From the Director - Some time has passed since our last newsletter, not due to a lack of news but rather because of more duties, praise God! Many new groups, events, and opportunities to help others have stretched the office hours thin, but we are reaching new places and new people with our message of hope in Christ. Since last fall we have had over 17 new groups start. The website, some booklets, and pamphlets have been revised or updated. The Central Office has moved into a smaller, efficient, more professional location. We are looking to employ part time staff to better serve the needs of the groups and to handle the increased participation and outreach. Although volunteers have helped in the past, it is time to move forward in faith, trusting that God will use the groups to maintain the office through regular 7th
Tradition contributions along with literature and personal donations to the Central Service Office.

They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Acts 2:42

Our fellowship consists of the groups, which meet to pray and study God's word, to help others, and to offer God's healing through the 12 steps to others who suffer as we once did. The Central Service Office exists to serve the groups, and thus, our fellowship. This office develops and provides our literature and meeting supplies, maintains the website and group directory, provides information and help via email, phone, and surface mail. As we are a tradition-based fellowship, our office should be funded by tradition-based donation income from the groups and individuals.

Events 
2017 OO World Convention:
Overcomers from across the nation gathered in Washington, DC to praise God and share in recovery. This was in January at Prayer and Praise Ministry. The weather was beautiful and the Holy Spirit was upon us. Those in attendance were deeply moved by the honesty and humility of so many who have overcome addictions and worldly behaviors by the Power of the Cross. Speakers from GA, CA, DE, PA, NY, TX, MD, and OK shared experience, strength, and hope. Our host was the Church of the Firstborn, a congregation small in number and big in faith. God used a small group to encourage and enhance this world wide ministry in a mighty way.

 A Prayer for the Servant
The world today seems to be a never ending contest for our attention. The media is filled with reports of violence, death, and threats at every level. We are told that we are not safe traveling, at work, or at home. Praise God we are not of this world. Our hope is in Jesus Christ and He is mighty to save. So we need only ask for His strength and guidance, then walk in confidence as we obey His commands to love all while sharing the Good News of salvation. Let's pray now:
 
Father God, we praise you for the opportunities you provide for us to serve you. We ask for open eyes, that we may see your image in those around us, open ears that we may receive your instruction, and open hearts that we may convey your love and mercy to others. May our hearts be humble to receive your providence through others as well, so that all increase is from you, Lord, and may you be glorified in all we do and all we receive in and through your precious Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Amen
