India VMA Clinic Leper Clinic

Sunday, August 13, 2017



Dear Friends,

Below is a report from Dr. John Paul Moses, a medical professional working with the ORH Village Medical Assistant program in India.  This report is about a clinic he conducted with ORH’s help the weekend of Aug 11,12,13, 2017 

Please read the following.

        “Dear Uncle Jan and Dr Daniel's, Greetings to you in the Precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through whom we have the remission of sins and the gift of salvation by His Grace......!

        I hope and pray that all is well with you and your families. We are returning back from the 'Nalagonda District, AP. Lepers colony' to Hyderabad. We had come here on the Friday to meet with few Christian ministers of the Word, and today through your help, prayers and support were able to conduct an evangelistic medical clinic at the above mentioned lepers colony. As you know that we have been working among the poor, the downtrodden of our country, since few years, we have been able to visit this area before and our last visit to this colony was in 2016.

Our team consisted myself, my brother Titus, our cousin Alwin, A nurse, and our contact in Hyderabad with two volunteers at the lepers colony.

        We saw about 55 patients today in the colony, of whom 40 had active disease. There was heavy rainfall and downpour and it was very difficult for us to reach the location on time. But thank God for the journey mercies and a favorable weather later on....! We were able to carry plenty of gauze rolls, cotton rolls, multi vitamins, pain and antacid medicines and some anti biotics, systemic and topical. We were able to dress several wounds of all the patients with active ulcers and disease. Praise God and Amen that eight women recieved the Gospel today.   I shared with them the story of 'Simon the Magician', from Acts Chapter 8, how he saw Phillip witnessing and performing miracles, how he believed in Jesus thereafter, took baptism, but fell behind with a false view of self, salvation, and God the Holy-spirit. Taught them about the Faith and Baptism that doesnt save, and that repentance from one's sins and the believing faith that our Lord Jesus died for our sins on the cross only brings salvation unto Mankind......! Thank God for these souls. Please pray for them.  Yours Faithfully In Christ, Love, Dr. John Paul Moses, and Titus Moses.”

ORH sent $1000.00 for this clinic.  Pray we will have the funds to continue the work with all of our VMA clinics.  Please download the PDF and publish.

Lebanon Syrian Refugees



The work in Lebanon among the Syrian refugees is an ever-increasing effort.  Thank God for the work of Sam Strickland and Pastor Karim Dahdah, Gospel Baptist Church in Zahle, Lebanon.  Please read the report below.



            “Dear Bro. Jan,  This is in follow-up to the 19 photos I forwarded you from Pastor Karim, Gospel Baptist Church, Zahle, Lebanon.

            Every time I send pictures to you I start to cry when I see the faces of so many of these dear people who I personally know. I want to thank you and ORH for helping these people who have been displaced from their homes in Syria and lost everything.

            Many of them have come to know Christ as their Savior and they faithfully attend Gospel Baptist Church.

            The man in the 4th picture is a former Sunni Muslim that I led to the Lord a little over a year ago. His brother has threatened to behead him and his mother has disowned him. He used to own a factory that made women's and children's clothing in Syria. He now works a manual job to try to provide for his wife and five children. He faithfully attends the church.  His wife is not yet a believer, but she is beginning to come around.  They have invited me to come to their home for a meal when I am there in August.

            The man kneeling in picture number 7 is also a converted Sunni Muslim.  His wife, who is now a believer, and his three daughters faithfully attend the church.  When I first met them, his wife was in process of divorcing him because he was a believer.

            The Lord is at work in the Middle East!  Thanks again!  Sincerely, Sam”



Please download the PDF for pictures of the work in Zahle.



ORH has committed another $1000.00 by August 1, 2017 to buy more food vouchers.  By your efforts, these people are seeing the difference between religions armed with weapons and the truth of God’s abundant love to all men.  Help us to keep this going.  Over 1.4 million refugees came out of Syria.  The Church can do its part to give a helping hand and the Gospel.

