OCC Prayer Opportunities


Shoeboxes full of gifts can bring happiness for a moment—but introducing young hearts to eternal life through Jesus Christ is our ultimate goal. Please consider joining us to pray year-round on behalf of these precious children and their families.

Spiritual Impact Story for Philippines

"We praise God for OCC, many siblings go to church every Sunday. Many children saved and are serving the Lord until this time. Children and their parents testifying about Jesus who saves lives."

Praises and Prayer Requests from Philippines

  • Praise God for enabling the team to reach the unreached people groups, including the Mandaya Tribe and the Kalagan tribe in Mindanao and Mindoro, through the shoebox distributions.
  • Praise God the NLT, sRLTs, and RLTs are each functioning in their own roles, but are still working interdependently and serving in unity.  Praise God for the increased number of volunteers on the sRLTs and the difference they are making for Jesus.
  • Praise God for the TGJ trainings, from the Train the Trainers to the teacher trainings, which were completed in all three major islands. Praise Him that TGJ classes have reached new islands.
  • Pray for the recruitment and selection processes of candidates for the vacant positions on the NLT and RLTs.
  • Pray the teams will be able to adjust to the delays in receiving the training materials and will still be able to complete the trainings by their target dates. Pray for the ongoing TGJ classes- pray more children will grow in the Word of God and that the teachers will lead the classes with compassion and love.
  • Pray for the remaining distributions. Pray for the safety of the volunteers, partners, and teachers as they travel to remote areas for these distributions. Pray for upcoming travel for the vision castings, MP trainings, TGJ training, recruitments, and interviews of potential volunteers.
