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.
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:
