The Vision

From their earliest childhood memories, Andy and Rita Kay Isaacs wanted to live
in the country, raise animals and live a country way of life. Little did they know their childhood dreams would lead them into a full-time faith-based restoration ministry.

Andy and Rita Kay were living in a suburb of Dallas, Texas raising a family, when the vision began growing in their hearts and minds. Few understood their longings and desires, but God's purpose for their lives was being revealed one miracle after another. Praying and seeking God's will, the dream of a ranch ministry became alive in their spirits. Feeling the call of God on their lives to be instruments of hope, love and encouragement, they were led specifically to a beautiful place in Milano, Texas.

When they purchased the current 166 acre ranch, there was a simple pole barn and working pens - precious little for a viable camp ministry. One day at a time with the love and support of God's people, Morning Star Ranch has become a reality.

        Our Goal is to provide:

  •  An affordable facility in a secluded, peaceful ranch environment for individuals, families, and organizations

  • Leadership training by applying Bible-based principals through spiritual and recreational activities.

  • An outreach to youth whose families cannot afford the expense of sending them to camp

  • A special place for Pastors and Missionaries who need a time of rest and restoration

In September 2019, a faithful volunteer heard about a lady in Hutto named Judy that was giving away a covered arena. She took Andy to meet Judy. When Judy heard about our teen program she gave us the following items that are to be dismantled and reconstructed at MSR.

    •100 x 200 ft. arena, 100 feet is covered 
       and it is enclosed on two sides  
    •16 stall horse barn
    •3 portable storage buildings
    •2 large out buildings

Update:  All of the above has been moved to MSR.  We are still needing volunteers to help reconstruct/remodel the buildings.

 Dear Friends,

 This last year was amazing!  It was great to be back in full swing!  God blessed MSR in so many   ways!  We watched as the covered arena went up the first week of camp and what a difference it   made on the horses, campers and parents that come for the arena competitions.  We had great   camps with the help of our amazing ROCK-STAR teens and the privilege of witnessing many teens   choosing Christ and asking to be baptized.

 Thanks to our amazing supporters we were able to reward our teens who make it all possible, our   ROCK-STARS!  We took them to the ARK ENCOUNTER and CREATION MUSEUM in Kentucky.

 Thanks to the love of Dalace Duvall and his team we made $15,575.19 on the Diamond Wishes   Children's Charity Auction in October!

We are planning four more great ETS weekends this year.
March 4 - 6
April 22 - 24
September 16 - 18
Trail Ride Competitions and Live Auction will be held:  November 4 - 6

If you have never been to one of our live auctions hosted by 
Diamond Wishes Children's Charity, you won't want to miss it.  
Not only are there great items up for bid but we have a great time.  
All proceeds from the auction go directly to Morning Star Ranch Ministries.  
This helps us to provide camps for financially challenged teens.​
​  Go to the Equine Trail Sports website and sign up.  

 Many thanks to the volunteers who made calls and those who donated to our 2021 Telethon!   We were able to erect the covered arena and use it for camp this year.  There is not enough   paper to tell you all God has done for Morning Star Ranch Ministries, and we want to say   a TEXAS SIZE THANK YOU to all who have helped us through this trying time.

 With Love and Gratitude!!
 Andy, Rita Kay and Staff
