Back in the States

We arrived back in the states in November. I am now at Lords Ranch in Newport, Washington. A recovery and discipleship ministry which houses 40 plus men with another 10 men living in Colville, Wa. in a church that we are using as a bible school and transitional housing. As ministry director of the Lords Ranch I have responsible for the daily operations of the ministry. Since my return I have been teaching numerous bible studies here every week.

The men here have opportunity to work with the horses which we train and ride, as they do we see joy, trust and responsibility restored into their lives. I am also involved on a personal level with the men here and am available for counsel and prayer at all times. From the Lord’s Ranch we send out teams weekly that go to the streets of Spokane to evangelize, share the love of God and their faith in Him

We take men from here at least once a month go to Seattle to share their faith in Christ Jesus and give out food to the homeless. That is just part of the training the men receive here at the Lord’s Ranch to prepare them for ministry. Another is that Matt Mixon one of the ministers is working with the men here, to do their second One Focus Youth Gathering (

Right now were in the process of putting together a mission’s team to go to Romania & Turkey this summer. Our plan is to establish a ministry base in Constanta, Romania. From there we will do friendship evangelism in the area, connecting also with other local ministries to team up and assist in sharing the Good News of our Savior. We will also be doing outreaches to the town’s and villages predominately reaching out to the Gypsy and Turkish communities. From our base we will be taking trips into Turkey. Currently we are helping individuals apply for their passports for the trip.

We have been fund raising also I have had the opportunity speak at four different churches and attended a missionary conference at another in the last couple months. Sharing our vision and inviting them to join us in prayer, support or to go over sea’s with us. I also extend an invitation to you to team up with us in expanding the Kingdom in the hearts and lives of all people.
