Ice Storm!

As many of you, we are still busy cleaning up after the ice storm that hit Jonesboro earlier this month! It was an interesting and trying time for all us but also a time where we saw God working in amazing ways! King's Ranch was so blessed to have the opportunity to minister to a foster family who was displaced from their home. They had a 6 month old little girl, a 2 year old little boy, a 3 year old little girl, and a 16 year old girl, and had been staying in a shelter for five days. Needless to say they were extremely exhausted by the time they got to King's Ranch! They were able to stay in the home until their electricity was restored a week later. What a precious family and sweet kids! We were so glad to get to be a small part of blessing the lives of these children.

We were the recipients of blessing when a crew of volunteers showed up to help with the clean up at the home! There were several trees down and a large limb on top of the house. Fortunately there was no permanent damage and the limb was removed. Thank you to our wonderful volunteers! We cannot thank you enough for giving of your time!
