Exciting things are happening!

So much is happening around our family and church family! It is so awesome to see Christ bring people together is HIS time and then watch the vision we are following so diligently become a reality. Saturday a few of us Oasis folks visited La Puerta in Greenwood. We came along side some amazing people from different churches to help begin planting a garden for the community of Greenwood. La Puerta is more than just a food ministry, but it is also a place where families can go to learn to speak english, get help with homework and make new friends. Visit this blog to check out the progress and view photos from Saturday!


Today's church service was amazing! We had soooo many new visitors who came early just to help set up! God is really beginning to blow our minds. We have been through so many seasons of doubt, pain and just being unsure of where God was taking us. Through it all we have been in prayer and have been faithful as we let HIM lead! So, this Sunday, Oasis decided to dig a well in a third world country. We took up our first well offering today and our goal is to raise $5,000 by July! Let's just say that we are well on our way and we have extremely giving people in our church. That is funny because most of our congregation are college students.........broke, young college students whom we were told would never give money to church because they don't have any. I believe that God has a great sense of humor and He can use anyone.......!!! I am so excited!
