Women of Compassion 2018

Women Reaching for Jesus, Helping Children

More than 150 Women of Compassion members gathered for the annual Cups of Kindness event held April 14 at the Mayo Hotel in Tulsa. Women from across Oklahoma gathered to hear a great speaker, worship together, fellowship with one another and award grants to important projects at OBHC campuses. The event’s keynote speaker was author Kristy Cambron and worship was led by Amy Frazier.

186 women from across Oklahoma came together to fill TWO cups on kindness in 2018.More



When the time came to cast the vote, two very pertinent projects rose to the "top of the cup."

  1. The first $50,000 grant was awarded to Baptist Home for Girls, Madill, to renovate two older residential care cottages to include the Children’s Hope program which assists single mothers and their children in need of help by teaching competent parenting skills and financial responsibility through mentoring, training and sharing Christ’s love.
  2. The second $50,000 grant was awarded to Baptist Children's Home, Owasso, to repair a 500-foot road stretching from the gymnasium parking lot to the vocational-educational building. It will also repair the campus walking trail and provide a new riding lawn mower for the 40-acre campus.
  3. The remaining $86,000 will benefit all the ministries of Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children.
"Women of Compassion has made such an impact on the ministries of OBHC by filling the different needs we have year after year,” said Shonda Flowers, OBHC Development Representative. “After five years, I am amazed how our group has continued to grow every year. The generosity of Women of Compassion is contagious and our women have told their friends about their excitement."
