From the Directors Desk

First Refuge Supporters,

The holidays are over and now it is time to do what God wants us to do in 2017. We have new board members, new volunteers, and a new name at the dental clinic, but we have the same mission. “Our goal is to share the Gospel and offer lasting hope and healing through the love of Jesus Christ.”

We will be having a training for all volunteers on March 4th and if you haven’t already planned on being there, please make every effort to attend. I will be training on how to share the gospel and I will every year. Please pray and ask the Lord if He would use you to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We will be focusing more on this part of our ministry going forward. Thank you all for the prayers and support to myself and First Refuge.

For His glory,
Paul Juarez
Executive Director
First Refuge Ministries

God is continuing to grow our counseling ministry and medical clinic. In the last month, we've had multiple doctors and nurse practitioners agree to begin volunteering each month--it's nearly doubled the number of hours we can see patients! And, just this week we welcomed Laura Lanier, LPC Intern supervised by Christy Graham, LPC-S as one of our invaluable volunteer counselors!
