 “I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.” Ephesians 1:16

Dear Friends,

I have been recently reminded of the power of one. One pebble in a pond can start a ripple. One voice can break the silence. And one person, dedicated to the purpose of helping children, can impact their lives eternally. Without the faithfulness of people willing to give and pray, OBHC would not be able to continue vital ministries that are impacting lives, one child at a time. Here are a few of the “ones” who have been impacted through the ministry of OBHC.

853 - Number of single mothers and their children who have been a part of our Children’s Hope ministry over the past ten years. More than 300 single moms have had a place they can call home, as they use this ministry to give stability to their life and their children. See just a small example of the impact made by watching a video at obhc.org/ChildrensHope.

10,179 - Through the ministries of our Hope Pregnancy Centers, 10,179 babies have been born since 1986. With five locations serving the state, Hope is helping save the lives of the unborn and equipping moms and dads with vital parenting tools they need to raise their child in a nurturing environment.

166 - Last year, 166 precious lives accepted Christ as their Savior. God is doing amazing work in and through OBHC. Because of the faithfulness of so many, they have had a part in eternally impacting the lives of these people.

Countless - This past year, more than 5,000 children and families have been impacted through OBHC’s ministries. But it doesn’t stop there. God uses those He’s reached, to influence their families, friends, co-workers and many more. These numbers grow exponentially as God is faithful to seek and save those who are lost.

OBHC is grateful for the opportunity to be involved in God’s plans for children in our care.

May we count on your support this Thanksgiving season?

Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving,
Greg McNeece, President

#GivingTuesday-Helping with basic needs

On Tuesday, November 28, OBHC is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. OBHC has set a goal to raise $36,000 to pay for the cost of washing laundry for an entire year! Imagine the blessing you could be a part of by supporting a basic need for more than 200 children in our care.

At OBHC, laundry is one of many basic needs that adds up quickly. With 10 people living in one home, two houseparents and eight children, the cost of clean clothes increases to $150 per month. When you include all homes from our four campuses across the state, OBHC spends an average of $3,000 a month washing and drying. That’s $36,000 per year on laundry!