Dear Friends,



The work of the missionaries who have chosen to do medical missions is a blessing.  Dr. Tom Johnson with Baptist World Missions is one of those missionaries.  ORH attempts to help Dr. Johnson pay for his clinics.  We are thankful to be a part of his work.  Please read the report on his last VMA clinic.



     “Dear Daniel:,  We did a small clinic after a great discipleship time where 3 men were saved. Another lady was saved during the clinic. We will be doing two more clinics with the money you sent. We saw only 26 patients last Friday; but we have another clinic scheduled for Friday, July 14th which will be larger, probably seeing 50 patients.

     Our last clinic this month will be on July 21st, which we are planning to see about 70 patients.

     Thank you for your support! The Lord is using the love and compassion(of Christ) through the medical clinics to reach people's hearts and start churches! See attached photo.  Love,  Dr. Tom”

India VMA Clinic June 2017


Wednesday, June 28, 2017


Dear Friends,

Once again our efforts to keep VMA clinics going in different parts of the world brings us to India.  Dr. John Paul Moses writes us about his efforts with his brother Titus who is a minister of the Gospel.  Dr. John Paul writes the following.



“Dear Uncle Jan and Dr Daniel's, Greetings to you in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Just wanted to let you know that we are on our way to the leper’s colony in BIJAPUR.

Please pray for us as we are once again. Traveling through the insurgent’s region infested by 'Naxalites'. My vehicle continues to have problems, pray that it wouldn't break down.

We love you in the LORD. Please Pray for my Mom who fell down and has hurt her wrist. She has a Fracture. Mom, Elizabeth and baby are left behind taking care of each other.

Shall keep you updated about tomorrow. We are excited.  Yours faithfully in Christ, JP and Titus.”



After finishing the clinic day we received this from the two medical missionaries.



“I and Titus had a great day today in Bijapur district. I thank you for helping us to come here with the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”



The PDF attached contains pictures of their work in the leper colony.  Please download the PDF for more information about the clinic and the preaching of the Gospel in front of a Hindu Temple.



Pray that the funds necessary to conduct these clinics will be available.  Shortly, we will be adding more places to conduct clinics through our Village Medical Assistants program.

Peru Medical Team 2017


Thursday, June 22, 2017


Dear Friends,

Peru has been a very blessed place of ministry for ORH medical teams.  The 2017 team was no different.  God gave us great blessings although the trip itself was very difficult.

Buddy and Loren Fitzgerald once again were the missionary hosts who made our team work possible.  We also were blessed to meet Tim and Barb Whatley who are the parents of Flor Herrera, wife of Alex Herrera our pastor in Pilcopata.

The mission started by flying into Cusco at about 11000 ft in the Andes.  From this lofty height, our team traveled to the jungle floor of the Manu region where our work with Alex and Flor has been on-going.

The trip took 10 hours by bus down the mountains.  The highest point on the trip was about 12,600 ft.  The road was one lane dirt and gravel.  The trip from Cusco and return will be for all of us one of the most challenging of our lives.

The team held the first and second day of clinic in Salvacion where our new missionary friends, Bob and Becky Bass are conducting ministry.  This is a blessing because they have arrived since our first clinic there to establish a church.  We are excited about future ministry with them.

The second site of ministry was Pilcopata where Alex and Flor have been conducting ministry and church services since our first clinic in Pilcopata.  They have a church building now, and are hoping to purchase another building which will be better for ministry.

There were 1000 patients who attend our clinic, and a total of fifty-seven received Christ in both locations.  Now with missionaries in each location, we hope to make this area a focus of ORH ministry for many years to come.

Pray for God’s blessing on the work in this very remote area of Peru.

Medical Mission Summit 2017


Thursday June 22, 2017

Dear Friends

Thank you in advance for the generous time you will spend reading this email about the 2017 Medical Mission Summit jointly presented by Operation Renewed Hope and Maranatha Baptist University on September 21-23, 2017.


