This is my mom's blog but her goal was to blog about once a week and since she is away I am going to guest blog today.
I am Meredith Peters, Ed and Anita's daughter, I sit on the board for the Soaring Wings Ministries and I have had the joy of watching God's plan continue to develop as God leads them. My dad first talked about this vision to help the homeless and what he had felt God leading him to do when he retired but mom was not talking about it. After continual prayer and more guidance from God both my parents were on the same plan to give up what they thought they would do when they both retired and instead follow God into the next stage of their lives.
It is an amazing blessing to watch as my parents faithfully step out into an adventure that God has called them to. To think that two people, both social workers, who have worked hard will not be just sitting in the sun in Florida for their retirement but they will be helping more and living where there could be even more snow must be a calling from God. I don't know many people who would give up so much to follow God but my parents are aware that this is what will bring a true blessing to them and that no retirement could be a better adventure than the adventure of following Jesus!
The need is real and to listen to them talk about Soaring Wings Ranch brings them much joy. God has some great plans in the ranch and through my parents and it is a true act of faithfulness for my parents to be excited to serve God by helping the homeless in Colorado.
Please pray for Ed and Anita as they prepare through upcoming fundraisers and support drives and please pray for God to continue to lead and direct them. Please also pray for the people in Colorado that my parents will be working with that they may have soft hearts and continue to seek Hope through the giver of continual Hope, Jesus!
In Christ's Love,
Anita Rennells is the author of this blog. She and her husband have moved to Colorado when Ed retired and are in the process of opening a ranch to help homeless young adults.
