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,
Jan Milton

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,

Nepal and Texas Update

Nepal / Texas Update

Friday, May 29, 2015

Dear Friends,

ORH IS STILL SEEKING INFORMATION FOR THE FLOODS IN TEXAS.  ANY PERSON, ORGANIZATION, OR CHURCH THAT YOU KNOW NEEDS HELP, PLEASE, CONTACT ORH IMMEDIATELY WITH INFORMATION.  PASTOR ALAN JENKINS IS SPEAKING WITH TWO CHURCHES ABOUT GOING TO THE HELP OF THE PEOPLE.  PRAY THIS WILL BE A POSSIBILITY.  ORH HAS COMMITTED $1000.00 FOR THE WORK TO BEGIN.

This is the most recent report from Pastor Athem Chothe.  He and his brethren in India have proven to be a wonderful blessing to the people of Nepal.  With their efforts and James Tamang’s approximately 400 shelters will be provided through the local churches in Nepal.  This will help their ministry presence greatly in a creative entry country.  Please read Pastor Athem’s Plan B with its costs.
               
“Dear uncle Jan & uncle Jim,   The upcoming Plan B1, B2 & B3 will be the last action plans for the Nepal earthquake.  The dates are beginning from 3rd June to 13 June.
Plan B1 is to distribute 250 bundles of iron roofing sheets to 200 houses. The cost Plan B1 is $11526.63.  The Plan B2 is to provide cooking utensils to already identified 250 houses in four villages.  The estimated cost is $ 7258.06.  The Plan B3 is to build Three churches and the estimated cost for the iron sheets for all the three churches is $3774.19.  The total cost of this project is $22558.88
     After the Plan B1,B2, B3 are done by 13th of June, we will not be continuing the reconstruction works but we shall be revisiting for the purpose of Gospel preaching. If John Paul is planning on coming in July, I will take him to the villages for health check ups and Gospel preaching.
     Three souls are already saved in Nepane Village of Sindhupalchowk. Praise the Lord. Please continue to pray for us as usual and the Lord is providing all these need. With the $7000 coming in from the ORH, the intended budget is met. Thank you so much for all the helps.  In His Service,  Athem & Indu Khiang Chothe”

James Tamang has also sent us a plan with the churches he works with in Nepal.  This is a wonderful blessing to work with The Tamangs and Pastor Athem.

“Dear Brother Jan Milton,  It is always good to hear encouraging words from you.  Thank you for calling.  I was not sure if you have been back or not.   I am glad that you are back.  Thank you for your interest in the lives of people in Nepal.   Here are some option we have:
Believers in our area from our church:  (They have been living in rented rooms in Kathmandu but many buildings are what the government categorized as red flag zone and the landlords have asked them to vacate) and now because of that some are living in a tent.  
Details:  Size:  10'x12' strong framed building;  Cost:  about $250 per shelter;  Numbers:  for now 6-7 buildings(shelter); Total Cost:  $1750 for shelters and $500 for renting land, few rest room facilities, and well.   Pictures are attached of two options somewhere under $100 per shelter excluding transportation cost to take it to the needed villages.
Relief for villagers
Option 1:  Cost: about $100 per shelter; Numbers:  60-70 families; Area coverage:  about 10'x28' rectangle shaped.  Some wood, bamboo, can be used;  Total cost:  $7000
Option 2:  Cost: about $100 per shelter; Numbers: we have already ordered 20 need another about 50;  Area coverage: 10'x12';  Total cost:  $7000
     We have already ordered 20 set of semi shelter and is allocated already when it is ready for us to pick them up.  It cost us $2000 without transportation.   However we will use Option 1 for our ministry use because we will have to transport only the metal sheet roofs and tools to fix and we do not have to bend and pipes prior to taking the shelter set to the village.  Villagers can also work whereas Option 1 less of the villager's involvement is seen.”

ORH has just sent $5000.00 to help James Tamang with his plans to build shelters, and $7000.00 to sponsor Pastor Athem’s Plan B.  We are hoping that we will be able to do more.  We are thankful that people who are usually unaware of the gospel are seeing and hearing it through the efforts of these good people.  Please pray for their strength and safety.

I want to thank all those who have given to the Nepal Relief ministry.  Pastor Larry Gilaspy of Fairbanks Missionary Baptist Church, ORH wishes to thank you for your contribution.  Pastor Wright of Emmanuel Independent Baptist Church, Winchester, VA and Anchor Baptist Church, Pastor Carl Wood, Little River, SC, ORH thanks you so much for your generosity.

AGAIN, ORH IS SEEKING HELP IN TEXAS.  ANYONE HAVING CONTACT WITH PEOPLE IN THE FLOOD ZONE OR IN NEED AS A RESULT OF THE FLOOD, PLEASE, CONTACT ORH IMMEDIATELY.

