From Dan’s Desk – Video Blog 12/4/14


We are in the thick of our Christmas play season, and I am too much on the run to sit still and type much. Watch the video below to see what the boys are up to!

  • Your generosity enabled us to order 2 new washing machines (ordered on Mexican Black Friday) and we are still waiting for them to arrive.
  • Our new van (the 2000) is finally out of the shop after several weeks of hunting for the mysterious electrical problem. We are glad “she” is back.
  • In 2 weeks the boys leave for home, many to pretty bad situations. Much prayer is needed.
  • I was asked to take 2 of our ex-Rancho kids, Irvin and Milton, to doctor’s appointments this week. I was happy to be with them – we all miss them very much and have been wondering how they are getting along. They seem to be doing well; both are attending school and have gotten involved in a church. Milton is part of the music ministry.

And we thank you, Margie Nathanson, and our friends at Narberth and and Pastor Dave and LWF for their Christmas Shopping Catalogs that feature Rancho Del Rey.

  1. Thanks for your first ever video blog. I enjoyed seeing you, Danny, and your dad Hank as well as the inside of the dining hall and that area of El Rancho del Rey. Glad to hear that you were able to get new washers. The Lord does supply all of our needs, just as He promises to.

    I’ll be praying that the play will touch many lives and that the Holy Spirit will take the story of Jesus’ birth and God’s wonderful love to many in your community–and even beyond. I know that it will impact all of you at El Rancho as well.

    I’ll pray for all returning home for the holidays to be safe and to return on time. God’s blessings to you with my love, Margie

  2. Hola Danny! What a joy to walk the campus with you again! Please have more of these “live” blogs!
    God bless you all at this Christmas season. Give my love to Hank.
