The first doctor from ORH will reach the Philippines on Wednesday, November 20, 2013.
Dr. Greg Waller will be working with Eric and Dan on the Island of Panay. We have several medical professionals who have volunteered and ORH is attempting to place each of them at the right time and place for maximum effort.
Dr. Waller is an extremely gifted physician with knowledge of tropical medicine after many years in Guyana, South America as a missionary doctor. He also has many years of travel to many nations as a medical missionary, and leads his own medical mission. His love for people being saved, the preaching of the gospel, and the establishing of believers in churches makes him both doctor and missionary.
We are going to purchase at least $1000.00 of medicines for him. His air tickets were about $1400.00 all the way to Iloilo City, Panay.
We will post you as other professionals follow his lead and help the people of the Philippines.
Operation Renewed Hope wants to rebuild a lost or badly damaged economy to help the church. Therefore, we have hired our first 5 men out of a church to help work in the community around their church. In each village, where a church exists, ORH hopes to hire at least five men from the church to go through the neighborhood helping the locals clean their property, dry in damaged buildings, and eventually repair homes.
Why do we do this?
The church can never be any more stable than the people who attend. If the church people have no work, the overall ministry of the church is weak and suffers. The church people are willing to help freely, but that does not stabilize the church. We must stabilize the church, assess the needs, and then empower the church so it can once again minister and flourish. In the process, the entire village around the church is blessed. The people see that as the church prospers and ministers so does the overall community prosper.
The only way to do this is to get money flowing in the community. What better place to start than the church. Pray we will have the funds to stabilize the church families. We do not want to give a handout; we want to give a hand up; empowerment, not entitlement, is our goal.
Please pray for ORH. Please consider this “open door”, and let’s not hesitate to go to the harvest.
