DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT
Since the COVID-19 pandemic has struck our world, many things have changed. At the Oasis, the manner in which we do ministry has also had to change. Our mission is still to encourage hope, inspire faith, and develop potential... but our methods have changed.
Each week— thanks to our partnership with the Valley Food Bank & City Serve—we’ve been able to hit the streets of Hollywood (and beyond!) to deliver essential items to families in need. You may have seen on the news that more than 50% of those in LA county have lost their jobs due to this crisis. That number—50%— is not just a statistic. It represents mothers, fathers, grandparents, and more desperately struggling to meet their children’s needs. We’ve seen it firsthand.
One family has 8 (soon to be 9) people living in a studio apartment. The two teenagers that attend our youth program sleep in the closet. They had scraped together any money they could find, hurried to the grocery store to get their items, but unfortunately everything they needed was sold out. When they found out that Oasis was doing deliveries, they were absolutely thrilled! The whole family met us out on the sidewalk to pick up their goodies— even 2 year old Miguel was able to get a brand new toy! The grateful mother continuously expressed her gratitude to us, and even kept sending us messages after we left to show how grateful she was.
There are countless stories like this family’s. People are in need. Not just of physical items— but of hope, relief, peace, joy, and of an assurance that GOD sees all, knows all, and is STILL ON THE THRONE!