This will be the first of its kind in fundamental churches to recruit young people to pursue a life of medical missions, either part time or full time.  Because it is a first time event, the cost has been kept to $75.00 for room, board, and events per young person.


To fill the 150 slots which is being offered, we need to contact the students in churches and Christian schools around the country.  We need your help. 



  1. Please, help us broadcast the message so that young people can be challenged to increase their diligence in missions, Bible, math, and science.  This is a very competitive world of education, today.  Please give a copy of this to your science, math, and Bible teachers.

  1. Please enroll and send at least two youth representatives to this very important youth challenge for world missions.

  1. We falso need a list of churches and schools in your knowledge with their emails, so that we can let the pastors and administrations know of this wonderful opportunity for their young people from ninth through twelfth grade.  If you can provide us access to such a list, we would be very judicious and private in its use.

The electronic brochure attached to the email reads eleventh through twelfth grade, but the summit is open to ninth and tenth as well because of the importance of course work in those years of education.


There is an adult tract of classes and workshops concerning medical missions for those adults attending with the young people.


Please help us to reach the churches, schools and the students.



God bless,



Jan Milton

Hurricane Matthew Haiti


Wednesday, April 26, 2017


Dear Friends,


This is a report from Restore Ministries, Greg Rife, concerning Connie Anderson and her children’s home in Haiti.  Her ministry buildings were damage by Hurricane Matthew.  Please download the pdf with pictures of Connie’s compound.


“Jan, Just wanted to get you an update on the progress of our Haitian Hurricane Matthew response – specifically Connie Anderson’s orphanage repairs.  Connie’s generator is fully functional, her solar panel system has been repaired, she has a brand new gate and front entrance, and for the first time has a wonderful fence around the public areas of the property.  The materials have been purchased for the back half of the fencing and should be completed in the coming weeks.  We have a verbal commitment form a church to replace her wind generators and, although not all the repairs are done at the clinic, it is operating 2 days a week.  The main dormitory roof that was damaged that you sent money for has still not been replaced, however the majority of the materials are finally on sight to do the work.  The road up to Connie’s was so bad after the hurricane that it took months to get our first load of materials and then the rainy season began soon after the first load, causing more delays.  Sometime in the next few weeks crews will begin to remove the old roof, re-support the dorm for the new concrete roof, and begin construction.  As per our last conversation, we are still about $5000 short of funds to complete the remodel and repairs of the main dorm.  Just wanted to give you an update on our progress and to say thank you to you and your donors for your generous support of our Haitian Hurricane Matthew response.  Your support is invaluable and we pray the Lord blesses your efforts.  Talk to you soon.  In His Service, Greg Rife”


Greg has worked so hard over the past year with all of the disasters both domestic and foreign.  Pray that his health and strength holds.  Pray for his family also.

Peru and Lebanon


Saturday, April 22, 2017



Dear Friends,

PERU

Pastor Giorgio Romani is continuing the efforts for ORH in Peru.  He is attempting to be as frugal as possible.  Thank you for your donations to ORH for the Peru Relief flooding effort.  Operation Renewed Hope has enjoyed our labors with Pastor Giorgio and Brother Shapiama.

Please read the report below.

“Mr. Milton,  Once again I want to thank you for your encouragement, advice and support during our efforts to bring relief and the gospel to those suffering in Peru.  We know that what we have done is very little, but it is magnified and worth it all when we hear of the souls coming to know Him as Savior.

As a church and ministry we are planning  two more trips, one two Lambayeque and another one to Piura.  These trips are not improvised, they have been part of our goals for the past 3 weeks.

We decided to wait a little while for these trips, because we wanted to focus on the ones we had at hand. We have been trying to do our research and we have finally selected the ministries and local pastors with whom we will be working.

Both areas are in northern Peru, and we will have to fly there.

The first trip- Lambayeque- is scheduled for the last week of April.

