Recently, we had the pleasure of reading a post by Brian Bates of JohnTV that gave a good overall perspective of what No Boundaries International has done over 2012. It was interesting to read his viewpoint since most of No Boundaries’ staff seldom think about what has been accomplished but, instead, focus on what challenge is laying ahead. So we decided to share that with you, our friends and supporters, to allow you to see what you are a part of and how your time, resources and funds are being used.

11/19/2012 – Edmond, OK — An Edmond based non-profit targeting devastated communities internationally and prostitution and sex-trafficking locally held its second annual fundraiser earlier (last) month and raised significant funds to further their efforts globally.
JohnTV has reported many times on the local efforts by No Boundaries International to positively impact communities and individuals victimized by the sex trade, addiction and poverty in Oklahoma City.
In the year that No Boundaries has targeted south Oklahoma City, and specifically the South Robinson Ave. area, the organization has held a family friendly block party, free medical clinics, kids days, adopt-a-block activities, Jazz Concert benefit, a Fall Festival and Halloween Pics-and-Treats event, tree dedications for lives lost to prostitution, officiated a funeral for a young mother and street prostitute, conducts weekly street outreach, hosts weekly prayer meetings, organized local flier distribution for a missing & endangered teen, purchased a ministry outreach home near SW 42 and S. Robinson and so much more.
Many of the successes of No Boundaries International can be found on their YouTube channel (NoBoundariesOKC) and their new (updated) website. For more information, go to www.nbint.org or www.projecthopeokc.org.
Thanks Brian for that perspective!
