OSA House and Sports Complex
In 2005 OSA purchased a residential lot in the Las Lomas zone of Collique. Extensive renovation and modernization of the existing house were completed in 2007. The ground floor of OSA House has two meeting rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and bathrooms with running water. The second floor has been remodeled to include living quarters for the caretakers of OSA House, offices for OSA staff, and a large community room. An apartment for missionary residence has been added on the third floor of OSA House. The apartment has a living area, bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom facilities. OSA House is the center of operation for our day to day ministries in Collique. For example, OSA House is used for the Living Water-OSA after-school program. This program is attended by approximately 45 children ages 8 to 11 each week day. The children receive educational enrichment in reading, math, and science plus tutoring help with their school work, religious education, recreation, crafts, and a nutritious meal each day. In 2006, OSA was granted permission to construct a “sports complex” on property behind OSA House that is owned by the Jose Galvito pre-school. This complex includes a concrete sports court, changing rooms, bathroom facilities, and a plaza with a park-like atmosphere for community social events. Team sports and recreation are providing wholesome outlets for teens and younger children who might otherwise become involved with drugs or other destructive behavior.
