Dear Boys & Girls:
You have made it possible for a dream I have had—to have a good sound system for ministry events here at Red Top Ranch Trick Riding School in Boone, Colorado. This sound system will make communication more effective at cowgirl chapel services and will also provide adequate sound while teaching and training students who come from all over the U.S. and Europe to learn the art of trick riding.
From my years of performing Pro Rodeo as a professional trick rider, God has opened new doors of ministry opportunity. I now have an opening for over 75 students with their families, using trick riding as the platform for opportunities to share the gospel.
The sound system and music equipment will also be helpful at Sarah’s Home, a place of restoration and healing for girls rescued from the trafficking industry. These girls come twice a month or more, not only for equine therapy via horseback riding and one-on-one ministry, but also for devotions and music ministry time.
There are other specialized ministry “rodeo/playday” events that are held here throughout the year for children of adults who struggle with addictions. Here they have a place to come and just be a kid and enjoy some arena and horseback time.
Last summer we held our devotionals crowded together in a tiny spot of shade. Because of BGMC, materials for a deck cover are now bought and gathered. The cover will be in place in time for the schools that begin in April of 2021. What a blessing this will be for the kids to be able to cool off and have a shady spot to eat and to hold cowboy church services.
I have given to BGMC since I was a child, and now, as a missionary myself, I have been amazed as doors of opportunity have opened. I pray that the children who give to BGMC will themselves be called into ministry and have the honor of being the recipient of what they have so faithfully given into during their childhood years. It humbles me that I am now one of those missionaries I had always given to and prayed for during BGMC fundraisers. My heart is so full, and I am thankful beyond belief for this honor.
