After two years of dealing with COVID-related issues, OIS-KL, continues to make progress. With 236 students enrolled, even during international shutdowns of expatriates coming into the country, the school is making progress. Since the break-even number for enrollment is approximately 350 students, the school is still struggling financially. Please pray that the COVID vaccine will soon be distributed and foreign students can enter the country again. Your donations and prayers are still greatly needed and appreciated. The good news is the ministry to the students He has given us is thriving.

Let the classes begin! Oasis International School, Kuala Lumpur, opened with almost 100 students. This is a great beginning, and there is every reason to believe the school’s 600 seats will fill up quickly over the next couple of years. Thank you for your continued financial support during this first year.

Building Construction Scheduled to be Complete by February 2018
Enrollment is now open, and everything is on schedule for the September 2018 opening of school!
September 6, 2017
As construction reaches this stage, work must begin on the “finishing” components. This includes technology set-up, interior design, shelving for the library, air-conditioning, etc. These are costs for which Oasis is responsible—approximately $3 million. From this point, financial matters become critical. “On the ground” staff must increase and your support becomes even more critical. As you can see, we have a long ways to go to reach our financial goals, so please do what you can, and pray, pray, pray!
