Brick Program

- Comments Off on Brick Program -

We started a new project for when we present to churches and organizations. For a donation of $100 given to the building fund for the orphanage, a person will get a brick as a symbol of what they are helping to build. Last night was our first time doing this and we sold 7 bricks!!! Only 113 more bricks to sell and we can build one building!!!!

Hi everyone, a group of our team is currently in Uganda, Africa helping the Bishop, his family, and the children at the orphanage. They are having a great time being able to help all of the children. You can just see the joy on the children’s faces from the pictures they are sending to us that have stayed here. The children are so happy to have our team there helping and ministering to them. These children are full of joy, they may not have very many material things but they do have the joy of the Lord. The church services there last 8 or more hours and you can just feel the presence of the Lord throughout the entire service. Please Pray for our team that the Lord would guide them in their every decision there while helping these children. Pray for the children as well, that the Lord would bless them & continue to show them His love in a time in there lives when they have no parents because of death, or illness, or reasons unknown. You can “like” us on Facebook to see all of the updated pictures from the trip and of course continue to follow the blog as we will post more pictures and updates.

Refuge Garage Sale

- Comments Off on Refuge Garage Sale -

One of our board members, Casey Roussel and his wife Toni put on a huge 1 acre garage sale and donated the profits to Refuge. This was an amazing event that Toni planned perfectly. We were able to raise over $3,200.00 in all to help foster children in our area and the orphans in Uganda. We are definitely planning to have another garage sale sometime in the fall, hopefully November, so if you have donations, please let us know and we’ll get them from you. A-Cajun Mini Storage next to House of Prayer in Thibodaux has graciously let us use a storage unit to store our donations in until the garage sale. Here are some pictures of the garage sale for you to view:

A 3.1 Mile Roll through Peltier Park and Thibodaux Neighborhoods
(Leaving from and finishing at the Peliter Park in Thibodaux)
Hello Running Friends:
House of Prayer Kid’s ministry ages ranging from 3 years to 6th grade, are proud to present the 1st Annual Thibodaux “Run for Kids” 5k walk/run.  This is a first time EVER 5k race being put on by our children’s ministry. We can’t begin to tell you how excited we are about doing this.
Of course like any new event, it takes resources, both human and financial, to organize and put on an event such as this one.  We are looking for your support. We are already in the works to have free entertainment, music, and children’s activities. However, there are a few other resources needed to make this race a success… We are hoping to provide free giveaways, awards, T-shirts, food, and etc. Your help is needed to make this fundraiser a success. Please view the sponsor list below to see how you can help.
Our Solid Rock children’s ministry will be giving 100% of the proceeds to CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) located in Lafourche Parish. This organization trains and supports local volunteers to act as court appointed advocates. These advocates are the voice for abused and neglected children in court cases. With your help, we are hoping to provide more resources to CASA in order to ensure a more safe and loving environment for our children with no home or family support. 
Not only are we helping a local organization, but we are also teaching our children the value of giving to those less fortunate. Please take this great opportunity to join us and be part of an event in support of CASA. If you wish to discuss how you can participate in ways other than those noted here, please contact one of the persons named below.  Please say, “Yes” and support us.  Thank you.

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!!!

The Refuge Team
