This stump and I have gone rounds! Over the past week or so Mark (the guy in the yellow shirt) and I have each spent numerous hours, chainsawing, digging, hacking, sawzalling, shoveling, beating, ramming (with the skid steer!) and sweating (does anyone have any spare dynamite on hand?)…

As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.…

The Reclaim Story

Todd Ickes Reclaim 4 Comments

I love stories…I love to tell them and I love to hear them (especially if a campfire is involved)!  So here’s to the beginning of the Reclaim Ministries story and the work God is doing and will do!
