December Newsletter

Since he was a young child, Elmer struggled with extreme social anxiety. His mom would often pick him up from school early because he was having panic attacks and just wanted to be home. He’d sit in his bed and not talk to anyone. As his mom, I worried about him. She’s a single mom working several jobs and felt helpless because she didn’t have the means to get him the help she felt he needed.

However, in early 2022, one of Elmer’s classmates invited him to a place called “Kidz Klub” that he could go to onWednesday’s after school. Elmer nervously accepted the invitation. When he showed up at Kidz Klub, he was greeted with a hot meal, lots of high fives from Oasis leaders, and a sense of “welcome” and “belonging” that he had never felt before. He started coming to Kidz Klub every week. When we learned that he was in 6th grade, we told him that he could also come to Oasis Youth on Friday’s and Encounter on Tuesday’s. His response touched our hearts: “I can do this 3 times a week??” Since that first Wednesday Elmer attended Kidz Klub, we have watched him blossom into a social butterfly!

We watch him run around, playing tag with his friends, laughing & watching movies, volunteering at special events, and playing games playing tag with his friends, laughing & watching movies, volunteering at special events, and playing games at youth and think to ourselves “only God.” His mom now shares, “I cannot tell you how thankful i am for Oasis. I’m happy for him. He’s not the same kid as he was at the beginning of the year. He seems happy now and always has something to look forward to with Oasis.” What a difference a year can make!

We ask that you please join us in prayer for the Oasis kids, teenagers, and families in Hollywood. We are believing that the spiritual darkness (depression, anxiety, perversion, and confusion) in Hollywood would be pushed back and instead be replaced with God’s Spirit of love, joy, light, peace, and healing. We are believing for families to be restored & united in 2023! We speak that the enemy has no hold on their lives.

This is the spiritual battleground that God has entrusted to us, and we claim this city for Jesus! Your prayers and partnership is the ammunition we need to keep battling for the lives of these kids.

HERE'S WHAT WE WERE UP TO IN 2022

Kidz Klub

At A Glance

Throughout the year, we served 3,887 hot meals to hungry kids & teens, traveled approximately 4,715 miles to bring them to Kidz Klub & Oasis Youth (thank you Lord for dependable vehicles!), and shared the life-saving message of Jesus with 547 souls through outreaches, events, and weekly programs.

Outreach

We want to meet both practical and spiritual needs. We hosted weekly food distribution outreaches, but also Thanksgiving, Easter, and Back to School outreaches! On Thanksgiving, we delivered Thanksgiving groceries with gift cards to families. On Easter, we got to share the true meaning of the holiday while offering families a fun place to bring their kids for Easter baskets, pictures with the Easter bunny, games, cotton candy, popcorn, and more! Our Back To School event resulted in 215 children & teenagers receiving backpacks while mom and dad got to shop for free clothes and groceries. Because of generous donors we took 25 children & teenagers shoe shopping.
