PANAMA BLESSING HELPING MARTITA


Friday, August 9, 2019





Dear Friends,



Caisan, Panama; Martita’s Care


While doing a clinic in Caisan, Panama, in October 2018, our doctors were asked to come to a villager’s home to help a woman in distress after a surgery.  Her home was a lean-to tarp structure against a home.  ORH doctors got involved with Martita; she had bladder surgery, and her bladder had been “nicked” allowing urine to escape.  ORH family members immediately went to work to help Martita and her daughters.



Jim Childress working with Pastor Roderick de Garcia led our October 2018 medical clinic where Martita’s medical and housing problems were discovered.  They continued to help her and sent us a report.



“While waiting on a site to build a room.  With limited medical attention, Martita has recuperated 90% of normal body functions that did not exist when she met our medical doctors and our church.  We are also helping the daughters with funds for legal documents and materials they can make handcraft things to sell.”



“So far, we have spent $1792.50 not counting some minor expenses and a few medicines.  We are very grateful for the participation of Operation Renewed Hope.  Martita now experiences a higher quality of life than what she had experienced.  But still has a long way to go to have a normal living experience.



Please download the attachment with pictures and a lengthier report.  We are thankful for Pastor Roderick, and ORH sends support so he can follow-up the spiritual impact at the Caisan Clinic of 2018.  He and Jim Childress are great blessings to the work of ORH.

ALBANIA AND UGANDA


Friday, August 2, 2019





Dear Friends,



ALBANIA BLESSINGS

God’s people are gracious and kind when supporting those working for the Lord.  In an update about Albania, ORH reported about Andi and Irda working with Michael Fiocchi, and ORH’s desire to help them with support of $200.00 per month.  God immediately sent a family wishing to donate toward their support.  We are so thankful that God’s people follow His leading in the support of ministry.



UGANDA 2019 MEDICAL CLINIC

The country of Uganda has always been a great blessing.  In July of 2019, ORH, once again, conducted evangelistic clinics there.  Keith and Sally Stensaas, faithful missionaries with Baptist International Missions, led our teams.

Keith’s new mission work is taking him into outlying bush villages, and ORH has joined with him.  Our team with Ugandan partners totaled 95 people.  This number made it possible to have two full medical teams.  The teams ministered in two villages approximately 25 km apart.

Over 2000 people came to the clinics received medical care and heard a clear message of the Gospel preached by national pastors.  Over 300 made a profession of faith in the Lord Jesus.  The national pastors have their names and have pledged to follow up the converts.  Keith Stensaas wrote this to us after the teams returned home.

“Brother Jan,

Wanted to send you a note to convey my gratitude for all your sacrifice and giving on our behalf.  I believe the clinics were a great success.  There were over 60 new people in the two churches on the Sunday following the clinics.  What a blessing!!  Thank you also, for the monetary gift.  That was truly an answer to prayer and was needed at the present time.  God always knows right when we need something!!” 

Please pray for these pastors, their churches, and Keith as they follow up these families.  Praise the Lord for those added to the church.  Please download the PDF.

As always we found many who needed more help than we could provide.  Pray for a young man 17 years old with a damaged hip that healed improperly.  Alan Sutphen also a missionary physician assistant is taking this to a medical doctor who may be able to help this young man with surgery.  Pray ORH will have the funds to secure this surgery.

HURRICANE MICHAEL UPDATE


Tuesday, July 2, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE MICHAEL UPDATE

ORH has received information from Ted Weinberg concerning Victory Baptist Church in Panama City, FL.  Victory buildings were badly damaged by Hurricane Michael last year.



Ted wrote the following to Brother Steve Perrine, pastor of Victory Baptist Church.  He is outlining things that must get done for Ted and his team to start restoration work in August.  Please read and pray for these things.



“We are about a month away from beginning the project. As of today, there are 5 people committed to coming in August. At this point we do not have a cook for the August team. Darcy will be driving down with our construction trailer in tow.  He will be bringing our tools and some of the materials.  Kevin McCoy is working on the building permit. Below are some items that we need your help with.

1. Check on the availability of a scissor lift that we can rent. It needs to be able to fit thru your double doors into the foyer and reach at least 20’ high. Do we need to reserve it?

2. The electrician that will be wiring the foyer lights could use our scissor lift to do his work. If the scissor lift could be delivered on July 31 then the electrician could wire the lights on August 1st and hopefully the electrical inspection could happen shortly thereafter. This timing is critical to keep scissor lift rental to a minimum and to keep the sheetrock install on time. Can you arrange for an electrician to do the wiring on this schedule?

3. We discussed having an architect draw up the details for the stonework at the church entry. How is that going?

4. We intend to start in the foyer as soon as we arrive. If there are delays in the foyer- work then we will work on suspended ceiling in another area….

Sorry to put all this on your plate.  Thanks, Ted” 



Pray that all the plans are successful in the tight schedule, so Ted can save money.



Ted has worked with ORH in Hurricane Maria with Dr. Johnny Daniels; in Hurricane Florence with Pastor Carl Wood; and now, in Hurricane Michael with Steve Perrine.   ORH has contributed substantially to Ted’s income each month so he can stay on site and continue restoration work.  Again, ORH will do the same here in Panama City.  ORH has committed $4000.00 to Ted’s missionary work through his church, Grace Baptist, in Owatonna, MN.



