Oasis for Orphans is a ministry that was started in 2004 to help care for orphans in Africa. Last year, Rick and Ann Smith and their children moved to Kenya to work with the orphans. Each year the children of the Chapel have a project to help. This year TGA raised money for shoes for the orphans.
In their blog, Rick and Ann, detail how awesome our God is. Here is their post:
Can Shoes Be A Miracle???
Every year at Christmas time, the children of the Chapel work together gathering their dollars and coins towards a compassion project. Many of the children empty their banks, or give from gifts they have received, or help with odd jobs around the house to earn money towards this project. They are generous beyond belief! Two years ago, they helped raise money for the deep-water well here in Kenya. Last year they helped get bunk beds for Dorm 2 at the Children’s Home.
This year as the TGA leadership team sat down to brainstorm what the children could do and an unusual idea came up. Instead of just getting something for the children at the orphanage, why not include the community as well? Everyone agreed and decided the most tangible and useful thing was shoes – new shoes for everyone at the community school! Cool idea! Read more here.
