His Outreach Worldwide will host a barbecue fundraiser May 5. The food will be provided by Southern Coals and live music will be provided by Currie Wayne Clayton Jr.
The HOW BBQ Fundraiser will take place at 2770 Breezewood Avenue in Fayetteville from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $10 per plate, with all proceeds going toward the HOW Ministry School in Tamu, Myanmar.
The goal of His Outreach Worldwide is to share the good news and love of Jesus with all children. The organization does this through several ministry efforts that help local church food banks, helping children with critical health concerns, delivering water filters around the world, and running a women’s ministry and children’s school in Myanmar and India.
The ministry’s book “Sharing Jesus With Children Around The World” has been translated into 69 languages and distributed in more than 159 nations. It is transforming lives all around the world. One such place is the HOW Ministry School in Tamu, Myanmar.
HOW’s Founder and Director, Lynne O’Quinn, says that much love and support is needed in that area of the world. The city is considered to be the drug, prostitution, smuggling, trafficking “capital” of Myanmar as it sits on the border of India and shares “trade” with twin city Moreh, India. HOW’s goal is to change the area by sharing the love of Christ with the children in the community.
“We now have 238 students — preschool through 4th grade with plans for higher classes as soon as possible,” O’Quinn shared with Up & Coming Weekly. “These students are all Hindu and Buddhist. They are learning English through scriptures, Bible stories and Christian songs. We are the only English teaching school in the region.”
O’Quinn went on to say, “We have 22 extremely qualified staff. HOW’s leader of the school is ACA University's first woman to graduate with a theological degree, one of two to graduate with the highest honors. She speaks eight languages. Our principal has an engineering degree but chose to serve God through our school. Charis English Primary School is fully accredited by the Burmese government and has the government’s — as well as the community’s — support. This fact alone is amazing and of God.”
“As you can see, God’s hand is all over this,” she said. “There are so many miracles that have surrounded this. God is truly amazing!”
O’Quinn points out that for HOW’s mission to be successful, it takes the work of many people, and fundraisers such as the May 5 event are invaluable to continuing the effort. She invites the entire community to the event to learn more about HOW.
“I sincerely desire our Fayetteville area community to be made aware of the good and service HOW does throughout our community and the world,” she said.
