At 51:10 each child is a precious gift that for one moment in their week we get to connect. Side-by-side we work and learn about life skills and they begin to trust you to hear their moments of the week and their thoughts. Pouring His love into their lives, supporting them in small ways is a blessing from our Lord. My life and heart is so much more full at the end of each session.
My relationship with God has changed through my experience with 51:10. The horses are a picture of God for me. They are mighty and powerful and yet they allow us to get close to them. There's also a gentleness to them. God also chooses to be close to us and He wants that closeness with us. In my time here, I came to realize that God called me here for me. It's a ranch for kids, but the space is truly for everybody.
My mentor is awesome. It was fun making a giant Jenga with him. I love making other kids happy and giant Jenga is going to make a lot of kids happy. God loves us man!
I love having a mentor. You are sure lucky to have me as a child at 51:10. My mentor is my best friend. I love riding on Sugar and trotting on Sugar. My mentor will always be a friend of mine.
51:10 has given our daughter a passion for horses that we did not even know was there! She loves every minute of being with the 51:10 horses and crew members. It has given her a desire to pursue/work with horses in her future. It is so amazing to see passion in your baby, and we are forever grateful to 51:10 for giving that to her!
Thank you for letting us come to the ranch. I love getting to go to the ranch and I love to see all of the staff. I love Firecracker too.
My kids have been involved with 51:10 for years now and have had such a great experience! From nurturing mentors, to creative activities, 51:10 always goes above and beyond. Our lives are richer because of our involvement with this amazing program and ministry!
"Interning at 51:10 was not what I expected. It was better and definitely more of a challenge than I thought. Challenges that helped me grow. Getting to have a personal connection with the kids was incredible. God showed up in so many ways and the people at the ranch have taught me life lessons that I will forever remember. Feeling the presence of God truly does something special to you. It was a great experience."
