And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 

I have overdosed 9 times in the last year. I was in a shelter that is like a second home to me ... all the staff know me and everything. I decided to pray to ask God to help me cause I was not going to make it otherwise ... I never pray. I knew I was going to die if I did not get help. Not even two hours later the director of the shelter called me into his office and told me about a place that could help me in Calgary. I called and was able to get into the emergency bed. I have never been so relieved my whole life.
She was relating this story to the girls in class. The thing she did not know is that one of our staff had called the shelter she was talking about just 2 weeks before this and told them about our program. Then she sent them NSM info and how to contact us. God obviously orchestrated this whole thing! It was like a light came on when she realized that this was definitely an answer to her prayer!
Can you believe that our second house is now open?!?! What a thrill it was to have a ribbon cutting ceremony for Robins Place on August 1st! After a couple of months searching for the next home, God led us to the right one. All the furniture was generously donated by a family and a local business. We will be moving the first participants into the new house this week. Thank you for your prayers and donations ... they will help many vulnerable women throughout the years to come.
September 30th is approaching quickly now as we prepare for the Ride for Refuge! We have 15 amazing team captains putting teams together and the competition is heating up between some of us as we try to outdo each other. This year we have sensed the urgency more than ever to get people involved as the second house is now open. More women will be helped, lives will be changed and it is very exciting for us all.
