In 2018, OBJC is excited to be taking three missions trips:
new hope children's home.
3 families from Oh Be Joyful Church will be going to Peru in April to partner with New Hope Children’s Home. We are looking forward to getting to know the children and will also be helping to build a home for the girls who are over 18 and are not able to stay at the orphanage due to their age. We would appreciate your prayers over our trip.
seed of hope ministry.
A team of eight will be returning to Thailand this summer to visit our friends at the Seed of Home ministry. We will be spending time with the kids and youth at the dorm, teaching English in the local school, and helping with any projects that our hands can do. We will be traveling June 12-27. Please pray for:
1) safety and health, especially handling heat and new food
2) friendships to be started and grown across language differences
3) open eyes and hearts in us to receive God’s love and truth
4) open doors and opportunities to share God’s love and truth
Navajo youth trip.
This summer, OBJC will be taking its youth to Navajo, Arizona, to serve those on the Navajo reservation through painting, cleaning, helping with yard work or other simple work projects. We will also be planning and leading children’s programming, including Bible lessons, games, crafts and reading activities. Our students will also learn about Navajo culture, experience the beauty of the high deserts, see a traditional Hogan with a Christian influence and much more!
