This is the last week of STAAR assessment! I can hear the shouts of excitement from all angles- educators, students and parents! Remember that the test is a part and not the whole of a student's learning. This past week, I celebrated level 1 of my golden jubilee birthday :). Yes, I am celebrating this milestone in 3 levels. The next level is a party. Level 1 was my exploration of all things dangerous! A big thank you to my incredible husband for making this happen and for his support. Things dangerous like riding a gondola lift pulled by electric motor across a mile in the air, crossing the US border to see all we take for granted as Americans and up close on a safari tour. I am deeply grateful for all of God's goodness. My life tank is overflowing with so much love, joy and gratitude. Thank you all for the birthday wishes and blessings. I am grateful to God for each of you. Below is a repost from my husband on updates here at Oasis Focus Inc. Love & Blessings!!
"Here, moreover, it is required of stewards, that they be found faithful" (1 Corinthians 4:2).
Each week we receive your prayer requests, questions and encouragement. We appreciate you taking the time to write and inform us how this ministry is blessing you and how Oasis Connection (TV program) is inspiring you and your families. Thank you for your partnership, together our Lord’s name will continue to be lifted high and souls will be drawn into the Kingdom. This post is to answer some of your questions and provide ministry updates.
1. Education has been a vital avenue in reaching people. We know that from our family and many others who mentor students in our schools. Back in January when we set our monthly goals for Oasis Connection, we decided we would dedicate three months to education. Texas is one of the few states with multiple education options. To that effect, we chose the months of April, May and June to focus on education options. The month of April focused on homeschool option with Homeschool Movement Pioneers the McCords. This month, we are focusing on Christian education option with Bethesda Christian School educator Mrs. Laura Scheufler. Next month we will focus on public school and highlight Christ ambassadors serving in our schools. One of our guests for this segment is a central administrator in public school and he is a strong follower of Christ. Our other guest is one of our board members here at Oasis Focus Inc., she has been a faithful servant of our Lord in our public schools for quite some time. Majority of our student population attend public schools. The great news is that across our state, we have many dedicated followers of Christ just like our guests who have been called to minister in our public schools. Be sure to watch Oasis Connection in June.
2. The Oasis Connection TV program continues on the UANetwork as a bi-weekly program on Saturdays at 9:30AM Central Time Zone. There are several ways to watch, which we have highlighted on the TV Broadcast tab of this website. We appreciate all the feedback. They have been instrumental as Oasis Connection grows in content. Please, continue to send us your feedback. We value them and do take time to read them all.
3. On off weekends when Oasis Connection is not on UANetwork broadcast, we feature past TV programs on our YouTube Channel and here on the website. The YouTube Channel typically features an excerpt from the TV program, while the entire program is available here on our website for at least two weeks. In the event you miss any of the current broadcast, be patient. The broadcast will eventually be featured here via the TV Broadcast archives tab.
4. Our annual Excellence in Character Scholarship Award is open, and application deadline is June 17, 2018 by 5:00 p.m. The scholarship award is for graduating seniors. You can help us by identifying seniors that meet the criteria in Dallas and Tarrant counties. This is our way of investing in our next generation of leaders. Please, visit the scholarship tab of this website for more information.
Thank you to everyone that celebrated my Beautiful Queen for her Golden Jubilee this past week. She is a rare gem that God has blessed me with. My daughters would not be who they are today thriving in both their spiritual and professional lives, if not for her. And I am a better man because of her. We love and appreciate her immensely. And many of you know firsthand, how contagious her love for God and people are. You are a witness to the Christ life in her. She is an epitome of beauty. Her internal beauty shines brightly to the glory of God! And to all our beloved mothers, we salute you for serving your families relentlessly. Thank you! Mother's Day salutations do not have to end with this past Sunday. God Bless you!
For The Cause of Christ,
Dr. Johnson Obamehinti
