Thank you.

To all those who read this blog. This is a testimony of God's power to anyone who wants to pursue a ministry to accomplish the purpose that He has written for our lives. If we trust in Him completely, He will guide our steps so His Ministry becomes a well watered garden growing fruit to His perfection, not limited by any physical sense, but everything supplied by Him.

"And my God will meet all my needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19

Enjoy the journey with me.

We're Ready Lord

Since my last post after Christmas, I can honestly say, Rein of Faith Ministries in 2013 is in such a good place exceeding any vision I could have ever imagined for the ministry.   We have a core group of extraordinary women, who put there heart and soul into the ministry and have the same vision and passion as I do making this journey such a huge blessing where people can just feel the power and love of God and His Holy Spirit through us when they are there.   Being around women who care as much as I do, not only for each other, but for the horses, and the participants confirms the reason why this ministry was born in the first place.  I also know that as time goes on, this core group will continue to grow strong and in numbers.  We are ready Lord to take on the next phase; bring us to another level of serving You and Your precious children!!   Ephesians 3:20 "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".

In January, we got a new horse named Dakota. A picture of him is below with Molly and Becka.  He came to us pretty spoiled and in great need of Camp David!!  He was donated to us by a friend of one of our volunteers who no longer had the time needed to develop and train him to be a safe and reliable horse.  After 3 months of daily, consistent training by David, we know for sure that in no time we will have a horse that will meet the requirement of the ministry.  It is so very important that all of our horses serve a place in the ministry. We always want to make sure that we are good stewards of the financial blessings we receive from the Lord to operate.  We will never put the ministry at risk financially and take horses that serve no purpose. Every cent we spend is prayed upon first!!  Sometimes we need to make hard decisions on what to do with horses that don't serve our need.  We definately are not a horse rescue.  We just can not be.  That was never the purpose of the ministry in the first place and I have to be careful not to wander away from our purpose.

In February we had planned to participate in the Fred Rathbun Memorial Special Olympics once again, but it was cancelled due to rain.  They have rescheduled for November 2.  The great thing about planning for this event, however, was the desire to have t-shirts printed in order for us to have a cohesive, recognizable group for the event.  Even though we did not need the t-shirts for this event, I still went ahead and put together an order form to see what the interest would be for the t-shirts.  Almost everyone ordered one.   I have some extra for sale if any one wants one depending on size, so just let me know.

March 30th was our 2nd Annual Car Wash Fundraiser and Bake Sale, so I made sure we had the t-shirts in time for that event. The fundraiser was a huge success again, earning us over $1800.  Before we got started, when we were all in our circle to do the Code of Excellence, I put in a demand to the Kingdom for $1500 or more and sure enough, God delivered. It's what His Word says!!!  Philippians 4:6  "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God" and also Luke 6:38 Jesus said  "Give, and it will be given to you.  A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”   So it is because of His Word that we can ask for such things!!   Amen!!!

With the money from the car wash I bought six, six panel fencing to replace the sad fencing that we currently have.  I also bought fresh rice hulls which we will use in our stalls.  With summer coming, I want to make sure that we keep the unpleasant urine odor to a minimum and the rice hulls do a great job at that.

Also, one of our mom's/participants took some fun pictures on a Saturday so you can see what a typical Saturday looks like at the barn.

Enjoy the pictures!!!
