WOW! Another year has come and gone and we are welcoming this new year with great intention. 2018 started with the purchase of Wild Arrow Ranch in February. We quickly began renovations and preparations for our family to move onto the Ranch and even had a fun open house where our friends and family got in on some demolition. We officially started ranch life March 1, 2018 and we haven’t looked back.
In late fall we opened two Glamping Cabins for reservations. One has a queen bed and the other has four twin beds….perfect for a family or a few friends to spend a lovely night or two on the Ranch. Each reservation made by the public allows us to offer these cabins to the First Responder community at a great discounted rate.
In December, we completely demolished one of the larger bunkhouses down to the foundation. We are currently working on rebuilding the structure into a warm and welcoming two bedroom, one bath cabin complete with a lovely porch to sit and enjoy our beautiful hill country sunsets on. This new cabin should be open for reservations by Spring 2019.
Beyond the Bed & Breakfast, we are planning some fun weekends on the Ranch for First Responders to include music events, pool parties, river fun and so much more. Wild Arrow Ranch hosts monthly Music on the Ranch events open to everyone. This is a great way to relax and enjoy listening to great area bands.
Wellsprings is also now home to Firstline. This is the heart of why we started Wellsprings. Firstline is a faith-based stress and trauma healing journey is designed to address the spiritual and moral toll that critical incidents take on those within the law enforcement, firefighter and EMS communities. Together, we can see families heal, divorce rates drop, substance abuse decrease and suicide numbers reduced. The Firstline course, led by First Responders, will run as two semesters each year - spring and fall. During the semesters we will provide a meal for the First Responder and their families, childcare, and small group style community. We are thrilled to offer this great new resource to help the First Responder community.
First Responders, we invite you to come see us on the Ranch. We can’t wait serve you and your families. We will be releasing details on the upcoming Firstline course and when you can register to join.
All of our friends, family and followers - thank you for your donations, encouragement, support and help in 2018. We could not carry out this mission without your prayers and support. With so much on the horizon, we covet that support more than ever. Each Firstline course comes with a cost. Each cabin renovation comes with a cost. If you would like to make a donation please do so today. All donations are tax-deductible and will 100% go towards serving the First Responder community at Wellsprings.

So here’s to 2018 and all the change it brought our way. And here’s to 2019 and the amazing things we are reaching toward to serve those who serve.
