PERU 2019 CLINIC UPDATE


Thursday, November 7, 2019








Dear Friends,



PERU 2019 – Sepahua, Miaria, Bufeo Pozo

ORH thanks all who prayed for our Peru 2019 Medical Clinic.  The total team once assembled was made up of 51 people.  We were able to work the jungle towns of Sepahua, Miaria, and Bufeo Pozo.  On google earth search for Sepahua, Peru to see our location.  Buddy Fitzgerald, Baptist World Mission, was our missionary who lead our group.



Our trip required that ORH charter planes from Pucallpa, Peru into Sepahua.  ORH was glad to work with South American Mission – Air, SAETA, and HTS to use their planes  to get our team into Sepahua.



The clinic was held in 3 days due to the air transportation timing.  Our clinics treated over 1200 patients.  In order to get to Miaria and Bufeo Pozo the team traveled by river.  The first two days were spent in clinic at Miaria and Bufeo Pozo.  The last day was spent at Sepahua.



The evangelism was a great blessing with well over 150 people coming to Christ.  The mayor of Sepahua was instrumental in getting our permissions to do the clinic days.  He also trusted Christ as a result of the missionary translator, Marcos, witnessing to him individually.



The town of Miaria cleared land for a church the first week after the clinic.



Buddy wrote us, “They have cleaned up the lot by hand for the new church building in Miaria.”  He also sent a picture of their present meeting place.  (See the attachment)



We were thankful for the missionaries coming 15 hours by boat from the southern region on the Madre de Dios river.  Kristina Matson, Rachel Tarvin, Karina Stijnen, and Brother Whatley were a great blessing.  Brother Whatley has been a missionary in Peru most of his life.  He is in his late 70’s now.  Peruvian preachers also came with them.



Wilbur Sebastian is our national pastor in Sepahua.  He and other believers will follow-up the converts. We are thankful for Wilbur and his family who are faithful to work in Sepahua.  ORH is praying for enough money to support him with at least $100.00 per month.



ORH thanks God for the Junior Nursing class of Maranatha Baptist University.  Ann

Schmoeckel and Elizabeth Stille lead the group of young men and women to Sepahua with ORH.

HURRICANE DORIAN


Tuesday, October 29, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE DORIAN

PRAY VERY STRONGLY!!!



Please pray for Stephen Phelps who was scheduled to lead a building team into Freeport, Bahamas.  Sunday, Oct 27, he suffered a stroke while at church.  Pray God will restore this good man to His service.



We are now praying for a new building team.  Today, ORH began talks with a Michigan group that may be able to go.  ORH has purchased over $4000.00 of building materials and equipment for the work in Tabernacle Baptist Church, Freeport.  The materials have been shipped and are on-site.



REFUGEES IN NASSAU



ORH is financing the work of Dirk Irick and his wife who will help the Bahamians stranded in Nassau from the Dorian impact islands.  Please read Dirk’s letter.



     “Dear Jan Milton,  Hello, we are the Dirk Irick family.  We are missionaries to Nassau Bahamas and are currently on deputation raising support.  Our family had the opportunity to assist Victory Baptist Church in Nassau for VBS during the month of July and seen twenty-nine souls saved.

     Since hurricane Dorian our family has been eager to help the Bahamians.  The Lord closed many doors for us to go to Freeport.  We are so excited that the Lord has directed us to our “Island” of Nassau to encourage the refugees.  There are currently 1,600 refugees in shelters and the number is growing daily.  One particular area named Fox Hill has a community center with about 150 refugees.  Fox Hill is where our family stayed on our first visit to The Bahamas in 2015 and that is where the Lord burden our hearts to reach the youth.  We are very familiar with the area and have many friends there. 

     …We want to take the good news of Jesus Christ to these hurting people October 11th-19th.  Sincerely,  Dirk Irick,  Reaching the Youth of the Bahama”



As a result of their desire and specifics, ORH agreed to finance them up to $2000.00 for their efforts among the refugees on Nassau.



“Please click the link below to view our video from last week.  Thank you again for your support.  We will send you our prayer letter as soon as we complete it.  Dirk Irick”

HURRICANE DORIAN AND UGANDA


Tuesday, October 15, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE DORIAN

PRAISE THE LORD!!!



THANK GOD, WE HAVE WORKMAN FLYING TO FREEPORT TO HELP REBUILD.  TIM PLEDGER WAS ABLE TO CONTACT STEPHEN PHELPS WHO HAS AGREED TO LEAD A TEAM OF WORKMEN.



