Urgent Appeal Puerto Rico, Dr. Johnny Daniels






                            
Above is The College Building Destruction


Dear Friends,



ORH received this from Dr. Johnny Daniels, Calvary Baptist Tabernacle, Carolina, Puerto Rico.  The church and educational buildings were badly damaged in Hurricane Maria.  The Bible college was so badly damaged, that it had to be demolished and removed.  Dr. Daniels wrote the following.



“Dear Brother Jan:  We know that God has used you to help this ministry survive.  As per our recent conversation, I am sending you a draft description of the ministry needs and how the bank is working with us at this time.  Feel free to add or delete as you deem correct.

     The bank is not able to totally forgive the loan; however, they have made a commitment to reconstruct our loan so that we can remain open.  Therefore, all of the reconstruction of the buildings is on our expense.  We estimate that the amount needed to maintain the college open and buy materials to repair the day school and church buildings is $100,000.00.  The cost of the materials needed for the roof is going to be about $35,000.00.

     We are also attaching 2 video presentations which you may use as you deem proper.  Thank you for all you do.”



The church has maintained the Christian school and college schedule even during this very difficult time.  Operation Renewed Hope is going to help this need.  Please do not send money to ORH for this very important need. 



If you would help Calvary Baptist Tabernacle restore their ministry buildings, please, send a donation to Calvary Baptist Tabernacle.  This can be given through Macedonia World Baptist Missions.



Please make a check payable to Macedonia World Baptist Missions.  Please send check to Macedonia World Baptist Missions, P.O. Box 519, Braselton, GA 30517.  Designate the check as continuous support or a one-time gift.  List the Project for support as Calvary Baptist Tabernacle Restoration, Dr. Johnny Daniels.  A tax-deductible receipt will be returned to you by Macedonia. 



Calvary Baptist Tabernacle needs at least 100 churches to send $1000.00 each to help them recover from Hurricane Maria.



Contact the business director of Calvary Baptist Tabernacle, Edgar Hernandez, directly at 787-407-8023 for any financial questions about Calvary Baptist Tabernacle.

India and Harvey






Sunday, November 19, 2017

Dear Friends,

INDIA

ORH thanks God that brothers and sisters around the world share the same heart for ministry.  They minister the mercy of God both physically and spiritually.  Dr. John Paul Moses and his team of workers in Bangalore, India, are partners demonstrating that our God is Love.  Please read the following from Dr. John Paul and see the PDF.


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

     We have returned safely back to Bangalore from a fruitful evangelistic medical Ministry. Please find the PDF attached to this email, which contains pictures and descriptions of what the Lord did in Hubli Prison and Hubli Gadag Lepers Colony.

     We held these clinics for two days in Hubli Prison and thereafter moved onto Hubli Gadag Lepers Colony to provide medical and Gospel aid.

     Thank God for ORH and the sacrifice and the provision that was made possible to conduct these clinics. I pray, appeal and plead that God will continue to sustain this medical ministry.

      We were able to minister in Hubli Prison, took care of 186 inmates, most of them under trials for murders, gang violence, dacoity, theft and robbery. Open air evangelism was possible and personal evangelism done genuinely.  Bibles were distributed, Thank God for the transformation of lives with the physical and spiritual help rendered. 6 people in the prison made decisions for Christ and 8 of them in the leper’s colony.  I am so thankful for the Lord for my beloved wife, parents, my siblings, and family and the entire team, volunteers, for their support.

     We are fully committed for the cause of Christ in our heathen country. God is doing great wonders and miracles through works which otherwise are impossible to accomplish. May God bless each one of you name by name and bless your hearts for your love and compassion for the people of India.  We love you, Yours faithfully in Christ, Dr John Paul Moses

Ps: Elizabeth, Mom and Dad and Titus send best wishes and thankfulness unto you all.”



Thank God that He continues to offer ORH opportunities to demonstrate his mercy, love, and grace.  The money necessary to do this VMA Clinic, $1850.00, came from those who support our efforts around the world.  Thank you and may our God bless you for thinking of ORH and its partners.



HARVEY

On November 11th, Pastor Will Cover and Arise Baptist Church conducted a celebration service “Hope after Harvey.”  Pastor Will brought pastors and members of churches which were damaged during Hurricane Harvey.  Testimonies, music, and rejoicing in the Lord were enjoyed.  After the event, a Texas barbeque was provided by Pastor Will’s church for all.  ORH was thankful to be included in this service, and for the expressions of thanks by those giving testimony of God’s use of ORH in their lives and churches.