God bless,

Nepal Update Nepane Village Housing

Saturday, May 15, 2015

Dear Friends,

Pastor Athem and his crew of Indian brothers in Christ sent this report.

     “We arrived at the Sanusirubari, Nepane village on 10th May and almost immediately we started the constructions. We constructed just one house that day and heavy rain came to discourage us. But the Lord is good and some of our friends stayed back while some of us returned to Kathmandu for further preparations and collection of materials. We distributed 10 pieces of iron sheets to 125 houses in this village. They were covering their houses with the sheets with many holes. When the rain came, some of our friends witness that the roofs of the old sheets were leaking. By next day, the villagers collected the sheets and cover their own bamboo houses. We could not help them all but they were already ready before we arrive. Therefore, the construction went really very fast. However, we built five houses in two days. One of them was for the future pastor of the area.
     The villagers were very appreciative and some of them are now saying that they are going to come to the church there. The house church itself was totally destroyed and we reconstructed the house and we hold two nights there. Due to network problem, I could not send more pictures. Please try to download some from the FB of our friends. From tomorrow we are starting the eight families of Iswor members at Bhaktapur. We need at least $3131.16 for the Bhaktapur 8 families. Besides, two more pastors and the church members are in need of helps due to fresh earthquake yesterday.
     A man by the name Harman Tamang is the future leader/Pastor of the Nepane village. I offered him to come for the BSE which is starting on 15th May at Siliguri. He agreed to do so and I am taking him with me to Siliguri. We constructed a house for his wife and children in a very safe place.I will try to send you more pictures as the internet is getting little bit faster now.
     I have many stories and testimonies to share. I will do so little by little with the pictures.
Thank you.  Athem & Indu Khiang Chothe”

Pastor Athem left Nepal for home about 20 hours ago.  I received a phone call when he stopped on his journey to rest.  Continue to pray for him; he needs rest.

ORH will be conducting an evangelistic medical clinic in Uganda with missionary Keith Stensaas.  Pray we will be successful in reaching the lost of Uganda.  Pray for the safety of the medical team.

The houses constructed are going to be a help to the churches and community families.  The message of Christ is being adorned beautifully by the hands of our brother’s good works.

God bless,

Jan Milton

Nepal Update

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Dear Friends.

The shelter building continues even though there has been more earthquake activity.  Pastor Athem and his team with Jason Woon were working when the second major quake hit.  James Tamang and his people are also busy building shelters.

The monsoon season is approaching quickly.  We must get these people in a shelter, if possible.  Our missionaries are working hard to make this happen.  Please pray for them as they labor.

James Tamang wrote us the following last night.

     “Brother Milton, Again you amazed me by calling me not long after the earthquake and asking me if we were doing well.  Thank you very much for your care and keeping up with the missionaries here in Nepal.  Brother Woon lives within 1 mile of our home.  We are good friends.  I knew he was helping to build homes. Glad to hear that Doctors have arrived.  I understand they will be here for two weeks.
     ….We also distributed 20 bags of food and few bags of cloths and couple bags of blanket. Thank you for your prayer and support.
     Near future we will be going to a village and help build a tin roof house for a family.  We have already bought the materials and it is on its way to destination.  It is the matter of being there and helping them to build.  Please do pray so we can help build this shelter for them soon. JT”

Please continue to pray for the people of Nepal.  Much is left to do by our missionaries as they help the people in the communities around the churches.  The spiritual openings both now and in the future will be great, if we can maintain this work.

We thank God for prayer answered concerning a medical team out of India.  I received this from Dr. John Paul Moses.

“Uncle Jan, looks like God just answered my prayer.. One of my class mates who is experienced in conducting normal deliveries has come forward.. He is a doctor.. Tomorrow he will be applying for a permission.. Pray that they would let him come.. Since the airport is shut down, we may have to travel by road.. Please pray that we will be able to arrange for a vehicle.. Will keep u updated.. Love you uncle Jan.. Am amazed how God is putting people together.. John”

God is answering the prayers of faithful Indian Christians dedicated to the spread of the Gospel.  Their medial work will have great opportunity for the Gospel.

We want to thank you Byrch Griffin, L.C. Klopfenstein, and Claralee Anderson.   Lighthouse Baptist in Slidell,thank you.  This church was damaged in Hurricane, “Katrina.”  Denny Wiinborn is the pastor and a faithful supporter of ORH.   Grace Baptist of Landrum, SC also gave.  Maranatha Baptist of Grayslake, IL has always stepped up to help ORH when working with disaster relief.

Please pray!

God bless,

Jan Milton
