June 2024

June 26, 2024 - Armed Force Retirement Home in Washington, D.C.

Through God’s plan, Amos has a new opportunity to serve those who have given so much to our nation. Recently, Amos and his veteran handler went to visit the residents at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, DC. This beautiful facility and grounds have served our nation’s enlisted military personnel since 1851.

Everyone was so friendly and happy to see Amos! His handlers sat and talked with residents and listened as they shared stories. It was a blessing getting to know them, and we are excited to return and see them again!

It’s a joy to share God’s love and honor these heroes for their service!

June 19, 2024 - Summer Kick Off at Open Arms

Amos helped kick off summer with the staff and students of Open Arms last week! It is bittersweet to say goodbye to our friends when the school year ends, but we had a blast hugging each other and meeting parents and friends. We pray for safe, summer fun and rest for all.

June 12, 2024 - Shreveport Apartments

Amos enjoyed being invited to meet new friends at Shreveport Apartments in Brambleton last week, where the OSW Outreach committee helped kick off their summer programming.

Together we were present to share Jesus' love with our neighbors. Many of them enjoyed hanging out with Amos and the comfort that he provided. It was a fun way to get to know each other better and talk about the exciting things ahead for the summer.

June 5, 2024 - Summer Break

Amos and the team have been spending extra time with their school friends this week because we will miss them so much during the summer break.

Our loving father has led us to so many wonderful educators and students. We are truly blessed to be able to share His love with them!
