Dear Friends,

Tabernacle Baptist Church – Freeport Bahamas
In the early days of Dorian, ORH was led to Assistant Pastor Norris Bain of Tabernacle through contacts.  Through several phone calls the process of helping the church began.

Airplanes from the Air Hope Coalition began to make flights almost daily bringing needed building supplies and relief goods.  ORH purchased plywood, sheet rook, tape, mud, tools, cleaning supplies, nails, screws, paint, carpet, chairs, and things too numerous to mention.

Teams from churches and groups began to help rebuild, some of which were the results of contacts through ORH.  The airplanes eventually gave way to ships.  The cargos were larger, and the work of restoration moved ahead rapidly.

The attachment gives you a visual presentation of the progression of the rebuilding of the auditorium of the church.  The last text I received was a great blessing.  Pastor Bain sent pictures of the services of the church in the new auditorium.  He could have written “Wow! This is so beautiful.”  He did not.  He wrote,

“Awesome…Thought about the worth of a soul today.”

ORH along with Pastor Bain really believes that helping restore a church building and equipment is for one purpose, the soul Jesus died to save!  Thank you for joining us in this good work.

DORIAN CHRISTMAS PARTY BAHAMAS

Dear Friends,

HURRICANE DORIAN – FREEPORT BAHAMAS
Christmas is always a wonderful time of year.  Christmas 2019 was especially a blessing.  Hearts with Hands in Ashville, NC, initiated a Christmas party event sponsored by Tabernacle Baptist Church in Freeport, Bahamas.  Dr. Greg Lentz wrote the following text about the event.

“Jan with this being the 4th Tractor Trailer load of supplies to the Bahamas we  adopted 300 children for Christmas, and we delivered 300 back pack school bags , flip flops, shirt, and Christmas toys, also provided 500 children and families with food boxes and sent over cleaning buckets and supplies. Dr. Greg Lentz, Hearts with Hands”

Since the first days of Dorian, ORH has worked with this church and community.  Hearts with Hands has been a wonderful partner in this work.  It was only natural that ORH would once again join with Hearts with Hands by providing $4000.00 toward the community Christmas party.  Thank you, Dr. Lentz, for allowing ORH to participate with you to encourage children at Christmas time.

And, thank you, for selflessly suppling funds, supplies, airplanes, and much more.  Many sent personal funds; churches sent offerings; and organizations sent checks.  Without you, ORH could not help.  Download the attachment for a real blessing.

ORH NEW YEAR RESOLUTION






Tuesday, December 31, 2019

Dear Friends,

ORH NEW YEARS RESOLUTION!!!
INDIA
In addition to our new support of Soroti Orphan Assistance Program for 2020, by faith, ORH wants to start support for Dr. John Paul Moses orphanage in Bhadravati, Karnataka, India.  He and his father J.D. Moses have been faithful throughout the years in the face of crushing opposition.  They work with Vision2020Asia, missionary Jim Starr.  Please read the following from Dr. John Paul.

“Dear Uncle Jan and Brother Daniel Jones, Happy Christmas and a blessed new year ahead.
    Thank you so much for helping us to conduct these clinics at the prison and the leper’s colony. Many have been blessed with the Gospel and the medical aid. 
     Please pray that there would be a way for our missionary to visit these areas regularly for follow ups and hopefully start a small church for the new believers. There is a lot happening in our country and there is a lot of resistance. Please keep praying for us and our family as we remain faithful to the calling.
     There are many financial and legal pressures, I continue to believe that God will make a way.  I will be writing more on the NGO and the clinic which we had discussed earlier.
     I am also attaching the pictures of the kids at the orphanage. God has blessed us with a lot of work and responsibilities. Thanks a lot for coming forward to help. Please remember my family, especially my mother and father and this ministry. Yours faithfully in Christ, Jp and Eliz.” 

Pray for this wonderful ministry.  Thank you for your support which will help us to continue our “Homes of Hope” ministry in India (2), Nepal (1), Ukraine (Feeding), and Uganda (2).  Please, download the attachments.  If you know of a children’s home any place, please, write us.

NOW THIS IS CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEARS




Wednesday, December 25, 2019


Dear Friends,

NOW THIS IS CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEARS!!!
There are days when God’s blessings overcome any hardship that you ever experience. This is a report about one of those days.  In 2018, Pastor Steven Perrine and Victory Baptist Church faced the impact of Hurricane Michael.  Well, I will let him tell you…
“Dear Bro. Milton, I just wanted to take a moment to say how good God had been to us at Victory Baptist Church in Panama City, Fl.  On October 10, 2018 our town and church were hit by Hurricane Michael, a category 5 storm. We suffered extensive damage to our building.  We had a 68,300 deductible with our insurance company. Not sure what to do except to begin to pray and ask for God's help in this matter. Through the help of ministries like Operation Renewed Hope, Churches and individuals; God more than supplied the need that we had. Then through the faithful help of many people construction began as we set out to rebuild our building. God blessed and on October 27th, 2019 we had our first service back in our sanctuary.  It was our Church's 36th anniversary. There was over 100 people present as we celebrated this wonderful day and rejoiced in what the Lord had done. Praise the Lord over the last year since the storm we have had 20 plus people added to our church. And the icing on the cake was God provided for our mortgage to be paid off so now our church is renovated and completely debt-free. Again, praise the Lord, He is good all the time.”

ORH sends this to you on Christmas day so you can tell your family that God gave his son whose birth we are remembering with our festivities.  But we must never forget, God continues to give in each dark circumstance of life because he loves us.  In the face of our greatest heart aches, God sees!  He saw Victory Baptist Church, and many others impacted by Hurricane Michael.

