We began to promote this project during our 2021 Christmas Eve service, with 100% of our offering that service going to the oasis center; we received over $5,000 on that first night towards our $50,000 goal!
We then received over $11,000 on our next Sunday service. Within the first month of the project, we raised over ⅓ of the total budget!
We also gave all of the funds received on our 2022 Easter service towards the project. Our total from that day was, once again, over $11,000! With that offering, we hit 70% of our goal in just under 4 months!
During our 2022 Vacation Bible School, we challenged the kids to raise money for this project, showing them how it would bring clean drinking water to kids in Turkana. Over 5 days, with over 60 different kids attending our VBS throughout the week, they raised $756.90!
In our offering from October 30, 2022, just over 10 months (311 days) from the start of the project, we received the final funds needed to complete the project and more!
Thank you to all who gave to this project and helped us reach another community of believers on the other side of the world! We praise God and give Him all glory for our small church reaching the goal far short of the 2-year timeframe for the project!
