• Distributed clothing to 65 children and 30 women in a small rural community. Afterwards the group shared in worship. Even if we didn’t actually convert anyone that night, we opened their eyes to the love of our Lord…
• Arranged for a group of young women from my sister’s church for a day retreat. We all had lunch under a big tent and later there was a Bible Quiz with prizes.
• Reached out to Christian teacher with about 17 underprivileged children. We distributed personal hygiene products to the kids, as well as, each family received rice, oil, dhal, sugar, and wheat flour.
• For my final project, my sister, Pastor, and I found a very small Lutheran church. On behalf of OSLC, we donated 10 Bibles and 10 hymnals. I provide lunch for the congregation.
