What a beautiful fall! The trees are bare already (and the leaves are all over the yard!). We have had our first two snowfalls. The outdoor wood stoves are puffing smoke and heating the houses. It is a beautiful time of year up here in the “Cool North Woods.” It has also been a great fall of ministry here at Victory.
We have four students you can pray for: Josh, Stephen, Michael, and Austin. We also have a few families that we are in-process with for enrollment. Please pray for God’s work in the boys and for wisdom for our staff to minister the Gospel effectively. We so want to see God grow these young men in the men He wants them to be.
One “tool” that God has graciously given us this year is our mountain biking program. It is part of our work and activity program (WORCS-Work Outdoor Recreation Career Skills). The trails and bike maintenance programs have taken a leap this year with a lot of “man-hours” invested inn them. We now have over two miles of great single track for the mountain bikes. (Let me give a push for our #GivingTuesday promotion. We are raising funds for a snow groomer for our trails so we can use them on our winter months with our fat tire bikes.) The boys are already riding the trails and learning bike maintenance and look forward to riding the snow-bike trails this winter.
We want to encourage our supporters and churches to come up and visit. We have a beautiful facility with a lot of great things to do and we would love for you to see the ministry in action and visit with our staff. Plan a visit this year!
May God continue to bless the Gospel work here and in you as you serve the Great God right where He has you.
