News & Updates From The Ranch
Not a day goes by here on The Ranch where there is not an opportunity to share the hope of Christ to the
boys that the Lord has put in our care for a "season." Welding in the metal shop, preparing to ride one of the horses here or putting that final sanding on a bowl turned on the lathe in the wood shop. Each of these activities provides a mentoring opportunity.

You have chosen to use that which the Lord has blessed you with to bless these boys and their families and we say Thank you! We trust you are encouraged by what you read below. Thank you for your part in the life change we see here daily! To God Be the Glory!

Thank You for Making a Difference!
You may never meet the boys you bless here but the impact you are making in their lives is real!

How about this note from a recent graduate.

" Thanks so much I’ve been praying a lot for wisdom and insight in things that are to come. I would have never been able to know or be close with GOD if it weren’t for Salem. So thank you for showing me the love of Christ. I hope maybe this fall I can come out and spend some time out at the ranch."

Where are they now?
When you bless the ministry here you are not only helping young men but you are also ministering to their families. One question we often get is "Once the boys leave do you ever hear from them and hear how they are doing?" The answer is a resounding, YES!

The young man in the photo is Kyle and he was here on The Ranch in 2014. When he first came he was a handful but over time he grew and matured. Just last week he sent us this photo and update. At the current time he is serving our country with the Marines at Camp Pendleton and is doing well! He is about to deploy in November. Please remember him in your prayers.

Trusting the Lord for these boys and their families. Thank you for your partnership in the Gospel!
2 Timothy 2:15
Attendance was voluntary. How blessed we are to see a room full of young men this past Saturday evening gathered to study and discuss the Bible led by a couple of our staff members. We believe that there is a hunger for the truth in these boys as evidenced by this gathering.
Attendance was voluntary. To God Be the Glory!

The Need is Great
