I couldn't end 2013 without posting a great, big THANK YOU to our many friends and family who have come alongside us in 2013 to launch Soaring Wings Ministries. Ed and I have always said that we would never be able to accomplish this on our own and so we are tremendously grateful for each and everyone of you who have encouraged us, prayed for us, prayed with us, supported us financially and believed in the vision that God has given us for Soaring Wings Ministries.
Ed and I are not wealthy people and we don't have wealthy friends and relatives but just as God was able to feed 5,000 people with a meager offering of loaves and bread, so He is able to push Soaring Wings Ministries forward with your prayers, donations and your belief in the vision to help the homeless. On January 6th Soaring Wings Ministries will officially purchase a small house on 40 acres at 499 Trinity Lane in Wellington, Colorado!!! The purchase of this property is a testimony to what God can do when generous, praying and believing people come together to help the poor and needy homeless families in Colorado. We know most of you personally and know that you have given of your time and money sacrificially. Many of you are pressed for time with jobs and family responsibilities. Some of you are unemployed and looking for work. Some of you are investing your time and money into starting a new business. Some of you are single parents living on one income. Some of you have unforeseen medical expenses. Some of you are raising money for your own ministries. Some of you are retired living on a fixed income. Some of you have young children that zap your time, energy and money……and yet…….so many of you have found the time to put aside your own needs and desires to support Soaring Wings Ministries. Because of your sacrificial love, care and support, Soaring Wings Ministries will begin 2014 with a small home on 40 acres on the front range of the Rocky Mountains with zero debt. On behalf of all the homeless children, young adults and families that you will help we THANK YOU! Are hearts are full of humility, joy, love and gratitude for each and everyone of you.
We serve an amazing God and we THANK Him for all of His blessings and guidance during this past year. Without Him and without you we would not be where we are. We pray that God will bless each and everyone of you during 2014! We pray that you will find fantastic jobs that you love. We pray that you and your families will be blessed with good health. We pray that you will find time during your busy schedules to relax and enjoy yourselves, your families and God's blessings. We pray that those of you who are single, will find loving mates (if you want one!). We pray for flourishing business in your new endeavors. We pray that you will have strength to accomplish your many responsibilities. We pray that you will have time to come visit us out in Colorado!!!! Most of all we pray that you will walk closely with God and that He will be your guide, comforter and strength during 2014.
With much love and gratitude to all of you,
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.