Stephen wrote the following:



“We want to go back to the Bahamas on November 4, Monday until November 9, 2019 Saturday. I will be bringing 5 men in total.”



ORH was able to purchase over $4000.00 of building supplies through your giving which will be used by the building crew.  Mike Coupe will fly them to Freeport in his Piper Aztec.  ORH is thankful for all the pilots who have flown missions in Dorian.



Uganda

VMA Clinic

ORH is enjoying the work that is being accomplished by the VMA clinics.  This is a report by Keith Stensaas about one of those clinics.  Please read the results.



“I’ll send the official form but wanted you to know how things went. It was a great first clinic, and I am looking forward to the next one. Here are the stats:

2 doctors / 1 nurse for pharmacy , 91 patients treated, 25 wellness packs given out, 31 salvation decisions.  On Sunday we had several in church from visiting the clinic. Saw 7 more saved and 7 baptized.  Good clinic all around.  Church was really uplifted!!Btw, just so you know, I still have not received the VMA funds. 😀  Keith”



Pastor Zebedee

We were able to do a clinic in Kasese, Uganda, with Keith Stensaas’ brother, Matt.  One of the pastors that helped with that clinic was Pastor Zebedee.  He brought many of his church members for help.  He wrote the following.



“…we lost our church member aged 67 years, and he died due to high blood pressure and diabetes, but praise the Lord he got saved during the clinic that you offered to us when you were at Kasese, And the family appreciated so much because of the medicine he received because it's what had helped him for all this time. He received both physical and spiritual medicine, he is now in heaven.”

DORIAN AND IMELDA


Friday, September 20, 2019



Dear Friends,



PLEASE DO NOT FORGET THE CHURCHES IN HOUSTON WHO HAVE BEEN DAMAGED BY THE IMELDA.  ORH IS IN CONTACT WITH TWO CHURCHES THERE.



HURRICANE DORIAN

PRAISE THE LORD!!!



“So, once again let me tell you. A heartfelt thank you!”



These words close a very loving thank you from Pastor Bain.  I am sure his expression of thanks represents Pastor Woodside and all who have been helped.



ORH takes joy in sending this special “thank you” to all who have helped in the Dorian effort, Flyn4God, Anchor Baptist Mission, Hearts with Hands, Mission Air Care, Landmark Baptist Church, First Baptist Church of Westwood Lakes, Catawba Springs Christian Church, Tri-City Baptist Church, all the pilots, and many more who have contributed to the efforts in Dorian..



The efforts are not over.  ORH has purchased building supplies from Lowes and will ship them to Tabernacle Baptist Church.  Pastor Guy Altizer with Windows of Heaven has now secured two men to help with reconstruction.  Pray that the supplies can be shipped in time for the workers to help rebuild.



Pray we secure pilots with planes to continue our shipping of supplies.  We need twin-engine planes.



Pastor Bain requested 15 kindergarten desks with chairs and 50 kindergarten chairs.  Later, he wrote.



“keyboard…, pulpit..., communion table….”

“We will need about 300 Chairs for church...the chairs and legs are rusted.”

“Good day bro hope you had restful day...can we get 7 teacher desks and 7 teacher chairs”

“Need about 8 air stress mattresses”



Please, contact, if you can help with these items.  You may call ORH at 910-987-5072 or email jan@operationrenewedhope.org.



Pray for others there on Grand Bahamas in need that Tabernacle can help.

HURRICANE DORIAN AND HOUSTON AREA


Friday, September 20, 2019





Dear Friends,





PRAISE THE LORD!!!

This week our pilots were able to fly 30 missions.  A.J. James, Mike Grimes, and Tim Lankford were in the air constantly.  Pastor Sheppard of Tri-City Baptist Church, Port Charlotte, FL, supplied necessary support people to stage and load the planes, so they could turn around quickly.  Please download the PDF for more information.



ORH needs pilots for next week.  Please call 910-987-5072.  An application will be sent immediately to become a part of the Air Hope family. 



Dave Spangler, Flyn4God, and Mike Gentile, Anchor Baptist Mission combined efforts to make sure the planes kept flying.  Dave set up a charge account for fuel with the FBO at Sebring which allowed the pilots to fuel and fly.  Dave worked with the airport officials to make sure we had the ability to properly store supplies.  We are thankful for all who participated.



