MERRY CHRISTMAS AND PRAY FOR THESE




Wednesday, December 12, 2018



Dear Friends,

 


PANAMA


The PDF attachment is about Martita, the lady in Panama, who has a physical complications from a surgery.  She came to our clinic in Panama in Oct 2018.  We are attempting to help her with medical care and improve her living conditions.  Please download the PDF, and pray for her.

 


HURRICANE FLORENCE


Pastor David Robinette sent the following update to ORH.  Please pray for him and his church in these tough days after Hurricane Florence.  We are thankful for all who have sent money to help.  God bless you, and Merry Christmas.



     “Jan,  I just wanted to touch base and keep you updated.  We received a gift of $600.00 from Florence Baptist Temple this week.  They informed us that they heard about us through your ministry.  Thank you again for all you have done and are doing for us. 

     ….  With the insurance settlement (approx. $30,000) and the savings we had set aside for a “rainy day” (literally in this case) we will be able to replace all of the sanctuary roof structure and repair the classroom and office area roof.  That estimate is $43,000.00….  This will leave us around $20,000.00 short of the necessary interior repair and restoration to both the sanctuary and fellowship hall…. 

     God has abundantly blessed in this process.  Our attendance has been very consistent even in the midst of holiday travel and the various illnesses that have been floating around.  We had a couple join several weeks ago and another couple have shown great interest lately.  We are praying for many visitors to our Christmas Banquet this Friday evening. 

     Again, thank you for all of your help and prayers.  We are addressing the shortage with our bank and are encouraging our people to give sacrificially so that we do not incur any long term debt (we are debt free).  I am certainly not asking for anything from ORH…just keeping you informed. You have already blessed us beyond measure.   Once the process is underway and we have a better estimate on the time frame for ceiling tile replacement I will check back with you concerning potential labor.  To His Glory Alone,  Dave”



If anyone can help this good brother and his church, please contact ORH.

PANAMA BLESSING


Saturday, December 1, 2018



Dear Friends,

 


PANAMA


In October 2018, ORH conducted a major clinic in the nation of Panama.  Our efforts were based less then 5 minutes from the Costa Rican border, in the town of Caisan where ORH used the local school.  The clinic serviced 800 patients.



The missionary sponsoring the clinic was Jim Childress, the first missionary to ever work with ORH.  Pastor Roderick, a national pastor, is seeking to start a church for the surrounding area.  National personal workers totaling 10 or more gave the gospel to each person, reporting over 300 making professions of faith in Christ.  Two invitations from the evangelized were received to hold church services in local homes.



Jim sent this progress report about the new church and one of the clinic patients.



“In our last email up-date I mentioned our medical clinic towards the end of October.  Here is some follow-up information:

Roderick has done follow-up visitation near the school where we held the clinic with several people receiving Christ as Savior.

Roderick and his team went to a neighboring town where an invitation was given to have services at someone´s home.  They located the person, visited in the area for a couple of hours and held an impromptu service under a shade tree.  34 attended the service.  The lady who gave the invitation saw her father and two other family members saved that day.

Roderick has been working with a family that is facing a crisis on several sides.  The 45 year old woman suffers from a botched surgery that cut some nerves, and she no longer has control of her bladder or bowels.  She lives at an annex of someone else´s shack.  Her roof is a tarp and the living area is without walls.  There is no floor except for uneven dirt.  A couple of children sleep there close to mom.  Mom sleeps on a piece of plywood.   She attended a special service Sunday (in the midst of much pain) and found salvation, along with several family members.

Roderick is seeing what can be done as to a few upgrades to the family´s living area.  I gave him $100 to buy some materials and some people from his church will provide the labor.   With the help of one of our Panama doctors, the lady has had two medical consultations that are over an hour away.  Roderick has worked to find transportation and dealt with the cost.  The lady can not travel on public transportation for several reasons.  Her next appointment is December 4 and Roderick will need resources for that effort.  His compassion for the people is evident and his sacrificial efforts are a confirmation.

Roderick has a second invitation to hold services in a different location and that will happen soon.  There are start-up needs for these new church plants and he is very limited with his funds.

Please pray for Rodrick and his family as their limited budget restricts their efforts.   We are working on getting him an older vehicle, but he will need funds to keep it running.  These efforts are an hour away from where he lives (and has a church at his house).  The cost of bus fare is $4.00 per person to travel during a given activity, which translated into $16.00 per trip if only his family participates.  Fishing and feeding, Jim”

UKRAINE BLESSING


Monday, November 26, 2018



Dear Friends,



Ukraine Blessings

Heating and Air

ORH sent $1600.00 to purchase two heating and cooling units for Oleg and Lori Enskyy’s church building.  ORH sought to provide heating during winter months for VMA clinic meetings.  Oleg and Lori sent the following message about the two units ORH purchased.



