HURRICANE FLORENCE


Sunday, September 30, 2018




Dear Friends,



Hurricane Florence



Pastor Monty Kaufman, youth pastor at Grace Baptist of Wilmington, NC, wrote the following note to ORH.  He has been working very hard to help the church, church families, and the community of Wilmington.



     “It’s been an emotional roller coaster this week, but the Lord has enabled us to accomplish much and help many people in our church and community. As you know, every day is filled with gospel appointments!  Our own church/school facilities are still being dried out as there was much water damage.  In fact we are meeting outside for our Sunday services (which isn't necessarily a bad thing.)

     Thank you for asking and all you have done for us”



Pray for the coming week at Grace Baptist.  Durham Rescue Mission plans to bring a mobile cook station to feed a recovering community close to Grace.  People are just now able to get back to their homes.  They are also distributing relief supplies to the community.  Nothing like a cup of cold water in Jesus name.



Also, ORH thanks Friendship Baptist Church, Raleigh, NC, for their efforts to supply relief goods to the work at Grace.  Another load will be going this week.



Please pray for Mission Air Care and Anchor Baptist Missions for supplying trucks of relief supplies to Grace and around the state.  These are tireless efforts from good men of God.



The work continues in areas around Lake Waccamaw through Pastor Ledbetter and Victory Baptist Church in Whiteville, NC.  Pastor Ledbetter opened his church for food distribution.  ORH contacted Mission Air Care and Anchor Baptist Missions for relief supplies which they graciously supplied and delivered.



Pastor Ledbetter’s church opened for distribution on Saturday, September 29.  He wrote the following when ORH inquired about the distribution.



“Great! 73 folks came for food & supplies…Quartet from Ambassador Baptist College came in at 2:30 and got to help.  Final count 80 people came for help! Amen!”



Please download the PDF to see the work at Victory Baptist.  Thank God for our relief ministries and churches working together for the communities of North Carolina.



Thank God for a financial gift from a major architectural firm in Raleigh, NC.  Thank you, Pastor Chuck Woodruff and Catawba Springs Christian Church for your gracious help in this effort.