Hearts with Hands and Anchor Baptist combined to move a tractor-trailer of supplies to Sebring.  Hearts with Hands supplied the supplies, and Anchor Baptist Mission supplied a trailer with semi-truck to haul the load.  Their cooperation was the source of materials for our air shipments.



Special orders did not upset the team in Sebring.  During the chaos of moving 1000’s of pounds of relief goods, they were able to find and fly all the special requests.  The pilots even brought back paint chips, so we could fly matching paint for the church walls.  The church is now having Sunday services and with the new painted walls school will start on Monday.



Anchor Baptist Mission has 402 more boxes of food supplies.  They also sent a K-Loader through Lighthouse Baptist Church in Panama City, FL which was struck by Hurricane Michael.

Pray our coalition will have the ability to greatly impact the islands.  Every box distributed from Hearts with Hands had a Gospel of John and Romans.  Gospel tracts were also in the boxes.



Continue to pray for the Mission Air Care pilot whose plane was damaged on landing.  Thank God no one was injured.  Pray very hard we will be successful and fight crews will be safe.



If you know of a person or church in need in the Houston area, please contact ORH at information in letterhead.

HURRICANE DORIAN








Saturday, September 14, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE DORIAN


Please, continue to pray for the pilots and planes which fly in our coalition of organizations.  A plane had a mishap last night landing in Sebring, FL, after a very successful mission to Tabernacle Baptist Church in Freeport.  The plane was damaged and will be out of service.  The pilots are safe with no injury. 



Hearts with Hands, Dr. Greg Lentz, has prepared another load of relief supplies for our flights.  Anchor Baptist will truck the supplies next week.  Our coalition will have the ability to greatly impact the islands.



Pastor Randy Barton with Anchor Baptist Mission is supplying a skid-steer with forks and a truck with 500 boxes of supplies.  That should arrive soon.



Landmark Baptist Church has delivered 207 boxes of relief goods for Tabernacle Baptist Church, our depot in Freeport.



Pastor Norris Bain, Tabernacle Baptist Church, sent pictures of the planes being unloaded and the distribution of the supplies.  The flights have provided a pressure washer, gallons of paint, and replacement electrical outlets.  The church is going to be restored for Sunday Services.



Our prayers are answered for pilots next week.  We will have 3 planes flying all next week.



ORH is thankful to be a part of this effort with these good organizations.  Pray very hard we will be successful and fight crews will be safe.

Hurricane Dorian


HURRICANE DORIAN







Thursday, September 12, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE DORIAN


Please pray for the situation in the Bahamas.  Many organizations are joining together to make a relief effort to those who are in need.  Hearts with Hands, Anchor Baptist Mission, Flyn4God, Mission Air Care, Island Outreach, Lockwood Aviation Repair, and Landmark Baptist Church.  Please download the attachment to see the work.



Dave Spangler and Randy Crow left yesterday morning for Abaco.  We have not heard from them, but we are certain they made it.  They are taking SAT phones and supplies to the churches.



Hearts with Hands, Dr. Greg Lentz, has delivered two trucks at this time.  One load is already in the Bahamas.  The second truck went to Sebring where Flyn4God has obtained a permanent hanger storage.  Pray for Hearts with Hands more trucks are needed, but they must now buy the contents for the future trucks



Pastor Randy Barton with Anchor Baptist Mission has placed a man at the Sebring staging site.  This man will coordinate obtaining needed items and helping the flight crews load the planes.  They are also working to purchase supplies locally to load the planes.  Pastor Barton wrote the following.



“Need a box of English Tracts. Do you know of a church near Sebring that might have some?  Pressure washer is about to be loaded on 1st sortie.  Paint will be purchase and loaded on 2nd.”


A church has graciously met the needs of the tracts and will deliver today or tomorrow.



Mission Air Care, Brother Earl Malpass, has made arrangement with the owner of a Beechcraft Baron to fly.  It is in Sebring and should be flying this morning into Freeport.  Pray that the Mission Air Care Piper Chieftain will be ready to fly also.



The MAC flight this morning will contain a pressure washer to clean Pastor Bain’s church, so they can paint for services on Sunday.  The paint will be shipped today by MAC if all goes to plan. 



Pray for Assistant Pastor Woodside who will receive and coordinate shipments and begin restoration of the Tabernacle Baptist Church.



ORH is thankful to be a part of this effort with these wonderful organizations and Godly people.  Pray very hard we all will be successful and fight crews will be safe.
