Hire an OAA Student and Support the Mission Trip to Brazil!  We have 36 OAA students who are going to be going to Franco da Rocha, Brazil in March to help build a church, do evangelism, and hold a VBS program.  Several of them would love to help you with things around the house to help raise money for the trip.  They can do things like raking your leaves, wash your dishes, vacuum, and so much more!  In return, all they ask is a donation for the mission trip!  If you would like to hire a student to help you with something contact Chaplain Seth Clark.  913-449-5768.
