Message from Missionary Charles Strong - Great blessings

Message from Missionary Charles Strong

Thursday, May 8, 2013

Dear Friends,
 
For several years Operation Renewed Hope has been making shipments of Hospital equipment, supplies, and furniture to the border hospitals of Mexico. ORH has not only shipped to these hospitals, but we have conducted evangelistic medical clinics.

Our missionary contact, Charles Strong, has been our source of reaching hundreds with the gospel message and creating church opportunities for those who accept Christ. Brother Strong writes the following concerning the April 2013 53 ft. trailer shipment we sent to his ministry in Mexico.

"Dear Bro. Jan,
I’m writing to say many thanks for your great help to the Mexican people, who are in need of all the medical equipment and supplies you send to me; and I pass it all over to Rio Bravo, Tamaulipas, Mexico, to an organization, called in English, Arranging Help for the Development of the Whole Family...., but this blessing doesn't stop here, as you know I'm a missionary here in Mexico and have been for 42 years, and we are in the process of building a new Church here in Rio Bravo, and last month we bought land to build the church on. We had 8 big trees and the city came and cut them down, dug up the roots. Also Mrs. Trevino (lady receiving donations from Brother Strong for the hospitals) and her husband own a big equipment company, and they said they would level the ground , fill in with dirt where needed at no cost to us, so you see, what you are doing, Brother Jan, I want to thank you so very much for what Operation Renewed Hope is doing for us here….May God richly bless you in all your work.”

Attached are two photos of a man who was badly burned and received help at the hospitals that receive our shipments. In one of shipments was an electric wheel chair. He was given this chair because of the terrible burns to his legs. The attachment is not pretty. If you are easily upset, please make sure you are prepared for what you will see. People need our help, and you can make it happen.

Pray for our continued ability to ship. Because of the in-country movement from North Carolina to Mexico, we had to pay for the trucking. We have more equipment and supplies, but we do not have the money to ship it at this time.

We have been given a Siemens X-ray machine in Missouri, but we cannot ship it to Brother Strong because we have exhausted our shipping funds. Pray we can move this equipment to help Brother Strong’s ministry.

If you would like to help us with the next shipment to Mexico please send a donation to Operation Renewed Hope, PO Box 43242, Fayetteville, NC 28309.

You can use a credit card by going to our web site, www.operationrenewedhope.org, and choose Network for Good.

Please pray for Operation Renewed Hope.

Jan Milton
