WOW! It happened! Wings of Refuge is now operating in the new home God provided! Can you believe it?!? A year ago this was all a far away dream! The last couple weeks have been an absolute whirlwind! We are tying up loose ends and new systems are beginning to take place. Thank you so much for all who helped make this possible from demo, to painting, to finish work, and adopting spaces to make them beautiful, to praying, giving, planning, helping fundraise and advocating for Wings - as one volunteer stated at the soft opening - “This is how The Body of Christ works.”
I am so proud of our staff - on Day One in the new home they began programming amongst the boxes and chaos. Day Two presented a newer participant who came downstairs during morning devotions, asked how to know Jesus, and decided to give her life to the Lord! Another participant who has been at Wings for some time had the courage to bravely share a God-given dream in her heart with leadership in the new home. So much good is already happening.
We plan to take a little time to catch our breath and settle into the new home! However, we wanted to let you know that there are exciting things yet to come and a need for sustainability and to keep a light on for her! Please continue in prayer for the coming weeks that we can settle in quickly and find new systems and structures in the home and community.
Blessings upon blessings to you all! Thank you for being a part of ending exploitation and making restoration possible- we are better together!
