Every time I donate, I must say, lives are changed. There is nothing that compares with the joy in a mother's eyes being able to support her child in a home. These kind of investments that make a difference, and are the kind that are eternal, and not just about dollars and cents.

I came to Oasis when I was needed to get sober. Now I work here and I see the lives changed. Ive celebrated my 3rd birthday and now I am helping others. The Oasis is changing lives. I may not be making a lot of money but I am giving what I can to help.

Ive been helping out by getting the emergency lighting and exit signs installed. Its great seeing progress. I believe in the Oasis and the work going on and support groups are really helping the folks stay healthy and sober.

Ive been attending Zion Fellowship and the love I have experienced there has been really healing and life-giving to my heart. Thank you for making it easy for anyone to feel at home and find God there.

I am committed to see Elim Pacific grow. Not only are there amazing volunteers and staff working together to make a difference, the lives impacted are so inspiring. The new Hidden Treasures project is starting to take off. The Oasis is seeing women's lives restored. Guam seems to have the highest rates of abuse against women per capita. Not only are the interventions effective, lives are made new. Join together to make a difference too.

I have been working with the Oasis for a couple years now and while there are always new women coming through the program, for me its as if my family keeps growing!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Not only impact Guam but establish a new work in Saipan and Japan as well. The problem of human trafficking is serious in our region and we are committed to making a difference.