Thank God for Colonial Hills Baptist Church in Indianapolis Indiana, which following the praise service, sent a team to plan a work team’s arrival from their church with Pastor Cover.  The team will help families and churches still trying to climb out of the disaster.  Colonial Hills has long been a great partner with ORH.



Val Verde Baptist Church in Groves, TX, has been sent $8000.00 to help a teacher in their church school replace her automobile which was destroyed in the Hurricane.  ORH is thankful for God’s servants who in spite of great difficulty continue to be a vital part of their church ministry.  For Pastor Nick Dignan and his people who have long been faithful, ORH desires the blessings of God.



God bless,

Puerto Rico - Bill Pfaunmiller

ORH is always thankful for those selfless people who help the hurting.   Brother Bill Pfaunmiller is one of those people.  His work in the early days of Maria was exactly what was needed to get disaster relief to people.  He is now continuing to send reports.



One pastor he helped was Pastor Velasquez in Cidra, PR.  In the PDF, Bill sent a pictorial report about the work with the pastor and his church.  It was through your gifts of love that the work was accomplished.  Please pray for the many who remain in need.

Rejoice in Uganda


Monday, March 26, 2018



Dear Friends,



Thank you so much for your help and support with the work of medical missions around the world. 



In October of 2017, ORH conducted a medical clinic in Uganda with Keith and Sally Stensaas.  One of the clinics was held in a town on the border of Tanzania, Mutukula.  It was a great blessing and many accepted Christ. 



To follow up the new converts Brother Sebyoto, church planter, needed transportation.  Through your gracious giving ORH was able to buy a motorcycle for brother Sebyoto.  Keith Stensaas sent a message about the work and God’s rich blessing.



“Brother Jan,  I just returned yesterday from Mutukula, the place where we had our last clinic.  We saw two saved and three baptized!!  ORH recently bought a motorcycle for Brother Sebyoto.  I can assure you that he is using it to further the Kingdom of God.  God is greatly blessing down there and the church is growing.  He would not be able to do what he is doing without the help of that motorcycle.  Once again, he sends his thanks and appreciation.  I have attached a picture of the people that were in the church service yesterday.  God bless.  Praying for you!!  Keith”



This is the joy of all that ORH does.  ORH rejoices to help people with their medical care needs, physical needs,  experience people responding to the Gospel; and then, seeing the churches grow with the ministry of God’s faithful servants after the clinics.  Pray for Keith and Brother Sebyoto that God will prosper their steps.  Also, pray that ORH will be able to keep sending the funds necessary to do the work of God in clinic sites.



Please down load the PDF attached to this report and rejoice at what you see.



If you wish to give by credit or debit card, please go to www.operationrenewedhope.org and choose “Network for Good.”  Please designate the gift for your specific purpose using “My preference is” then stipulate your preference.

Dear Friends,



Harvey – Victory Bible Baptist Church



ORH is so thankful to partner with Greg Rife, Restore Ministries.  He is currently working in a church in Vidor, TX.  ORH has sent $15000.00 to help the church.  Also, $2500.00 has been sent to help Greg repair his truck which is much used in the work of restoration.  Greg sent us the following message.



“Jan, just wanted to give you a quick update on the progress of our Harvey response here in Southeast Texas. We have completed our work in the homes that we had committed to restoring and have been working on repairing the damage to Victory Bible Baptist Church in Vidor, Texas for the past several weeks. The funds have been raised and the groups have been scheduled to complete the repairs to all of the classrooms, offices, nurseries, bathrooms, gymnasium and the auditorium. We are still short about $20,000 on our fund raising to repair the parsonage/missions house. Spirits are high and it has been a pleasure working side by side with the members of Victory to repair their facilities. God is good! We appreciate your support and prayers. In His Service,

Greg Rife”



Harvey – Arise Baptist Church



Colonial Hills Baptist Church has been a wonderful partner with ORH to help people in time of disaster.  Again, their congregation has been able to send a repair group led by Herb Gaines.  ORH supplied money for travel, housing, and food so they could help the Boyd family return to their home.  Thank God for Pastor Will Cover, Arise Baptist Church, for directing the need to Colonial Hills Baptist Church.



