Kelle Hein is now in Haiti working with Pastor Cherubin of Hosanna Baptist Church. They are presently surveying the great needs. The situation in Haiti is a nightmare of disaster. Please pray for Kelle as he flies much needed relief goods to those in need.
ORH thanks Pastor Marc Mortensen, First Baptist Church of Westwood Lake, Miami, FL. The school administrator Humberto Mendez in concert with Pastor Mortensen assisted ORH to purchase materials and to load Kelle Hein’s plane with the needed materials for the work in Haiti. This church and pastor have been a God-send every time ORH has called on them for physical and financial support.
We also want to thank Dave Spangler for allowing Kelle Hein to fly his Cherokee 6 for the mission.
Please see the attached 2 page PDF for pictures of the work.
Operation Renewed Hope has had the pleasure to work with Dave Spangler and Flyin4God for several years. He has directed the use of aircraft and pilots for Air Hope missions. He has lived in the Bahamas and now conducts a Bible College on the Island of Andros. Here is his report as he flew aid to the churches and people of Andros.
“Good morning Pastor Jan, After spending the day on North Andros Bahamas this is what I found. Most of the houses in Lowe Sound are gone, wiped out. What is not gone has no roof. The community of Red Bays heavy damage and no power. Nichol's Town heavy damage some power. The need for groceries and tarps is great. I took a chain saw and generator and 800 lbs of groceries yesterday. We are giving to the local Pastors to distribute to their church families. I need help with fuel costs and of course any donations of or for groceries.”
Operation Renewed Hope is paying the expenses for the aircraft so that Dave can help the people of Andros.
Operation Renewed Hope is financing delivery of relief goods by Nehemiah’s Network to North Carolina. This is a message from Pastor Jenkins of Nehemiah’s Network.
“Load left today picking up Bro Medlin's stuff tomorrow.”
Pastor Ernie Medlin, Faith Baptist Church, St. Matthews, SC, has worked with ORH supplying food for United States’ disasters. He has at least 3000 pounds of food for Pastor Jenkins to pick-up on the trip to North Carolina. This entire load will be distributed to all in need.
ORH is now working with Pastor Cody Mansfield. Here is his report.
“My name is Pastor Cody Mansfield and I'm the pastor at Tabernacle FWB Church in Kinston North Carolina. Hurricane Matthew has devastated us but the Lord is in control! We are extremely grateful for all that God is doing for us and what His people are doing as well. We have a lot of long hard days ahead of us but we recognize that God is still good no matter our circumstance.”
Pastor Josh Tadlock of Harvest Baptist Church in Hope Mills, NC, will be meeting with Pastor Mansfield to assess what the needs are. Pastor Josh will be delivering water bottles to Goldsboro on Thursday as he goes to visit Pastor Mansfield. Thank you very much Pastor Josh.
Please pray for the work in the entire area that many will be helped by the food and supplies.
