"Sandy" Relief Post 12

"Sandy" Relief

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Dear Friends,

These are some reports that we have received form the pastors in the "Sandy" impact area.

Pastor Jim Bickel
Bethel Baptist Fellowship
Brooklyn, NY 11235


Pastor Bickel said that he was thankful for those teams of people who have been helping to restore his facilities so they can have church services. However, He now has a need for the families in his church.

"We have two families in our English-speaking congregation here at Bethel that lived in a basement apartment and lost everything. We also have two families in our Russian-language congregation who also lost all their possessions."

At this time, ORH would like to send each of those families at least $500.00. It would be better, if we could help them with at least $1000.00 each. They have not asked ORH for anything. If your church could raise at least $500.00 for a family, please contact ORH as soon as possible.

Pastor Kent Sager
Grace Baptist Church
Freeport, NY 11520


Pastor Sager told me this morning that once again Valley Forge Baptist Temple, Collegeville, PA, Pastor Scott Wendal, has come to help. A father and son from the church are with Pastor Sager today attempting to help him with his home which had was flooded by more than 5 ft of water. God bless this wonderful congregation and pastor for helping Pastor Sager.

Two other churches are attempting to go to help him rebuild the inside of his house.

Pastor John Trerice
West Rome Baptist Church
Manitou Beach, MI 49253-9714

Pastor Bob Harrison, Jr.
Fellowship Baptist Church
Baden, PA

These are good churches trying to adjust schedules, prepare people, make plans, and then carry-out a mission to help. Please pray for them that all the details will work so that they can help Pastor Sager.

Pray for Pastor Sager that he will get the money necessary to buy the materials to restore his home. Currently, the insurance companies are overwhelmed with requests. FEMA may not be able to help Pastor Sager in the latest updates. He may have to reapply for any help from FEMA.

Greg Berkey
Auto Racing Outreach
Claremont, NC


Greg will be taking his trailer and truck to New York to help Matt Recker. He is attempting to fill his racing trailer with items to minister to Far Rockaway, NY where Pastor Recker has been working to help the victims of "Sandy." Operation Renewed Hope would like to help with this effort to help the people in this area which was hit so hard. It has been a pleasure speak with Greg and his wife.
