HURRICANE FLORENCE AND LAOS


Saturday, November 10, 2018



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE FLORENCE

Pastor Gene Tilly, Liberty Baptist Church, Wilmington, NC, wrote the following to ORH.  ORH through your gifts was able to provide Pastor Tilly and his wife $4000.00.  ORH is thankful to be able to have a part.



“I want to thank you for your kind gift to my wife and me. Hurricane Florence did over 20000.00 damage to our home. We were out of the home for nearly 6 weeks due to the damage and the mold. We have been able to have to damaged drywall, insulation and mold removed. Hopefully, with the help of your generous gift we can now begin the roof and drywall reconstruction in our living room, dinning room and bath. We had to completely gut the main bathroom.  Work is being lined up now to do the needed repairs. Your kindness assured us that we would be able to complete the necessary repairs.  Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts.  Pastor Gene and a Wanda Tilly”



Continue to pray for the needs in the Florence and Michael impact area.



Laos Flooding Victims

Missionary Derek Thomas sent word of the need of these Christian brothers and sisters in Laos.  The monsoons have caused great flooding.  Derek sent pictures of rice distributed through our first gift of $3000.00.



“Jan, Below (on PDF) are pictures of rice being distributed in southern Laos from the funds that ORH gave. I’m traveling there late next week.  Thank you for your concern for souls in Laos.  Lord bless.  Derek”



ORH has sent another $2000.00 for the efforts there to reclaim the homes and provide food where needed.  We are thankful for Derek Thomas and his love for the Laotians.

HURRICANE FLORENCE, SAIPAN


Thursday, November 8, 2018




Dear Friends,



HURRICANE FLORENCE

Pastor David Robinette, Bible Baptist Church, in Wilmington, NC wrote the following.  ORH through your giving sent $4700.00 to help his congregation after Hurricane Florence.



“Dear Jan,  Thank you for your unique ministry and for your prayerful consideration in regards to the needs of our church.  We are still assessing the damage through a trusted contractor, and are awaiting Church Mutual’s consideration of their addendum to the scope of work results.  The sanctuary roof replacement far exceeds the current settlement.  We are praying that Church Mutual will agree to the contractor’s estimate.  We proceeded last week with the repair to the roof of the fellowship hall.  Water intrusion in that area damaged the ceilings in the guest house (prophet’s chamber), a utility room, and a bathroom.  We are now making those interior repairs.  Total cost of that project was $4700.00.  We paid that out of pocket, and it will apply toward our $5000.00 deductible.  Your gracious gift will allow us to continue immediately with the interior repairs to that area.  Thank you again for your ministry toward our work.  It has been and will continue to be a blessing to our people.”



Continue to pray for the needs in the Florence impact area.



Saipan

Dr. Christian Wei sent the following report for us to read.  Please download the PDF to see his damage.  Operation Renewed Hope by faith has sent $3000.00 to help the ministry immediately.



“One of the Reporter reported that typhoon Yutu is the strongest typhoon to hit US territory in the US history.  According to the report that Yutu is the Category 5 typhoon, which is the worse typhoon ever in CNMI history, with disastrous winds of 180 mph and gusting to 200 mph.  Yutu caused great damage for the whole island of Saipan and there won’t be power and running water for at least half year. EUCON and her ministries in Saipan face challenge to rebuild but we are trusting the Lord to rebuild it back, brick by brick and book by book.  Thank you for all your prayers, our people are all safe and ready to rebuild.”

SAIPAN, UGANDA, HURRICANE UPDATE


Friday, November 2, 2018




Dear Friends,



Saipan – Dr. Christian Wei

ORH has committed to this good ministry, EUCON University, $3000.00.   The ministry was struck hard by category 5, Typhoon Yutu.  Please download the PDF from Dr. Wei about this devastating typhoon.  Dr. Wei wrote the following.



   “Dear Friends:  Many of you have shown your love and concern about the catastrophic damages of typhoon Yutu done.  First of all, by God’s grace, all lives are safe.  We are praising the Lord for that and thanking God for you to pray for our people to go through the terrible night.

   Now after a long night of calamitous attack by the winds of Yutu, the scene of Saipan in the morning is horrible.   Please see the attached file for some pictures.  Our school campus were ruined and some of the staff and faculty houses are also destroyed. The facility of Saipan as a whole is torn apart and it will take years to rebuild it back.

   However, after the decrease of the winds, our students, staff and faculty started rebuilding our campus and ministries.  Please pray that the Lord will provide materials for us to rebuild many roofs and walls and other damages.

   We will update you more about the progress.  Thank you so much for your kindness to pray for us.  God bless.  Humbly in Christ,  Christian Wei”



Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ on the Island of Saipan.



Uganda

We are so thankful for the preparatory work of Keith Stensaas for future evangelistic medical clinics in Uganda.  Our next clinic will be an area where Pastor Fredrick is working.  For him to prepare for the next clinic, Pastor Fredrick needed a motorcycle.  Your gifts made it possible.  Pastor Fredrick wrote the following.



“Jan Milton - Operation Renewed Hope, First and foremost, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude from the bottom of heart for the gift of a new motor cycle you have bought for me to use and reach the lost world with the gospel of hope.

May the almighty God abundantly bless you so much.  I and my wife Sarah, plus the Children we are very thankful and praying for you every day.  Sincerely, Pastor Kasajja Fredrick.  Thank you.”



Download the PDF to see the new motorcycle.  Pray for this good man of God.



Hurricane Florence and Michael

Michael Volmer wrote the following.



“Pastor Cuthbertson from Liberty Baptist Church in Pine Bluff, Akansas is coming this next week to Havelock, S.C. to deliver 50,000 John/Romans bibles (KJV) to Pastor Kohr (Freedom Baptist).  If you are interested in receiving any of them, he can be contacted….  For those of you down in Wilmington and S.C.  Please don’t hesitate to ask, we’ll figure out a way to get them to you….”

HURRICANE UPDATE


Saturday, October 27, 2018




Dear Friends,



Hurricane Florence and Michael          

Karl and Cathy Steudl from Emmanuel Independent Baptist Church in Winchester, Va, have been very busy in the Hurricane Florence impact area, Grace Baptist, Wilmington, NC, and Anchor Baptist, Little River, SC.  They have a commercial de-humidifier which will dry a home, so the work of restoration may begin.



ORH is very thankful for their efforts and rejoices to pay their expenses to do this work.  The following are two messages from them.



“Good morning Bro. Jan. Karl and I have dried-out two homes so far as well as much dry wall removal.  We just spoke with pastor Karl Wood and will work with him this Thursday and Friday.  The pictures are of the two homes we have worked on so far here in Wilmington, NC.”



“Good morning Bro. Jan. Karl and I are in Little River, SC, drying-out the gentleman's home for Pastor Carl Wood with Anchor Baptist.”



Pray that we can help people rebuild both in Wilmington and Little River.



Mike Volmer sent this message about Conway, SC.



“Grand Strand Baptist Church just west of Myrtle Beach made it through the hurricane and was pretty heavily involved with relief efforts.  Their Pastor pointed me to Wendy Shelley as his point of contact.  They were closing-down their distribution center when I got there Tuesday.  From speaking with her, they were able to lead over 60 people to Christ during this time.  With regards to long term assistance, they had 6 families that were in need of help.  I left Brother Milton’s forms with them and began looking westward past Conway.”



Brother Volmer has been a blessing as he travels finding those in need.  Pray we will have enough funds to help these families that he has found.
