From the Directors Desk

First Refuge Supporters, Volunteers and Friends,,
Thank you so much for the support you have given me and Barbie in my first year with this awesome ministry. In one year, First Refuge and you have blessed both my life and my family's life in ways that you would not believe.

Soon we will be having the 2nd Annual First Refuge Gala and it is going to be awesome! Please let Jodi know if you are attending (even if you haven't bought your ticket yet) and if you are willing to volunteer with registration or decorating on October 13.

Remember that North Texas Giving Day is September 22nd! We will be participating with other Denton non-profits at the annual event on the Denton Square that evening so come by and say hi.  We'll send you a reminder in a couple weeks. 

Thank you so much for everything you do and everything you are to me and my family.

For His glory,
Paul Juarez
Executive Director
First Refuge Ministries
