WyoCC Fatherhood Retreat 2020

 "To be a good father you need to be a good son"

Meet the boys:  William Heili, Lee Noel, Daniel Weyrich, Anthony Richter, Nathan Weyrich, me, and Seth Hostetler

Jason and Boni Kuhbacher are the Wyoming Catholic Cowboys who hosted our retreat.  They live their Catholic faith.  This ranch is a new endeavor for them.  After years of planning and saving they were able to move to their new ranch just across the Montana line.  They'll always be Wyomingites at heart though.  Their friendship is near and dear to me.  May God continue to bless them and their family, especially with rain.

Special thanks to Boni and Jason for hosting our retreat.  Cowboy life keeps you in touch with reality.  The truest reality we have as Christians is that we are God's beloved sons and daughters.  If you got that straight, the sky's the limit.  On to the next one...
