Syrian Refugees Update 4

Thursday February 5, 2015

Dear Friends,

These are further messages from Pastor Dahdah of Gospel Baptist Church in Zahle, Lebanon.  To date, ORH has been able to help the Syrian Refugees with a total of $8000.00 for which Pastor Dahdah has very meticulously accounted.  ORH is thankful for him, and his love for Christ.  Please read his latest report.

Dear Bro. Jan, Thanks very much for helping the Syrians with Diesel for heating .  we helped each family with $ 50 = 100 liters of Diesel and we helped 75 families 75 * 50= 3750 $ plus $ 250 for Money transfer + church expenses .  $ 3750 + $ 250 = $ 4000
during these snowy weather and low temperature , these 100 liters will stay for only 20-25 days . and in moderate weather will stay longer .  last 20 days , we got 3 successive snow storms , and the Bekaa Valey got from 40cm - 60 cm of snow we couldn't held our meetings for 10 days .
find attached 35 photos out of 75 families holding each 2 coupons .
If you have any questions , don't hesitate to ask .
May God Bless you .
In His Service
pastor Karim Dahdah

ORH also thanks Sam Stricklin who untiringly and many times at the jeopardy of his life has ministered to the wonderful believers in our Islamic nations.  ORH’s admiration, respect, and trust for this man is great.

ORH wanted to take a group from the United States to do a medical clinic, but the current tensions prevented this.  A great friend and original ORH worker, Joe Crane, out of his vast knowledge of security issues warned ORH away.  He was correct, and ORH thanks him for his wisdom and love for ORH.

There is a strong possibility that doctors from Lebanon can be hired to go to Gospel Baptist Church for one week and offer their services to the Syrian people.  Pray for this endeavor.  It will be fraught with potential and real problems, but the people must be reached while they are in Lebanon.  It is an open door opportunity to take a bad thing and make it a help physically and spiritually to the Syrians fleeing form ISIS.

If you would like to donate by check, please send your checks to Operation Renewed Hope, P.O. Box 43242, Fayetteville, NC 28309.  Please mark the checks “International Relief.”

Pray ORH will be able to do a clinic in Lebanon.  Pray that many will come and receive the compassion of Christ physically and spiritually.  They must hear that Jesus Saves!

Please download the PDF, which is too large to put inside an email, to see each person who received the fuel coupons.  Use these pictures as prayer cards for the people.  Pray for ORH to be able to send at least $2000.00 more to help during this time.  Also, pray ORH would have the funds to do a medical clinic at Gospel Baptist Church in Zahle, Lebanon, for the Syrian refugees.

God bless,

Peru Update

Peru Update

Monday February 16, 2015

Dear Friends

Our dear friends, Alex and Flor Herrera, are now out of the Baptist Mid Missions Bible College in Cusco, Peru.  In our last clinic in the Manu Region just off of the Rio Madre de Dios, Alex and his wife Flor helped us do the evangelism during our clinic days.  They have since been working the area to continue our efforts.  ORH, by faith, started supporting them at $200.00 per month which is the only support they received.

Now they are moving to the area full time.  ORH, by faith, will now send to missionary Buddy Fitzgerald $300.00 per month for one year because they have moved to the region and are establishing a permanent work.

Please pray that this money will be available each month.  ORH wants to establish a good church in a difficult area as a result of the ORH clinics and follow-up work.

This is a message we received from them for the month of January through missionary Buddy Fitzgerald of Baptist World Missions.

in January

Dear brother; I greet you in the great name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; and to wish the richest blessings from our good God and to share with what the great love God is doing in the jungle of Peru. After celebrate Christmas, we have been visiting the families who came to our services, thank God received us very kindly, I am convinced that God is at work in the lives of people, because after they searched me to ask some tips related to your family. Dear brother this January has been very difficult since it began the rainy season, and on some days it has been very difficult to go out and share the Word of God, but that is not an impediment, as we try to recover those hours when it does not rain; dear brother not only strong rain is falling, but also have been cut off for over a month without electricity and a week without access into and out of the area because of a strong collapse. But thank God we have been fine. Because there was no electricity, we have had to go with my family to the city of Cusco, to collect financial aid that you generously give us, and you see to take my wife and daughter to the doctor because they have them started dating white spots on the body; why I ask for your prayers that God who is the doctor of medical work in the lives of my family; Also we went poderles write and keep them aware what is happening in the jungle, because seeing no electricity, no such call, no internet, we are virtually incommunicado; we know that God is in control of everything, so I ask your prayers for God to intercede and everything returns to normal.

I send you a big hug to the distance wishing that God permits in the not too distant future to see them dear brothers. Sincerely Herrera family.  (Children meeting  3 meetings; brochures distributed  95 booklets; evangelized  35; Converted people   1 person; Worship Services  7 Services).

Attached are pictures and a translation of their December work report.  Pray for them; the health problems are always very real in the jungle.
