Ryan & Shannon Rankin

Sheridan, WY

God has passionately pursued us all of our lives so that we could know Him and be redeemed by Him. Every child deserves the same passionate and unfailing love… love that redeems and restores, that comes to you wherever you are. Adoption wasn’t our idea, it was God’s. Jesus has given so much to our family, both spiritually and physically, we are looking forward to sharing His many blessings with an orphan.

A Waiting Child

Orphan Haiti

After a lot of phone calls and tons of prayers, God made it clear to us that He wanted us to adopt a child in Haiti. We are waiting for our referral from the Haitian government and could receive a referral in 9-12 months. We are adopting one child, under the age of three. This process is long and expensive, but we completely trust God to provide endurance and finances for the road ahead!

Ms. Melana

Widow Sheridan, WY

Melana’s husband had suffered from medical issues but was improving when he suddenly took a turn for the worse and passed away. With the loss of her husband, caring for her daughter, working, the financial burden, and her own health issues Melana has not been able to keep up with the needs of her 100 year old home. We are so excited and honored that we get to know and care for her!

Our Both Hands Project

Project September 8, 2018
