At this time, the following has been accomplished through your valuable input. ORH never moves to the work without solid information.
ORH has contacted Jared Baldwin with Harvest Baptist Church in Guam. He has assured us that they are in good condition. We have partnered with this great church to help with last typhoon in the Philippines.
ORH has sent word to Matthew Starin on Okinawa and is awaiting a response.
Missionary Tim Melton in Japan has responded and has promised to give us updates about needs. At this time he is not in need.
ORH has also attempted to contact Pastor Craft of Maranatha Baptist Church in Okinawa City, Okinawa. We have been unsuccessful to get contact, but will continue trying by email and phone.
Ron White with Tri-City Baptist Church in Independence MO writes the following:
"Missionaries, Dan and Terri Gardner. They have a church, a camp, and a house. Missionaries Dan Gardner, Jr and Heidi. they have a house and also share the camp and church building with his parents. Missionaries Matt and Sachiko Sanders. They have a home and a church building. Maranatha Baptist Church and all their missionaries, workers, members, school, students and staff. National pastors Fujino and family, Saito and family, and several others.
The same typhoon is heading on to Mainland Japan where I know several missionaries and many national pastors, workers, and believers."
David Harris of BIMI is attempting to help ORH with information. His help in the last disaster in Japan was invaluable.
Thank you so much for the immediate information to begin the relief efforts. Your help is always essential to proper evaluation. You are God's blessing to ORH.
Pray for the contacts that will be made, so that ORH can assess the opportunity to minister to the saved and the lost. This is another open door of opportunity to behave like our savior as He helped the suffering while in His earthly ministry.
Pray that the contacts are safe and ready to minister to the people around them.
At this time, do not send money. When ORH is certain of a proper course of action we will request help.
At this time, patiently wait with ORH for information that leads us to where God is wanting us to work.
