“So they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified” Isaiah 61:3
Big Oak Ranch is a Christian home for children needing a chance. The
Ranch takes in children between the ages of six and eighteen who are
orphaned, abused, neglected, or homeless. Comfortable two-story
brick houses are home for up to eight children and a quality Christian
couple. Our houseparents provide the consistent love, discipline and
direction our children so desperately need and deserve.

ON THE COVER
Houston is 14 years old
and lives in the
Spradling Home
with his houseparents
Lester and Leslie Hales.
S
ummer is over, and it’s time for the back to school buzz! Our house is
no different than yours, except that we are sending 113 children back
to school. Can you imagine how many back-to-school clothes, shoes,
backpacks, etc. are needed? And what about school supplies!!! I think you
get the picture.
We are getting more children ready for school this fall than we ever have in
the history of the Ranch. We could not do this without your help. We thank
you so much for your belief in us, not only in giving our children a home but
also educating them for their future. I personally wasn’t the best student. It
wasn’t because I couldn’t do the work; I was just focused on other things. Our
children have spent a lifetime having their attention diverted by things that
they should not have to worry about. For some it was wondering where their
next meal would come from, where they were going to sleep that night, or
fearing that they would be hurt in the middle of the night. Because of you and
your love for them, these distractions are no longer a part of their mental or
emotional concerns.
We thank you so much for allowing our children to have the ability and chance
to focus on their education and improving their life. You have been faithful,
and we plan on doing the same.
Thank you for loving our children!
Your friend,
John Croyle
Executive Director
The Big 12 Club
Wills & Estates
Did you know it takes approximately $1,000/month to provide
the basic care that one of our children needs – including food,
clothing, shelter, education and insurance? We provide for our
children the same things that you do for your children with one
exception – we have to hire houseparents to take your place.
Your membership in the Big 12 Club covers the cost of raising
one of our children for one year. Would you like to be a member of the Big 12 Club? Each member pledges $12,000 over a
one year period (usually paid in increments of $1,000/month).
If you would like more information on the Big 12 Club, or have
any questions, please call (205) 467-6226.
Your will is one of the most important legal documents you
will ever sign. Yet, over 70% of American adults do not have
a will. Leaving your family without a will means that the
laws of your state will determine how your property is
distributed, without your input or desires. Is that what you
want? Your will is the primary way to determine how your
assets will be distributed after your death and offers you
a way to care for the people and charities who have
shared your values. Please contact the Miller Welborn at
(205) 467-6226, ext. 1213 if you have any questions, or would
like to add the children of Big Oak Ranch to your will.

Thanks SO much to Heath Patton and all of the volunteers
who spent so much time and energy making Wake the World
2012 SO much fun for all of our kids. They all enjoyed a
wonderful day on the water — everything from demos by some
of the “master” wakeboarders in the group to lessons on riding
the waves themselves and feeling what it’s like to learn a new
skill. Thanks also for feeding everyone a wonderful lunch and
dinner, and for being SO hospitable!
Thanks Wake the World - we are looking forward to next year!!
This summer we were blessed to attend two different STUDENT
LIFE camps. During the first week, our boys were able to attend
as Staffers and actually be a part of the staff of Student Life at
Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Our
second week was regular camp at Covenant College in Blue Ridge
Mountain, Georgia. A special thank you goes out to our Camp
Directors, Ryan Childress and Jared Brown, and the rest of the
staff of Student Life for providing us the chance to attend the
camps as well as following the call that God has placed on their
lives. It continues to make a lasting impact on our kids! We hope
you enjoy these pictures as we attempt to show you a glimpse of
what our children and staff were able to experience.

This we believe. We must be good stewards of God’s blessings by:
A. ensuring that your contributions are used to enrich the lives of our children--spiritually, mentally,
emotionally, and physically;
B. maximizing every gift to its fullest; and
C. conducting every area of business in an honorable way.
This plan will ensure that your support is used where you and God intended - to relieve the suffering of children.
