Oklahoma City Tornado Post 3


Oklahoma City Tornado

Friday May 24, 2013

Dear Friends

Please read these messages. They are great blessings.

Moore Baptist Temple, Moore, OK Pastor Sven Larson

“Bro Milton,
            Here are some others that need help
            I have a mother and daughter that live together and lost everything, one is on oxygen, the mother is 94. They rode out the tornado in the bathtub. They are on social security, and need help with deductibles, clothes, housing, and may not rebuild because of the difficulty involved and health.
            Another family has 6 children, the children faithfully ride the bus to church. Their mom worked in the hospital when the wall fell in on her and broke her arm. Her car was blown into the hospital lobby, her home is without power.
            Another family lost their trailer, they dont have much, and have financial needs. They are unsaved.
            There are so many more, and I am hearing more situations daily.
            Anything you do for them, I pray the Lord would use it greatly in their lives.  Sincerely, Sven Larson Moore Baptist Temple”

Pastor Larson wrote this note to explain further his work with the people in the disaster zone.

“I talked to a family tonight who lost their home and possessions and car, and they had no homeowners insurance. They have 2 children. He works at Lowes, she makes $250 a week. I gave them $400 and she cried because her daughters graduation dress and shoes were blown away and now she get her a new grad dress.”

On Tuesday of next week, ORH hopes to send money to help this brother.

Suburban Baptist Church, Moore, OK, Pastor Ron Lindsey

"Dear Bro Jan Milton,
            Thank you for your kindness. We are requesting $10,000.00 to help our church families who were devastated during the tornado.
            Our update is now that seven families lost their homes. The one couple that was unaccounted for has been found and they are safe, praise the Lord. We are also setting up a relief center and a feeding center at our church. We have all of the volunteers that we need at this present time.
            If you can help, please send your donation by check through regular mail,  Pastor Ron Lindsey”

Operation Renewed Hope has sent the initial check of $3000.00 to Pastor Lindsey. We are thankful that the family that had not been found has been discovered and is safe.

Beth Haven Baptist Church, OKC, OK Pastor Rick Carter.

“Hello Jan
            Pastor wanted me to email you and thank you for what you have done already. We use the money that you gave for gloves, trash bags, mask. We are in a desperate need for a large order of Ice and he said anything that you could send would be greatly appreciated.
            Thank you so much”

Operation Renewed Hope has sent initially $1500.00 to this church. Yesterday, we sent another $1000.00. Pray that all will go well for Pastor Carter and his church as they give out the needed items to hundreds of people in the disaster zone.

Pray for these churches that are ministering to the needs of those in the communities with no expectations of return. They are truly demonstrating the compassion and love of Christ to their community. They are establishing disaster centers for people to which people in the public may come to get the help they need. The greatness of this is that when all the relief agencies are gone these men and churches will still be there to help.

If you wish to donate by check, please, send the check to Operation Renewed Hope, PO Box 43242, Fayetteville, NC 28309. Mark the check for "Domestic Relief."

If you wish to donate by debit or credit card, please, go to www.operationrenewedhope.org and choose Network for Good.

You may go to www.orhnews.blogspot.com to keep up with the efforts.

I found his web once but couldn't this time We met one of your missionaries years ago.We see how the news ignores many needs. Tell him he has folk in Pa who prayed for them.
