How You Can Help the Oaks Indian Mission
James 5:16 tells us “the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective.” Please pray for the children in our care, our staff, and for those who support us. Without the fervent prayers of the believers who support us, we would not be able to achieve our goals in caring for God’s children in Oklahoma and the surrounding states who so desperately need us.
ASK YOUR CHURCH TO BE INVOLVED
There is an opportunity for your congregation, as a church body, to serve in helping the needy children of the Oaks Indian Mission. Please be an advocate for the Mission and encourage your church to unify to serve in some capacity whether financially, physically or in prayer.
Remember Oaks Indian Mission in your estate planning to ensure your continued support in the future. We would be happy to direct you to those individuals who are available to assist in planning your estate.
