Desire Ministries
October 16, 2012

Desire Ministries serves people and horses. By rescuing horses that might be otherwise be euthanized, these animals regain trust and eventual love of human beings. The adults and children who are introduced to rescued and rehabilitated horses gain innumerable benefits by becoming an integral piece in the equine healing. This beautiful ministry heals people and horses, alike. Kristy Alvarez is certified in numerous equine therapies, each one overlapping the specific needs of her clients. I can not think of a non profit that is more deserving of recognition and support than Desire Ministries. It is in a word; awesome.

What an inspiration it has been to have volunteered at an open house event for Desire Ministries.
The depth of equine understanding and human compassion that Kristy has, just blew me away. I'd been aware of Kristy's education in counseling and her lifelong horsemanship experiences, but to see these combined skills put into action right before my eyes was just astounding.
During a riding event opportunity, I witnessed a withdrawn, anxious horse-shy child gain enough confidence to not only sit upon a horse; with Kristy's guidance, but to actually relax, focus and ENJOY riding. This beautiful transformation all took place as Kristy's people and horse skills, combined, gave comfort and confidence to a shy child and afforded a wonderfully therapeutic experience.
This memory will always stay with me, as I felt like i saw a child take it's first steps.....
Desire Ministries has helped countless other children as well as rescued horses that might have otherwise been discarded.
These horses have not only recovered, but flourished, under the care of Kristy.
In order for Desire Ministries to reach it's full potential, they need to purchase property with a barn.
To some this may sound like an impossible undertaking, but the miracle that I witnessed is enough to convince me that Desire Ministries is destined for success with my help and yours.
Please join me in supporting this wonderful Nonprofit Organization transform lives, one at a time....
