Pastor Trerice and the congregation of West Rome Baptist Church, Manitou Beach, MI, sent this report from New York where he is working with Pastor Nate Watkins. Pastor Trerice contacted Operation Renewed Hope asking for an assignment for his church. We were thankful for his request because Pastor Watkins had a need for the people in the community where he ministers.
The Russian Jewish community around Pastor Watkins is in great need. This is a real opportunity for us to show the love and compassion of Christ.
"We are rebuilding basements of three Russian Jewish condos. Pastor Nate has been seeking an open door to this community. This has done it. At first they wanted to know what we wanted from them. Very skeptical that Christians would help for free. Now they hug us, kiss us, and buy us lunch. The one Messianic believer here is overjoyed. It is our prayer that Pastor Nate and Jane will be able to see some of them come to Christ. Language is a barrier, but the believer translates. We have also cleaned out a house that was completely ruined. We expect to do more of that today. Christ is being glorified. We also testified and preached at Pastor Nate's church with Liberians. It was a great time of honoring our Lord."
