Letter to the Editor: ‘Thank you and God bless’

(Martha Needham/The Cullman Tribune)

On behalf of Double CK Bucking Bulls and Second Chance Rodeo Ministry we would like to take a few minutes to say thank you to our sponsors from this year and give you a brief glimpse into the year and what your sponsorships made possible. I couldn’t possibly put everything in a video for you to see but I’ll just say it’s been amazing what God has done in that arena and share with you a little bit through this video. First, we would like to thank all of our sponsors personally: Jacks Western Wear and Outdoors, Chambers Feed and Garden Supply, Stevens Hardware, Netherton Farms and Cullman Savings Bank. This year wouldn’t have been possible without you all and we just want to say thank you and God bless.

We would also like to say thanks to all the kids, the parents, the volunteers, EMS, Big Country 105.7 and No Fences Cowboy Church for all you done this year to help as well. Last but definitely not least we would like to thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for new life through him and for a vision he put inside of us to do his work in the arena, and in life. Through the vision God has put on our hearts it has brought joy and happiness to us and God has begun to pour his love into the youth lives in that arena. Being a part of their walk with the lord and watching their dreams of becoming a bull rider come to life has been worth every effort and sacrifice made.

Most will never understand the love, passion, and desire when it comes to riding bulls or the hard work, commitment and discipline that comes with it to be successful. For the ones who do, they live it, breathe it, dream it, it’s LIFE. Rodeo is a rough sport but can also be a very rewarding sport. So, through this ministry we are able to provide a place for those youth not interested in other sports another option through bull riding, while encouraging their faith in God, life skills, and working on their riding abilities. We have prepared a short video clip for you and we hope you enjoy it, and from all of us at Double CK Bucking Bulls and Second Chance Rodeo Ministry we would like to say thanks again to you all and we hope everyone has had a Merry Christmas and a happy new year, God bless!
