Why We Ask for Love Offerings
Welcome to our haven before Heaven.
Christianity Oasis Ministry
If you are new to the Christianity Oasis Ministry
we certainly do not expect anything from you as you have yet
to discover just what God has led you to. Please read on to get a
sneak peek at what we're all about.
But, if you have been visiting the Christianity Oasis Ministry and
partaking of its fruits and will choose to take the time to actually
read the shared words within this message, you may come to understand
something in a different light and find promised blessings come upon
The Christianity Oasis Ministry began back in the early 1990's as a
very small street Ministry. Christianity Oasis was a physical Church
(building) for some time, but preaching to the choir was not our sole
calling and we felt led to bring in more souls to the Lord. In
particular ... The lost and troubled.
With the leading of our Lord ... It has evolved into an Internet
Ministry over the last decade or so, where we now reach tens of
thousands of souls each month. It is like evangelizing on every
street corner in the world, at the same time.
Over the years, the Christianity Oasis Christian community has become
very popular. In both the interactive areas and
non-interactive areas. According to the stats of our server of all
web pages within the Christianity Oasis community ... An average
of 110,000 unique visitors are led to the Christianity Oasis
Christian community monthly (This stat includes visits to ALL web
pages which we have created of which there are thousands.)
Hundreds of those visitors have chosen to become members of
Christianity Oasis interactive areas (Forums and Chat Rooms) and
enjoy many extra Christian features within the forums and chat area.
True Christian fellowship in an atmosphere of safety, peace and
serenity, being one of the best treasures within.
What is it that people like about the Oasis?
It is because of the Holy Spirit within.
Not just within the the Oasis itself, but rather the Spirit
emitted from the thousands of Christianity Oasis studies, programs as
well as the forums and chat room. As well as the Spirit within
the souls who have been called and have chosen to share His
Light thru them with others within this Ministry. You can feel
the truth within the words and deeds. As a result, it has
brought forth the truth that Christianity Oasis ...Is God's
If you have been sojourning through the Christianity Oasis Christian
Community, then you know ... You've felt it.
It is why you keep coming back.
Countless souls are coming to know Jesus and many that do know Him
are establishing a better relationship with Him as they befriend many
more fellow Christians and those souls who came here hurting are
being healed from within by the healing formula of truth and
the Spirit of God within our Members.
We have many teachers and pastors who write and request to use our
material in their preaching and teaching in schools and Churches.
We have received literally thousands of testimonies by E-mail which
proclaim how they have been saved by God by way of the Christianity
We have a plethora of testimonies within the forums which reveal
renewed understanding, enhanced Faith, healing and lives having been
changed due to the Christianity Oasis Ministry being used as a tool
Why We Ask for Love Offerings
Though we deemed it as a noble concept to provide the Christianity
Oasis Ministry without any financial support from others for the
first several years, and did so by working odd jobs ... We went broke
because we were unable to work away from the Oasis, because of the
Ministry growth and the time required to serve God properly. Over the
recent years, we sold all that we had to keep the Ministry
available for those souls who needed it.
We had a choice of saving ourselves or saving others ... We chose the
sacrifice path as our Lord did.
One of the things that we believe in, is taking a leap of Faith. I am
not talking about doing something that is a little risky; with hopes
that it will prosper ... I am talking about doing things that are so
seemingly impossible, that it is guaranteed to fail without the Hand
We took a leap of Faith and chose to serve God by way of the
Christianity Oasis Ministry for our Father andHis children and by the
Grace of God ... It is flourishing Spiritually.
But, financially, it lacks at times ... In particular during these
tough economic times and this is why we call on those who are being
served by way of this Ministry to assist us in keeping this Ministry
available ... IF they can, just as it is with every other
As Christians, we know that paying attention to the tiny details of
one virtue, can not make up for the complete neglect of another duty.
So as shepherds, teachers, and disciples of Jesus Christ and the
Gospel, we have invited and encouraged our members to make Love
Offerings so that this Ministry can continue to flourish as to reach
more souls for the Lord.
It all boils down to this:
The future of Christianity Oasis depends on Love Offerings. We are
God's servants and yours. We love our calling and serving our members
is an honor and a privilege. We sincerely hope from the bottom of our
heart that we can continue to do so, but if we do not receive the
needed financial support each month, from the souls who partake of
this Ministry ... Obviously we will be forced to consider other
alternatives in serving the Lord. It all depends on those who believe
in the Christianity Oasis Ministry and its purpose.
God's will ... Be done.
Where Does the Money Go?
This is our full time ... Job (more of an adventure).
We have chosen to give our lives to this Ministry, where we provide
others with a safe environment to learn of Jesus.
The Oasis Christian community is massive ...
This requires that we spend 12-16 hours each day maintaining this
Christian community. Our administration is very time consuming.
For example ... Dealing with keeping out various types of predators
from the chat rooms and forums that you see at other chat rooms and
forums, making it unbearable to hang out there much less learn of God
in Love and peace ...
