OUR MISSION is to love and care for those who seek refuge from a war torn country.
OUR JOY is welcoming refugees from many nations to the United States who have experienced war in their home country. Since most of them have been in refugee camps, sometimes for 10 years or more, they arrive with few personal items. Oasis International helps them settle in St. Louis with furniture, household items, and clothes. English, citizenship, and computer classes are also made available to them; but most importantly they need our friendship.
OUR PRIVILEGE is to help connect individuals, churches and civic organizations with community outreaches to meet new refugees. One statistic we are changing is that less than 10% of the refugees resettling in St. Louis will ever be befriended by an American much less by the church.
OUR INSPIRATION is the love of God. We were loved and we are called to love.
