BENEFITING: HUGS FOR HORSES AND CHILDREN YOUTH RANCH INC
ORGANIZER: HUGS FOR HORSES AND CHILDREN YOUTH RANCH INC
My name is Grace Drew. This is my third year volunteering as a wrangler at H.U.G.S. Ranch. The ranch has been such a blessing to me and so many others. Working at the ranch offers new opportunities I wouldn't have gotten otherwise. The ranch gives me a chance to work as the hands and feet of Christ. I can share Christ with some of the families that do not know Him. I really enjoy working with the new kids that come each year and to spend time with the horses. H.U.G.S. gives encouragement to so many families.
I absolutely love to listen to the kids. They are so full of energy and excitement, or nervous and scared to ride. I like seeing all the different personalities God has made. It is incredible! The children are always so much fun to work with! They usually come and are quiet but by the third or fourth week they just can't help but talk, smile, and laugh. God's love is shown to them at H.U.G.S. and they are blessed as much as the mentors and wranglers. We volunteer to be a blessing but we are blessed in the process. It is an awesome experience.
Volunteering here is one of my favorite things to do all year. It is never boring and there's always something to be done. God has place me here not only to help others but to help me in my walk with Him. I have grown spiritually and socially while working at H.U.G.S.
Please help support H.U.G.S. Ranch, where the Son shines and wounded hearts heal. "In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. " Matthew 5:16.