Pray for the work of Ted’s team.  Also, pray about going to Panama City and helping Ted.  Contact him at weinberghere@abwe.cc, if you have carpentry skills.

ALBANIA 2019 MEDICAL CLINIC


Wednesday, June 5, 2019







Dear Friends,



ALBANIA EVANGELISTIC MEDICAL CLINIC


It is always a blessing to tell about our evangelistic medical clinics.  In May 2019, ORH conducted four clinic days in Albania with missionaries Mike and Jennifer Fiocchi.  Mike is a missionary with Baptist World Mission.



This is the fourth clinic that ORH has joined with Mike Fiocchi.  The impacts have all been good with at least one church plant going strongly.  This clinic was conducted in the area around Korce which is in the south eastern part of Albania.  We visited 3 villages in the area, Maliq, Pojan, and Vreshtas.



The four clinic days were full of patients totaling 1075+.  As people came for their health care, they were asked to listen to a gospel message.  Mike and his faithful men, Ari and Andi gave the gospel as the team labored.  Four people came to Christ which was a great blessing.



As in other clinics, it was our great joy to go into an area which was heavily entrenched in religion and give a message of repentance and faith.  Pray now as we seek to follow up the work there.



Also, please pray for the people in the clinic area because of an earthquake which occurred on June 4, in the evening.  Mike sent us this message from the people in the area requesting help.



“The most necessary things to be considered for the following days:

Three meals/day for 180 people (breakfast, lunch, dinner) Beds, mattresses, pillows, blankets, Clothes, hygiene-sanitary day care packages, Latrines and portable showers, Kitchen utensils, Financial support for the restoration of the damaged houses, House furniture, We would appreciate your consideration for the above mentioned requests and cooperate with us to solve this considerable human crisis for these residents and Municipality of Korca.”



ORH has committed $1000.00 so Mike can help in the efforts.  Pray that this deeply religious area can be impacted by the compassion of Christ through the church.

Celina, OH and Malawi


Friday, May 31, 2019







Dear Friends,



OHIO TORNADOS

The tornados that tore through Ohio left many people in need.  Tim Shank from Calvary Baptist Church, Findlay, OH, wrote about known needs in the Celina, OH, area.



“Just talked to….  He is one of my former employers having worked for him for 7 years.  He is a leader in the Celina Church of the Nazarene.  This church is located about 100 yards from where a man was killed, and 6 houses are gone and many are seriously damaged.”



From Tim’s contact, ORH was able to reach Pastor Tom Cooper of Faith Baptist Church in Elida, OH.  Pastor Cooper agreed to help ORH to help the people in Celina that may be in need.  The goal is to give the Gospel and physical care.  Pray for this good brother and his church as they engage the world one soul at a time.



If you know of anyone in need as a result of flooding or tornados, please contact ORH. 



MALAWI VMA CLINIC

April 26, Eric Chapman and his team, conducted another medical clinic in a region of Malawi.  ORH has joined with Eric in these evangelistic medical clinics through the VMA (Village Medical Assistant) program.



The gospel was preached, and medical care provided to 223 people.  Eric wrote the following concerning the accomplished mission.



“Every person listened to the preaching of the Gospel before seeing a doctor and receiving medicine.  Two people were saved and about 8 others received spiritual counseling.”



ORH was privileged to provide $500.00 toward the cost of the clinic and is thankful for the partnership with Eric in the harvest of souls and the physical care of the people of Malawi.  Thank you, so much, Eric.  Please download the PDF to see pictures of the clinic.

UKRAINE, LIBERIA, FLOODING


Sunday, May 12, 2019






Dear Friends,

IOWA FLOODING

If you know of a church or an individual who has been impacted by the floods in the Midwest, please contact ORH with information.  It is always a blessing to help those who are in need.  Please send the church or individual name, address, cell, contact, email, and any other information.



MUKACHEVO, UKRAINE VMA CLINIC

Oleg and Lori Enskyy will be conducting another VMA clinic shortly.  They are working with the parents of special needs children.  Pray for these families who have little access to help for special needs children.  There has been a great spiritual impact in the lives of the parents as they receive help from professionals brought to them by the VMA clinic.



I have seen first-hand the encouragement to the parents of the children.  Pray God will use the compassion and love of Christ to encourage these good parents to believe in Christ.



ORH has sent $1000.00 to fund this effort.



LIBERIA

ORH is glad to announce our work in Liberia.  The Lord Shepherd’s Hope Foundation has been formed by pastors and leaders representing approximately 80 Liberian churches.  The foundation head is Pastor Joseph Nunu.  Pastor Nunu and several other Christian men and women have formed the foundation in order to work with ORH in the country of Liberia.



The future joint efforts of ORH and the Lord Shepherd’s Foundation will include assistance to Soul-winning Baptist Clinic, Village Medical Assistant clinics, ORH evangelistic medical clinics, birthing stations, INFUSE training medical training, agriculture efforts, training of pastors, evangelists, and building of churches.



Calvary Baptist Church, Pastor Gordon Dickson, of Findlay, Ohio, has also joined with ORH in this effort.  On May 4th and 5th, 2019, planning meetings were held.  Pastor Dickson, Willard Long, Tim Shank, and Jan Milton met in planning sessions, and conducted two special Church services.  Willard and Tim had just returned from a survey trip to Liberia.



Please put this on your prayer list.  It is the goal of ORH to establish joint efforts in many countries.  Pray we will have the funds necessary to make a deep impact with the Gospel of Christ into the nations.
