 The BOH center will provide a place where training and education can take place…  A place where the Hopeless can find Hope...A place where lives can be changed.


Project Description: The construction of an enrichment center in Orealla. This enrichment center will provide a place where education, training, and safe recreation can take place to bring hope to the people of Orealla. The goal is to share Christ by serving others...
