When I first came to the Refuge I had very little knowledge about God.  I would pray but my prayers were never answered the way I wanted them to.  I remember getting scared one night because God did answer my prayer.  It felt paranormal in my mind.  I did not know to trust Him or deny Him.  As I witness today God moving through me and people around me, my faith has strengthened.  I really believe that prayer works.  It may not happen overnight or the way I want God to respond but I am learning to trust him.  All good things happen in His timing and not my own.  Thank you Jesus!
