Since 1995, Touching Miami with Love


Apr 25, 2017

During spring break this month, our students will be attending OASIS Camp in Central Florida sponsored by our partners at Branches. We are so excited for this opportunity for our youth. Please be in prayer this month not only for our middle and high school students from Touching Miami with Love Overtown and West Homestead sites, but also for students from all over South Florida. Our youth staff is asking our TML supporters to be in prayer for all of those going to OASIS:

  • Students—to hear clearly from God
  • Staff—to represent Christ and show unconditional love and support
  • Worship Teams—to honor God in all they do
  • The camp speaker—that God would speak through him
  • Safety—as students and leaders travel from South Florida to Central Florida

We also ask that you continue to pray for our students when they return home.  Many youth become close to God at camp, some for the first time, but struggle as they return home because their friends and surroundings are often not supportive of their new life choices.

The theme this year is “Woke” and during OASIS, the youth will be encouraged to be consciously aware of what is going on in the world and invited to join in working against the injustices happening in the world. Along with a lot of fun in the outdoors with sports, canoeing, fishing, swimming, and more, students will choose to participate in many sessions, some of which include:

  • Eracism—Racial Reconciliation
  • Global—Around the World Issues
  • We the People—Know your Rights
  • Get Lit—Surviving without drugs and alcohol,
  • Down in the DM—Uncover the Secrets of Social Media
  • Flawless—Attacking the Lies of Society About Beauty and Image (Females Only)
  • Champions—(Men Only)
  • Lifeline—Suicide Prevention
  • Vibes—Music and Its Influence

Thank you to our friends at Branches sponsors of OASIS Camp.
