On the seventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me, seven swans-a-swimming.

We didn’t have seven swans on campus (even though we have cows, chickens, donkeys, dogs, goats, and…) or we would have posted a picture of them. According to our source, “It would take someone quite familiar with the Bible to identify this gift. Hidden in the code are the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: prophecy, ministry, teaching, exhortation, giving, leading, and compassion. As swans are one of the most beautiful and graceful creatures on earth, they would seem to be a perfect symbol for the spiritual gifts.” 1 Corinthians 12

At Joy Ranch, we have the privilege of helping these young people discover their spiritual gifts and watch them grow. Won’t you help them, too? Pray for them and you can support them financially with a donation.
