Four years ago, several girls arrived at the Oasis. Each carried their own pain, but Natalia* was particularly hardened. She best related to things associated with gangs, including painting graffiti. Over the last few years, her heart softened and there was a change. It could be seen in her shifting interest toward academics, joining the worship team, and learning to play instruments and sing.
However, the most significant change came when she went back to her artistic roots and began painting. When an opportunity opened up for Natalia* to join a Lettering Workshop offered in June, she jumped at the opportunity. Now she is using her gift to build friendships, and the community around her can see the change in her. We are grateful that the Lord gave her gifts which she is now able to use to honor Him.

While COVID-19 quarantines have robbed all of a "normal" life and routine, nevertheless we are grateful to our faithful God who has surrounded us with love. The relationships we make during this time form us and help us grow. We thank all of those who have gone above and beyond to love and support us.
