  1. I am so proud of you Ry!! You are going to have sooo much fun! I know that being away from home can be hard sometimes… but just remember I love you and I’m sending hugs and prayers with you. This will be an amazing trip for you. You can always pray, God also has your back ALWAYS! I love you and can’t wait to hear all about the fun things you will get to do!! โค
    Love, Mom

  2. Day 2! Did you get to meet the horses yet? What did you think? Here is a secret about horses… they are great listeners! I think that’s why they have big ears, they have big hearts too. I hope you are making some special friendships and are having fun. Remember:
    You are BRAVER than you believe,
    STRONGER than you seem,
    SMARTER than you think,
    and LOVED more than you’ll ever know!!!
    Love, Mom

    1. Didnโ€™t meet the horses… didnโ€™t want to… BUT I got to eat a waffle for the first time๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

  3. Hi Rylan! My name is Danielle, and I am your prayer partner. How was your first full day? Did you get to meet your horse today?

    This week you are going to experience so many new challenges. I can’t wait to hear how God uses you on this trip.

    “It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.” Psalm 18:32
    Remember this verse when the days get tough and you don’t want to continue, God will give you the strength to continue even when you don’t think you can. You can do this!

    Praying for you!
    Danielle

  4. Hello Rylan, I’m Michelle. I’m Elijah’s adopted aunt. How did you like the rock climbing? I hear you will be doing a lot of fun things this week. I’m pretty jealous of the fun you’re going to have. Hopefully some new friendships will come from this trip. There’s a lot of things planned for you this week. Try to get some good sleep. Have a great night Rylan.

  5. Hey Rylan,

    My name is Michelle Woods. I met you yesterday at send off. (I’m the one that took your temperature). I am excited for you to fully embrace this experience. There are going to be times that you might struggle. That’s normal. You are in a whole new environment, with all new people . That can be scary at times. Just remember that you were chosen by God for this trip. HE is with you every step of the way. TRUST HIM! When you start to worry or get anxious, pray. HE will comfort you.

    Did you get to meet your horse today? What is your horses name? Horses are amazing beings. They fascinate me. I hope you enjoy connecting with your horse.

    Here is a verse I often turn to
    “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with Thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

    Sleep well tonight.

  11. Hi Ry!! I loved seeing you with the horses today. How was river tubing? Did you stay warm? It got a little cooler today. Sounds like you are with a great group of boys, with tons of fun things to do. I am so proud of you, miss you, and love you sooo much! I hope you are having fun and trying new things. Some of the best experiences are just outside our comfort zone. Can’t wait to hear from you! Get some rest. I love you!!
    Love,
    Mom

    1. You should come sometime, so you can meet my friends and Alfredo!!! I think you would like Alfredo, theyโ€™re the calmest! I think river tubing was cancelled… but I got to throw a hatchet!!! And met two horses named Venus and Molly. How is Bear doing though, he must be pretty worried… and miss you too! Sorry if this was pretty long…

      1. Horses are amazing animals. โค ๐ŸŽ Alfredo sounds awesome!! We will have to camp there and visit him again sometime. Did you try riding yet? I’ve heard hatchet throwing takes some skills, I bet you were great at it! I told Bear ๐Ÿถ and Kiki ๐Ÿฑ that you will be home soon, with lots of stories to tell. I will be watching facebook live tomorrow, and am sooo excited to see all the awesome things you are doing. I know that you are stepping out of your comfort zone, challenging yourself to try new things… and I’m so proud of you Ry!! Get some good sleep!! I love you!!!!

        1. Thanks! I got to ride Alfredo!!! It was more fun than I expected… Hopefully Bear is exited to see me! ๐Ÿถ

  12. Hi again

    I love the masks that you all are doing. Such an amazing learning experience. Hope you have a great last night at Cranhill.

  14. I saw you riding Alfredo today! Awesome job!! I’m glad it was fun. You pushed yourself and I am sooo proud of you!! Bear will be super excited to see you when you get home. Are you excited for the hike? What an amazing experience you will have!!! Just keep going, one foot in front of the other.

    Love,
    Mom

    1. Yeah, thatโ€™s Alfredo! My favorite horsie ๐Ÿด. And Iโ€™m actually kinda nervous about the hike… but I think it will do pretty good for me! I think the others will keep going longer than I can without getting very tired. Hopefully I can get some pictures of Alfredo though!

  15. You are going to do great… look how far you have come this week!! It’s okay to be nervous about something new. Being brave is knowing you are nervous, but doing it anyway. And you have shown that a lot!! I am sooo proud of you!!! Get some rest tonight, and tell God about your fears. He will guide and help you. I’m sending prayers and hugs also! Have a great time, keep stepping one for in front of the other, encourage your friends, and take moments to notice the beauty in nature. It will be a great experience!!! I know YOU GOT THIS!!! I love you!!!!!!
    Love,
    Mom

  17. Good morning!
    Something to get you thinking…..

    Small steps in the right direction are better then big steps in the wrong direction. I was praying for you and our families and the awesome staff you are with, directly after I saw this. God speaks to us in many ways.

  18. Hi Rylan,
    This is Quinntin’s Mom.
    So fun reading everyones blogs. I sounds like you are having a great time and trying new things everyday. That is so awesome!! I hope you have as much fun on the river hiking as you did with the horses, rock wall climbing, trying a waffle for the first time, and all the other activities!! We pray for you guys everyday and will continue. I hope that you are buliding connections with God and the guys!! And of course making new life long friendships!! Hope you have another great day today!! God Bless!!!!

  19. How was Day One of your hike? I saw the video when you guys first took off down the trail this morning, and you were leading the way!! So proud of you, I know you can do this!! Did you make any cool stops on your path so far? I bet it’s beautiful there. How are you and your friends encouraging each other? Get lots of rest tonight. You might even get to hear crickets or a frog… I like that sound, it’s like nature’s lullaby. ๐Ÿ˜ด I can’t wait to hear more about your adventure!! Just keep going, one foot in front of the other. Sooo proud of you!!! I love you!!!
    Love,
