In 2022, we completed the construction of our new Broken Wagon Ranch House in Southeast AL, built to minister to hurting young families here in the U.S. Our goal is to minister to young families who have lost a child (or if one of the young parents have died) as a place of retreat on our Ranch to get away, spend time with God, be refreshed and begin the long healing process of losing a loved one. We also built it to minister to young families who have a severely injured or seriously/terminally ill child (or if one of the young parents are) to serve as a retreat on the ranch where they can get away and just make treasured memories together as a family while they still have one another. The Ranch House is offered free of charge for 3-10 days per family. The refrigerator, freezer and pantry are always stocked. If the family cannot cook, we will cook for them.
We have several adventures and activities available that will be enjoyable, entertaining and informative. Families can choose what they want to do while they are here and all of them are free to the families. Excursions include horseback riding, Chuckwagon cooking, cattle drives, a petting zoo, a vegetable garden, fishing, shooting, side by side rides (through the woods, pastures and down dirt roads), crafts, hiking, boat rides and tubing (when in season), visits to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico - rightly referred to as "The World's Most Beautiful Beaches" - and more! Chuckwagon rides and overnight Chuckwagon camping will be available as soon as we can get a horse/mule team to pull the wagon.
We ask that you help us get the word out about The Broken Wagon Ranch House with your Churches, Organizations, Businesses, Communities and families. It is overwhelming to learn just how many families are facing these horrific trials and who do not know where to turn.
Since everything is provided to the hurting families free of charge (including food), we also ask that you help us fund this ministry financially, with non-cash gifts, and if you are local, with your time, services.
