Ecuador Earthquake Update



Wednesday, May 11, 2016


Dear Friends,


Please read below a message from Sid Messer, missionary to Ecuador.  ORH was able to send $1000.00 for the earthquake in his ministry area.


     “I wanted to express my gratitude again for the $1000 that was donated for Ecuador. It is allowing us to have some open doors to people we would have never met otherwise.

     I've attached two documents. One is a list of where the money has gone. I've put an asterisk beside the ones which have receipts if you would like them scanned to you later.

     I've also attached a small description of some of the people we've ministered to recently. I hope that will give you some idea of how the donations are being used for the glory of God.

     Again, I appreciate your participation in spreading the gospel. The people are seeing first hand what mercy looks like. Thank you again for the help you've given.   For His glory,  Sid Messer Family , Missionaries in Ecuador  Eph 1:12”


Please download the PDF to see the work that Sid Messer is doing.  He is a good man in a difficult situation.  Please pray for him.  ORH has sent $1000.00, and hopes to send another $1000.00.  This is a great opportunity for ministry of the Gospel.

Sonogram for Buffalo Clinic


Monday, May 2, 2016


Dear Friends,


We want to thank Pastor Billy Gotcher of Trinity Baptist Church in Williston, VT for sending us information that a sonogram machine was available for donation.


Through their information, ORH was able to contact Jericho Road Community Health Center in Buffalo, NY.  This center operates to help the indigent, refugee, and poor of the community with health care, education, and spiritual help to honor Jesus Christ.  This NGO helps many thousands each year very much like a rescue mission would.


The center also has a mission in Serra Leone, Africa, which seeks to accomplish the same mission.  The center in Serra Leone also has many young ladies wishing to be trained in nursing.  Many years ago ORH started a second mission which follows the old teaching, “teach a man to fish, rather than giving him a fish.”  This was done by preparing teaching DVD’s that can be used in countries which might not have enough or any nursing training programs.  The Serra Leone clinic is our pilot program for this new phase of ministry with the Emergency Room skill-sets being taught.


We received this communication from Patrick Mellody, purchasing manager for Jericho Road.  Phebian in the greeting is the director of the Serra Leone clinic.


“Phebian and Jan, I have the two Nurse training DVD video packets that arrived here in Buffalo.  I gave them to Paul Violanti to personally carry down to Sierra Leone in March.  Jan, Thank you for this great effort to get these videos done for us and your desire to help Sierra Leone , lives will be saved and many locals that desire to be  Nurses will have a dream come true and allow them to help others and prosper!  God bless you all! Patrick Mellody.”


If this program of teaching works according to our hopes, it could open the doors of many countries to the work of ORH.


Again, thank you so much Pastor Gotcher for being willing to help ORH.

Ecuador Earthquake


Saturday, April 23, 2016


Dear Friends,


ORH has received a message from Sid Messer, missionary to Ecuador.  Sid is a missionary with Gospel Fellowship Association.  He is in the heart of the earthquake devastation.  Please read his communication and the need.


“We did not sustain any major damages to our home. But a home of a lady in our church was devastated. The home is not livable, and she and her family are now living with her brother who is housing five other families. Many families have very little to eat and drink and the earthquake has put a halt to people working. Therefore, they are not earning money to buy basic necessities.”


Please download the PDF for pictures of the work needed.  ORH has committed $1000.00 immediately to help this brother meet the needs of his people and those in the community around him.  Please pray for this situation.  If funds are available, Sid has committed to helping the community with the gospel as he distributes blankets, food, and water.

Fiji Update


Wednesday, April 20, 2016


Dear Friends,


Houston, TX



If you know of anyone needing help, please contact us as soon as possible with contact information.


Fiji Update


Fiji missionaries are reporting back.  ORH is so thankful that your gifts that provided for this work.  Below you will read the reports.  Download the PDF’s for pictures and further information.


Korey Mears wrote thanking ORH for your provision.


     “Bro. Milton,  Thank you for the $2000.00 that was sent. We have just completed rebuilding one house in the village, and repairing several other homes that were damaged. We had a group of young men from Alert Academy who are trained for disaster relief.

     The funds you sent purchased the tools and supplies necessary to do our rebuilding projects and to buy food to support the men as they did the work. I have attached a picture for you.

     We have the next team of builders coming May 10-30 who will be helping us rebuild the church that was completely destroyed as well as two or three more houses, depending on the funds raised.  I am sending out a newsletter in a day on all we have done and are doing.  God Bless, Bro. Kory Mears”


Missionary Paul Daku writes the following.


     “There are some church members who need to rebuild their homes.  We would like to help with building supplies, tin for their roofs, clothing and basics of living such as mattresses and pillows and other household items, as well as school supplies for the children.  Nearly every school in the North lost at least part of their roof and books and supplies as well.   We have also targeted relatives of our church members here in Lautoka who live in the North.

     At each place where we already took the relief supplies, we were able to share the Gospel with the families who were receiving the relief items.  Tracts were passed out, and as much as possible, the Gospel was shared in English as well as their mother tongue, and tracts were given to everyone.  We were also able to give a Bible to each family.


Please pray for these workmen and the Fiji Islands where they work.  The cyclone that struck the Islands was massive with some reports of 225 mph winds.  Thank God for these missionaries.

Malawi


Sunday, April 10, 2016

Dear Friends,

Below is a message from Eric Chapman missionary to Malawi, Africa.  Eric has appealed to Operation Renewed Hope for help with the crop loss and famine among the churches of his region of Malawi.   Please read Eric’s report on the current situation.

“Two weeks ago I put out a letter about the drought situation here in Malawi.  We have to date raised just over $10,000 for African Hunger.  We will wait one more week and then wire the funds over and begin to help those we can.  If possible we would like to help every family in our church-planting network that has 135 churches. This would cost about $24,000 and amount to $20 per family. This goal would be for a 50-kilogram sack of unprocessed corn and the cost of transporting it to them in the villages.

Even with all of these hardships in Malawi, we see the opportunity to preach the Gospel and offer the people the great hope of eternal life in Christ. Pray that the churches will look to Christ and receive some measure of revival in the midst of all this suffering. May our hearts be stirred to help and pray for these our Malawian brothers and sisters in Christ.”

ORH has committed $3000.00 to help the Malawi people survive.  Thank God for missionaries who seek the souls of men for Christ, and they also seek the welfare of those in danger of perishing physically.
