A Christian school in Africa helps another school grow.

Ghana (MNN)–Theirs is a mission of change.Oasis of Love’s Elvina Miller says it’s a vision she’s had since the 1950’s.

Since the early days of ministry, that passion has been shaped into a vocational training center, which began training students in 1997. The school is situated on the highway between Prampram and New Ningo, one hour from Accra, the capital of Ghana.

Miller tells the story of how they were instrumental in helping a large college in Africa. Following a visit to the Oasis Church, that school’s founder and president sent his wife to the Oasis Institute for a six-month course.

Upon graduation, she was able to help in the administration of the school. Then, Miller says, the woman’s husband died from a sudden heart attack. That’s where the training took over. “She took his place and she thanks us now for the wonderful help she received here in order for her to carry on the work there.”

Miller says that’s exactly how she envisioned the school would operate. The Oasis International Training Centre is an outreach of Oasis International Ministries, and a place where students receive Biblical studies as well as vocational training. “This all makes it worthwhile–going to other countries, spreading the Gospel to people. And then, getting such wonderful reports.”
