These are some
reports that we have received form the pastors in the "Sandy" impact
Pastor Jim Bickel
Bethel Baptist Fellowship
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."
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
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
Two other churches are attempting to go to help him rebuild the inside
of his house.
Pastor John Trerice
West Rome Baptist Church
Beach, MI 49253-9714
Pastor Bob Harrison, Jr.
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
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.
Auto Racing Outreach
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.
