HURRICANE DORIAN AND UGANDA


Tuesday, October 15, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE DORIAN

PRAISE THE LORD!!!



THANK GOD, WE HAVE WORKMAN FLYING TO FREEPORT TO HELP REBUILD.  TIM PLEDGER WAS ABLE TO CONTACT STEPHEN PHELPS WHO HAS AGREED TO LEAD A TEAM OF WORKMEN.



Stephen wrote the following:



“We want to go back to the Bahamas on November 4, Monday until November 9, 2019 Saturday. I will be bringing 5 men in total.”



ORH was able to purchase over $4000.00 of building supplies through your giving which will be used by the building crew.  Mike Coupe will fly them to Freeport in his Piper Aztec.  ORH is thankful for all the pilots who have flown missions in Dorian.



Uganda

VMA Clinic

ORH is enjoying the work that is being accomplished by the VMA clinics.  This is a report by Keith Stensaas about one of those clinics.  Please read the results.



“I’ll send the official form but wanted you to know how things went. It was a great first clinic, and I am looking forward to the next one. Here are the stats:

2 doctors / 1 nurse for pharmacy , 91 patients treated, 25 wellness packs given out, 31 salvation decisions.  On Sunday we had several in church from visiting the clinic. Saw 7 more saved and 7 baptized.  Good clinic all around.  Church was really uplifted!!Btw, just so you know, I still have not received the VMA funds. 😀  Keith”



Pastor Zebedee

We were able to do a clinic in Kasese, Uganda, with Keith Stensaas’ brother, Matt.  One of the pastors that helped with that clinic was Pastor Zebedee.  He brought many of his church members for help.  He wrote the following.



“…we lost our church member aged 67 years, and he died due to high blood pressure and diabetes, but praise the Lord he got saved during the clinic that you offered to us when you were at Kasese, And the family appreciated so much because of the medicine he received because it's what had helped him for all this time. He received both physical and spiritual medicine, he is now in heaven.”



To God be the Glory!

DORIAN AND IMELDA


Friday, September 20, 2019



Dear Friends,



PLEASE DO NOT FORGET THE CHURCHES IN HOUSTON WHO HAVE BEEN DAMAGED BY THE IMELDA.  ORH IS IN CONTACT WITH TWO CHURCHES THERE.



HURRICANE DORIAN

PRAISE THE LORD!!!



“So, once again let me tell you. A heartfelt thank you!”



These words close a very loving thank you from Pastor Bain.  I am sure his expression of thanks represents Pastor Woodside and all who have been helped.



ORH takes joy in sending this special “thank you” to all who have helped in the Dorian effort, Flyn4God, Anchor Baptist Mission, Hearts with Hands, Mission Air Care, Landmark Baptist Church, First Baptist Church of Westwood Lakes, Catawba Springs Christian Church, Tri-City Baptist Church, all the pilots, and many more who have contributed to the efforts in Dorian..



The efforts are not over.  ORH has purchased building supplies from Lowes and will ship them to Tabernacle Baptist Church.  Pastor Guy Altizer with Windows of Heaven has now secured two men to help with reconstruction.  Pray that the supplies can be shipped in time for the workers to help rebuild.



Pray we secure pilots with planes to continue our shipping of supplies.  We need twin-engine planes.



Pastor Bain requested 15 kindergarten desks with chairs and 50 kindergarten chairs.  Later, he wrote.



“keyboard…, pulpit..., communion table….”

“We will need about 300 Chairs for church...the chairs and legs are rusted.”

“Good day bro hope you had restful day...can we get 7 teacher desks and 7 teacher chairs”

“Need about 8 air stress mattresses”



Please, contact, if you can help with these items.  You may call ORH at 910-987-5072 or email jan@operationrenewedhope.org.



Pray for others there on Grand Bahamas in need that Tabernacle can help.

HURRICANE DORIAN AND HOUSTON AREA


Friday, September 20, 2019





Dear Friends,





PRAISE THE LORD!!!

This week our pilots were able to fly 30 missions.  A.J. James, Mike Grimes, and Tim Lankford were in the air constantly.  Pastor Sheppard of Tri-City Baptist Church, Port Charlotte, FL, supplied necessary support people to stage and load the planes, so they could turn around quickly.  Please download the PDF for more information.



ORH needs pilots for next week.  Please call 910-987-5072.  An application will be sent immediately to become a part of the Air Hope family. 



Dave Spangler, Flyn4God, and Mike Gentile, Anchor Baptist Mission combined efforts to make sure the planes kept flying.  Dave set up a charge account for fuel with the FBO at Sebring which allowed the pilots to fuel and fly.  Dave worked with the airport officials to make sure we had the ability to properly store supplies.  We are thankful for all who participated.



Hearts with Hands and Anchor Baptist combined to move a tractor-trailer of supplies to Sebring.  Hearts with Hands supplied the supplies, and Anchor Baptist Mission supplied a trailer with semi-truck to haul the load.  Their cooperation was the source of materials for our air shipments.



