Matt Stensaas – Uganda Medical Facility Given New Power

 

Matt Stensaas sent us this report about the needs during the Covid 19 event in Uganda.  ORH was able to help the Government through Matt.  Now the Hospital can help Covid 19 patients.

 

“The Kilembe Mines Hospital was the best hospital in this area.  In the beginning of May we had floods that came down the Rwenzori Mountains and basically washed the hospital away.  What still remained was buried under about 5 feet of sand and silt.  They could not continue there at that site.  They were given a place to relocate temporarily near Kasese town.  Unfortunately the new place was not connected to 3-phase electricity.  Three-phase electricity is needed to run the x-ray machine, the sterilizing machine for all medical clothing and many other machines.  The hospital needed $6,000 to connect this electricity.  You all committed to give us $4,000 to give to them.  When we made that commitment known to them, they contacted the electricity company who in turn generously agreed to go ahead and begin the connection. Last Friday I got a message from the hospital administrator thanking me again for the money.  They were finally connected and had taken their first x-ray.  Because of this gift, people’s lives will be saved.  Thank you so much.  By His Grace, Matthew Stensaas,  Kasese, Uganda

PASTOR THANG – COVID 19 NEEDS FOR MYANMAR

   Pastor Neng Thang, Myanmar, was brought to ORH’s attention by a mission board.  ORH is thankful to help this brother.

   “After waiting for the lockdown for a few months,   I , along with my son and son-in-law (medical Doctor, working for Peace Corp) could buy some medical equipments and transported them to Tonzang Hospital on Tuesday, July 28. We consulted the Head Doctor as to what equipments are urgently needed and would be more practical. He requested several items which we could buy with the money in hands….I am sending you these pictures.…

SAM STRICKLIN – COVID 19 FOOD MINISTRY IN BANGLADESH

Brother Stricklin has been a great blessing to ORH. His ministry efforts have always been exemplary. He left his church where he pastored many years to reach the Islamic nations for Christ and train pastors. We are thankful for his compassion for the souls and the physical needs of men. Through his eyes ORH has been able to see a whole new mission opportunity in many restricted countries with medicine and relief work. Once again, he has sent a great report.

MYANMAR - BROTHER THANG MINISTRY TO GOVERNMENT HOSPITAL

Medical Equipment for Hospital

SECOND COMMUNICATION FROM PASTOR THANG


“May I thank you and the donors for the equipments. The Doctors, nurses and medical staff are thrilled to have received them. During this confusing and chaotic time of Covid-19, the hospitals are not well equipped at all. This local hospital in Tonzang town is lacking medicines, equipments, foods for the patients. They are more than happy and excited to see and use what you have bought for them. I am sure they will make good use of them. Remember that most of the people in this town are Christians.
NEW DESK FOR HOSPITAL

Please understand that even medical doctors can’t write even thank you notes just because of language limitations, but they are very happy and thankful.

Thank a million for your kindness and great concern for our people.

The Lord bless you!
Brother Thang"

LIBERIA - COVID 19 FOOD DISTRIBUTION

OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST IN LIBERIA ARE LABORING TO MAKE SURE THE CHURCHES, PASTORS, AND PEOPLE ARE HELPED.


























































































Panama Covid 19 Food Distribution


Jan, Tomorrow I am delivering a food box to Alberto.
He has worked all this time but his wife has not. 
Just wanted to give him a boost of encouragement.
He and his son are heavily involved in the electronic/
Internet ministry going on during our church restrictions

Here is another Family receiving one of the boxes.  Oscar pastored in San Miguelito 20 years before going to Nicaragua as a missionary.  They have been in Panama since the uproar in Nicaragua, where people were shot on the street where they lived and had church.  The time in Panama was supposed to be temporary, but Covid 19 forced some course corrections.



This is the pastor in Veracruz with his family that is still at home.  We are helping this family with the food boxes as well.  This community has one of the highest unemployment rates and no church members are working so no income for pastoral support.  Plus his secular work is on hold.
He is Kuna and the FARC rebels were out to kill him years ago.  They did kill some of his family.  He goes back to that area to take the Gospel and is helping Bible Translators with a secondary Kuna dialect.


This couple planted the church where they minister – probably 8-10
years ago.   His brother started a church where he still pastors in
Agua Dulce, where Simeon lives.  Their Church is several miles past where the Camp SI where the baseball team stayed.  I will be able to do this several times with remaining funds.



