Richard and I have safely arrived in Brazil and from day one the challenges began. First we had a power cut and therefore also no water.

Horses for Orphans transforming lives of children through natural horsemanship

For ranchers and producers who work with horses, the idea of "speak- ing a horse's language" and teaching it to children to develop horsemanship skills can sound a bit too close to the "Horse Whisperer" for comfort.

The last few months have been bittersweet. Since autumn last year, we have been perplexed often, faced opposition, been confronted with situations that on human terms seemed hopeless, felt helpless regularly and at times we were challenged beyond what we thought we could bear, yet God was with us always and met us daily. His love, power and grace truly are enough!