“Jan, Thank you so very much for the support in this project.  It was a tremendous blessing to partner with ORH and Arise Baptist Church to minister to the Boyd family in this time of need.  Word today is that with the help of a couple of men in the church at Arise Baptist, the house will be ready for final inspection by the first of next week.  We were so close prior to having to leave, however very grateful for Pastor Cover and these dedicated men to finish the task.  Lord-willing, Larry and Angela Boyd will be in their new home officially next week....  We will look forward to another time to serve together as the Lord permits.  God bless you. Herb Gaines, Facilities Superintendent, Colonial Hills Baptist Church”



Puerto Rico



Water Filters



Sheila Sierts and her husband operate a water filtration company in Bonita Springs, FL.   While living in Puerto Rico, they attended North Point Baptist Church, Pastor Orlando Rivera.  When they decided to send water filtration systems to the devastated island, Operation Renewed Hope offered to pay the $2000.00 for the shipping for the water filters. 



Sheila wrote the following to explain the work of distributing the free gravity-drip water filters.   These filters can be used repeatedly with simple cleaning procedures.  Sheila writes.



     “Water filters have been distributed to 19 municipalities and reaching numerous surrounding communities impacting individual’s residences, nursing homes, churches, and convents. Our team is currently focusing on areas of the island without power, those with limited road access, and critical medical needs. Our efforts in Puerto Rico will continue, as our work is not done.

     The 1000 water filters were broken up into two shipments in November and December and are documented on our website….”



Malave’s Home



Paula Van Natta is a missionary working with the deaf in Puerto Rico with Baptist World Mission.    She sent us the needs of a family with whom she works.  The Malave family needed a new roof, and the roof is very close to being completed.  Operation Renewed Hope sent money to help this family with a new roof.  Please see the pictures on the PDF.  Thank you Paula for your good heart.



Dominica



Loren and Tim Challenger are sons of Hutson Challenger, pastor in Dominica.  The email below will tell what they are attempting to do.



     “Thanks Jan for your continuous help with this process.  Here is a breakdown of what we are trying to achieve.

Building Material:

24 windows needs to be replaced. ( school/Church)

6 Doors school/church. We are looking to use aluminum doors in the future.

( It prevents swelling from the rain and winds.)

200  20 ft 20 Gauge galvanize

     All income is directed to purchase or shipping which is an approximate $6500 for an 18 ft container to Dominica. I hope this helps with the scope of what we are trying to achieve. Thanks again for all of your support. Tim.Challenger.”



Operation Renewed Hope has sent $5000.00 to help them in this project.  There is so much left to do in their community and church, Lighthouse Baptist Church.  Please go to http://geographyonamission.com/lighthouse-christian-academy/ to read about their ministry.

India and Lebanon

Friday, February 16, 2018

Dear Friends,

India

Thank God for the work of Dr. John Paul Moses in Bangalore, India, as he continues to conduct medical clinics through the ORH Village Medical Assistant program.  Daniel Jones, PA, is director of ORH VMA clinics and sent this report to us from Dr. John Paul.

Bro Jan, attached is the clinic report form and another report with pictures for the VMA clinic in India on 2-4-18.    60 patients were seen, and 21 people made public professions of faith. Daniel Jones.
 
Please download the PDF from Dr. John Paul about his last VMA clinic in an HIV colony.  By your consistent support, ORH was able to send over $1500.00 to finance the work of this VMA clinic.

Lebanon

This was a communication that came from Sam Stricklin about our work in Lebanon.  .

     “Dear Jan,  I spoke to Karim Dahdah yesterday about the matters we discussed on the phone: 1. Funds for diesel fuel for Syrian refugees, 2. Clinic in the future with a few U.S. doctors, 3. List of medicines.

     Today, I started the transfer of $2000 for diesel fuel and notified Karim that the funds are in the process of being transferred for this purpose. In addition, he was in agreement with a few doctors coming from the U.S. to hold a clinic....  Sam”

ORH sent the $2000.00 for the Lebanon work.

In addition to the funds for diesel fuel Operation Renewed Hope sponsored a VMA clinic through the Gospel Baptist Church.  Pastor Dahdah used a Lebanese doctor for the clinic.   ORH provided $1000.00 for this VMA clinic.  It is hoped that this will be a prelude to many more VMA clinics in hard to enter countries.  Sam wrote the following.

     “Dear Bro. Jan, Thank you for your contribution of $1000 designated for the Lebanon Clinic costs.

     I had previously advanced these funds to Pastor Karim in Zahle, Lebanon in anticipation of this reimbursement.

