Our ESOL students and teachers have been busy reflecting on what “home” means to them. See their work in the third issue of The Jubilee Journal.


Greetings from Jubilee!

This fall we’ve hosted a wedding, a Fall Festival, Sweet Potato Harvest, a 98-years-young celebration with our Coffee Worth, and a great gathering of over 300 people for Thanksgiving day. Just now we’re enjoying the wintery dark and sometimes cold as Advent is here! Sadly, we’re about to say “farewell” to our fall volunteer group, including our volunteer from Colombia who was here at Jubilee as a child with her family 11 years ago. Read about it in the winter newsletter here .

Renovation work continues at Jubilee

Even though refugee resettlement work has been slowed down we are very thankful for time and resources to improve houses that are more than 35 years old and have hosted more than 3,500 people from around the world. While working on a revised schedule, most days around our Welcome Center you will hear:

  • Cheerful chatter and dialogue of ESOL classes
  • Childcare kids singing the “ABC song” or cruising by in a stroller caravan
  • Hammering and sawing from the various work sites
  • Many reasons to keep on loving in these dark and dismal days!
