It’s the Independence Day picnic at Hidden Creek Ranch! Everyone from Save Our Streets Ministries gathers to enjoy a sunny day of celebration—and surprise.
When several children bring an injured baby bird to the ranch owner, Patricia, she promises to try to nurse it back to health.
Little do any of them realize that doing so will reveal God’s life-changing love for his creatures. As the nestling strengthens, his feathers grow in, and some unexpected visitors arrive, a journey of healing unfolds that parallels the story of the Good Samaritan—and the work of SOS Ministries to rescue, restore, and release the hurting.
