House of Refuge Mission back on the street again

 The House of Refuge re-opened on the parking lot of Edmonton Cash Register just six days after the building they were leasing at 10339A – 95 Street was destroyed by fire. The fire broke out about 2:30 a.m. Saturday, October 19 and swept through the old building. Nothing can be salvaged.

At a special meeting October 22, building owner Thim Choy, met with the board members and other volunteers who work with the House of Refuge to plan for the future.
Everyone was in agreement that we re-open to the public as soon as possible. Choy offered the use of the parking area of Edmonton Cash Register which stands kitty corner to the former mission site, on the south west corner of 103A Avenue and 95th Street. Services followed by a meal of soup and sandwiches will be held there seven days a week from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., from October 25 until a new location is found.
We are actively seeking another building to re-establish our full Mission services in the Boyle Street area.

The House of Refuge Mission is an Christian based independently run Inner-City Gospel Mission located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Our focus is to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ and through our faith provide food and assistance for people who are suffering in many ways.

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Matthew 25: 31-46
