"I enjoyed meeting and re-uniting with other Christians from CFC and also the young people working there.
"It was a weekend of blessing with fellow Christians and good teaching. The students there are impressive and I enjoyed talking with them."
"The fellowship and lessons were a blessing"
"Had a wonderful time at MMR as always. Everyone there is great. Always a joy to see old friends and meet new ones. A much needed time to reload."
"Thank you to all the staff for providing us comfort and warmth when the electricity was out."
"I was so impressed with how everything was taken care of when the electric went out"
"The staff never missed a beat and we kept going like nothing happened!"
Our thanks to Cowboys For Christ Executive Director Dave Harvey for inspiring us. We will never forget that mental picture of Jesus riding that white horse!

"Message From The Mount"
What a good looking group!
Congratulations to new Chaplains Carol Steffler and Steve Richmond!
Horse people are awesome! We enjoyed the ground tie session, the chapels and the fellowship
Our favorite part was the CFC President (Dave Harvey) speaking on Saturday afternoon.
My favorite part of this weekend is Ben's message (on the Longhorn Steer) about finding joy in suffering, which led into Matt's lesson on counseling others."
The best part of my weekend at MMR was the fellowship with great people and a chance to work with some good horses.
My personal favorites are a tie between the trail ride and the drill team. The trail ride was just a peaceful morning ambiance that I've needed after these past few weeks. The drill team was a lot of fun and demonstrated team work.
I can't choose.
I enjoyed the message on the Longhorn Steer. Also the drill team shared how important it is to work together for Christ. Such good messages!
I enjoyed my retreating "vacation" with like minded people. Always enjoy my time at Miracle Mountain! Mostly liked Matt's message on self counseling and how to help others find themselves in the Lord.
My favorite part is the students. They are so fun to listen to. It is encouraging to know there is a younger generation that loves the Lord.
My favorites: 1. Dave's teaching 2. Matt's teaching 3. ground work at the barn and the drill team 4. Being together with Christian brothers and sisters
My favorite thing was the ground work competition. It was really fun and interesting. I also loved Fancy,the horse I worked with.
The joy in Dave when he shares the Message!
Hard to say what my favorite part is because it is all great. If I had to choose it would be the trail ride.
