God Is On The Move!

King's Ranch is pleased to announce that John and Kimberly James have officially been hired as house parents for the ranch. They and their two daughters have relocated to Jonesboro from Monette, AR. this summer. John, a former police officer, left the police force in search of more family-friendly hours and is currently employed with the Arkansas Highway Department. Kimberly has been the director of Discovery Island for the past 8 years where she received extensive training in working with children from many diverse backgrounds. Kimberly has left her job to stay home full-time with the ranch kids.We believe they are the ones God has chosen for this job, and they also feel that God has placed a calling on this season of their lives to serve in this capacity at King's Ranch.

Also joining our team is Shelly Horton,LAC from Families, Inc. who has valuable experience counseling children, and social worker Jessica McClendon who has had experience working with children from City Youth, DCFS, and orphans in Bagiuo City, Philippines. We are so thankful that the Lord has led each of them to us. His timing is perfect!

We have been busy putting the finishing touches on the home in anticipation of the children who will soon arrive. We have several leads on children in desperate need and are checking into these situations currently.


Please pray for the James family as they transition to Jonesboro. Pray that God would empower them to minister to the children who will be in their care. Pray that God would lead us to the children He wants to bring to the ranch. He knows who they are and where they are. Pray for us as we implement training we received in Reactive Attachment Disorder in North Carolina recently. Please pray about becoming a monthly donor to the ranch as our expenses will increase significantly with these recent developments. If you would like to become a donor, please contact us at

We are thankful for all that God is doing and how He is going to work in the lives of children in need! Only He can bind up broken hearts! We are privileged to get to be a part of it! Thank you for joining us!
