Beaverton Baptist Church
Budget for Operation Renewed Hope
June 1, 2020
We at Beaverton Baptist Church are reaching out and help some families whose homes were damaged by this disaster. Our own church members, Chuck & Karen Case, live on Wixom Lake. Thankfully, as the water was just beginning to rise, filling their crawl space and starting to inch up into their home, the Edenville dam breeched. The lake drained so quickly as it crashed on downstream, breeching the next dam and flooding the town of Sanford. We are helping the Case family as they put the pieces of their lives back together. There are so many others whose lives have changed unexpectedly and dramatically as they lost most of if not everything they owned. Many don’t even have Jesus as Lord to help carry them through the months ahead. We would like to share the gospel of Jesus with others, so they can have that peace that passes understanding as they move forward. Thank you to Operation Renewed Hope for giving this blessed “God Opportunity” to share Jesus in this part of the vineyard.
ORH Gift: $1,000
BUDGET: $1,000 – HVAC SYSTEM
Since there are so many organizations, churches and groups that have come in from all over, and are handing out food, cleaning supplies, and personal hygiene products, we feel led to help out a family or two with much-needed home repair due to damage caused by flooding.

Chuck and his son have already done most of work cleaning up the water and dampness out of his crawl space and home.
Chuck’s said his first priority is his HVAC system. He called a guy about replacing the ductwork and getting a new AC unit put in. The man is swamped with jobs right now because of the disaster. He said he will get back with Chuck as soon as he can.
I was trying to see how I could split up the budget for different uses, but in Chuck’s case, his first need is the HVAC. So we would like to put the $1,000 toward getting that HVAC system replaced and running for Chuck and Karen. We don’t know when it will be able to be installed. All the HVAC businesses are swamped with jobs right now.
In Christ Jesus,
