Thanks to all who attended and supported the Joy for Ryan Concert!
The Joy for Ryan concert was a huge success and we thank all of you for your support. We realize that many of you were still away at college and won’t be home until this week and many others had travel or other plans but thank you all for your prayer support! The gospel was preached and lives were touched by stories of joy and how the Lord has used Ryan to change peoples lives. May God bless all of you who have come to this web site and supported Ryan by prayer, by your gifts, by your time and talents and any other way that you may have helped. Have a great CHRISTmas and New Year!

The Love for Ryan Concert February 4th was a great success. Thank You!
We want to thank everyone who made the Love for Ryan Concert a great success. People’s lives were truly touched by the Word of God as spoken by our guest speakers and as sung by our featured musicians. We were all greatly blessed to be there.
Shawn McDonald headlined and Paul Johnson and the Sound of Sunsets played opening sets that brought great reactions from the crowd. Jesse VanZee and Washington Redskins Running Back Roy Helu, Jr. gave incredible testimonies of how The Lord has worked in their lives. We want to thank each and every participant and attendee of the show. It was an evening that will stay with us for a long time.
Please go to the Photos Tab to see more pictures of this incredible evening. Also, pray for the many people who have had their lives changed by coming to know Jesus personally or coming to know Him closer through the ministry of this evening.
Buy Sees Holiday Chocolates and Candies and Support Ryan!
Ryan’s Home church, Creekside Church in Alamo, has put together a great program for purchasing holiday chocolates and candies from Sees that will benefit Ryan. This allows anyone who would like to either sell Sees to their friends or to buy it for themselves to help Ryan. Ryan’s Trust will receive 20% of all funds received. This is time sensitive because the cutoff date for orders to Sees is December 7th and you will need to pay in advance of receiving your order. Orders from the local area will be delivered to Creekside Church. If you are out of the area, they can arrange for your order to be mailed to you but, you must order soon in order to allow for mailing time. If you would like to participate, please e-mail Mollie Lillis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
