The Good You’re Doing
It really has been an awesome year, let’s walk back and see just how impactful your support has been!
In January we launched the Rancho Milagro Youth Program, led by Mike & Lisa Hansen from Power Over Predators Program. Drawing from her own experience and conquering the shame that kept her isolated, Lisa became an advocate for the oppressed. For over twenty years, her mission has been to abolish child sexual exploitation through extraordinary outreach and straightforward prevention education for youth. Thanks to YOUR support, our Youth Program kids have gained invaluable knowledge and skills to protect themselves and others from sexual abuse. They have developed a heightened sense of personal boundaries, self-confidence, and the ability to recognize potentially harmful situations. Our training has not only empowered them with the tools to speak up against abuse but has also fostered a culture of trust and open communication, creating a safer and more supportive environment for all. Ultimately, our efforts are equipping our youth with the resilience and awareness needed to navigate a world where they can thrive free from the threat of sexual abuse.
We have greatly enjoyed coming alongside other organizations working to bring healing to the nation one soul at a time. We were happy to host Restoring Wholeness Ministries, whose goal is to help post-abortive women find freedom from guilt and shame. Valors for Veterans came for a networking event to strengthen relationships in the Veteran community and highlight the importance of supporting one another in a lonely world. We also hosted some private events to bring awareness of the work and benefits of RMF and our mission.
And then of course there’s all the clients we’ve served through our Equine Therapy Sessions! We have had the pleasure of working with veterans, abuse survivors, kids with developmental challenges, and others to take one more step towards their healing. Clients have reported back about their therapy saying:
“It was incredible for a group of active duty and veteran women to get together in an environment where we all lacked familiarity. It gave us an opportunity to come together on level ground allowing us to be more open to working together and learning from each other. There was also something special about connecting with horses and being out in nature.”
“I could sense the abundant energies simply by walking into the ranch, and going through a session validated it.”
“The session I went through allowed me to start dealing with what I have been struggling with more fully. It helped me to start putting to rest things I wasn’t sure I could. I also have been able to speak up even more for myself.”
During our Summer Youth Camp, a precious 7 year old was able to process the lies she had been told about herself and replaced them with the truth about who she is.
It is solely your support making this happen. These testimonies and events we’ve held are just a drop in the bucket of all we’ve accomplished this year, thanks to YOU!
MAJOR THANK YOU!
The ripples of impact will continue throughout the rest of their lives, even spilling into the lives of others we’ll never meet. How cool is that? Being the light in this dark world brings us so much joy and satisfaction.
