Can't wait to see you here in Appalachia October 19, 20, and 21!
News from Revelation Ranch in Letcher County, Kentucky
We have the horses, God has provided the 40 acres, and all we need now is a barn! Mark your calendar and bring your hands and feet to our barnraising on October 19, 20 and 21 in Letcher County, Ky. The horses in the photo above--Malachi, James and Paul--and all the rest! will be glad to greet you and be grateful for your labors. Other activities will be provided for children and those whose skills are inclined to giftmaking rather than barnraising.
If you want to show your support of our efforts but can't attend, donations can be made to Boggs' Builders Supply in Whitesburg, Ky at 606-633-8446. Speak to Julie! She will be glad to let you know what we need and will accept your donation to our non-profit organization.
More information about our permanent location will be coming soon. It's a done deal--God has provided generously, and we hope you will join our prayers of thankfulness and prayers for guidance as we begin to settle in to serve here.

**Revelation Ranch is the ministry of Peri and Ricardo Pardo. In an effort to support their work for the benefit of the children of Letcher County, I am pleased to keep you updated about their ministry on my blog. I don't live in Letcher County, but I sure will be attending the barnraising! --Pam Richards

I love that these kids use mime to tell a story about God's love with power. I love that they perform anywhere, anytime, just to spread that love around. I love that I have witnessed this team demonstrating God's love at Revelation Ranch. And then, there's the fact that they perform barefoot in church. . . that pushes it right over the edge for me.
These kids come up with the majority of their own material, set to music that appeals to them--mostly Contemporary Christian Music.
Not too surprisingly, they were using two of Rich Mullins' songs when I first contacted them. But none of them was aware Richard's father had grown up like them, in Letcher County Kentucky--just on the other side of Pine Mountain.
As an audience member, I was not the only one moved to tears.
I am amazed, and humbled to find my understanding confirmed. . . that love creates art, and the Holy King of Israel loves you and me right here in America.
God help me, I'm an artist.
