I teach riding lessons out at the barn that John and Monique use for MSR. It is wonderful to watch their interaction with everyone who they come across. When you meet them you feel like you have known them forever. To watch them do anything out there is a joy, but mostly watching them deal with the kids. Every kid feels important and heard when they are with the Black's. I am so excited that they may be close to a place of their own but the barn will definitely feel like something is missing when they leave.
I am one of the youth students at CSM . Recently we had a worship night at MSR. It was such a life changing experience. You can tell the animals were happy. They had plenty of food and clean water. We played a fun game of soccer, with a giant soccer ball. The Black's are extremely friendly, and they take you in with a smile and an open heart. The purpose on which the ranch was created is touching, and the one who had the idea was such a great person and is extremely missed. MSR has come to be a great non-profit Organization that has such a greater future, but all they need is a place of their own to plant their seed.
