Desert Oasis is exactly like a cup of cool water to strengthen and encourage us all, and I can’t wait for it to be DO weekend!! I am so excited because each time I have attended it my heart has fallen deeper in love with God and Jesus Christ! Come and be encouraged! I can’t wait to spend time with others who are overcoming the world and giving glory to God!

Life Changing experience
My first DO was last year in 2017. I had heard about the life changing experiences other people shared from previous events. But after going, it became a life changing event for me as well!!!!! There is so much encouragement and support that pushes you to the next level! And the messages are God speaking direct to your heart!! It was a beautiful and blessed experience that I can't wait to go again!!!
