One of the foundation motivations of Oasis Ministries International is to build and edify the body of Christ. It is this approach that we take with us. We preach the Gospel, and use words when necessary is a saying that makes a lot of sense to us. After super typhoon Yolanda destroyed areas is Tacloban, Leyte, Philippines, We traveled in the wake as a small, unheard of non-profit. We found that some of the bigger groups and governments sent supplies but what was lacking was the one on one interaction with those suffering total loss in their lives. We brought tarps and helped them to get relief from the elements. We brought food and fed them. We spent time with them and ministered to them. After many organizations left, we purchased several sewing machines including an industrial Juki and a Singer pedal operated machine and a serger. Working with a local church and the local government, we were able to bring in an instructor and teach residents how to make goods to sell at local markets. We have since expanded this program and are encouraged by the results.