Our goal is to raise 4000.00 soles ( aprox. 1300.00 USD).  We will be helping two ministries/ pastors that have suffered the consequences of the floods. Both pastors have expressed the need they have for mattresses, blankets, shoes, clothing, and basic toiletries more than food.

One of the churches is in need of chairs and a pulpit and we are planning to help with that as the Lord provides.

The second trip- Piura- is schedule for the second week of May.

Piura is the region that has been most affected in Peru. Our goal is to raise 10000.00 soles (aprox. 3200.00 USD).

Their situation is very similar to those in Lambayeque and the needs they have expressed are alike. The main difference is that their church buildings are inhabitable. This is why the cost is higher. One of the church buildings has been completely destroyed and we are planning to give them a significant portion of the amount raised in order to help them with the initial process of rebuilding. The other church was flooded, but it is a rental; the sad part is that most of the church belongings that were placed on the roof top for safety were stolen.

Both pastors in these areas have suffered material lost, but praise the Lord their homes are still standing and they were able to save most of their belongings.

I hope this information helps. If you need more information please let me know. God bless, Dr. Giorgio Romani, Gal 2:20”


Lebanon


The PDF is a picture of the work in Lebanon with Pastor Karim Dahdah.  Please pray for him as he helps the Syrian refugees in the area around Zahle, where he is pastor of Gospel Baptist Church.



The pictures are of him with people who received fuel oil coupons for heating.  We have purchased $1000.00 of fuel oil and hope to distribute $1000.00 more.

Peru Flooding Update


Friday, April 14, 2017




Dear Friends,


The relief work continues to go forward, but will be held up for Easter weekend so the churches may rest and rejoice in the Resurrection of Christ.  The work should begin again on the Monday after Easter.  Read the latest update from Pastor Giorgio and download the pdf of pictures.


“Mr. Milton,  Yesterday we came back to Huarmey with over 200 packages of food and basic toiletries! We had planned on 150, but the Lord once again showed us His abundant love, mercy and provision.


In the midst of all the suffering and turmoil that we have seen the Lord has allowed us to portray His love through donations, physical help, but He has mainly open a door for us to share the gospel with hundreds.


It is very hard to see the suffering of those who have lost their homes and earthly goods but it is so magnificent to see and hear of the many that have come to the knowledge of Him. It was very encouraging to hear the testimony of the Pastor that we have worked with in Huarmey. He told us that last Sunday, after our first trip there,  they had over 100 people at their church service ( something that had not happened before) and that he is being invited to share the Word at differen

t communities where the help was brought. He asked me to express his gratitude towards everyone who is helping and contributing. He wants us all to be reminded that the labor and sacrifice for our
Lord is not in vain.


Praise the Lord!


We have two more trips coming up to the north of Peru ( Lambayeque y Piura). Please keep praying for us, for the many that are suffering and mainly for many to come to the knowledge of Him. Giorgio Romani   Gal 2:20"

Peru Flood Update


Thursday, April 6, 2017



Dear Friends,


Please read the update from Pastor Giorgio Romani about the continuing work with the floods in Peru.  He needs our help as he reaches people with the gospel and physical help.  Also, please download the attachment to see the work.


“Yesterday we came back from Huarmey, Peru , 5 hours north of us. This area has been severely affected by the mudslides and floods. We want to thank everyone who helped bringing donations, preparing the packages, praying, and contributing financially. The need is great and it is encouraging to see the benevolence and love of many of you towards those who are suffering.

Our hearts were full of joy as we were able to share the gospel with hundreds and we were blessed with the opportunity to help more than 256 families with clothing, food, and basic toiletries.

Despise the joy we felt, we were also burdened with the hundreds that we could not help.

There is one particular area that is not being helped much. We were only able to help 78 families of this community and it was sad to see the desperation of those who left empty-handed. Some of them became aggressive against each other and against us, but it was because they just wanted some help. My heart is burdened for them and I am praying and planning to organize one more trip there next week. Our goal will be to help 150 families in this area. Their hearts are open to hear the gospel and they are also in great need.