We upgrade to new systems as needed to keep up with the necessary
technical changes that are required to keep up with spammers and
scammers to keep the Christianity Oasis community safe and serene for
our members and guests.
We also deal with issues which arise when you have hundreds of
Christians of varying levels and beliefs together in one place ... To
answering hundreds of letters that we receive each day from lost or
troubled souls that are led here by God and seek answers to
serious issues. As we all know, there is no quick fix ... But rather
a long term foundation of trust must be established as we
slowly lead these lost and troubled souls back to the Lord, from some
of the horrible places the world has taken them, leaving them lost
and feeling unworthy of Love and Grace.
We also create eBooks for Christian authors at no charge who seek to
get out their message, but the world will not give them an
We also create new Christian studies and programs for our members
often as to provide them with educational and spiritual means by
which to continue along the Christian path.
We optimize the thousands of pages within this Christian community
for the search engines as to keep pages highly ranked on search
engines as to bring in the sheep as we were called to do. (Note: 70%
of our studies, programs etc. are ranked on first page of Google
and/or Yahoo when optimized keywords are typed in.)
This is just a few of our daily tasks.
We also do small revivals if and when we get a lil extra income.
I could quote Scripture upon Scripture revealing that such servants
are to be provided for by those who partake of their works for the
Lord ... But, that is not the intent. We are simply providing an
answer to any questions that may be on some of the minds and hearts
of others who hang out here at the Oasis Ministry, as to why
we ask for monthly Love Offerings.
If we do not receive those funds by way of Love Offerings, we have to
work away from the Oasis as we oft times do and the lost and troubled
souls suffer as they do not get responded to in a timely manner and
they fall away. The Chat and forums become a playground for
predators. The studies and programs cease. No new features are
created. And, if one will ever watch ... The Spirit of the
Oasis slowly changes.
How Much is Needed
We were once asked ... Why don't you get a job instead of asking for
Tsk tsk ... Silly wabbits.
We have a job. We work for the Lord.
And ... we serve you, for Him.
Therefore this Ministry is our full time job and source
of income to provide for the Ministry and those who serve Him by way
of the Oasis Ministry. We need to be able to spend every waking hour
working on the Oasis and still be able to pay the bills and eat ...
How Much Do We Need?
We do not have a high dollar lifestyle as those from the Oasis
who have visited our old home can attest (which we lost due to lack
of finances and now live from place to place). In fact, most would
say that we live below poverty level.
Now ... We are very content, and Love serving the Lord,
so do not get me wrong and think that we are complaining about our
lifestyle and administration.
Not a chance !!!
The point is that we are not seeking to live comfortably. Just to
live, while we serve the Lord. The basics are all that we
require. So, we need only enough to pay bills and eat.
Believe me ... We know what a drag it is to talk about money.
You should try being the ones having to ask those whom they provide
service for, for their pay.
That sounds weird doesn't it?
How we would have the audacity to suggest that we serve you.
Well, God says that is exactly what is taking place and the Bible
also says a servant truly is worthy of pay for the work that he or
she does for Him.
Here is Wisdom ... People go to a Restaurant and someone does no more
than take your order and bring food to your table and most decent
people know it is righteous to give them a tip.
Cuz they served you.
Is this Ministry not a Spiritual Restaurant for the Soul?
Does your Soul not feed here?
Are we not worthy of a small tip for serving you in the place that
you find Spiritual nourishment, encouragement, education and
If one would just choose to give what they give a waitperson
to feed the flesh, to the Lord who feeds your soul ... God's
servants would not have to be begging for it.
Like the waiters and waitresses that work hard for their tips, we
work hard too ...
It is not mandatory for you to give in most places, nor is it
mandatory here ... But, it is righteous.
That is the reason for our asking for monthly Love
Offerings, you know ... To keep the Oasis available for you.
Again ... If you are new to the Christianity Oasis Ministry, we
certainly do not expect anything from you as you have yet to
discover just what God has led you to.
But, if you are a regular member here and have felt His Spirit within
the Christianity Oasis Ministry, please consider this truth ...
We can not carry this burden alone. We need help from those within
the Body of Christ. We need those who know the Christianity Oasis
Ministry is real ... To represent.
If sharing this is still deemed by you as unacceptable or
wrong in your mind and heart ... Contact our Boss.
You will like this part ...It is a Toll free call.
His number is 1-777-P R A Y E R.
Ask Him to reveal truth to you. Ponder and pray on this and
ask if this is His Ministry or just 'some website.'
For those who feel led to help support this Ministry ... Expect the
promised blessings as we both know that Christianity Oasis
is His Ministry.
For those who have given to this very worthy cause in the past years,
we say Thank You for giving to The Lord by way of the
Christianity Oasis Ministry and we hope that you will choose to do so
in the future. And though you may not hear them ... Many lost and/or
troubled souls also thank you too.
If you do not feel led to give ... Don't.
Either way ...
Luv ya more than you will ever know.

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
