Japanese Typhoon - Post 2

Saturday July 12, 2014
 
Dear Friends,
 
ORH has received no information that would indicate great damage or loss of life as a result of the typhoon which struck Okinawa and then moved to  main land Japan.
 
As our good friend Ron White expressed.  "I hope that Operation Renewed Hope is not needed."
 
We did get this email from Matt Starin on Okinawa which indicated damage to the home and cars of one of his church members.  He is also checking the neighborhood around the church for anyone in need.  Pray that we could help someone that is lost to know Christ.
 
"Good morning,

Thank you for the email. We did have a church member and her two sons who had water damage at their home. The water came up four to six feet when the Tengan River crested and flooded their area. Both cars were completely submerged in the water.  A water pump purchase would of been helpful or one of those wet vacs.

Matthew Starin
Baptist World Mission
Okinawa Japan"
 
We asked Matt if insurance would help the church member and this was his reply.
 
"Mrs Kishimoto did not have insurance for flooding but her son Kei's car did. She has gotten a rental car for a month. We went over there Weds morning when it was safe and the water had just receded."

We are waiting to hear from Matt about what can be done to help this lady since she did not have flood insurance.  ORH would like to send Matt some funds to help Mrs. Kishimoto.

Japanese Typhoon Neoguri - Post 1


Wednesday July 9, 2014

Dear Friends,

At this time, the following has been accomplished through your valuable input.  ORH never moves to the work without solid information.

ORH has contacted Jared Baldwin with Harvest Baptist Church in Guam.  He has assured us that they are in good condition.  We have partnered with this great church to help with last typhoon in the Philippines.

ORH has sent word to Matthew Starin on Okinawa and is awaiting a response.

Missionary Tim Melton in Japan has responded and has promised to give us updates about needs.  At this time he is not in need.

ORH has also attempted to contact Pastor Craft of Maranatha Baptist Church in Okinawa City, Okinawa.  We have been unsuccessful to get contact, but will continue trying by email and phone.

Ron White with Tri-City Baptist Church in Independence MO writes the following:

"Missionaries, Dan and Terri Gardner.  They have a church, a camp, and a house.  Missionaries Dan Gardner, Jr and Heidi.  they have a house and also share the camp and church building with his parents.  Missionaries Matt and Sachiko Sanders.  They have a home and a church building.  Maranatha Baptist Church and all their missionaries, workers, members, school, students and staff.  National pastors Fujino and family, Saito and family, and several others.


The same typhoon is heading on to Mainland Japan where I know several missionaries and many national pastors, workers, and believers."

David Harris of BIMI is attempting to help ORH with information.  His help in the last disaster in Japan was invaluable.

Thank you so much for the immediate information to begin the relief efforts.  Your help is always essential to proper evaluation.  You are God's blessing to ORH.

Pray for the contacts that will be made, so that ORH can assess the opportunity to minister to the saved and the lost.  This is another open door of opportunity to behave like our savior as He helped the suffering while in His earthly ministry.

Pray that the contacts are safe and ready to minister to the people around them.

At this time, do not send money.  When ORH is certain of a proper course of action we will request help. 
At this time, patiently wait with ORH for information that leads us to where God is wanting us to work.

God bless,
Jan Milton

Philippine Typhoon - Post 33


Philippine Typhoon

Saturday, July 5, 2014

Dear Friends,

Dan Cadavos and his great Church, Calvary Baptist in Mindanao, will be making another trip into Leyte to help rebuild two more churches which are in very desperate need.  Please pray for them as they make this trip.  ORH has committed another $2500.00, but we need about $4800.00 total to help these two churches with substantial rebuilding.

Please read Dan and Edna's latest communication to ORH.

“There will be soon another $2,500 being sent from ORH as Jan Milton has informed us.  We sent 3 of our men back to Leyte the other day to continue work in two churches with ministries the Lord has impressed upon our hearts.  There are good men, pastors, working in those churches, basically abandoned by their own "association" as they accepted help from us back in January.  They are totally trusting the Lord to meet their needs by faith....  We want to ok our men on the scene that its ok to go ahead and order 350 bags of cement and other needed supplies.”

We cannot let these brothers in Christ down.  If you can help, please take an offering to continue the rebuilding of churches.  To date, Operation Renewed Hope has worked with more than 30 churches helping them to rebuild. 

Dan Cadavos, Rick Martin, and Jim Latzko have been working feverishly to reestablish individuals, communities and a great number of Churches.  It has been the privilege of ORH to work through these marvelous people for the Filipinos.

If you have any extra funds for the work in the Philippines.  We will need just a few more offerings for the summer.  Pray about what you could do.

Please, consider this “open door”, and let’s not hesitate to go to the harvest.

God bless all who try to help us with the suffering of others and the salvation of their souls.

Thank God for America and its continuing outreach around the world.

Philippine Typhoon - Post 32


Philippine Typhoon Update
Tuesday May 20, 2014

Dear Friends,

Below is another great report from Dan and Edna Cadavos.  These two wonderful people and their church Mt Calvary in Mindanao have worked tirelessly to make certain that the work to help the people, churches, and villages continues.  If you look, you will see that the damage from months ago is still very evident.  There is still much work to do.  Pray that Dan and Edna will be able to continue this great effort.

