Story of the Week – Session 7

That’s a wrap – Summer 2022 has come to a close but the seeds sowed and the life transformation that occurred will continue to grow, shape, and change the communities in which we live.

Karli, one of our staff members, summed up the summer well…

“When reflecting on the past 10 weeks… words will never be able to describe how thankful I am for this place and the people it has brought into my life.  God works in amazing ways.  Pouring His love into children who need it most with this group of God-fearing individuals was a true blessing.  The growth and transformation He has given me through The Ranch is something I will be forever grateful for.  Thank you, Wildwood, for the best summer.”

Jake, our Success Coach, shared a bit about his experience this summer…

“In my role as a success coach, I was able to observe a lot of amazing things at The Ranch this summer. One that stood out to me the most was this – each and every staff member, volunteer, missions team member, and anyone who gives their time to The Ranch shows the love of Christ in everything they do. They constantly make sacrifices because of the love they have for these youth. These amazing people sacrifice time with loved ones to be here, give up hard earned break time to make sure our ranchers are heard and feel loved, sacrifice sleep to be certain that our ranchers will have clothes that are clean for the next day, and will sit and intentionally listen to the stories of our students. The love of Christ is evident everyday – the ranchers are loved unconditionally in a way that will forever change their lives.”

We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to see a glimpse into what it’s like to be at The Ranch for a summer!  Thanks for tuning in and supporting us through your prayers and generosity.
