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, 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

In December an adorable white frame church in 
Milano was donated. 

GOAL:  $22,000 to move to MSR.
16 Stall Horse Barn
16 Stall Horse Barn Interior
100' X 100' Covered Arena
Why Project Magnify?

Horse Barn will:
  • magnify the warmth and protection for our horses and volunteers all year round!

Covered Arena will:
  • magnify the number of camps we can host in one season by providing shade that will bring temp down 20 degrees in July and August
  • magnify encouragement for families through weekend arena events 
  • magnify our outreach to the horse community through arena events

Please pray for remarkable response during our 2nd Telethon, February 13
