An oasis is place of refuge within a place of danger. The first thing that comes to mind is a place of trees and a bubbling spring of life giving water in the midst of a harsh and barren desert. So many women on the streets of Ocala could define their existence like wandering through a harsh and barren desert. At TG, we want to give these women a place of refuge, a place they can come and feel safe, to refuel their spirits. Out of this desire came Oasis Nights @ TG. Every third Monday of the month our ladies join together to minister to the emotional and physical needs of their fellow women who call the streets their homes.
For the ministry of TG to have its greatest impact upon the streets of Ocala, we have to go to the streets, instead of hoping they’ll come to us. So, a band of some of the most passionate Christians among us team up to tackle this mission. After each Saturday night gathering, our team launches out, led by Holy Spirit, in hopes of divine appointments!
The unsung heroes of the Street Team are our prayer warriors who cover those street walkers in prayers of powerful intercession. Without such people interceding for our street team, those divine appointments may not have such an impact as we’ve seen so far. Overall, we’ve seen some amazing things come from this mission model.
