Hurricane Matthew Update


Friday, October 14, 2016

Dear Friends,

The impact of Hurricane Matthew is still being assessed as the water recedes.  It is absolutely difficult to get into the impact areas because the water has not receded and there is still major water problems. 

North Carolina

Anchor Baptist Mission in Mt. Pisgah Forest, NC has taken two trucks of supplies for distribution.  Anchor is one of the finest groups that ORH has the privilege of knowing.

Please read the report from Michael Blanton who is actively engaged through Anchor Baptist Mission in moving supplies to the needy areas of NC.

“Bro. Milton, It was good to talk with you yesterday. Per our conversation we have sent two loads to the Lumberton NC area, 1st load was Gospel Tabernacle Church at Maxton NC. Pastor Chris Locklear.  The 2nd load was staged at the Baptist Center in Red Springs, Pastor Wendell Hunt overseeing the operations (it    was much easier to get to, even thought we did have to drive over a flooded road). They have a drive thru and trucks going out to the neighborhoods, and shelters. While I was there on Tuesday rescue workers came in with families that was still wet from being pulled off their homes. As you know we lost two truck in an accident, so we are having to rent tractors for our trailer. With our people giving to W Va. & La. things are tight and we are trusting GOD for our every need, if you could help with the transportation it would be a real blessing. The cost is about $500.00 per. load, 100% of all funds goes to where it is intended. I’m starting on load #3 now. Michael Blanton, ABMI”

Operation Renewed Hope is committed to this third shipment by Anchor Baptist Mission.  ORH will send $600.00 to Anchor Baptist to help them move this 3rd load into the “Matthew” areas of NC.  Thank God for Anchor Baptist Missions.

Once again, ORH will join with Nehemiah’s Network and DirectLine Ministry.  Pastor Jenkins wrote the following:

“We will be sending a load to Red Springs, NC.  I will pay Paul to take load; and then when you send $600.00, we will reimburse church.”

ORH will send $600.00 to help them with travel costs to complete a mission to the impact area of “Matthew” in North Carolina.  Pastor Allen Jenkins and Paul Deem are working together to move a load on next Tuesday to the Red Springs, NC, distribution point.  Please pray for their safety.

Haiti

There is no end to the desperate situation in Haiti.  The people are frightened beyond measure.  Please read what ORH received this from Sarah Bennett, Mission for Haiti.


     “This very morning at 3:00 am, the streets in Jacmel were full of residents who were looking for transportation to go to higher elevations for safety from a tsunami. Some will even walk most of the day to reach the mountains. A rumor started that a tsunami is coming and people are panicking!! There is nothing official concerning this. It’s just a rumor spread on social media and WhatsApp, and it’s causing so much panic.

     Concerning the western part of the island—cholera has started and many have died already. The hunger and homelessness are so pathetic. Mission for Haiti and Operation Renewed Hope have joined together and are already helping. We will continue, depending upon funds we are given for this tragedy

     Please pray and please give. Thank you so much!!”

ORH is still in need of aircraft for Haiti.  Two twin engine planes are committed for about 10 days from now.  A pilot and aircraft are needed before that time.  Please join the Air Hope coalition to help fly over the destruction with needed supplies.

Continue to pray for West Virginia and Louisiana.
