One of those ways was through your financial generosity and support, especially in regards to building safe, affordable housing through our Bearwater Park (BWP) housing project (Phase One completed/10 homes … Phase Two is in the planning stages/5 homes).
This development is a blessing on multiple levels. Families in our low income neighborhood now have quality, affordable places to raise their children instead of the drug & gang infested apartments that used to stand here. They have immediate access to all the services and opportunities Oasis provides. In essence, your financial gifts keep on giving!
Thanks to all of our generous donors, we raised not only the $75,000 to match the challenge gift for Bearwater Park, but an additional $40,000 came in! Beyond that many donors gave to other aspects of the ministry, so the grand total of the gifts was more than $215,000! This greatly reduces the loan we need to secure to start building Phase 2. Lord willing, soon more families will have a beautiful/safe/affordable place to call home in the neighborhood.

As a prayer request – there are still some hurdles that need to be overcome with the engineering approvals. Please pray for God’s favor and provision as we go through the process required.
