As I lay inn my bed, mosquito netting hangs from the ceiling surrounding every side of me. God whispers, this is how my love for you and protection for you is. My eyes water as I feel His love for me wrap around me. While I can see through this fine mesh, my vision is impaired slightly. God whispers again, because I want you to see this world differently. I want you to see people through my eyes. The thin mesh separates me from the outside. God has set His people apart. To not be conformed to this world. To be the light in this darkness, to be His Hands and feet. As I look up, a metal ring holds the netting from the ceiling. God reminds me of a wedding band. A covenant of two people who love each other and who become one. I am reminded of the covenant I have made. When I truly gave my life to Jesus, I became His bride. He loved me so much He laid His life down for me and now I daily give Him my life in return.-Mandy
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