     I appreciate your burden to help alleviate the plight of Syrian refugees in Lebanon and to get the gospel to them as well.  Sincerely,  Sam Stricklin”

ORH will be sending $1500.00 for medicines for the Syrian refugees being ministered to by Gospel Baptist Church, Zahle, Lebanon.  The pastor of the church is Karim Dahdah.  Please pray for their ministry.

Harvey – Houston TX


Saturday, February 10, 2018

Dear Friends,

ORH wants to thank all those who donated to help ORH provide for many people and churches.  The donations have come from California, First Baptist of Pinole, to New York, Faith Baptist of Corona.  All living between California and New York, in Canada, and elsewhere, thank you for helping Texas, Florida, and the Caribbean.

ORH prays to stay faithful to the gospel and good works for all men everywhere.

Harvey – Houston TX

Thank God for Herb Gaines and Colonial Hills Baptist Church, Indianapolis, IN, Pastor Chuck Phelps.  The church sent a team of men to Houston to repair a flood-damaged home.  Arise Baptist Church, Pastor Will Cover, in conjunction with ORH, provided Colonial Hills with the information about the family in the home.  With your donations, ORH was able to provide the hotel accommodations for this team.

The team had to leave Houston Friday morning the 9th of February at 3 am to go home.  Because the job could not be completed, part of the team will return the following week. Thank you all for such self-less dedication to the Lord and the love of others.

Puerto Rico

Bill Pfaunmiller just returned from a follow-up visit for ORH to Puerto Rico.  The funds for this trip came through funds supplied by your donations to ORH.  While in Puerto Rico, Bill was able to help many families and churches.  ORH was able to send $10,000.00 to churches and families in need.  The church that Bill attends, Harvest Bible Church, Lancaster, PA, Pastor John Walters, sent $10,000.00 to help even more churches and families.  The follow-up ministry effort in January supplied $20,000.00 to real needs that could not be met except with your help.  God bless you, and thank you.

Dominica

Pray for Loren Challenger as he works to help the people on the island.  ORH has offered $5000.00 for tin roofing.  Loren is working on this possibility.  ORH is joining with others to possibly buy a saw mill for the fallen trees on the island.

Uganda/India Update


Wednesday, January 24, 2018






Dear Friends,



Uganda



ORH had the pleasure of conducting medical clinics in Uganda in October 2017.  The results were fantastic with good crowds and many conversions.  On this clinic, ORH discovered two good solid believers in Christ, Brother Robert and Brother Sebyoto.  Brother Robert will work with Keith Stensaas in the villages.  ORH will send $100.00 per month for his support.



Brother Sebyoto is a true church planter.  He goes to a new place and starts a church meeting, then later a pastor will come and take the church.  He is doing this in Mutukula where we did our clinic to help him get new converts to start a church.  ORH realizing his work requires transportation sent $1000.00 to purchase a motorcycle for him.  Pray the church in Mutukula will see many good days and soon ORH can send money to help build a new church.



Please read Keith Stensaas response to the information that ORH was sending $100.00 a month for Brother Robert.



     “Brother Jan, That is great news and I know it will be a tremendous asset to the village ministry.  The man’s name is Bwambale Robert who I will be hiring.  Great guy.  You will like him. 

     Yesterday, I was finally able to get that motorcycle purchased for Brother Sebyoto.  He sends his heartfelt gratitude.  It will greatly assist our ministry in Mutukula.  I have attached a couple of pictures for you. 

     Let me know if there is anything else that you need.  Keith”



Thank you for helping ORH to send this money.  We must send this money to support the work of missionaries around the world.



INDIA

ORH has the privilege of working in India.  Dr. John Paul Moses conducts VMA clinics with prisons, leper colonies, and villages.  During these clinics the gospel is given to hundreds who need the medical care most desperately.  He received a post card from one such person who heard of the clinics.  Please, read Dr. John Paul’s email message.



“Dear Uncle Jan and Dr Daniel's, It so heartwarming to receive a post card from a leprosy patient. I do not know how he got our information but he has made an attempt to contact us. I do not know where this colony is located. Probably the word must have gotten out about our work among the poor and leper colonies.  Someone who is educated must have helped this person write this post card in English.  As I read through this and even now as I write unto you, May God have mercy on all these needy people.  May God provide to meet their needs. Surely, I can imagine the magnitude of this request, he has written unto us with hope. And now I request you to pray for this man and also for us so that God would enable us to go there with medicines and supplies, most importantly with an eternal gift which is the Gospel….  Yours faithfully in Christ, JP”



Dr. John Paul needs and automobile badly to continue his traveling clinics.  His present car is not reliable to reach the people.  ORH has offered him a $5000.00 matching gift.  Currently, the Lord has given him $3500.00 toward the matching gift.  He will use the total toward a down payment for a used car.

