Last week, we graduated our first class of English students at The Refuge. Twenty women took part in a three month conversational English class led by two of our wonderful native-American speakers, Jessica and Darah.

In the future, we hope to expand our repertoire of English classes to include vocational courses as well. This month we will be finishing the tile floor in the remaining 2,000 square feet of the first floor of the building. When completed it will add 3 classrooms, a library, a café, a welcome room, an office, and a set of bathrooms to the already completed 1,000 square foot conference room where we have our English courses now.God has continued to bless us with the funds we need each month step by faithful step.

Thanks so much for partnering with us and praying for this special work amongst the Kurdish people.
