Dear friends of SkyWatch TV and Whispering Ponies Ranch
I am writing this personal letter to you today as one of our ministry partners to update you on very exciting news!
FIRST—I am happy to announce that recently we took a major step of faith and expanded to several new television networks including GloryStar, Angel One, GEB, Impact Network, Comcast Cable, Spectrum Cable, Glorystar and several more (you can find the full listings on our website at: http://www.skywatchtv.com/channels/). Next month, Lord willing, we hope to increase our reach to even more networks as we push forward to continue our God-given responsibility to R.E.A.C.T.:
- REACH THE WORLD with the Gospel of Jesus Christ
- EDUCATE THE CHURCH about His Second Coming
- ACTIVATE MASS COMMUNICATION for spreading biblical theology
- CONFIRM THE FAITH through books and documentaries publishing
- TO PROVIDE COST-FREE MINISTRY AT THE WHISPERING PONIES THERAPY RANCH (WPR) to those that need it most (in fulfillment of our Lord’s command in Matthew 25: 31-40 and James 1:27).
SECOND—As you know, Nita and I have invested our life’s savings into this ministry, in order to spread the saving knowledge of Jesus to the world as well as to REMEMBER THE FORGOTTEN CHILDREN AND ADULTS that sadly so many “ministries” overlook, such as the abused and discarded kids and adults you are helping us reach—and heal—at Whispering Ponies Ranch.
For those that have “Sponsored a WPR Therapy Pony” with a one-time gift or monthly pledge as well as those who might want to consider doing so, we are pleased to report we have exceeded the goals presented to you last year at the Pony Sponsors Banquet in Norman, Oklahoma. At that dinner we presented an aggressive plan to finish critical infrastructure and those buildings necessary to launch fully operational Royal Family Kids Camps this summer. That vision included overnight lodging facilities, a large dining hall with commercial kitchen, mobile therapy horse ministries, gymnasium with climbing walls, basketball, volley ball, and other indoor and outdoor courts, a large indoor swimming pool, and more.
WELL… I’M HAPPY TO INFORM YOU THAT, WITH YOUR HELP, WE GOT IT DONE!
It was a triumph, to say the least, and now each day throughout this summer and forward a network of counselors will use your sponsored therapy animals and other WPR resources—all at no cost to them or the kids—to especially mentor abused, abandoned, trafficked and neglected children in direct fulfillment of Matthew 25: 31-40 and James 1:27, which not only defines “pure religion and undefiled before God” as ministering to orphans and widows but also clarifies these as some of the very actions by which Jesus Christ Himself is going to determine who does or does not enter heaven in the final judgment!
When you look into the face of a child rescued from sex-trafficking or born into an abusive home and who is now a ward of the state, it’s impossible to know their pain. They’ve been violated, mocked, ridiculed, and worse. They no longer trust most adults. They are often unable to attend school and are unlikely to have friends. Even eating and speaking are difficult. They’re condemned to suffering because their caregivers fell short in their responsibilities. Some, I am heartbroken to report, will not survive.
But now we are able to stand in the gap and make a difference in these precious lives because of YOUR help! Nita and I want to personally say THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY MADE POSSIBLE BY PARTNERING WITH US! Please know your ongoing help is also desperately needed and will continue to assure these life-changing experiences happen by helping with costs of housing, food services, clothing, ministry books and materials, equipment and other expenses of these dear children.
WE INVITE YOU TO ATTEND THIS YEAR’S FREE PONY SPONSOR BANQUET & TOUR WPR!
By Sponsoring one or more WPR Ponies (those interested in knowing more about Sponsor a Pony can visit: https://www.skywatchtvstore.com/collections/sponsor-a-pony) you are partnering directly with WPR’s healing ministry. As part of this unique and devoted family, we want to honor you by inviting you to attend exclusive sponsor events:
FREE registration to our annual conference starting in 2019. Next year SkyWatch TV will be relocating our conference back to where it all began—the Radisson in Branson Missouri! Many of the world’s leading Bible experts have already agreed to address the crowds… and we have MAJOR SURPRISES to be revealed later this year that will make this event unlike anything else in the nation! As a WPR Pony Sponsor, your registration to this groundbreaking convention will be paid for you.
A FREE BANQUET this year on Thursday, September 13 during the first registration day for the co-sponsored HYBRID AGE CONFERENCE at The Mansion Theatre, Branson, Missouri (https://gensix.com/conference/). Our event at this theater in Branson was the largest attended Christian conference in 2017 according to the city of Branson, and it is set to sell-out again this year. As a “Sponsor a Pony” benefactor, you are invited to attend a special banquet on the grounds of WPR during this conference in which I and my wife Nita will give a report showing just how your donations were used during the year to help those children and adults that need it most. During this invitation-only dinner, there will also be a meet-and-greet with some of the top speakers as well as a special report illustrating just how much your contributions are making a real difference. If you are (or want to be) a Pony Sponsor, please use the RSVP form at the end of this letter to register for the September 13 banquet. More information will then be mailed to you about the exact time and location (30-mins from The Mansion Theater).
OF COURSE EVERY PONY SPONSOR receives a hoof-signed, frameable picture of your sponsor horse(s), and an autographed copy of Nita Horn’s memoir, No Fences: It Started with a Plastic Pony, which details the childhood vision that led to the 280-acre Whispering Ponies Ranch, as well as Tom Horn’s related biography The Boy from El Mirage.
While much has been accomplished at WPR, there is still more to do. We urgently need your ongoing help. We hope you can sponsor a pony annually… or give even more, but any gift amount will help provide these little ones a new smile and a new life.
You can sponsor a pony with one annual sum of $1,000 or for as little as $83 per month (but again, any amount is useful and appreciated and PLEASE see the special ‘Thank You’ gifts below) and help provide a life changing experience for a child who’s waiting now. That’s one life changed, entirely because of you. And we thank you in advance for helping transform the lives of hurting children and adults one therapy pony at a time.