Special orders did not upset the team in Sebring.  During the chaos of moving 1000’s of pounds of relief goods, they were able to find and fly all the special requests.  The pilots even brought back paint chips, so we could fly matching paint for the church walls.  The church is now having Sunday services and with the new painted walls school will start on Monday.



Anchor Baptist Mission has 402 more boxes of food supplies.  They also sent a K-Loader through Lighthouse Baptist Church in Panama City, FL which was struck by Hurricane Michael.

Pray our coalition will have the ability to greatly impact the islands.  Every box distributed from Hearts with Hands had a Gospel of John and Romans.  Gospel tracts were also in the boxes.



Continue to pray for the Mission Air Care pilot whose plane was damaged on landing.  Thank God no one was injured.  Pray very hard we will be successful and fight crews will be safe.



If you know of a person or church in need in the Houston area, please contact ORH at information in letterhead.

HURRICANE DORIAN


HURRICANE DORIAN








Saturday, September 14, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE DORIAN


Please, continue to pray for the pilots and planes which fly in our coalition of organizations.  A plane had a mishap last night landing in Sebring, FL, after a very successful mission to Tabernacle Baptist Church in Freeport.  The plane was damaged and will be out of service.  The pilots are safe with no injury. 



Hearts with Hands, Dr. Greg Lentz, has prepared another load of relief supplies for our flights.  Anchor Baptist will truck the supplies next week.  Our coalition will have the ability to greatly impact the islands.



Pastor Randy Barton with Anchor Baptist Mission is supplying a skid-steer with forks and a truck with 500 boxes of supplies.  That should arrive soon.



Landmark Baptist Church has delivered 207 boxes of relief goods for Tabernacle Baptist Church, our depot in Freeport.



Pastor Norris Bain, Tabernacle Baptist Church, sent pictures of the planes being unloaded and the distribution of the supplies.  The flights have provided a pressure washer, gallons of paint, and replacement electrical outlets.  The church is going to be restored for Sunday Services.



Our prayers are answered for pilots next week.  We will have 3 planes flying all next week.



ORH is thankful to be a part of this effort with these good organizations.  Pray very hard we will be successful and fight crews will be safe.

Hurricane Dorian


HURRICANE DORIAN







Thursday, September 12, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE DORIAN


Please pray for the situation in the Bahamas.  Many organizations are joining together to make a relief effort to those who are in need.  Hearts with Hands, Anchor Baptist Mission, Flyn4God, Mission Air Care, Island Outreach, Lockwood Aviation Repair, and Landmark Baptist Church.  Please download the attachment to see the work.



Dave Spangler and Randy Crow left yesterday morning for Abaco.  We have not heard from them, but we are certain they made it.  They are taking SAT phones and supplies to the churches.



Hearts with Hands, Dr. Greg Lentz, has delivered two trucks at this time.  One load is already in the Bahamas.  The second truck went to Sebring where Flyn4God has obtained a permanent hanger storage.  Pray for Hearts with Hands more trucks are needed, but they must now buy the contents for the future trucks



Pastor Randy Barton with Anchor Baptist Mission has placed a man at the Sebring staging site.  This man will coordinate obtaining needed items and helping the flight crews load the planes.  They are also working to purchase supplies locally to load the planes.  Pastor Barton wrote the following.



“Need a box of English Tracts. Do you know of a church near Sebring that might have some?  Pressure washer is about to be loaded on 1st sortie.  Paint will be purchase and loaded on 2nd.”


A church has graciously met the needs of the tracts and will deliver today or tomorrow.



Mission Air Care, Brother Earl Malpass, has made arrangement with the owner of a Beechcraft Baron to fly.  It is in Sebring and should be flying this morning into Freeport.  Pray that the Mission Air Care Piper Chieftain will be ready to fly also.



The MAC flight this morning will contain a pressure washer to clean Pastor Bain’s church, so they can paint for services on Sunday.  The paint will be shipped today by MAC if all goes to plan. 



Pray for Assistant Pastor Woodside who will receive and coordinate shipments and begin restoration of the Tabernacle Baptist Church.



ORH is thankful to be a part of this effort with these wonderful organizations and Godly people.  Pray very hard we all will be successful and fight crews will be safe.

HURRICANE DORIAN


Friday, September 6, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE DORIAN

Please pray for Dave Spangler as he and Randy Crow make the initial flight into Man O War, Abaco, Bahamas. Yesterday, he sent the following to us.



“We will be working through New Life Bible Church and the Gospel Chapel on Man O War Cay Abaco.”



According to Dave, he and Randy will leave from Ft. Pierce, on Friday September 6, and fly to Treasure, Cay on Abaco.  The landing strip there is functional.  They will then fly to a small island where they will obtain helicopter service to Man O War.  They will fact-find, check churches, and return to Florida by Sunday.  The purpose of this trip is to begin initial planning for profitable ministry.



