Megan’s Ranch Update
What’s been happening
Greetings from Miracle Mountain Ranch!
This year has been adventurous, full of life events and I’m excited to fill you in. Let’s jump back to Summer for a minute. The staff (and I’m sure the kids) were thrilled with Summer Camp returning to a full summer once again, with the return of overnight camp. With a packed camp season, we had the privilege of hosting over 1,100 youth. As resident camp returned so did WILDERNESS CAMP! This was the first chance I had to organize and run Girls Wilderness Camp. It was an amazing week full of plenty of opportunities to share the gospel and make memories.
The Summer was incredible; however, it was certainly a challenge on a personal level. It was a struggle keeping up with the demands of time and it was a gradual battle to fight off burn out half way through the season. I was immensely blessed by the people and staff God pulled together to make this past summer a success and lifted me up when energy was waning.
This fall I organized the Ladies Retreat event alone for the first time. We enjoyed that fellowship with the many women who attended and heard biblical truth shared by the staff women who spoke for the weekend.
As we all enjoy the holidays with family, it was a joy to get to celebrate with our local families. This December we hosted our Community Christmas Party, it was wonderful getting to see so many faces we were separated from over these past few years.
Beyond that I am also looking forward as there are big life changes ahead of me. This October my boyfriend, Simeon Wallace came to surprise me for my birthday. A few weeks later he proposed while we were on vacation…and I said YES! We would covet your prayers as we look to organize plans and finances. As we have been working hard on this relationship across the Canadian border, there is still much to figure out.
Being Refreshed in God
If you would like to pray for my ministry at the ranch here are a few areas to keep in your thoughts:
- Lots of helping hands to help on expanding our staff housing.
- Great turnouts in our winter retreats.
- That the kids that braved the rough weather and arrived at camp safely.
- All of our students arrived safely at home to encourage social distancing and they will get to continue classes online.
- Summer Camp preparations and our summer staff as we build our team for summer 2020.
- Monthly support. Currently I am at 50% of my needed monthly support.
- School of Discipleship, as they are figuring out the departments they will be serving in for the summer.
- For the leadership at the ranch and making decisions of how best to respond to the ever developing changes due to the virus.
- New bunkhouse fund, we are still trying to raise money to build a new bunkhouse housing unit.
Myself and all the staff at the ranch raise mission support to cover expenses.
