Diejenigen unter euch, die mich (Melli) ein wenig kennen, wissen, dass hiermit ein Traum und ein Gebetsanliegen wahr werden. Ich habe mich mehr als freiwillig zu diesem Kurs angemeldet und werde versuchen, noch ein paar Leute aus der Gemeinde fuer diesen Dienst zu begeistern.
Yesterday we visited a couple, that has a beautiful ranch with 6 horses, not too far away from us. The two of them started an association a couple of years ago, and are now organizing holidays on horseback for kids and youth with a socially weak background and/or broken family situation. They want to expand this ministry, offering free riding lessons during the week to this target group. For this they need volunteers, that already have some experience with horses. These volunteers go through a basic training of how to plan out a riding lesson, and are then assigned a child/ teenager, with which they work on regular riding lessons. The goal is also to build up relationships through this that can help the kids in everyday life.
Those of you that know me (Melli) a little, know that this is a dream come true and prayer request answered. I signed up for this training more than willing, and will try to recruit some more people from church for this ministry.
