Just a reminder, as we approach the final days of 2016, that every donation to The Ranch is fully tax-deductible. Thanks to 125 of you, we raised $10,422 during our annual November fundraiser, putting us within striking distance of our goal of $12,000 for the year. If you’d like to help us reach our goal–and you want your gift to count towards your 2016 taxes–just make a donation online by midnight, December 31st at the link below, or send a check, postmarked by December 31st to: Eric Elder Ministries, 25615 E 3000 North Rd, Chenoa, IL. Thank you!
I’ve never met anyone who became instantly mature. It’s a painstaking process that God takes us through, and it includes such things as waiting, failing, losing, and being misunderstood–each calling for extra doses of perseverance.
Finally, brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.
2 Corinthians 13:11
The New King James Version
If I were giving a young man advice as to how he might succeed in life, I would say to him, pick out a good father and mother, and begin life in Ohio.
