Hope Springs

Some you know that my two older sisters, Charity and Roseanna were in a horrible car accident when we were teenagers. I thank God that they are alive. In the process, they were seriously burned and went through many stages in the process of recovery -- a long story for another day.

Through all of this, Charity has had a dream of starting a therapeutic ranch where burned, traumatized, and disabled children and young adults may reside year-round as they continue with their therapy and recovery. It is to be a place of physical and emotional healing before they journey into their everyday lives.

Charity has grown in dependence on Christ as she has walked through this life-changing ordeal and has seen His loving care and grace in bringing her through the healing process. She wants to share that love with others who are going through similar circumstances, and I can't tell you how excited I am to see what God does with this ministry.

Charity has worked with Solid Rock Foundation Ministries for the last several years and they are partnering with her to start Hope Springs. In fact, in the last week, they have gone into contract on property for a ranch in beautiful Ouray, Colorado (the lovely little town where that David boy finally proposed to me! =)

Charity is working on a mailer -- if you would like to get her newsletter, please email Solid Rock at srfm[insert at sign here] with your contact information and ask to be added to the Hope Springs contact list. Or, if we have your contact information, leave a comment and we'll forward your contact information to her.

Thank you for your prayers!

Just wanted to give a shout out to Charity -- God's blessed me in being able to know you! I pray He'll do the same for kids through Hope Springs! (love the name, too!)
