During the 2015 calendar year, LINK will concentrate on ministry projects focused toward helping the Oklahoma Baptist Children's Homes, DaySpring Villa., and the Chaplaincy programs of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma.
The statements from their websites are:
"Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children is the largest provider of private, not-for-profit, residential childcare in the state. We do not charge for our services or accept government funds. We do not discriminate on placement based on race, color, national origin, or religious affiliation."
"We have the freedom to share the gospel every day because we receive no rent, tuition or child support from any source. We are funded through the Cooperative Program, churches, and charitable gifts from caring people."
DaySpring Villa is Oklahoma's only faith-based, certified shelter for domestic violence victims and the first shelter of its kind in the state for adult survivors of human sexual trafficking. Here, women and their children discover life without abuse and real-world solutions to restore their self-esteem, confidence, and, ultimately, reclaim their independence.
DaySpring Villa offers a unique approach to help battered and trafficked women transform their lives. More than a shelter, we are dedicated to helping our guests carve out a new path and a new direction in their lives and the lives of their children.
Chaplaincy is the most effective means of reaching secular society because there are times chaplains can go where the church cannot go. Chaplaincy provides many opportunities to extend the ministry of the local church beyond the “four walls” of the church facility.
Each month, when the Native Praise Choir meets for their monthly rehearsals, they will be bringing items assigned for the month. Items will help with services at OBCH, DaySpring Villa and the Chaplaincy.
Collecting items to assist with the ministries is not exclusive to the Native Praise Choir. Anyone who would like to contribute the listed items is welcome to do so.
If you need assistance, please contact Augusta Smith, Director of The Native American LINK, Inc. at firstname.lastname@example.org
