From the Directors Desk

First Refuge Supporters,

If you haven’t already, sign up for the Mustache Dash! Just the coupons in the swag bag, alone will be worth the cost. I will declare that our swag bag will be the best swag bag in Denton! That’s no April Fools joke.
I would like to take a moment to thank all the volunteers that joined us at the Branch Pantry at Heritage Oaks. I have receive several compliments about you and how you served so faithfully and graciously.
The last thing I would like to talk about is our medical department. We have been praying and waiting on God to bring us more medical practitioners. We are no longer waiting! In the last month we have been blessed by God to have several doctors, nurses, and one nurse practitioner start volunteering with us. I truly believe that this is only the beginning of God using First Refuge to do mighty things to serve the people of Denton.

For His glory,
Paul Juarez
Executive Director
First Refuge Ministries

Our Food Pantry is Branching Out

This month we opened a branch pantry at Heritage Oaks Apartments. Residents of that complex now have easier access to our food pantry twice a month. 

New (To Us) Truck

We are thankful for the donation of a truck that we can use for a variety of things for the ministry.