The cost to prepare 150 packages is approximately 2500 soles (approx 800 dollars). This does not include the cost of transportation and truck rental. The trip we made yesterday cost about 4500 soles (almost 1400 USD); the Lord really blessed and with your help and the help of three other churches in Lima we were able to get all the expenses covered.

....  I trust the Lord will supply for the needs that we have as we plan to share Christ and portray His love. Our church in Lima has surprised me with their commitment and expressions of Love towards our brethren that are hurting and towards those in need.

Please continue to pray for us as we continue to plan bringing aid to those who have suffered from the mudslides and floods and please pray for the many that are still suffering here in Peru! Mainly for many to come to the knowledge of Him.

God bless!  Giorgio Romani  Gal 2:20”


Please continue to pray for the relief work in Peru.  There are many to hear the gospel and be helped.  Pastor Giorgio and his people are doing the best that they can do with the money they have.  Operation Renewed Hope has sent $1100.00 of the $2000.00 committed.

Peru Flood Update


Wednesday, March 29, 2017


Dear Friends,


ORH has received the following report by Pastor Giorgio Romani in Peru.  Please read his report.


“Mr. Milton, The pastor from Chiclayo took these pictures last Saturday from an area of Lambayeque that was flooded almost two weeks ago. There used to be a Baptist church in the area, but its temple has been pretty much destroyed.

They are also in need and apparently, the weather is starting to get better in this area, allowing us to plan a trip sooner than what we thought.

The pastor shared with us that they are in need to rebuild the temple and also in need to fix their home and the house of another pastor that we also know. The area is in need of toiletries and non-perishable foods. He mentioned that they are concerned with the spreading of dengue and other diseases. They are asking for a medical team, we will share the need with some national doctors, hoping to plan a trip focused on medial assistance.

If you have any advice you could give me in how to handle these situations and how to do bette... I would really appreciate it.

It is very overwhelming to hear the testimonies of the many that are suffering. It is so hard to make a decision on where to help, but we have focused our support in the areas I mentioned.

We pray for wisdom and we ask you to please continue to pray for us and for much wisdom in how and whom to help.  God bless, Giorgio Romani Gal 2:20”

Peru Flooding


Wednesday, March 22, 2017



Dear Friends,



Once again, our brethren and their ministries to the people are in need of physical and spiritual help.  This time the need is in Peru with the terrible flooding.  Thanks to Dr. Rick (Ricardo) Armstrong of Iglesia Biblica Bautista Antioquia in Antioch, CA. ORH has been given the names of trusted people with which to work.



Dr. Armstrong has suggested a man who is in Peru and from his church, David Shipiama.  Below is his testimony about the situation.



“The people of Peru are going through difficult times. The mud slides and heavy rains have flooded many communities and have the whole country in suspense. Peru hasn't seen this much devastation caused by rain in the last 20 years.  The most affected areas are the central mountains and the coast.  The report from the government is that the heavy rains and mud slides are expected to continue until the end of the month.”



David continues his description of the situation.



“To this day, there have been reports of 75 deaths, 263 wounded, 20 people missing and 99,475 people that have lost everything they had.  Our main concerns right now are our brethren in the north that have been hit the hardest.  Many have had to evacuate their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs not knowing when they will be allowed to go back and others have lost everything.   The most urgent needs are food, water, shelter, clothing and medicines.”



David attends Iglesia Bautista de Fe and works with a group called MADEL that educates church leadership, gives the gospel, teaches English as a second language, and provides medical care.  The pastor and director of the church in Lima, Iglesia Bautista de Fe, and its ministry, MADEL, is Giorgio Romani.  Below is his appraisal of helping the people in the impact area.



