Refugio Solte is a ministry under the umbrella of Answering the Call, an international missions organization devoted to reaching people in difficult to reach places. Both Refugio Solte and Answering the Call were founded by directors, David and Joy Fuller. While working on staff as a missions pastor at a local church, David was traveling to many regions of the world ministering the love of Jesus. He was in the Middle East when God began to download a vision of a center where pastors and leaders could go for rest, refuge, ministry, and training. In 2002, after much prayer, David left his position as missions pastor and launched Answering the Call, a non-proﬁt 501(c)3 missions organization. ATC feels called to go to places that others don’t or aren’t able to go. Their mission is to come alongside indigenous leaders of other nations encouraging and equipping them to minister in their own communities and surrounding countries, as well as give care and relief to the poor, orphaned, and needy.
ATC continues to go to the nations to encourage the people on the ground and in the trenches. The goal for both Answering the Call and Refugio Solte is to come alongside Kingdom ministers and provide refuge, rest, and training, empowering them in their calling. Colossians 2:2 sums it up well, “We are devoted to investing in the lives of people from every nation in order that they be “encouraged in heart, united in love and know the mystery of God, mainly Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
