ELIM PACIFIC MINISTRIES
September 16, 2013

I am nearing the end of my third visit to the Oasis Empowerment Centre serving the ladies in recovery here. For this trip, a three month one, I had to forfeit my job to enable me to be away for an extended length of time. That is a measure of how I rate the amazing work that is being achieved here. It really is invaluable service and I have seen lives changed as the ladies become free of the addictive mind changing habits that have had a grip on their lives for so very long.
Not only does this establishment serve ladies in recovery but also ladies escaping violent relationships and victims of sex crimes offering a safe place to reside while they piece back together their lives and before moving on into other accommodation. They help their ladies go on to gain employment and suitable and appropriate housing for them and their dependants. Ongoing support is offered enabling and empowering them to be and to remain fully integrated back into their society safely. It is one of the few church organisations that I know of which fruitfully exists to serve their community.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more accommodation to serve more ladies.

I have seen women have hope for their future restored to them through this amazing work and have tangible experience of the love of the living God in their lives. Its an amazing work being achieved here and its impacting many lives in an enormously powerful way. The material used by this ministry is unashamedly Christian and is very powerful. On my first visit to Guam I was witness to many receiving a believers baptism in the ocean, most of those being baptised were recovering addicts of some description. As well as fighting their demons effectively and being equipped with the tools to continue to do that, these ladies often find the only living and active God in the process. It is life changing.