“Due to the natural disasters in Peru, we are planning as a ministry and church to help two churches located right outside of Lima and also two churches located in the area of Chiclayo and possibly one in Piura.”



The churches located near Lima are in an area that has been and is still being hit with mudslides and rain.  We have spoken with the pastors of these churches and they are desperately asking for help. They are in great need of basic supplies: …Food (non-perishables), Water, Diapers, Soap, Clothes, Toilet paper, Milk (powder), Medicine (basic medical aid supplies).



In the next couple of months they will also be in need of supplies to start cleaning and rebuilding walls: Bricks, Concrete, Plumbing, Electrical wiring, Sand.



We have also spoken with a couple of churches in Chiclayo and Piura (northern Peru) and they are also in great need of similar items. They are not receiving as much help because it is very difficult to get to those areas at this point….”



Please pray that ORH will be able to help these churches and the people in the community around the churches.  ORH is committing $2000.00 immediately to the need.  Pray for the work of the local Bible College which was flooded close to the area in Lima.

Peru Flooding Update


Saturday, March 25, 2017



Dear Friends,


The planning continues in Lima by our church brethren to reach into the devastation areas which will receive the least amount of help.  Please read the plans that were emailed to ORH by Pastor Giorgio.


“Mr. Milton, Yesterday, we received information from the pastor and church on the outskirts of Lima that we are planning on helping.

He told us about two towns, Barba Blanca and Winco, that are located approximately 40 minutes north of him. These two towns have been greatly affected by the rain and mudslides. They are not being helped as much as the others because the only way to get to them is with four wheel drive vehicles.

We will be going to help and bring donations to these people on Monday. We are renting a truck to bring the donations to Chosica, and from there we will have to rent 4 or 5 trucks (4 wheel drive) to go up the mountain. The cost for the truck to Chosica is covered and we have contacted some local churches here to help cover the cost of the four wheel drive trucks. It is around 180.00 soles to rent each one of these trucks.

We have collected donations from 4 other churches for this Monday, but the need is great. If the Lord provides, we will like to go there more than just this coming Monday.

As far as we know, these two towns do not have Baptist churches; however the pastor in Chosica shared with us that it is an area that they would like to reach out with the gospel and Lord willing in the future have a church planted over there.

Thank you for your time and your help!

        I will be taking pictures and Lord willing I will be able to send those to you Monday night or Tuesday morning.  Giorgio Romani, Gal 2:20”


ORH is excited by the combination of the gospel and a helping hand.  It is the ministry of Jesus.  Please pray that the excursion by the suffering church to relieve the suffering of others is successful.


ORH is sending $500.00 of the committed $2000.00 to this worthy effort.  Pray for God’s blessing as the churches unite to relieve suffering temporally and give the gospel for eternal relief.

Albania Urgent


Thursday, March 2, 2017



Dear Friends,


ORH clinic planner, Rick Williamson, is in Albania with missionary Mike Fiocchi preparing our next medical clinic for July 2017.  Please read the update he sent.  After Rick’s update, there is an urgent prayer request.


     “Attached is the picture of Hasima and her family.  They live in the village of Laknas, Albania.  Hasima is the one that is standing directly under the TV.  She was saved at Operation Renewed Hope’s medical clinic with Missionary Mike Fiocchi in Albania in July 2016.  Through follow-up home visits Bro. Mike and his wife Jennifer have been able to share the Gospel with many of the family members.  The older daughter (in yellow dress) has also received Christ as well as 2 of her other girls.

     Mike and his people go out every Thursday morning to the village with prescheduled visits to continue the follow-up visits from the clinic contact.  We are going this morning to visit a couple of the families and witness to them.  We should also be getting a video interview of Hasima’s testimony and maybe another one tonight.  Serving God and Loving it, Rick Williamson”


Rick later wrote me also about another salvation from those in last year’s clinic.


     “…add to the paragraph that following our video session tonight the girl standing to my right was saved.  Now Hasima and 4 of her daughters are Christians.  We are praying for her husband. Serving God and Loving it, Rick Williamson”


URGENT!!!

