About This Site
My name is Eric Elder, and here's a picture of me, my wife
and our kids.
I designed a website a few years ago called The
Ranch, and it's got lots of great stuff for adults to encourage them
in their faith.
But I wanted to
create something just for kids - just for YOU!!
So in the summer of 2000, I had a chance to spend a week with
about 200 kids at Vacation Bible School here in Streator. I taught them
a little about what a missionary is and what a missionary does.
They wanted to help me reach out to other kids all over
the world, so we worked together to create the KidsRanch.
The kids helped me write the jokes and stories that you see on this
site. They also generously donated their missions money to our
ministry to help fund the creation of this site. They even sang a song just for you, which you can
listen to on the music page.
I want to thank each of them for helping me create this
site. To maintain their privacy, I've not included their names or pictures here, but they know
who they are! (see our privacy
Thanks for coming!
