Peru Follow-up Manu Region


Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Dear Friends,

Operation Renewed Hope conducted an evangelistic medical clinic in Patria / Pillcopata region of the Manu jungle area of Peru 2 years ago.  In the 4 days of clinic, 1385 patients were treated and many came to Christ.  Since that clinic, Operation Renewed Hope has been sending money to missionary Buddy Fitzgerald to help finance the follow-up work in the Patria / Pillcopata region through Alex and Flor Herrera.  Alex and Flor conducted the evangelism during the clinic.

Buddy sent ORH their most recent report about the continued work to follow-up the clinic.  Please, read this understanding that they only speak Spanish. 

“May repo
Dear brothers. Greetings from Pillcopata-Peru; and that the grace of God and the love of our Lord be with each of you. I am pleased to address you through this letter, to inform them (you) how God is glorified in this region of Peru. First we want to thank you for your prayers, because they help and encourage us to continue working in God's work and also help us to grow as a family. This month dear brothers has been a month of many tests for both my family and brothers; but thank God my wife is much better in her pregnancy, of course that has limited him (her) to perform some activities for the benefit of the church, we also had the crash of the daughter of our brothers Ruben and Elizabeth; which the child of 1 year and 6 months his face burned, and now she is recovering. We are also going through a case of restoration, as a brother has committed a public sin, and we are trying to arrange his life brother and his relationship with God; dear brothers so ask your prayers; the brother's name is John.

Report of Activity
Services – 5; Children’s Meetings – 5; Brochures (tracts) Distributed – 92; Evangelized with Gospel – 29; Home Worship – 4 services; Brothers Advised – 10; Brothers Visited – 21; People Advised – 6; Converted – 1

Dear brothers, despite all the evidence of this month, the church of God goes ahead; and this makes us also understand that the enemy is not happy with what God is doing in this region. Dear brothers once again ask your prayers for God to provide me with good wisdom to lead my family and brothers.

With all this I say goodbye dear brothers, thanking you for your prayers and financial support, which is a blessing to this ministry. Sincerely missionary family Herrera.”

Please pray for Alex and Flor.  They are in a difficult jungle world.  There are many people in the region without spiritual help through a Bible-believing church.  Alex and Flor are working hard holding services and building a work.

If you would like to help with their support of $300.00 per month, ORH would be grateful.  We send the follow-up money strictly by faith the it will be available.

Nepal Update and Peru Medical Team

Friday, July 17, 2015

Dear Friends,

Please read the most recent information from the work of Pastor Athem and churches in India in Nepal.  ORH hopes this is a blessing as you read of the good work.

“Dear Uncle Jan & ORH, 13/07/2015  Jai Mashi from India and Nepal.
 
     This is a short report/update about the works done in Nepal for the recent earthquake victims. This updates are mainly the latest works which we called it PLAN =C & D. A lot have been done yet there are still lots to be done.

     We just came back from Kathmandu on 11th July. Due to rain we could not go to the villages where we sent the materials for 75 houses. So far we were able to provide relief aids to 450 household and the following items have been distributed: such as, rice, cooking utensils, roofing iron sheets, blankets, medical aids, etc.

     The three main areas of our works, where we are building three churches are: Nepane Sanusirubari village of Dolakha District, Keilashwore village in Dholakha District and a village in Dhanding. At the time of earthquake, there were presence of 5/6 Christian houses in each of these villages but after we brought the aids, the villagers (Hindus) are now started coming to church and we now have some problems which I called it good problems. The good problems are, there was not enough rooms/place for the people to sit and listen to the preaching of the Gospel by the local Christians. The Hindu people gave lands to local Christians to construct a house for worship. Therefore, we decided to construct a church building with iron bars and steel roofing in the areas where the Hindu leaders had donated for construction of church. The church building constructions are going on in three areas mentioned above. The building/houses are 25 feet wide and 30 feet length. We could not finish the construction last weekend and we have given the local leaders the responsibilities of overseeing the constructions and to complete in next two weeks which will be in first week of August 2015. If possible please send someone to dedicate these houses to be used for worship.

