Joe’s Addiction

21 Sep

This week we sat down with Jamie Zumwalt, who helps run Joe’s Addiction, a coffee shop in Valley Brook, OKC.

As Jamie explains, Valley Brook is its own municipality  within Oklahoma City because its zoning laws allow it to be the only city in Oklahoma that allows for full nudity in strip clubs.

The sex industry is this small area’s only industry. Joe’s Addiction exists to love the members of this community and offer them hope.

Medicine For the Uninsured

13 Sep

Today we learned about Robert, a doctor in Tennessee who left his high paying job as an emergency room doctor in order to start a clinic for the uninsured.

You can hear his story here.

What you may not know is that there are several folks here in Oklahoma City who have done the same thing.

We hope to soon share their stories here on the Missional Living Blog, but until then, here is a partial list of these organizations along with contact information. If you feel led to volunteer as a medical professional or student, or as anything else, please contact any of these ministries and get started right away.
