Hurricane "Matthew" Update


Thursday, November 10, 2016


Dear Friends,


Bahamas


ORH just received this from Dave Spangler, Air Hope pilot.  He is thanking all who have made it possible for him to help the Bahamian victims of Hurricane “Matthew.”  ORH has committed fuel money, $1000.00, for his plane. 


Pray for Dave as he continues to help the people of Lowe Sound.


“Just returned from Andros, Bahamas where the community of Lowe Sound was destroyed. This is where we have one of our Bible Institutes. The food crisis is over but now a great need for clothing and bedding. Many only have the clothes that are on their back. Next will be rebuilding. See pictures attached


I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the generous gift you gave for the people of Lowe Sound Andros Bahamas. You helped make it possible for me to fly over 600 pounds of food cleaning supplies and over $1,000.00 worth of sheets and blankets. Sixteen years of teaching and preaching would go for naught if we did not put our faith to work and show love in meeting their physical needs. Attached are some of the pictures - the open vacant lots are where houses use to be.”


Haiti


Flying in the Air Hope coalition of pilots and organizations, pilots, Michael Coupe and Dave Crispell, have flown tarps and clothing supplies into Haiti for ORH.  These items are now in the hands of Pastor Cherubin for needed distribution.


Pastor Marc Mortensen and his church, First Baptist of Westwood Lake loaded Mike’s plane with tarps and other necessities.  Michael also stopped at Iglesia Bautista Cristiana, Pastor Pedro da Cunha and Pastor Yadin Rodriguez, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.  There the church people loaded clothing from a clothing drive by this very gracious church for the work in Haiti.


On November 12th, Mrs. Sarah Bennett of Mission for Haiti will fly with Michael and Dave to Jeremie for an evaluation of the best possible way to help this ravaged area.  ORH has already sent $4000.00 for food through Mission for Haiti.  Now a decision must be made about stabilizing those who are in the area with their lodging.


Connie Anderson’s children’s home was struck with the winds of “Matthew.”  In co-ordination with Restore Ministries, Greg Rife, ORH has committed to help pay for a new dormitory roof for her children.  Please pray as Greg, helps her with recovery of her much needed buildings.


ORH thanks all who have helped with the needs.  ORH will keep you informed about the work as it progresses.

God bless,
