Isaiah 59:21 “As for me,” God says, “this is my covenant with them: My Spirit that I’ve placed upon you and the words that I’ve given you to speak, they’re not going to leave your mouths nor the mouths of your children nor the mouths of your grandchildren. You will keep repeating these words and won’t ever stop.” God’s orders.” The MESSAGE
A few days before these two grandsons were coming to visit Nana and Papa, (for a week) we received a phone call from their daddy. They were having a little fight over who was going to get the pooper scooper and if there was going to be enough poop to scoop at Nana and Papa’s house. I guess we are remembered more for the poop at our house rather than God’s word…so in saying that we have some work to do because I guess we aren’t doing our job!
Sure is funny, these little guys think it’s so fun to help Papa scoop poop. However the big guys we work with, would rather throw the poop at Jim (which that has happened before) when he tells them they have to scoop poop for their nasty actions they just had.

Trying to follow God’s Orders,
This is a daily thing at the ranch…..both the picture and this verse! When you are on the front line of the battle field it is a struggle. There is a spirital battle going on for these boys lives daily! But we know who the WINNER is and are so thankful that HE is much stronger than this dark world!
So thankful to be in this battle and being lead by a MIGHTY leader. Trusting that HE will continue to guide us in this ministry!

Such an awesome site to see! This was a powerful night at the Got Guts Camp! He was definately there with us that whole week! It was awesome!
Thankful for prayer time,
God is trying to tell us something right now but we just can’t hear him. We are trying to listen. It feels like we are ready to explode but yet it seems like we are just standing still in this ministry.
God has sent us an awesome family to work along side of us in this ministry, the Clark Family and we are excited! We have been blessed to watch God bring their 19 year old nephew, Mike, to the ranch whom was born deaf. It is so amazing to watch him learn new things and blossom as a young man. I was looking out the window tonight watching him play football with Deuce, (our yellow lab here at the ranch.) I was watching him try to get the ball from Deuce at the same time wondering how I could teach him to tell Deuce to drop it and Deuce understand him. He was aimlessly chasing Deuce and he would not give him that football because he wasn’t telling him to drop it. As I sat down tonight to write, I knew I wanted to write something about this but I was just chasing my thoughts around in my head and I wasn’t asking HIM to help me! Why do I do that? Why do we do that? He is there for us to ask, so why don’t we ask?
Lord, there is a reason for this young man being here right now at this time, help us to listen. He is learning by listening with his eyes about how to be a young man. Help us to teach him what he needs to learn in the time he is here with us. Help us to listen with our eyes so we don’t miss the lessons you want to teach us. Lord, we want to hear what you want to tell us in this season of this ministry. Help us to listen. We love you Lord and we want to do your will. In Jesus Name, Amen
Sometime’s ministry can be oh so hard…but Thanks be to God for leading us in triumph and helping us spread the fragrance of the knowledge of him. He helps us be the aroma of Christ to those who are perishing.
He continues to help us persevere even though we are going through a very unthinkable personal circumstance right now. God continues to help us touch lives in the midst of the storm.
I just found this verse the other day while looking for something to help with the call I just received from Curtis. He got wrote up for a wrong doing for the first time after sitting in county jail for 15 months and now prison for another 15 months. Why, what did you do Curtis? He said, “I had a dryer sheet in the front of my vent to make the cell smell good.” “Did you know you weren’t suppose to do that?” I asked. “No, but I do now.” He answered. I guess it was a fire hazard.
The same day I received a phone call from an inmate that had gotten out and spent time with him in prison and he said, “I just called to tell you your son is a “proverbial ray of sunshine in that place.” So even though Curtis’ cell can’t give off fragrance or aroma his character can!
Thank you God for using my son to give off aroma of Christ in a very dark place to those who are being saved and those who are perishing.
Trying my hardest to give off aroma,