     Thank you very much for your supports in prayers and finance. Uncle Jim is coordinating with the ministry called Bearing Precious Seed to send Gospel tracts and Gospel of John & Romans in next six weeks. We will be sending them to Nepal particularly too those earthquake victims and villages. So far about 20 people have come to the Lord in Nepane village. We hope and pray that the Lord will allow us to see hundreds and thousands of souls to be saved in those villages.   In His Service,   Pastor Athem K. Chothe   Siliguri, India”

Pray for these good works.  We are thankful for the fruit and the response of the people.  Pastor Athem has been faithful to help the villages, and God is working through these great efforts.

Pray about the rains.  They are serious when trying to build and get people out of the weather conditions.

We have more work on-going and will attempt to inform you soon of two church’s VBS programs working to help with the Nepalese children in the earthquake.

Please pray for our Peru Medical Team leaving on Saturday, July 18, to work with Buddy and Loren Fitzgerald in the Puerto Maldonado area of Peru.

God bless,

2015 Teen Medical Boot Camp

Monday, July 6, 2015

Dear Friends,

2015 Medical Boot Camp a Success

In an effort to recruit youth for medical missions, Operation Renewed Hope conducts boot camps for young people 14 to 19 years of age.  Because our youth are in such a soft and idle condition most of the time, it is necessary to inject hardness into their lives through these boot camps. 

We are so thankful that Kings Mills Baptist Church in Kings Mills, OH was willing to let their teens experience the boot camp atmosphere in preparation for the teens going to the jungle of Peru outside the town of Puerto Maldonado.  The clinic will be July 18, 2015.   Missionary Buddy Fitzgerald with his wife Loren will be hosts for this evangelistic effort.

The boot camp was held on a property which was designed for testing physical strength and development leaders, Kings Domain, just outside of Cincinnati, OH.  The camp activities offer many building opportunities for the teens.  All boot camp challenges are for building the teens spiritually, physically, and in respect for those they will help in the coming medical clinic.

Activities include camp site preparation, establishing latrines, establishing cook site fires, fire building, Dutch-oven cooking, Meals Ready to Eat preparation, and wilderness exposure to toughen the mind of the young person.  The young person is introduced to skills necessary to feed, provide sanitation, and provide housing in a difficult situation, as others have to do each day around the world.

As part of the daily schedule, physical problems are presented creating mental, spiritual, and physical challenges requiring critical thinking development.  Survival course challenges present the teen with the need to develop stamina, courage, and unity of spirit with others. Daily physical training demonstrates to the teen that he is strong and capable of achieving what is thought to be very hard as he yields to Christ.

Medical training includes Red Cross certification for first aid and CPR; Dental training for assisting a dentist; basic stitching, and Optometry training to assist the optometrist.  The teen will prepare and serve alongside medical professionals in the medical clinic.

Safety is always a deep concern for teens traveling with our medical teams.  Each day the living culture of those in difficult parts of the world are presented along with plans to relieve the safety issues arising from such life requirements.

Always, the most important development comes through spiritual training.  There is a constant message of “Your life is not yours, but it is Christ living in you.”  As the week progresses and the challenges mount this message becomes real in the hearts of the teens.  The closing “Dog Tag Presentation” service overwhelmingly requires the young person to say, “I live, yet not I, it is Christ that lives in me.”  Literally, I am dead to self and alive in Christ.

The week is full; the benefits are manifold; and the end result is an experience in some part of the world giving the gospel through a medical clinic in which the youth participate.

Churches are welcome to discuss a boot camp for their teens.

God Bless,

Jan Milton

Nepal Update - Pastor Athem Team

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Dear Friends,

Pastor Athem and his faithful group of Indian believers are still very involved in the work of the Lord in Nepal.  This is his latest report from the work there.  Please read it and pray for his team and the people to whom they will minister.

“Dear uncle Jan,  I am in Kathmandu since 5 days. We reached as many as 340 houses with CGI roofing iron sheets of 250 bundles, 340 bags rice of 35 kgs each, 1 cooking pot each and 1 frying pan each were given to 340 households. Three churches of iron bars and CGI roofing sheets have been ordered, this will be done in three weeks from now. I hope to receive the funds asap so that the cost will be paid soon. Thank you also for the support. Yesterday we went to 240 km and preached the Gospel both in the morning and evening.  In His Service, Athem”

ORH thanks all who have participated in the Nepal work.  Continue to pray; this is a great open door to a very great nation of people.  We must continue our efforts to Nepal with the gospel.

