I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91:2
This is the scripture that gave birthed the name of this ministry. We pray the children have the revelation that God wants to be their refuge. He wants to take care of them, heal them and take what the devil meant for bad and use it for good.
…to visit and help and care for the orphans… James 1:27 amp
This is our mission. It is a simple command God gave to us. We ignore this command. We come up with excuses to not follow this command. We skim over this passage along with the hundreds of others that command us to take care of the fatherless, the orphan. It is God’s burden. I pray God birth’s in you this day his burden for the orphan.
The orphanage in Mbale has been given 6 acres of land as a donation by a villager in that town. The goal of Bishop Wayabire is to build 25 buildings. These buildings would house the children with beds, have their school with their classrooms and medical facilities. A church in Indiana paid for a well there that gives clean water to 5000 people. The money we raised by your amazing donations has finished the 1st 4 buildings! Only 21 to go.
Welcome to the Refuge Ministries first ever post on our new blog! We are so excited to have this up and running so that we can share the wonderful things God is doing through this ministry. For the past five years, God have opened so many doors to allow us to minister to the children of the Juvenile Justice Facility here in Thibodaux. This facility is home to children who have been removed from their home due to abuse or neglect. Since 2008, we have taught weekly bible studies, been able to throw many “fun days,” bring the children to church, put a bible in their hands (sometimes for the first time), and love them unconditionally. Through the support of so many, these children have been able to experience the true love of God.
Please follow us by subscribing to this blog. We will use this blog to keep you up to date with the events that are occuring within this ministry. God is taking us to new places and we want you to join us!
Have a very Merry Christmas!!!