"Hi Jan,  Dan wrote: "We had a wonderful update from Dan yesterday, with his team still in Dinagat Island. The wife of one of the sons of that cult group accepted Christ as her savior and promised to be in services on Sunday! This is a VERY big deal. Also her and her husband allowed the men to use a lot of their wood (fallen trees) for the repair work that our team is doing (on 3 different churches). Pray for the husband as well, as he is considering and listening to the Gospel. He did ask Dan to "pray" for them.

This afternoon he is leaving for Leyte with 9 of the 12 men to finish some work they began last Jan-Feb, then they will return to Dinagat Island and also a work in Surigao that we are assisting with as well. Tuesday-Thursday of next week they have a schedule set up to preach in 3 villages on Dinagat Island. This is seldom heard of since the cult group controls everything on that island. God is doing a marvelous work there with amazing opportunities. A good number have been saved already.

Our men have been working over-time and Dan is very happy with them. Of course always little challenges here and there but overall he is pleased with their work and more importantly their spiritual growth, learning to witness and learning to work in unity for the glory of God.

Thanks all for your prayers! Jan Milton Jared Baldwin Bob Whitney Jerry WraggPaul Edward Guiliano Cadavos, Joseph Cadavos, Anna Rose Cadavos, Asenath Cadavos"

Pastor Dan is working in several churches in this area of Leyte. A good number of folks have come to Christ and the local pastors encouraged. Interestingly this is where Gen.MacArthur landed in WWII and the first place the American flag was raised again since lowering in Bataan, so a very significant and a strategic area to retake the Philippines from the Japanese. So besides the church work, the team is cleaning up the WWII Monument area as a testimony to the local gov't there and as a US Citizen Dan plans on raising up the first American Flag since Typhoon Yolanda that I am sending to him today. Will get a pic of that up once it reaches them."

Dan spoke of a young boy who helped was dishes for his team as they worked.

"...and he is doing his part (washing the team's dishes) to assist in the team effort for Operation Renewed Hope in Dinagat Island with the team from Mt Calvary Casisang under Pastor Dan Cadavos. - Jan Milton"

They are doing their best to help the people and give the gospel.  Please pray they will be successful.

If you have any extra funds for the work in the Philippines.  We will need just a few more offerings for the summer.  Pray about what you could do.

Please, consider this “open door”, and let’s not hesitate to go to the harvest.

7 year old boy needs surgery - POST 5


Saturday May 3, 2014

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, ORH received this wonderful email from Dr. Elizabeth Drum.

“Ethan is in the recovery room, all is well. More later.”

Ethan’s surgery is completed, and he is doing well.  I know his mother and father received this information with great joy.

Our God has done great things; He is to be praised.  Thank God for His ability to bring to exact times and places people to be His “hands” on earth.  This is the glory of our good and gracious God who wishes all men to be saved; He must be praised.

Stephen Johanitan, Ethan's father, wrote the following from the family.

“Hello to all,   Truly God is great.  We are so thankful for His grace and your prayers through this time of need.  Ethan's surgery went well and he is recovering at the guest house.  He has to go back in seven days for a check-up.  Please continue to pray for him as he recovers.

Our family would like to thank all of you for allowing God to use you to show us how BIG He is.  Thank you for being a blessing to us.  We thank God, through our Lord Jesus Christ for all of you; for your prayers,love and support.  Forever grateful,  Stephen, Lesha, Ethan & Elizabeth”

Operation Renewed Hope wants to thank the good and kind people at LEAP Foundation for the doctors and surgical staff.  Continue to pray for the others who will receive surgery this weekend through this good people.

Dr. Elizabeth Drum is our very great blessing.  Thank you so much Dr. Drum and her husband Marc.

7 year old boy needs surgery - Post 4


Thursday May 1, 2014

Dear Friends,

Please read this report from Stephen and Ethan who are in Haiti waiting for Ethan's surgery.  I think it will be a great blessing for your church to hear this testimony.

"Ethan is going to see the doctors from LEAP today at 5pm.  I suppose we will know then which day he will have surgery. We are doing well and he seems to be healthy. Praise God!  It is amazing how The Lord continues to take care of us.

The guest house we're at is called My Father's Guest House. Through U. S. sponsors they care for 17 girls in an orphanage. We were able to visit the girls home and a private Christian school which this guest house is apart off. I was able to help out with a little work around the guest house for which I was just grateful that I finally got something to do. 

Our first night at the guest house was spent with a woman's group from North Carolina. They left early the next morning. However, the most amazing thing happened that night. One of the ladies from the group was looking for a child who was going to have surgery and her entire time here did not find anyone, until she found Ethan and heard his story. She gave him a stuffed lion which belonged to her sixteen year old son who died from cancer. She also gave him a book entitled 'How Big is God'. The Lord has been soooo good to us through out this entire trip.  We are so thankful for everyone he has used along the way to show us truly how BIG!!! He is. Thanks be to God through our Lord Jesus Christ.   In Haiti, Stephen and Ethan"

Please continue to pray for Ethan as the doctors work in his behalf.  Pray they will be able to help him.

God is so powerful, and His goodness is endures.
