Hi, my name is Travis Snider, and I’m so thankful that you are considering helping Javan, Lynelle and Abby. They were working on the Allison Ranch ministering to missionaries as they would come to the ranch for a week of rest and restoration. Javan was also working with the caretakers to keep this wilderness ranch operating. Their lives were uprooted by the Elkhorn Fire, which burned over 25,000 acres and decimated the ranch in a matter of minutes. As you can imagine it was a horrific experience for the family as they escaped from the inferno by jet boat on the Salmon River. They lost all of the possessions they had brought into the ranch including irreplaceable heirlooms. Javan is now out of work and the family is back home in Washington state.
Having retired from the Washington State Patrol and seeking to serve God they had found a place at the Allison Ranch where they could bless others.
Please consider helping the James Family as they get back on their feet financially with their loss and seek what God might have in store for their future.