ORH, thanks God that He allowed us through you to be a part of God’s grace in Panama City, FL.  Mr. Ted Weinberg and his crews worked, relentless, to finish this church.  Ted has partnered with ORH in the past, and he is God’s good man.  Please download the attachment.

Pastor Perrine what a great Christmas story! – “God so loved that he gave.”  Anytime you need ORH, pick up the phone.  We love Christmas!
 
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND GOD BLESS US, EVERYONE!!!

NEPAL AND INDIA CHILDREN'S HOMES


Thursday, December 19, 2019





Dear Friends,

NOW THIS IS CHRISTMAS!!!

ORH is thankful for your support and God’s amazing grace.  Through both, ORH has sent support to these children’s homes for many years.  Each year, there are more blessings from the work done.

Please read the messages about the children; and please, download the PDF’s for your prayer groups.  There is more information on the PDF about work being done

NEPAL – HOUSE OF MERCY CHILDREN’S HOME
James and Holly Tamang are in Katmandu, Nepal.  One of our board members visited with them and came back with a great report of the work they are doing in Nepal.  They have sent us this report:

“God is good all the time.  I am so grateful for His provisions for our ministries here in Nepal.  Even with inflation skyrocketing God is still providing and meeting needs here…. Thank you very much for your continual support to our ministries.  Through Christ alone, James & Holly Tamang

INDIA – HIMALAYAN CHILDREN HOME OF HOPE
Pastor Athem Chothe has proven himself faithful.  His home was one of the first supported by ORH.  One young man needs eye surgery.  ORH hopes to provide this surgery.  One young man is going to Myanmar as a missionary.  Once in Myanmar, ORH has committed by faith $100.00 per month to his support as a missionary.

Please go to the PDF to see the needs. 

“Dear Dr Jan, Greetings to you from Himalayan Children Home of Hope. The children and doing well and they just completed their final exams. Some of the older children are no more with us and we are able to take new ones and they are still small. I have two special needs of the two single boys. The smaller boy is called Sanjay Gurung who is in need of eyes surgery, please pray for him. The bigger boy is Angmei who is studying M.Div. at Himalayan Baptist Seminary and preparing to go back to his village in Myanmar to be missionary. Last winter he went to his native village by traveling four days on foot and he got so touched to take the Gospel to his people where there is no transportations, no educations, no health care. Please pray for him. Thank you so much for your prayers and supports.  Sincerely in His Service, Athem Khiang Chothe”

NEW CHILDREN'S HOME IN HOMES OF HOPE


Wednesday, December 18, 2019




Dear Friends,

NOW THIS IS CHRISTMAS!!!

Uganda - Soroti Orphan Assistance Program
Homes of Hope is one of the best things that ORH does.  It is exactly the definition of pure religion.

James 1:27
27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Missionary to Uganda, Alan Sutphen, wrote the following:

     “Bro Jan,  …Our children's home is called the Soroti Orphan Assistance Project (SOAP) and is on a 19 acre property that also contains the Independent Baptist Church (IBC), the orphanage and a primary school for the orphans. We currently have 45 children, ages 6-16, in separate boys and girls dormitories. After they graduate from primary school they go on to boarding schools in Secondary school or a vocational school of their choice. They are supported by donations from individuals and churches. SOAP supports the children until the graduate from Secondary or the vocational program. We have the children return to their villages three times a year during school breaks to maintain their relationships with their relatives.
     If you are considering supporting SOAP that would be a great blessing! Just let me know any details you need.  Thanks so much. Have a blessed week!  Alan and Elena Sutphen  Luke 9:2”

ORH will begin support of this children’s home immediately.  Each month ORH will send  $100.00 for food for the children.  Please download the PDF to see pictures of Soroti Orphan Assistance Program in Uganda.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO THE KIDS.

Christmas in Uganda


Saturday, December 14, 2019


\




Dear Friends,



NOW THIS IS CHRISTMAS!!!



Uganda - Soroti Orphan Assistance Program

Keith Stensaas hosted our Uganda 2019 clinic.  We had a great clinic with Keith.  With all our Ugandan partners there were 97 on our medical team.  We broke into two groups and treated over 2000 patients all being given the message of Christ.



One patient was a 17 year-old patient with a serious hip problem. Alan Sutphen in Soroti, Uganda is a medical missionary, and he helped ORH obtain surgical help for the young man and wrote the following.



     “Bro Milton,  The young man's name is Kaduma Christopher. He is a 17 y/o young man who dislocated his hip over a year ago.

     The labs showed no evidence of infection, so the surgeon is recommending a total hip replacement. As one who worked for 15 years in orthopaedic surgery, doing hip replacements in teens is not the best scenario….  But certainly, a replacement would give him much better mobility and better quality of life.

     I spoke to the surgeon today, and the price is $6,000 for the prosthesis, hospital costs, etc. He'll get me an itemized bill and I can send it to you.  Blessings, Alan”



Because Caduma Christopher is young, eventually, he will need another surgery.  Brother Sutphen also wrote this week.



     “Bro Jan, I spoke to the surgeon today, and he said Chris' surgery can be done next Friday. I suppose we would need the funds by next week….”



Pray for this young man.  His father is dead, and he lives with his grandfather.  Life can be difficult at times.  ORH wants to relieve some of that if possible.  They both have received the Gospel.  By faith, ORH is sending the funds for the surgery.



Thanks to Keith Stensaas and Alan Sutphen for their work.  Please download the PDF to see Caduma Christopher and his grandfather.