God bless,

VMA India Leper Medical Clinic


Tuesday, June 15, 2015

Dear Friends,

As you know, Dr. John Paul Moses has accepted the mission as a “Village Medical Assistant” with Operation Renewed Hope.  He conducts medical clinics in India to give the Gospel.  He is supported in the efforts by his family members who do the spiritual work with those in the clinic.  Please read his latest communication.

“Dear Uncle Jan and Jim,   I hope all is well with you both... As I had mentioned, we were able to visit the leper colony where we have been ministering...! The people here have been affected due to the heat wave which swept our country a few days ago and help them with some medical supplies... Please follow the attached pictures in my following emails.. As per our notice in the colony around three people had just died. In the supplies which we distributed for over a hundred adults and several children, contained wound dressing and bandage supplies, oral rehydration sachets- WHO formulation, pain and fever medicine, multi-vitamins and minerals and other relevant medications pertaining to their health conditions... Would you believe it if I said that It was amazing to notice how God sent rain right after two days of this camp, It is a relief for sure, beyond comprehension, especially for these destitute s'..
     These people's livelihood solely depends upon begging, impossible to find jobs, the heat had affected them lots.  When we arrived we faced the brunt of the adverse weather too... My mother Jasmine and Brother Titus who has been studying in the bible college along with two other believers and the local Pastor were able to minister to them with the Gospel.
     This is our second camp here and we wish to stabilise this area with the medical ministry and the Gospel further providing with discipleship, I am thankful to vision 2020, and ORH for being a part of this medical ministry.. Uncle Jim, We need to supply them with truth and freedom bible education, especially to the youth, and nurture them in these very days, because there are several who are interested to know more and be involved in the evangelism in the days to come there by potential labourers for Christ...We will be going again, depending upon the resources...This is something and I know that God is working....There is so much to do and please continue to pray for us and my family...Love and regards,  Yours faithfully in Christ, JP”

Please pray that the funds will always be available to keep this young man going with the work of the medical clinics in the villages of India.  ORH will be sending Dr. John Paul $250 for supplies, $100 for transportation costs, $50 for evangelist cost, and $100 personal support for Dr. John Paul.

Please pray for the team’s safety.  The travel conditions are very difficult at times.  The people whom they impact can be volatile about the teachings of Christ.  Dr. John Paul and his family have faced unbelievable persecution at times.

Thank you for helping us to spread the Word of God by the medical clinics ORH conducts or sponsors.

God bless,

Nepal Update - James and Holly Tamang


Nepal Update – James and Holly Tamang Report

Monday June 15, 2015

Dear Friends,

ORH just finished a major boot camp for teens on their way to Peru for a medical team.  It was great!  God opened all our hearts to His will, and the Spirit of God was powerful through the Word.  The teens were active in training from 6 am each morning until 10 pm each night.  There was Bible, medical, cultural, and survival training each day.  It was very exhausting, especially the physical training; but what a blessing.  Thanks to Kings Mills Baptist Church for this great opportunity to take their teens and adults on a great mission to Peru in July.

Although this was wonderful, ORH is behind with updates from Nepal.  Please read this update from James Tamang about his continuing efforts.  Shortly, we will be getting out other updates from our good friends.

“Brother Milton,  Hope and pray all is with you and your ministries.  I just want to give you a quick update of what we have been doing in regarding Shelter for Earthquake Relief.   As of yesterday Jun 9th we were able to place 8 tin roof shelter for private Christian academy and one for a needy tailor in his village.  Their rented facilities were all demolished by an Earthquake which caused them to move out and rent an empty lot to teach with tents over their head.  Now they have at least tin roof shelter to teach under.  Thank you very much.  As we continue to minister I will be updating you as much as possible.  Thank you for your continual prayer and faithfulness during the time of our needs here in Nepal.   Through Christ alone,  James Tamang”

Pray for James and Holly.  They are doing a great job.’

Thanks so much to Pleasant Grove Bible Church for their gracious gift.   There are many who have donated privately and ORH says thank you for such an out-pouring of grace.  With these partners, Operation Renewed Hope is able to benefit families who are receiving shelter from the weather conditions because of missionaries like James and Holly.

God bless,

Jan Milton
