Pakistan and Myanmar Update

Wednesday August 26, 2015

Dear Friends,

Pakistan Flooding and Medical Needs

Sam Stricklin is a brave and courageous man who spends many weeks a year in Islamic nations visiting, encouraging, and training Christians, pastors, and individuals.  We at ORH are so honored to work with this man and his ministry.

ORH sent $800.00 to Sam to help with rebuilding a flooded home of a pastor.  Also, the a portion of the $800.00 paid for two surgeries; one was for a small boy, and one for a pastor’s wife.  The money for such things is so small, yet so needed.

Sam wrote me this concerning the gift that came through your giving.

“Bro. Jan,   I notified Ayub of the $800. I will wire it after I get home on August 20.  Please send it to Tri-City designated MAP/Pakistan. Thank you so much!  Sam”
 
Please pray for these brothers and sisters who live in devastating hostility.  Please look at the PDF of a church that Sam works with in Pakistan.  Pray for the church and safety for the people.

Myanmar Flooding Report

Recently, Ron White, veteran missionary, sent us information about the need of Dr. David Sum in Myanmar with the monsoon flooding.  Over one million people have been displaced.  ORH was able to send $3000.00 for the needs of Dr. Sum through Ron White because of your gifts.

Dr. Sum wrote us this report.

“Dear Brother Jan Milton,  Greetings from Burma.  Pray and hope that you are doing well.  As the need is so desperate and though the fund has not arrived to us yet we tried our best and with some of our friends and our school boys we went to relief work and just came back.  We just started our journey from Yangon at 1:00am midnight and arrived at Caung Gone town at 5:00am in the morning and had breakfast there.  Then we continue 45 minutes more and then we moved our foodstuff from trucks to boats. this time we could help rice, water, clothes, medicine and rehydration salts.  We came back at the same day and arrived yangon at 8:30 pm.  Please see some photos.  Blessings, David”

Thank you for helping us through the donations.  Dr. Sum and his people need more funds to help the displaced people of the flooding.  The funds would buy food, water, fuel, and boating for their efforts.  Dr. Sum will faithfully preach the Gospel of Christ.

There are also three other ministries that we are trying to help.  Our brothers and sisters are in very severe trouble and need help.
