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 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 your life.
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.
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 Ministry.
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 Oasis Ministry.
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 of God.
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 of God.
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
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 Ministry.
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
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).
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
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 money.
Tsk tsk ... Silly wabbits.
We have a job. We work for the LORD.
And ... WE SERVE YOU, FOR HIM.
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
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
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.
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 fellowship?
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.
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
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
WE NEED THOSE WHO KNOW THE CHRISTIANITY OASIS
MINISTRY IS REAL ... TO
If sharing this is

mind and heart … Contact our Boss.
You will like this part ...It is a Toll
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
If you do not feel led to give ... Don't.
Either way ...
Luv ya more than you will ever know.
