What OCC Short-Term Mission Trip attendees are saying
“Asked how often they pray to God, most said every day. When preparing to close one of the sessions, one young lady asked if she could pray us out. It was such a touching prayer, it gave me chills to hear the earnestness and sincerity of a prayer of praise, thanksgiving and supplication. God is definitely at work in Granville Child Care Facility and it’s clear that they see and receive God’s love from the OCC Granville Mission Team.”

“This mission trip to Latin America was like nothing I could have imagined. I will never forget the love and compassion of the people I met. I felt welcomed in the homes I visited, the warm smiles, and the warmth of the people. To see the concern they had for their neighbor was surreal. I was invited in homes not as a stranger, but as a friend and I was very comfortable in the presence of people I didn’t know. I saw people loving and caring about each other. The people are so beautiful in my eyes.”

“We started the camp Monday and by sometime Tuesday, God revealed to me that this week would be little about basketball, but more about pouring into these boys, showing them gentleness, patience and humility, while at the same time challenging them to be the best young men they could be – not really being better in basketball, but in fearing God, and in being stronger young men in their homes, schools and communities, making wise choices, thinking before acting, etc.”
– Coach Charles Williams
