As I shared with many friends, I spent my birthday morning with 2 young men, ages 9 and 10, sitting on my knee, and guiding them on their deer hunt. The 9 year old Nathaniel harvested his first deer and the 10 year old, Frank harvested his 2nd deer. These are adventures and experiences of a lifetime that will never be forgotten.
And being able to share God's Love for them, and how He desires a relationship with us is such a bonus.
Helping Guide these kids to Christ or a closer relationship with HIM is our mission... Our CTO Vision Statement reads: we are building lifelong friendships with these kids through the outdoors. What a way to honor relationship, and I wouldn't have it any other way on my birthday!
What do you value the most about relationships? Trust, Sacrifice, Honesty, Respect, Love?
God so LOVED the world HE gave is only son! (John 3:16)
This is how we know what LOVE is: Jesus Christ laid down HIS life for us (1 John 3:16). The disciples asked Jesus, "What is the most important commandment?" "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind, and strength." "The second is Love your neighbor as you Love yourself." (Matt 22:36-40)
We just visited Mike & Tamara Scotch, owners of the M&T Ranch in Rocksprings for the 10th season.This is our longest standing, landowner relationship in CTO. Love, Trust, Respect, Sacrifice, it's all in order, that represents their love and commitment to these boys, and an opportunity to give back.
Thank you for your service and supporting our ministry! If we LOVE one another, God lives in us and His LOVE is made complete in us! (1 John 4:12)
