Lebanon Update


Monday, February 17, 2020
 


Dear Friends,

GOSPEL BAPTIST CHURCH, ZAHLE, LEBANON
Gospel Baptist Church in Zahle, Lebanon, is pastored by Karim Dahdah.  Zahle is a mountain town very close to the Syrian border.  For several years, ORH has helped the church reach these people.

The church by providing fuel oil, medicine, medical help, boots, coats, clothing, and food have brought many into the church.  Some have trusted Christ as a result of this ministry.  In addition to ORH, many other good ministries have helped them.  ORH thanks Dr. Jack Mitchel and his wife for their efforts through their ministry with Gospel Baptist Church.

This winter, through your gifts, ORH has sent $3000.00 dollars to help Gospel Baptist Church in its mission.  Pastor Dahdah communicated through Sam Stricklin that they need more to get through the winter.  Pray for ORH, that we will be able to send more funds this winter.

     “Jan, I sent you pictures last week showing Syrian refugees receiving aid. I realized later that two pictures and the financial report did not go through.  I forwarded them to you today.  I advanced the $1500 funds for this to Karim's church bank account on January 9.  Karim is asking if it would be possible for additional funds to be sent up until April when the weather warms up?
     Thank you so much for your love, concern, and generosity to these precious people.  Sam

CALVARY BAPTIST BIBLE COLLEGE


Tuesday, February 11, 2020






Dear Friends,

CALVARY BAPTIST BIBLE COLLEGE
PUERTO RICO
Operation Renewed Hope spent many hours with the Air Hope Coalition flying food, water, construction materials, and so much more because of Hurricane Maria.  This occurred in 2017 and 2018 in Puerto Rico.

Sadly, in 2020, there is work which must be done.  Dr. Johnny Daniels of Calvary Baptist Tabernacle and Calvary Baptist Bible College needs help.  College buildings were damaged and demolished.  The church and Christian day school buildings are repaired, but the Bible college is not ready for students.  The church has housed students off-campus but must bring them back on Campus.

The college needs to finish five more dorm structures.  The church has finished two structures for the men, but needs one more for the men, three for the ladies, and one bathroom structure for the ladies.  The college is receiving requests for enrollment, now; even international requests outside of the Caribbean.

The college needs $40,000.00.  Each structure averages $8000.00.  If you can help immediately, the church needs at least $15,000.00 by the end of February.  Two building teams are scheduled to come the first of March to finish the women’s bathroom structure.  The college must have building materials with which to work.

Send all financial help to Anchor Baptist Missions, 3232 Hendersonville Hwy, Pisgah Forest, NC 28768, (828) 884-7610.  Designate the funds, “Calvary Baptist Bible College.

ORH IS MAKING THIS KNOWN BECAUSE OF THE NEED.  ORH IS NOT ASKING FOR FUNDS FOR ORH.  Please download the attachment to see the needs.

God bless you,
The Operation Renewed Hope Family Around the World!

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!!!
