure out how to size it down so I could post it right here, so this will have to do. I’m just a little computer, blog, and website challenged lately. This will have to do, hope you enjoy!

Breathing much easier!

The boy has been found, he is at his mom’s house in her care, while we go to Texas to be with our precious grandson Dylan for his 1 year birthday. We didn’t know how it was all going to work out with him missing and we were suppose to be leaving. God is in control and we need to just trust him in this whole situation. His mom and him are going to work on things for a little while to see if they can resolve issues without him coming back here, if not we will take him back and try again. Please keep him in your prayers!

God Bless You All for your continued prayer support!!!!!

Breathing a little easier!

Had a phone call from our car insurance company today, stating that if our Rav4 was damaged, due to needing a miracle, it would be covered but if there was any damage to anyone else’s property or vehicle, NOTHING would be covered. UGH! Then at about 6:00 we got a phone call that the Rav4 was found, it was parked in front of houses on Friday night, the lights left on. Nobody reported it, one guy said he just moved into the neighborhood and he just figured his neighbor had somebody visiting. The Rav4 was unharmed, AMEN, and we just had the oil changed, so we could see according to the miles that he just drove it to Davenport and parked it.

However, we still have no idea where the boy is. Jim has guardianship, so we would still appreciate your prayers, for him and his protection. We also were going to leave on the 16th to go to Texas to help our grandson celebrate his 1 year birthday, but if we don’t find him before then, Jim will probably not be able to leave the state, even if we do find him before then we are not sure what we will do about Jim’s airplane ticket because, we won’t want to leave him with Curtis, our youngest son, after all this has happened. Please continue to pray for this situation, and thank you for your prayers already because we are breathing a little easier, knowing that he is not driving around in a vehicle with no drivers license.

Lord,

We thank you for the fact that the vehicle is back and the boy is not riding around in it, however, we are very concerned about his protection and well being, please put your loving arms around him, wrap him up, and soften his heart so he will turn himself in, and come back to the ranch, to let you continue to work on his heart. Please watch over him where ever he is, and bring him back safely to us like you did the vehicle. We thank you and praise you in advance for what you are going to do through this whole ordeal that took place.

In Jesus Name,

Amen

We need a miracle!

Today we got our new boy as I stated in this post that we would be getting on May 4th. We definitely thought it was of God when we went to get the guardianship just the way things transpired getting him. We got him home, did a work job, Jim and Curtis wrestled around in the front yard with all of the boys, ate supper, did inside chores, and all of the sudden one of the boys, came to tell me, I might want to check on the new boy because he was sitting in the Rav4, (our personal vehicle). I ran out there and he was backing out of the drive way, and peeled out. I called Jim on the cell phone, right away because he was down in the barn, and he took off with the truck through the hay field after him. We still have not found him and this happened about 5 hours ago. He is out there on run, with our personal vehicle, with no license. Please all saints join up with us in prayer, for protection for him, and everyone else he comes in contact with that vehicle. We have the Cedar County Sheriff’s office, involved with this, and just pray that he will be found soon. Please pray for his mom also, as this is very hard for her.

Psalm 77:14 “You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.”

Please pray for a miracle for the Miracles Can Happen Boys Ranch.

Off to the Bachelor Pad!

E R I C ———- E is for Entertaining, R is for Riot, I is for Ingenious and C is for Comical. These are a few words we could use to describe a young man we have grown to love as he has resided here at Miracles Can Happen Boys Ranch since August of 2005.

Eric has completed the Season Level in our program and has now advanced to the Playoff Level. He moved into the bachelor pad, to begin a new phase in his life. While living in the bachelor pad, Eric, will learn how to hold himself accountable, control a check book, what paying bills is all about, and the basics of what it takes to be an adult living on your own. He will strive to make it to the Superbowl, in completing the program by staying in the bachelor pad at least 6 months. When he leaves, we pray that he decides to leave as the winner of the Superbowl. We say that in saying that it is their choice what they want to get out of this program. So, if you think of Eric please pray for him as he is entering the playoffs, taking on new tackles that will be set before him, with new privileges, different passes thrown at him, and needing to decide if he wants to listen to the coach of life, that we all need to listen to, or if he wants to try to be the quarterback that decides his own play to run. Thank you all for joining us in prayer for Eric as he moves forward in this program.
