The Roseville Christian Church will be holding their annual soup supper to benefit OFOP Wednesday, November 2nd, at 6pm. This is always a fun event. On top of the delicious soup and fixins, they have Christian entertainment by Steve Parker. We hope you’ll find the time that night to go show your support. The church is located at 215 W Broadway, in Roseville. 

Hope to see you then!


I want to remind everyone about a couple of dates that are very important to the success of our annual fundraising for building materials. 

First, the Stronghurst area churches are once again collaborating for a Chicken Noodle Dinner at the  United Methodist Church in Stronghurst on Saturday, November 5th from 4:30-7pm. Please make a point to go thank them for their effort!

Our 6th annual OFOP auction will be held Saturday, November 19th at the Annex in LaHarpe. Lunch will be served (soup and sandwiches) from 11-12:45, so come anytime during that period to fill yourself up and get a sneak preview of the items to be auctioned off. The auction will begin at 1pm so don’t be late! This is a really fun day, so we hope you’ll make an effort to, not only come yourself, but also invite your friends, neighbors, family, and complete strangers. 100% of the proceeds, as with all other OFOP fundraising, goes directly to families in need (not corporate salaries for directors, staff, etc). This year’s auction items are beginning to come in, and it should be an impressive spread! Don’t miss it! It’s also THE place to order your official Kansas project sweatshirts!

See you soon!


It was a great weekend in Kansas for the  OFOP volunteers. We were able to spend a little time with the Deweese family, take down the rest of their home, eat lots of good food, and worship with their son, Doug this morning at Lifehouse Church in Abeline. God is good, all the time. 


This is your last chance to reserve your spot for this weekend’s Kansas cleanup project. Final numbers are needed for lodging. A few are driving their own vehicles, while others are riding in a van generously loaned to us by the LaHarpe Christian Church (Thank you!).

Here is some information you’ll need to know:

The church van LEAVES the LaHarpe Christian Church parking lot at 6am on the dot. Please arrive a few minutes early for loading. 

The group will be checking into the King Solomon Christian Camp in Solomon, Kansas during a very brief stop at approximately 1-1:30pm. If you’re driving separate, please do not arrive at the camp beforehand without giving at least 24 hrs notice to the camp. 

Please bring $10/night per person for lodging costs for the use of the facility. 

The camp has separate dorm rooms for guys and for girls. These rooms have bunk-beds with mattresses, but you’ll need to BRING BEDDING (SHEETS, BLANKETS, AND PILLOWS)AND TOWELS, along with your usual TOILETRIES. 

We will be eating at local restaurants during this brief trip, so prepare your budget accordingly. 

Be preapared to get dirty. We’d strongly recommend bringing gloves and long pants. You’re welcome to bring tools like hammers, prybars, chainsaws, etc, but these things are obviously not required. 


GPS will do NOTHING for you at this particular location (other than sending you on a wild goose chase, 10 miles away from the correct location. Ask Roy how he knows). If you’d like to put Solomon Kansas in your GPS as a destination to point you in the right direction from the start, that will be fine, but Solomon exit on 70 is where you’ll want to turn it off. The camp (lodging) is located 3 1/2 miles North of the Solomon exit off of 70. The Deweese residence (job site) is located 4.2 miles North of the Solomon exit off of 70, or approximately a mile North of the camp. 

If you have not already notified us of your intent to help, please do so. We look forward to seeing you soon!



George Link and our brothers and sisters at the Burnside Christian Church are all ready for tomorrow night’s Fish, Chicken, and Brisket dinner to benefit ONE FAMILY ONE PURPOSE! We hope you’ll all make it out to support their efforts. Come hungry between 6-8pm, and we’re confident you’ll leave satisfied! If I were you, I wouldn’t wait too long to show up. Supplies may go fast! Roy likes to dish out hearty portions!


It’s come to my attention that the “contact us” form on our website is not functioning at this time. If you have attempted to use it as a method of contact to reserve your seating in the van for the September 30th Kansas cleanup trip (or for any other purpose in the last few weeks), we are very sorry for the inconvenience.

In order to assure your reservation, please email us at or text/call (309)299-7926. We will try to resolve the “contact us” problem ASAP. 

Thank you!!
