Here’s what some are saying about Refuge 139:

“The children and teen’s programs at past conferences have been a highlight in the lives of our MKs as they can tend to live in isolation and not have freedom to be themselves. . . ” – L.M.
“It would be very difficult to hold a conference without having the child and youth program.” – L.H.
“I have smiled and laughed more these two weeks than in the past month. . . I loved doing lots of really fun crafts and activities in class, exploring nature, and getting to know my awesome God better.” – A.H.
