Overwhelmed ... There have been times in my life that I have experienced this, when I have found myself insufficient to handle what has come my way. "Life can do that." Overwhelmed ... There have been times in my life that I have experienced this, when I have found myself ... and God is so sufficient and efficient. "God can do that." With all summed up, we have been amazed at the response and concern of many. I was talking to a rancher friend just a few nights ago. Their community was on the outskirts of the October 2013 blizzard and he was calling to get a firsthand update of where we were at and what the needs would be. He said, "God will provide and sometimes He uses people." Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful." We have been amazed at the peace that has been imparted to us. Certainly we have questions ... But there are answers. Certainly we find ourselves tired at times ... but there is rest. Certainly the future looks challenging ... but we know Who holds the future. And certainly the trail ahead looks rough ... but we do not walk alone. Each day folks like you amaze us with your desire to help. I have done much praying and pondering. And I am convinced that we do not need to live our life defeated or in want. God has provided the victory and He knows our needs. He just wants us to be dependent upon His faithfulness. Not in a leverage sort of way, but rather out of appreciation and love. For when we receive His abundance in that mindset, our hearts will find it impossible to contain His love and it will overflow to the world around us. And our relationship with The Almighty will grow in love as well as admiration and desire. In Christ´┐Żs Service, Larry B. Reinhold Executive Directo
