Maria Impact Area Report


Friday, October 6, 2017



Dear Friends,



ORH thanks all those who have helped with the work in the Maria impact area..



ORH thanks the pilots, David Spangler, Mike Coupe, and Tim Langford,

who have flown constantly for the work in Puerto Rico, Anguilla, and Dominica.



ORH thanks those who made it possible to be in the air consistently, Pastor Yadin Rodriguez and Pastor Pedro Da Cunha, Iglesias Bautista Christiana of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.



ORH thanks Mr. and Mrs. Ken Kirkland of Caribbean Lighthouse Radio on the island of Antigua for obtaining and loading planes to Dominica.



ORH thanks Bill Pfaunmiller and Pastor Mark Worsham for their patience and work in Ponce, PR.  They have been working tirelessly receiving and distributing supplies and equipment.



ORH thanks all of you have provided the money for the work in the Maria impact area.



This message just came from the Challenger family on Dominica.  So far, ORH with the help of Mr. and Mrs. Kirkland have delivered 2800 pounds of food to the Challengers ministering in Dominica to the Carib people.



“Good Morning.  My brother Tim spoke with dad for about 3 minutes yesterday. He wanted us to express his gratitude.  The first supplies that were sent last week was the first of any relief to reach their area.  The needs are huge there are so many people starving he said.  Government aid has not reach the area yet so many people have been looking to the church for help.  We really appreciate all you have been doing.”



ORH hopes to provide more food and supplies into Dominica.  Mike Coupe is going there this week-end with his plane.



The following is a report of some of the basic activities in the DR which have made it possible for us to work in the Maria Impact area.  Pastor Yadin writes.

ORH also received a phone call from Anguilla today from a graduate of Carolina Bible College who has a church on the island.  Mike Coupe flew a mission into him with food and supplies.  He said he was so grateful for the help, and they were distributing food from their church to the people on the island.  He asked could we send more food to them and a generator.  Pray we can get a flight into them again.  Just not enough twin engine planes to fly.



Pray that all the workers and pilots remain safe.