This couple was starting deputation to be missionaries to Holland, but their pastor resigned and left the country on the spur of the
moment.  So, he became pastor of the church.  They may have a second child by now.





Eduardo is the pastor in San Miguelito.  He followed Oscar when Oscar returned to Nicaragua as a missionary.  He had a medical condition similar to epilepsy and has not been able to keep a job since.  He lost most of his memory except for Scripture.  His wife has a growth on the back of her head, near the brain, and she is slowly losing her sight.






Candy is our single missionary who has worked on the coast (jungle villages) for years.  Her father was saved while she served in Belen (2nd church in jungle started from a medical clinic).  Recently she started an online fellowship meeting for ladies in ministry.  She has a hard time buying supplies because her hour is the last hour of business, and she cannot get home before curfew ends.  Her dad worked at the last medical clinic with Eli.



Jiovani became the pastor where he was introduced to the Gospel.  The church is located in a blue color social area.  Carolina was in our church since about 10 years old.  Phyllis taught her music and ended up playing multiple instruments and a very good vocalist.  They have been married several years.

Dear Friends,

Please read the full stories by hovering over the “click here”, hold down the “CTRL”, and then right click.  The full stories are informative and heart touching with great pictures.  These could be used by your church in a prayer time.

ALAN SUTPHEN – SOROTI, UGANDA

“Bro Jan,  below is a summary of the food assistance distribution, and several photos attached.  Thank you.

Since the lockdown was imposed in late March countrywide in Uganda many people who live in the town of Soroti and the surrounding villages have experienced food shortages. This is from both the lack of funds to purchase food and from a lack of food grown and harvested from their fields. Because of this multifactorial issue we at the Soroti Orphan Assistance Project (SOAP) have begun food purchase and distributions to the orphaned children at SOAP, as well as pastors from the surrounding area church-plants.

…We thank Operation Renewed Hope for providing the very generous $2,000.00 in funds to assist us in the purchase and distribution of this much-needed food. With the remaining funds we intend to repeat this aid program as the pandemic and lockdown continues here in Uganda.”


MATT STENSAAS – KASESE, UGANDA, AFRICA

Matt Stensaas sent the following message about the Covid 19 food distribution.  He is very encouraged by the work.

“Despite the lockdowns of transportation, church services, and public gatherings, God has been doing an incredible work.  Because of the love shown in giving food to people who are very desperate, God has opened many doors for the Gospel.  People have gotten saved and we are preparing for many new ministries once the lockdowns are lifted.”

MYANMAR (BURMA) – FOOD DISTRIBUTION THROUGH SAM STRICKLIN

David Sum, a good brother in Christ, lives in Myanmar.  He has been instrumental in establishing a Bible college for national pastors.  Sam Strickland is working with Brother
Sum to distribute food to the hungry.  Operation Renewed Hope sent $1000.00 for this effort.  Sam sent the following message Brother Sum.

“Dear Brother Sam,  Thank you so much for your great support for the extremely needy people in our country. I believe it is the Lord's doing. yesterday 50 "Iternally Displaced People" from Rakhine State, ran to Wat Ein Poh village, Hle Ku township. They are civil war victims. We will go and help them next week. I will surely send you the report with photos.  Thank you so much again for your self sacrificial support to our needy people. Every blessings, David”

Pray for ORH to be able to send $1000.00 more for this effort.

PHIL HUNT – FOOD DISTRIBUTION IN ZAMBIA

Phil Hunt is a missionary with great love for the people of Zambia.  ORH is challenged and blessed by his advancing ministry.  ORHPhil wrote the following to ORH. 

“Dear Jan, It was a blessing to chat with you on the phone two weeks ago.  We have organized and are prepared to distribute the funds provided through ORH specifically to pastors and church planters who have been affected by this global pandemic.  We have worked through a criteria that includes the following:
           A pastor, missionary or church planter.
           Priority will be given to the Faith Baptist Pastors Fellowship - these are men and ministries that have come up as a direct result of the church planting ministry that we have been associated with here in Zambia.
           Those who are alumni of Central Africa Baptist University who are in good standing with their respective church ministries.
Thank you for your efforts in this.  Phil, Philip S. Hunt  Philippians 1:20-21”

Please pray that funds will be available for further help to these Brothers in Christ through Phil Hunt.HuntH