Please pray about a new sponsor for our trip to Albania in 2017.  The sponsoring organization that has sponsored our clinics since our first clinic in Albania is no longer sponsoring church oriented clinics.  We must find a sponsor.


Rick and Mike Fiocchi will be meeting with a doctor who could sponsor us into the country Friday morning Albania time.  Please pray for this meeting. We cannot let this ministry end.  Too many people are receiving the blessing of God.


By the way, the people, Rick mentioned that he and Mike would be following up from the clinic last year, received Christ also.  Rick called just a few minutes before preparing this update to give the praise.

2017 Bijapur India Medical Clinic


Tuesday, February 21, 2017



Dear Friends,


Thank you for praying for the medical clinic in Bijapur region in India.  Dr. John Paul Moses and his team completed the clinic and sent back this report.


Please read the report that they sent and continue to pray.


     “Dear Uncle Jan and Dr Daniel's, Greetings to you in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

     We had a wonderful medical clinic amongst the tribals in the villages of Bijapur district, Aliabad and Arakere on the 19 and 20 respectively. We worked with a local Pastor, who is ministering at Neereekshana Church. 

     The people living here are predominantly tribals..  They are called the 'Lambani's' or 'Banjaras' called the 'Jungle Wanderers'.

     Their religion is animal, plant and idol worship, practicing witch-craft and appeasing the evil spirits with certain kinds of animal sacrifices. If a person goes out of this religion or tribe, they are hunted down by the community, or they are exterminated from the village and the tribe.  Many years ago a missionary was chased down, and persecuted for bringing the gospel into these areas. The pastor here was one among those who hated Christianity.  But ever since he came to know the Lord, he has been working in these villages unfortunately many a times chased out and physically assaulted and attacked... He is alive because he once belonged to these groups!  God has been so gracious in helping us through ORH to perform an evangelistic medical clinic in these hostile tribal areas.  Those very people who persecuted the Christians once, now walked in to the church building to get medical aid and thus got to hear about the Love of our Lord Jesus.  Please go through the pictures I am sending with the next email.

     The devil right from the beginning of planning of this medical clinic has been very active and has tried various ways to stop us from going.  We saw about 400 patients with 270 registrations.  The crowd was overwhelming and we had limited man power to handle them. Mom was at medicine counter, distributing medicines and witnessing to the women.  Titus and pastors were witnessing and managing the crowd. We had to send many with wellness packs. But nevertheless, almost every one of them came forward to hear the Gospel and about 48 of them made decisions.  The local pastor and some believers will follow up on them and make sure that these people are encouraged to attend the church to grow in the Lord.

     We conducted one of the clinics in a church in Aliabad, where we worked on day one. On day two we worked in Arakere, in the open space, as there is no dedicated church building. We have a pastor who is willing to work amongst the tribals of arakere.  Please pray with us that God would provide for a building where people could gather to worship our Lord. Once again, thank you uncle Jan and Dr Daniel's, and all of ORH, for praying with me and my family for this clinic.

     We are now returning home, with a great burden for these people in the upcoming days. Opportunities for church planting are huge. Hoping to return to this area again in april once my wife, Eliz, delivers the baby which is in a few days.  Please pray for our journey and safety.  Pray for our family mission in bhadravathi and most importantly dad who isn’t keeping well.  Thanks much much again.  We are ready for the next camp!  All smiles and Glory to our Lord.  Amen.  We had a great one... :)   Yours Faithfully in Christ, Dr John Paul Moses, Titus and Mom Mrs.  Jasmine Moses”


Continue to pray that God will make it possible for ORH to finance these wonderful evangelistic clinics.


Please pray for Dr. John Paul’s father, J.D. Moses.  ORH is attempting to obtain surgery for him here in the United States.  He has served the Lord in the most severe circumstances of opposition and persecution without wavering.
