Hunger

FB_IMG_1440692202445.jpgThere are several different types of hunger. There is the hunger of the body, the hunger of the soul, the hunger of emotions, and the hunger of intellect. When children grow up hungry they do not develop correctly. My mission is to bring awareness of these type of hungers and the problems they cause when children are neglected and are hungry. Children that are hungry as a child become deficient adults and have a hard time becoming successful members of society.

Day 37 of training

Childhood Hunger American Trek

The wagon isn’t done yet. The gentleman building it is having to work on it in between his other jobs. As mine was a rush order normally he wouldn’t have even started on it till the other jobs were done. However that being said it should be done by Monday. Then I’ll start training the horses with it. The tentative plan is, I’ll work the horses 5 days then give them

2 days off, then five more days then 4 days off. Then I’ll leave on my trek. The 4 days is so they will be totally rested when I start. So the start date has been put back by two weeks.

Rest days

Every 4 or 5th day you have to rest the horses for 2 to 3 days depending on how hard the road was. Today and tomorrow are rest days for the boys. But not for me. I’m still waiting for my travelling wagon to be finished. So I’m sorting out what I should take with me. But it’s hard as till I’m actually on the road I’ll not really know what I’ll need. So I’ll be doing a couple of camping trips lasting two to three days. This will help me understand what I’ll need.

Day 26 of training

A tough decision made.

 Jessie is doing well but I have decided that he is to high strung for the type of trip I am doing. As the leader of this Trek I have to decide if it’s in the horse’s best interest and health for him to be put under the type of stress that this Trek will provide. Unfortunately I believe this would be to much for Jessie. So I’m pulling him from the line up. I’ll be replacing him with Buck.
Here is some background on Buck. Buck was rescued as a four year old from a very bad situation. He was extremely under weight. The night of his rescue he collapsed and couldn’t get back up, he was to weak. The rescuers had to put him on an IV and turn him over to stop bedsores. After two days of around the clock care a web sling was found and he was hoisted to his feet. After three days of being in the sling he was able to stay up on his feet. However he was unable to get up when he laid down for another 4 days. During this time he had to be hoisted to his feet another 6 times. But after a week he was on the mend. I sponsored him at this time and decided to adopted him. Buck is now 9 years old and is completely healthy. And quite chunky he was only my second choice because he is only 14’3 hands tall. Which makes him a bit smaller then Renegade.

Day 15 of Training

IMG_20180620_083959239_HDRIt’s been two weeks now and a lot has happened. Renegade is get in better shape and so am I. He has been reminded of his past training and has learned to hobble and has started picket training well. Jessie has come far from the boy that didn’t know much. He has learned to be saddled, has been mounted and moved around a bit. He also has started being picketed and hobble training. He has also been ground driven and has done good at figure eights. And stopping and standing.

The wagon is still in the midst of being built but will start training with the training wagon this weekend.

Do not look away

https://www.nokidhungry.org

Isaiah 58:10 If you give some of your own food to [feed] those who are hungry and to satisfy [the needs of] those who are humble, then your light will rise in the dark, and your darkness will become as bright as the noonday sun.

Why not use our wealth to help someone that really needs it. God will often provide for people through us. Let’s all pray for more love and compassion for the needy.

Let’s think of different ways to bless the children of America. Let’s pray that God removes any stinginessthat’s lurking in our heart.

John 3:17-18 Now, suppose a person has enough to live on and notices another believer in need. How can God’s love be in that person if he doesn’t bother to help the other believer? Dear children, we must show love through actions that are sincere, not through empty words.

14. James 2:26  A body that doesn’t breathe is dead. In the same way faith that does nothing is dead.IMG_20180611_074858260

Childhood Hunger Awareness Trek

 

  • wp-1489240694140.jpg

Hi, I’m Angela, And this is my mission and my dream: Riding for Childhood Hunger Awareness. If you are interested in what Renegade, Cochise, Jessie and I are doing, please read on.
But what exactly are we doing, you’re no doubt wondering? I will be traveling alone with my horses and wagon. 8000+ miles, from the East coast to the West coast and back, on a continuous ride.
There are several different types of hunger. There is the hunger of the body, the hunger of the soul, the hunger of emotions, and the hunger of intellect. When children grow up hungry they do not develop correctly. My mission is to bring awareness of these type of hungers and the problems they cause when children are neglected and are hungry. Children that are hungry as a child become deficient adults and have a hard time becoming successful members of society.

I’ll be starting in July of 2018 and approximately ending in July 2020.

My mission is to bring awareness by stopping at Food Banks and talking to the media online and news papers, and if all goes well to the Television networks, local and national.

My Dream

I know some of you are wondering why. Why do this type of trip? Why the length? Well my desire to do this Trek was started when I was 11 and read about the Abernathy brothers. But even before that I was always looking and wondering what was over the next hill, beyond the next curve of the road. I was always exploring trails less traveled to find out where they went. I am a tractor trailer driver, a trucker. I’ve drove all 48 eight states and Canada. But all I’ve seen was the main roads, I’ve drove by national parks, through wilderness areas , by historical signs. Yet could never stop and actually see the places where history was made. I want to travel at a pace where I can take roads less traveled. Talk to people who I would never see if I was traveling at the modern pace in a car. I want to hear peoples stories of their lives and their ancestors. I want to inspire people to follow their dreams no matter how hard or crazy they seem. I want to bring awareness of Childhood Hunger in America and that one person can make a difference.

Thank you and hope to see you on the road.

Testing yourself

I’ve always thought—tests are a gift. And great tests are a great gift. To fail the test is a misfortune. But to refuse the test is to refuse the gift, and something worse, more irrevocable, than misfortune. “If you think it’s really wrong to take the test, that’s one thing. Maybe that’s the test. But if it’s only fear of failure—you have not the right to refuse.

I believe I’m being handed a great gift with my Childhood Hunger Awareness Trek. This will change me, change my Awareness of myself, of my life and the world around me. I wonder what I’ll be when I get back.Ca4aC8vUcAEZ4ZF
