God Never Ceases To Amaze Us...

I have to admit that we were wondering if the rummage sale would be worth all the work it took to get it together, but God did so much more than we could have imagined. We raised almost $1000 dollars on the first day. That night we talked about how we probably would not make much the next day because all of our merchandise was gone. Wrong again!! God amazed us by sending a $1000 dollar donation by 8:30am that morning! The grand total for the whole weekend was almost $2900 dollars! WOW!

As if that were not enough, we were contacted by KAIT about doing a story on King's Ranch and promoting the rummage sale. They did a wonderful story that ran on Friday. We will be posting the video on our blog soon for all who missed it when it aired. Several people came to the sale because they saw the story and we've had several calls from interested supporters!
We were so blessed to have had several people volunteer for setting up , helping customers, and clean up! Thank you to our helpers!! We could not have done it without you!!

"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, to him be glory in the chuch and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!" Ephesians 3:20-21

News from the Ranch

The dinner for our prospective advisory board was a great success!! We had 48 people who attended to hear more about King's Ranch and consider joining us as advisory board members! God definitely was there and the holy spirit empowered Eddie and I to give our testimonies and share the vision He has given us for King's Ranch! Speaking in front of people is one of my greatest fears and as it turns out, running King's Ranch is going to require a lot of that. Once again, God reminds me that when I am weak, He is strong! Please pray for those who are still deciding about joining the board.

Eddie met with the city planner a week or so ago. They have found a cost effective way for us to proceed with building our first house. Just as we were preparing to submit our application to the Metropolitan Area Planning Commission, a house came up for sale that adjoins our property. Please pray that if this is God's leading that we could agree on a reasonable price. We need God to light the path for us in this matter- build or buy? We will let you know more details as this situation progresses.

Rummage Sale is next weekend. We are still taking donated pre-priced items up until Wednesday. You can drop it off at 1005 Rossland Drive. We also would love to have any volunteers to help take money, set up merchandise, etc.

We can't express to you how your encouragement and support helps us keep pressing on even in the face of opposition. Thank you so much!

All for the King,

Eddie and Lee
