Dear Ministry Members,
As we progress towards the end of this year, we wish to share our ministry’s goals and financial needs with you, so that we might begin our next year together on a firm financial foundation.
This is a particularly pivotal coming year in the life of our two ministries.
The Ranch was begun by Eric Elder and his wife Lana some 23 years ago and This Day’s thought was started by Greg Potzer 20 years ago. If you will recall, these were the very early years of the Internet…web sites and email communications, social media.
During the earliest of these years, both ministries were operated individually, but at the same time both Greg and Eric worked together on many of aspects of their respectful goals.
Then, in 2012, both ministries joined together in a more unified presentation & approach, and thus, for the last 9 years have worked seamlessly together.
We now are in the process of prayerful plans to both go forward into our next year, separated once again in order to maximize all our present opportunities, but still so very unified in our goal to serve the Lord.
You have always been so very generous and supportive of our ministry needs and at this time we would humbly ask that you might consider your financial support for this next year. You have always heard us share, “we need so very little but we need that little so very much,” and we must admit that has never been so true and important as it is now, as we approach this year end.
We currently reach over 40,000 people each and every day, from over 160 countries, with our Christian “seed-for-a-day,” offering encouragement & inspiration, and we hope to expand our reach even further with the blessing of your prayers and gifts.
So, if you might prayerfully consider donating to these efforts, and help us lay the very best foundation to be able to go forward, we thank you for all you past gracious support and hope you will find it in your hearts to do so even more so as we begin many more years together, in our praise and celebration of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Thank you dearly. Greg and Eric

The happiest, sweetest, tenderest homes are not those where there has been no sorrow, but those which have been overshadowed with grief, and where Christ’s comfort was accepted.

“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”
