Oaks Indian Mission Receives Surprise

OAKS, Okla. – In a child’s eyes, birthdays can be one of the most important days of the year. Recently, employees from Cherokee Casino & Hotel West Siloam Springs, with the help of generous casino guests, made sure the children at Oaks Indian Mission would have unforgettable birthdays this year.

Casino employees purchased 24 gift cards in the amount of $25 each to give to each child at Oaks Indian Mission. The cards will be distributed to the children on their birthdays.

Don’t Take Education For Granted

“How did you do on your spelling test?” I asked the young child who lives at the Mission. With a big smile she exclaimed “I only got one wrong!” Lisa (not her real name) has come a long way since joining our family at the Mission. She has the opportunity to go to school and to learn. This is an opportunity I took for granted when Cathie and I were raising our daughters in the suburbs of Kansas City. Learning and school was just part of our DNA. Education then and now continues to be high on our list of core values. That is probably why three members of our family of four have doctorates and the youngest of the family is in graduate school.

Serving Children

Dear Friends of the Mission,

I am surprised at how fast the time has gone since August and my first day at the Mission. It’s been eight weeks. The weather is changing at Oaks but not my passion about my mission, the staff’s mission and your mission in the life of the children that we serve in Christ’s name.

A View from the Mission:

An occasional e-letter from Doc Peterson

Dear Friends of the Mission,

The changing seasons at Oaks Indian Mission reminds me of how change can be both disruptive and welcome. We’ve seen lots of changes at the Mission during this past year, including a commitment to communicate more frequently with all our partners via an occasional e-letter.
