Elena in Russia, Burn Victim
We just received this communication from Kevin Jones in Siberia. Please read his update and give to your prayer groups.
“Lena has had 2 more operations. This week the doctors are going to try to get her up and into a wheelchair. She still has several burn areas that have not been covered with grafts. She is responding to the antibiotics, but this is the last antibiotic that is available so there is still a serious risk of the bacteria becoming resistant leaving her with no possible treatment. Thank you for praying. Kevin”
Kevin Jones is a good missionary. As he works with this lady, he is influencing family members and professionals that he is not part of a cult as the people tend to believe. This actions of compassion and effort are the greatest “door openers” for the spread of the Gospel.
Kevin needs our strongest efforts in prayer for the life of Elena, her family, and the medical professionals in his area.
Rochelle, IL – Tornado Efforts
An EF-4 Tornado touched down in Rochelle and Fairdale, IL last week. The devastation was very bad and at least two people were killed. Pastor Jenkins of Nehemiah’s Network has been working with ORH for years now to help people in need after disasters, both physically and spiritually. He is a pastor committed to the Gospel of Christ and its spread.
Please read his communication to ORH on Thursday, April 9, 2015. Operation Renewed Hope has promised he and his church $1000.00 to start the relief work to Rochelle through Harvest Baptist Church in Rochelle. Harvest has agreed to take the supplies delivered to the town and also to tell people about our Savior.
“Hi Bro Jan, We will be collecting and buying supplies for the trip to Harvest Baptist Church in Rochelle Illinois. We will load truck up on Friday with a delivery on Saturday the 18th. We are having people drop off at our church or the warehouse. People can also make a donation for disaster relief online at columbiaroad.org.
Thanks for your help we will keep track of how the $1000.00 you committed from Operation Renewed Hope was used (“was used” – inserted for clarity by ORH)….Pastor Alan C. Jenkins, Columbia Road Baptist Church, 4116 Columbia Road, North Olmsted, OH 44070”
