Pastor Peterson Update

Updated Jan. 26, 2022

Pastor Peterson continues to rest at home after undergoing several surgeries. He is grateful for the excellent care he has received and for those God is using to encourage his faith. Please continue to keep Pastor Peterson, Bobbie, and his care team in your prayers as they move forward with his treatment plan.

"You restored me to health and let me live. Surely it was for my benefit that I suffered such anguish. In your love you kept me from the pit of destruction; you have put all my sins behind your back." ~ Isaiah 38:16-17

Go-Haiti Update

Updated Jan. 26, 2022

Dr. Franco is asking for prayers for the Go-Haiti orphanage community. There are now 25 children and staff at the Go-Haiti orphanage that have tested positive for Covid-19. The one disabled adult in care at the orphanage that had Covid-19 died last Wednesday. They believe it was most likely transmitted at the school the children attend, which has 450 children enrolled. Dr. Franco and Pastor Rene, the supervisor on-site, are looking for a house to rent in the vicinity to quarantine those who are infected. 

Please continue to pray for the children and staff of Go-Haiti - that the virus is quickly contained and those who have contracted it recover rapidly and fully.

Living Generously

Updated Jan. 26, 2022

It is said that what a person does with his money tells a great deal about that person. If a person hoards his money, we call him tight or cheap. If someone wastes money, we can call him a fool or a spendthrift. A Christian manages his money wisely and gives it generously. The story of Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10) illustrates how the use of money can readily tell us about a person. Before Jesus changed his heart, Zacchaeus loved and hoarded his money. As a believer, Zacchaeus surrendered his life to Jesus, enabling him to give away half of his money to the poor. How are you using your money?

Fraudulent Emails

Posted Jun. 24, 2020

Lately there have been several fraudulent emails sent to OSWLC church staff and members that look like they are from the leadership of OSWLC. Scammers are very good at creating fake emails that are difficult to distinguish from the real emails we receive from various companies and contacts on a daily basis. Other churches in our area have been targeted as well, and sadly some have fallen victim to these email scams.

Please be extra cautious if you receive an email asking for a favor, to pay an invoice, buy a gift card, or anything that requires your financial attention, especially when the message tells you to not contact the sender due to being in a meeting or being too busy. The staff, leadership, and pastors of OSWLC never send personal emails asking for this type of assistance. Be sure to look at the sender's email address and not just the name listed on the message. All staff emails will have the @oswlc.org extension.

Unfortunately, scammers use information available on our website and social media to pose as staff in an attempt to scam you out of money. We cannot take contact information off of our website and publications, but we can educate our members on being aware of these types of scams. Please be vigilant and watch for these types of emails. If you receive something suspicious or are uncertain of the validity of an email, please forward it on to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
