Welcome to this first Ministry Musings for 2020! Here I hope to share a few ministry thoughts and highlights in between the months you hear from me in a paper newsletter. My prayer is for you to know the impact you are having in the lives of teens each month. 
Bringing Mustangs and Teens Together
The Wild Hearts students I teach each week have gotten to be paired with our Stonewater Mustangs for the current 8-week session of classes. To see three years of dreaming, planning, and preparing come together into this space has been amazing. Your support of this ministry from the beginning means that these young women are now building relationships, skills, and wisdom they can carry with them throughout their lives. There is something about training and developing young horses that teaches a unique combination of proficiency, confidence, and humility. Nothing else I have experienced has taught me these skills quite so well. Now, these Mustang colts are helping us pass these lessons on to another generation of girls. 

Filling the Quiver
A constant prayer here is for a full quiver of staff for our busiest season of summer adventure trips. Right now, we are in the thick of interviews, recruiting trips, and training plans for our 2020 season. As horse staff, we are so thankful to have a NEW team member on our permanent staff team! Tracey has been volunteering with us for two years, and has now come on staff half-time to work alongside Ken and myself. We also are excited to have TWO summer staff who will be specializing in horsemanship for the summer. Along with some returning volunteers, this is the most full our horse staff quiver has been since I have worked here. What a blessing with Mustangs to be trained, camps to be ran, and day rides to guide. We continue to pray for provision of Summer Staff, as we have several openings still to fill. Specifically, that God will raise up young men to come serve and minister to the teen boys we will have adventuring with us. 
If you know a young man who has a heart to share his faith and a desire to be outdoors, I would love to connect him with our staffing manager!
