YEAR END REPORT
Every year, we put together a book of statistics, testimonies, and summaries from our weekly outreaches and trip details to help give you a
picture of happened within ORU Missions and Outreach. You can find out where students went on missions, who we partnered with locally, how missions and outreach impacted students, and so much more!
2013 / 2014
"Throughout the trip, we were able to really invest into people...to build relationships. It really helped me learn the power of intentional relationships. Seeing the change in people's lives while we were there, though we couldn't even speak their language, was so revealing as to the power of relationships. Seeing Jon, our translator, understand his calling, seeing our Catholic van driver change from sleeping during sermons at the beginning of the trip to dancing during worship and praying intensely during intercession by the end of the trip was an incredible change. It was all the result of listening to the Lord and letting Him use us to change people's lives."

2012 / 2013
"I got more of an understanding of just how much God loves the lost and the hurting and how much he loves ME. I learned how much God wants to use me to share this love with this people and how much my small time there made a difference in the lives of the people we encountered. I learned how important missions is and I definitely got more of a heart for missions and a heart for the hurting."

2011 / 2012
"We got to go to one of the orphanages 4 times and build relationships with the kids. Our first time, they sang us some worship songs and recited full chapters of the Bible. Our last time there, they sang again and prayed for us. They prayed for us. 3, 4, and 5 year old orphans with nothing laid their hands on a bunch of college kids..."

2010 / 2011
"I relearned how faithful God is. There are so many situations where the doctors give the kids at New Day no hope of survival and yet the kids almost always pull through."
