We want to thank all of you who supported Zumba Love last Sunday night. Everyone had an amazing time. Our goal was to raise $4000 so that we could pour the cement floors for the 5th building.  We raised $3000!!!! At the end of the night, an anonymous donor gave $1000 which allowed us to reach our goal!!!

We want to thank you again for doing your part to build a home for these children.

We had visiting Rotarians from Australia join in on the fun!

Zumba Love: Let’s Pour Some Cement!!!

- No Comments -

March 16th will be our 4th Annual Zumba Love.  Mrs. Emily Rini from 409 Studio in Thibodaux will teach an hour and a half Zumba class to African music.  During the event, you will get the opportunity to see pictures of the children you are helping that were taken on our last trip to Uganda.

The event will be held in Nicholls State University Ballroom.  Doors will open at 6:00 pm.  Registration fee is $25 which will include an “I Will Go” t-shirt.  Bring the little ones too!  There will be a special class for them where they will learn Zumba and do arts and crafts with the students from NEAT!

Our goal for Zumba is to raise $4000 to pour cement in the 5th building at the orphanage.  In the classrooms that the children currently go to school in, they sit on dirt floors. Our goal is for every building at Hope Refuge School to have cement floors so that these children can go to school in a cleaner environment.  If you can not attend Zumba Love, you may still make a donation through our website by clicking here.  If each person who follows us on Facebook would give $10, we would reach our goal and we can pour that cement!!!

You can also become a monthly sponsor by clicking on the same link above.

Welcome!!!

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
