Sevierville, TN:Saturday Morning (Milestone Trip #25)

Good morning prayer partners!  Thank you for your faithful coverage.  We all have arrived safely at the Ranch.  

All team members have safely  arrived.

This mornings we were blessed with the testimonies of two of the Ranch residents, Susan who has lived here for several years and Charity who came to live here this past August.  In a word: WOW. We were also blessed to hear James Murray testimony of salvation and grace.  

Early morning ... a bit of nip in the air but we just bundled up and got busy working.
