WE HAVE A ROUND PEN!
We are very excited to announce that Risen Ridge Ministry now has a beautiful, 60' round pen! This arena will be a wonderful tool to help our guests work with the horses in a focused environment. Both the guest and the horse can work together in a beautiful, safe, environment tucked into the hillside.
Not only is it wonderful to have this amazing space to do the Lord's work, but looking back over the past 8 months and seeing the many hands that went into making this a reality is a huge blessing. From location consultations, excavators, footing consultations, footing installation, donation of the round pen, putting the wood around the bottom, and finally bringing it to the barn and setting it up; so many hearts and hands serving the Lord in this way. As usual, I put together a little video of the process. Hope you enjoy!
2019 - A Year in Review
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
Some of you may remember what Risen Ridge looked like in January of 2019. We had 2 board members (we needed 3 to file for our nonprofit), we had shared at our home church, we had a group of about 10 people who had faithfully gathered a handful of times to learn more about this crazy vision that our family had. We didn't have a farm, or horses, or a logo, or business cards, or any money at all. Only a God-sized dream. None but our close circle of friends and family really had any idea that this vision had been placed on our hearts. Our family had been funding the ministry for small things, like the website, but we completely ran out of money in November of 2018, so none of what happened in 2019 was anything but God's mighty hand of provision. 2020 has started off with a bang so I want to make sure we take just a minute to thank God for the way He has grown Risen Ridge Ministry in 2019.
