One Great Hour of Sharing

OGHS began seventy-one years ago in response to the devastation of World War II. In March 1949, a national broadcast on a Saturday evening asked Americans to give generously the next morning in their churches. A remarkable assembly of national leaders and celebrities gave their efforts to broadcast, and more than 75,000 churches responded the next day.

Today, OGHS serves people in over 80 countries around the world. Sponsored by eight Christian U.S. denominations and Church World Service, OGHS makes sure that we can respond to needs as soon as they happen and that tens of thousands of people receive support for ongoing relief, rehabilitation, and development.

Prayer Updates from Bangkok

PRAISES

As a result of your prayers and generosity, we were able to give food packets to our neighbors in the red light area the last 4 months. Each month we gave packets to the following numbers of people:

  • March: 241 [started March 18]
  • April: 852
  • May: 2003
  • June: 1437 [reopened salon services and reduced food distribution to target group.]
  • Total Food packs given: 4,533

We are excited to have been able to hire another 4 Thai women in the last couple of weeks. Since the bars closed and international tourism came to a standstill, many women are now seeking alternatives to prostitution.

PRAYER

Please continue to pray for sales and financial provision to increase to keep the women employed and increase and allow those who apply to leave prostitution.