“Here is the first of our installed heating units!  They work great.  Praise the Lord!”



Download the PDF to see the wall units.



VMA Clinic

Oleg and Lori conducted the first Village Medical Assistant clinic for “Special Needs Children.”  This is a pilot project to bring hope for families experiencing these needs.  There are no such meetings available for the parents around the Enskyy’s ministry area.  Please read the report below and download the PDF.



“Dear Daniel and ORH,  Thank you so very much for helping us hold a VMA adapted to the needs of our community.  We had 15 parents of special needs children in attendance.  We had a guest occupational therapist/psychologist come in from another city.  She herself has a special needs child and the seminar was practical, encouraging and very motivating.  We had a light lunch/coffee break which gave us opportunity to mingle with the people we didn't know.  They gave us great feedback and asked us to do these types of seminars as much as possible.  What we saw from today was that we can do more good and build deeper kingdom relationships by providing a service that is lacking in our community.  Most of the parents who came today have children with MS or birth defects that are in need of physical therapy.  We are going to be praying about what next steps we can take to meet this need…. The Gospel was given, and these families were invited to our church's Thanksgiving service tomorrow.  They are all open to further contact and want to be notified and invited to further events that our church holds.  It was a very encouraging day….  I am attaching pictures and a list of the families that attended today.  Sincerely, Lori Enskaya for Holy Trinity Baptist Church, Mukachevo, Ukraine VMA 24.11.2018”



ORH sent $1000.00 for the VMA “Special Needs Children” Clinic in Mukachevo.  This money will provide at least two clinics.  Please pray that ORH will have the funds to conduct these events once a quarter in the Ukraine.

HURRICANE FLORENCE


Saturday, November 10, 2018





Dear Friends,



Bible Baptist Church, Wilmington, NC

This message just came from Pastor David Robinette, Bible Baptist Church, Wilmington, NC.  Pastor Robinette sent pictures of the people your gifts have helped.



“Jan, We received your donation yesterday and I announced it to the church during prayer meeting last night.  One of our men presented the Bible study from Malachi, emphasizing how Israel was accusing God of not being faithful in spite of His obvious blessings, and in light of their obvious disobedience.   We have seen God work through your ministry, through your obedience, which causes us to rejoice in His blessings.  I will provide some “before and after” photos of the area we will be allocating the funds for.  Thank you again.  Please don’t hesitate to send printed materials so that we may keep your ministry before the church and with the goal of becoming a financial supporter of your ministry once we are back on our feet.  I will send photos of the Foundations Conference (featuring Bill Hill and Mike Faidley) in a separate email.  To God alone be the Glory, Pastor Dave”



There is still much work left to do in these areas.  Please pray for the churches and families that must be helped.



Grace Baptist Church, Goldsboro, NC

This response by the Lynch family of Grace Baptist in Goldsboro came to ORH.



“Dear Mr. Jan Milton,  We would like to thank you for helping us to fix the ductwork under our house that was damaged due to the flood waters from Hurricane Florence. Our Pastor, Jason Stoeber, at Grace Baptist Church in Goldsboro, NC, told us that you donated money to help us repair our house and we are very appreciative and grateful.  I have attached several pictures with this email of the old ductwork that was torn out and then the company who came and did the repairs.  Now we have functioning heating and air again. Thank you again and God bless you!  The Lynch Family (Aaron, Brianna, Cole, and Wyatt)”

Thank God you have made it possible for ORH to help these good people of Grace Baptist.  Please download the PDF.

HURRICANE FLORENCE AND LAOS


Saturday, November 10, 2018



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE FLORENCE

Pastor Gene Tilly, Liberty Baptist Church, Wilmington, NC, wrote the following to ORH.  ORH through your gifts was able to provide Pastor Tilly and his wife $4000.00.  ORH is thankful to be able to have a part.



“I want to thank you for your kind gift to my wife and me. Hurricane Florence did over 20000.00 damage to our home. We were out of the home for nearly 6 weeks due to the damage and the mold. We have been able to have to damaged drywall, insulation and mold removed. Hopefully, with the help of your generous gift we can now begin the roof and drywall reconstruction in our living room, dinning room and bath. We had to completely gut the main bathroom.  Work is being lined up now to do the needed repairs. Your kindness assured us that we would be able to complete the necessary repairs.  Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts.  Pastor Gene and a Wanda Tilly”



Continue to pray for the needs in the Florence and Michael impact area.



Laos Flooding Victims

Missionary Derek Thomas sent word of the need of these Christian brothers and sisters in Laos.  The monsoons have caused great flooding.  Derek sent pictures of rice distributed through our first gift of $3000.00.



