Coming Together as a Community – Daystar Gives Back in Oklahoma
On Wednesday, March 26 and Thursday, March 27, Daystar Television will be airing the network’s Give Back Oklahoma specials, featuring footage of the relief effort taking place in the aftermath of the tornadoes that hit the region in May 2013.
This past November Daystar donated a fully furnished, 1260 sq. ft., 3 bed/2 bath 2012 Clayton mobile home, complete with new furniture, stove, refrigerator, air conditioning unit, washer and dryer, and basic household essentials to Roy and Diane Vuncannon – a retired couple who lost everything in the storm.
Mending Hearts Church, in partnership with Doug Stringer’s ministry, Somebody Cares, also provided the couple with fencing for their livestock, a storage building, a storm shelter and a front and back deck for the new home. Russell Dobbins of Cheka, a local construction company, partnered with Daystar for all the contracting work done on site.
Daystar contributed financially to local churches through our partnership with Somebody Cares, a ministry that specializes in mobilizing the local church in times of disaster. Church of the Harvest served as a staging area for supplies sent by Somebody Cares, while Emmanuel Baptist Church became a point of distribution for the surrounding area. Destiny Church put off moving to a new sanctuary so they could help with the relief efforts by turning their sanctuary into a warehouse to receive and distribute goods from.
Apart from the aforementioned relief effort, Daystar also donated $10,000 to Joey and Johnna Wallace, a young couple who also lost everything in the tornadoes that hit the region.
The Oklahoma Give Back specials can be seen on Wednesday, March 26 and Thursday, March 27 on “Joni Table Talk” at 2:00am, 7:00am and 8:30 pm EST, and online at Daystar.com/
