Jesus And Kids Evangelistic Saddle Club (JAKES Club) we have exciting news for you all this month. Let me just say, “May has been AWESOME and we’re only in week two!”
So much has happened in a short period of time and there is so much to be thankful for. JAKES Club is remembering our 2018 Bible scripture in Psalm 65:11 “You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.” Our Lord is doing just that within all of JAKES Club’s departments! Let me share.
JAKES Club’s 2018 spring and early summer Volunteer Saddle Club (VSC) and Therapeutic Saddle Club (TSC) programs all began the first week of May. Normally VSC would begin working with the horses and new riding patterns in April. However the Board voted to save Luke and Numbers for TSC this season since we are low on horses. Speaking of horses please continue to pray for new quarter horse geldings with Lesson experience. This would enable the new horses to be used in the programs faster.
We have a huge praise report in regards to new horse stall preparations. JAKES Club volunteers came out Saturday, May 12, 2018 and began updating stall #5 to have access to its own turn-out lot. Cutting out old barn support post/wood and replacing with CCA post in concrete. Wow, hard work but very much appreciated! Thanks to all JAKES Club volunteers for a great work day!
Since we are sharing about the barn, and giving thanks, please join me in thanking and welcoming JAKES Club new “Preppies!” Everyone has been blessed on Tuesday and Wednesday because of the great barn and riding arena preparations by two awesome gals. Thank you Jen and Judy for making the new “Preppie” program a wonderful success. Bless you!
Speaking of NEW everyone please make welcome 15 new VSC and TSC participants. Therapeutic Saddle Club has had great success and we are very thankful to share the Love of Christ and horses with so many new and wonderful people. At the Board meeting Friday night May 4, 2018 Kaleb Ray read our ministry scripture from Luke 18:15 “And they brought unto Him also infants, that He may touch them …”Amen! May JAKES Club continue to reach children for Jesus one child with one horse at a time.
JAKES Club needs your prayers for another new endeavor Saturday, June 16, 2018. The Board is in the planning stages to have a fundraiser here at the farm. “Horsey Hay Day” will invite the public (through FaceBook and you) to bring children for a fun afternoon at the farm. We hope you will spread the word, come out for some horsey fun and support our summer fundraiser. Yay!
Okay, that’s about it for May, please continue to pray for all of JAKES Club’s departments and remember to order your shirt on www.JAKESClub.org “Shop” page or through FaceBook. It only goes to May 25th however we will be opening the apparel shop again in September. Woo-Hoo!
As always, come see the children ride, please remember JAKES Club in your prayers as we will be remembering you.