“Jan, Below (on PDF) are pictures of rice being distributed in southern Laos from the funds that ORH gave. I’m traveling there late next week.  Thank you for your concern for souls in Laos.  Lord bless.  Derek”



ORH has sent another $2000.00 for the efforts there to reclaim the homes and provide food where needed.  We are thankful for Derek Thomas and his love for the Laotians.

HURRICANE FLORENCE, SAIPAN


Thursday, November 8, 2018




Dear Friends,



HURRICANE FLORENCE

Pastor David Robinette, Bible Baptist Church, in Wilmington, NC wrote the following.  ORH through your giving sent $4700.00 to help his congregation after Hurricane Florence.



“Dear Jan,  Thank you for your unique ministry and for your prayerful consideration in regards to the needs of our church.  We are still assessing the damage through a trusted contractor, and are awaiting Church Mutual’s consideration of their addendum to the scope of work results.  The sanctuary roof replacement far exceeds the current settlement.  We are praying that Church Mutual will agree to the contractor’s estimate.  We proceeded last week with the repair to the roof of the fellowship hall.  Water intrusion in that area damaged the ceilings in the guest house (prophet’s chamber), a utility room, and a bathroom.  We are now making those interior repairs.  Total cost of that project was $4700.00.  We paid that out of pocket, and it will apply toward our $5000.00 deductible.  Your gracious gift will allow us to continue immediately with the interior repairs to that area.  Thank you again for your ministry toward our work.  It has been and will continue to be a blessing to our people.”



Continue to pray for the needs in the Florence impact area.



Saipan

Dr. Christian Wei sent the following report for us to read.  Please download the PDF to see his damage.  Operation Renewed Hope by faith has sent $3000.00 to help the ministry immediately.



“One of the Reporter reported that typhoon Yutu is the strongest typhoon to hit US territory in the US history.  According to the report that Yutu is the Category 5 typhoon, which is the worse typhoon ever in CNMI history, with disastrous winds of 180 mph and gusting to 200 mph.  Yutu caused great damage for the whole island of Saipan and there won’t be power and running water for at least half year. EUCON and her ministries in Saipan face challenge to rebuild but we are trusting the Lord to rebuild it back, brick by brick and book by book.  Thank you for all your prayers, our people are all safe and ready to rebuild.”

SAIPAN, UGANDA, HURRICANE UPDATE


Friday, November 2, 2018




Dear Friends,



Saipan – Dr. Christian Wei

ORH has committed to this good ministry, EUCON University, $3000.00.   The ministry was struck hard by category 5, Typhoon Yutu.  Please download the PDF from Dr. Wei about this devastating typhoon.  Dr. Wei wrote the following.



   “Dear Friends:  Many of you have shown your love and concern about the catastrophic damages of typhoon Yutu done.  First of all, by God’s grace, all lives are safe.  We are praising the Lord for that and thanking God for you to pray for our people to go through the terrible night.

   Now after a long night of calamitous attack by the winds of Yutu, the scene of Saipan in the morning is horrible.   Please see the attached file for some pictures.  Our school campus were ruined and some of the staff and faculty houses are also destroyed. The facility of Saipan as a whole is torn apart and it will take years to rebuild it back.

   However, after the decrease of the winds, our students, staff and faculty started rebuilding our campus and ministries.  Please pray that the Lord will provide materials for us to rebuild many roofs and walls and other damages.

   We will update you more about the progress.  Thank you so much for your kindness to pray for us.  God bless.  Humbly in Christ,  Christian Wei”



Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ on the Island of Saipan.



Uganda

We are so thankful for the preparatory work of Keith Stensaas for future evangelistic medical clinics in Uganda.  Our next clinic will be an area where Pastor Fredrick is working.  For him to prepare for the next clinic, Pastor Fredrick needed a motorcycle.  Your gifts made it possible.  Pastor Fredrick wrote the following.



“Jan Milton - Operation Renewed Hope, First and foremost, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude from the bottom of heart for the gift of a new motor cycle you have bought for me to use and reach the lost world with the gospel of hope.

May the almighty God abundantly bless you so much.  I and my wife Sarah, plus the Children we are very thankful and praying for you every day.  Sincerely, Pastor Kasajja Fredrick.  Thank you.”



Download the PDF to see the new motorcycle.  Pray for this good man of God.



Hurricane Florence and Michael

Michael Volmer wrote the following.



“Pastor Cuthbertson from Liberty Baptist Church in Pine Bluff, Akansas is coming this next week to Havelock, S.C. to deliver 50,000 John/Romans bibles (KJV) to Pastor Kohr (Freedom Baptist).  If you are interested in receiving any of them, he can be contacted….  For those of you down in Wilmington and S.C.  Please don’t hesitate to ask, we’ll figure out a way to get them to you….”
