After the Show: OMS Radio Ministry
We hope you enjoyed last night's (Sunday, Sept. 15) OMS radio program, featuring Larry and Susan Weil, OMS missionaries serving in Mozambique, Africa. It's exciting to share the stories of what God is doing around the world of OMS.
Here are our "After the Show" resources to better connect you with things you heard about on the program last night.
Would you like to take a short-term trip to Mozambique? How about serving for a longer term as the Mozambique field treasurer? Or maybe your heart was stirred to give to one of the three projects mentioned? ... the Mozambique water project, #407670, the mosquito net project, #407640, or the India flood relief project, #405610 by going here and adding the project number.
Other things mentioned on the program: connect to the One Mission Kids website or OMS Outreach magazine or the OMS-published book, The Vision Lives, by B. H. Pearson, which can be purchased on Amazon or by calling Barb Sandoz at 317.888.3333, ext 313.
We hope you enjoyed the program. If you have any questions, you can email us at email@example.com.

The Living Water Project
In March of this year, I traveled to the small community of Sitio Catalina, Philippines, for a water project ministry.
Little did I know how big God is that this would also immediately turn into a church planting project!
I met up with pastor Rely and Lalaine (national OMS coworkers), then journeyed with Rely and four other men from his sending church to the small Mangyan community that previously had no water, no toilets, no electricity ... and no money. Our task was to set up tanks and pipes to bring water from farther up the mountain to their houses. As we accomplished this, we brought the message of ‘living water’ from the story of the Samaritan woman in John chapter 4. I saw the impact this was making.
One week or so later, when I returned to New Zealand, Rely began his first church service there. About a month ago, the roof was put on the new church building! How cool is that?! We praise God “who is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine.”
Pray for many Mangyan in this community and farther away to join the new believers. Pray for financial provision for Rely and Lalaine, and pray for teams to go there soon to help with electricity and toilets.
--Owen Brown, Director, OMS New Zealand