HOUSTON, HAITI, DOMINICA






Thursday, January 11, 2018



Dear Friends,



Houston

God is very good to supply ORH, through you, funds to help God’s people and the communities in the disaster areas.  In the Houston area, ORH is still attempting to help those in need.  ORH has sent $15,000.00 to Victory Bible Baptist Church of Vidor, Tx.   Pastor Carl Green wrote the following telling of the church needs for use of the money.



“Dear Bro. Milton,  This email is in response to our phone conversation this afternoon.  Let me begin by thanking you and Operation Restored Hope for your interest in our church's rebuilding program.  Our church suffered major flood damage during Hurricane Harvey.  In our three buildings we had anywhere from 12" to 18" of water.  Because of the amount of water we were forced to remove all sheet rock up to the four foot mark.  We also lost all carpet, tile, cabinets, pews, doors, baseboards, door trim, wooden desks, changing tables, rocking chairs, baby cribs, and all wooden shelving.  We also lost most of our library and many of our hymnals.  Some of the components of our sound system were also lost in the flood.  We estimate that between our church, parsonage, and gymnasium that it will take anywhere from $150,000 to $200,000 to restore our facilities.  Per your request we are attaching pictures to show the immediate damage and our progress in restoration….Our address is Victory Bible Baptist Church, 18347 IH 10, Vidor, TX  77662. My cell phone is 409-673-3646 and email is pastorcdgreen@aol.com.

     If you need any additional information, please feel free to contact me.  I hope this email is sufficient to provide you the needed information you requested.  Thank you again for your interest in helping us.  Sincerely, Carl D. Green, Pastor, Victory Bible Baptist Church”



ORH hopes to send $5000.00 more dollars to do 10% of the higher amount for the costs to restore the church.  Also, pray for Greg Rife of Restore Ministries who is attempting to rebuild the church.  His truck has developed problems which will require over $5000.00 of repair work.  Greg needs the truck very badly.



Haiti

ORH has the privilege of working with the best people on earth in ministry.  Tom and Sarah Bennett are two of those people.  Their ministry Mission for Haiti located in Greenville, SC is a complete encouragement for our efforts in Haiti.  Below you will read the message of a young man who is in ministerial training at Bob Jones University concerning his brother.  Christy Holshouser, NP, head nurse for ORH operations, working through the Bennett’s was able to help this young preacher and his brother with $1,000.00 of disposable colostomy supplies.



“Hi, Pr. !, I am writing you to thank you very much for the most significant help you have provided for my brother-in-law. Mrs. Bennett has already delivered the greater part of the supplies that were purchased, and of those Miss Christy has facilitated us to get even free of charge. May the Lord take good note of the charitable heart you have proven in regard of our need. Thank you again. I want to take advantage of the opportunity to announce you that were are working on the process of bringing him to the US in the coming May for my graduation ceremony, and also in the idea he might get in touch with some American doctor who could possibly reverse the colostomy. So, we would appreciate any ideas of yours in this respect, as to your awareness of any doctor or way that could help. Attached are pictures of Mrs. Bennett delivering the supplies to him, Noé Metéllus.



ORH received this email from Noe, and he also called to thank all involved for the efforts and supplies.



“Greetings, Mr. Jean Milton. Many blessings, I am Brother Noé météllus. I am the brother-in-law, brother serge jacmel. I am writing to let you know that I received it from the colostomy. Thank you very much my brother, I told brother serge to share with you the Picture again thank you very much. happy New Year!”



God is always good giving as the need arises through his people for the people groups of the world.



Dominica

Pray for Loren Challenger.  He is attempting to obtain about 500 sheets of “galvanized” to rebuild roofs on the Island.  ORH has offered to pay the shipping costs if he can get the roofing.  This is a bold and very costly effort.  ORH does not have the money to buy the roofing.  Loren is also thinking of buying a portable saw mill to mill the fallen trees, so people will have building materials on the Island.  He is industrious and innovational.  Pray for him; so few people have such a dynamic spirit.  He and his family have been missionaries on the Island for years.