The first days after a storm always come with much anticipation of immediate rescue and help efforts.  Thank God for good people.  However, this eagerness without good information can lead to wasted effort.  Once ORH is certain of appropriate ministry, we will publish this for churches and individuals to support.



Hearts with Hands has loaded their first shipment of food boxes to be taken to the Ft. Pierce warehouse area obtained by Dave Spangler, Flyn4God, through Missionary Flights International.  Thank God for these organizations.



Thank God for our friends at Mission Air Care, Brother Earl Malpass.  He has offered to help with his air ministry, and ORH hopes to take advantage of his offer very soon.



Thank God for Pastor Altizer who is now working on the flooding in Charleston, SC.  If you know of anyone in need, please, let us know.



ORH thanks the following ministries for joining in ministry – Calvary Baptist Church, Pastor John Boutchia; Gospel Baptist Church, Pastor Bill Lytell; Catawba Springs Christian Church, Pastor Chuck Woodruff.

Hurricane Dorian


Wednesday, September 4, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE DORIAN

ORH is thankful for people who risk their lives to serve and support others in loss after a major disaster.  Dave Spangler, “Flyn4God”, and the pilots he secures for ORH Air Hope are such Christians.  Dave has worked in the Bahamas for years, even starting a small Bible College to train the pastors.



He has directed our efforts through the air for years.  He has written the following to us.



“Good Morning Dr. Jan,  This is to inform you and your folks the Churches we are working with in Abaco Bahamas.  Pastor Robin Waterford (sp) pastors two churches in Marsh Harbour, one is a Haitian ministry and both are sound Baptistic churches preaching the Gospel.  Pastor Randy Crow has pastored New Life Bible Church on Man-O-War Cay which is also a Baptistic church preaching the gospel. Pastor Randy also has a ministry "Island Outreach" reaching out to encourage other pastors of like faith.  We will be showing the love of Jesus Christ to the communities there through those churches.  Our first trip will be as soon as the airport is open and our round-trip expenses are apx. $1,000.00.  Thank you and your folks for your help.  God bless, Dave, Flyn4God”



Hearts with Hands, Ashville, NC, has in place a 53’ trailer of food supplies and much more for the work in Abaco, Bahamas.  This organization has one of the longest histories of relief work in a church environment of any ministry I know.  It has been the pleasure of ORH to work with them over the years.  They are willing to supply the goods, if ORH can find transportation.



ORH thanks the following ministries for joining with us in ministry – First Baptist Church of Westwood Lake, FL, Pastor Marc Mortensen; Calvary Baptist Church, Pastor Gordon Dickson; Faith Baptist Church, St Matthews, SC, Pastor Ernie Medlin; Calvary Baptist Church, Pastor Andrew Haney; Faith Baptist Church, Pastor David Harris; and more.  THANK YOU!

Dear Friends,



HURRICANE DORIAN


The storm has broken away north by northeast in direction and appears to be headed for South Carolina and North Carolina.



ORH has arranged to work with Anchor Baptist Relief from North Carolina, which is Anchor Baptist Church, Dr. Randy Barton.  We have worked with them since 2004.



“Bro. Milton, I know you are familiar with the Anchor Baptist Disaster Network.  We have worked almost every major storm since Hugo. 

Our goal is to have a load staged and ready to go but the funds are low.  We currently can buy a load of food for $19,000 plus shipping and have it staged and ready to go.

We have a Church that is ready to receive and distribute for the glory of GOD.   Michael Blanton, Director of Disaster Operations, Anchor Baptist Disaster Network”



Also, Pastor Guy Altizer with Windows of Heaven Ministries, Greenville, South Carolina, sent the following message.



“Keep me posted as to how we can help. Calvary (Calvary Baptist, Simpsonville, SC) is collecting water and paper supplies today and I am prepared to take them to Carl (Carl Wood, Anchor Baptist Church, Little River, SC) when needed. I offered Carl a place for some of his people that may evacuate, and I offered him to find other places for people to stay. I am waiting on word from him. Bro. Guy.”



Please pray that ORH will have the money to buy food, water, and supplies.  Pray that we can find good, strong churches in the storm impact area who loves ministry to the lost.

PANAMA BLESSING HELPING MARTITA


Friday, August 9, 2019





Dear Friends,



Caisan, Panama; Martita’s Care


While doing a clinic in Caisan, Panama, in October 2018, our doctors were asked to come to a villager’s home to help a woman in distress after a surgery.  Her home was a lean-to tarp structure against a home.  ORH doctors got involved with Martita; she had bladder surgery, and her bladder had been “nicked” allowing urine to escape.  ORH family members immediately went to work to help Martita and her daughters.



Jim Childress working with Pastor Roderick de Garcia led our October 2018 medical clinic where Martita’s medical and housing problems were discovered.  They continued to help her and sent us a report.



“While waiting on a site to build a room.  With limited medical attention, Martita has recuperated 90% of normal body functions that did not exist when she met our medical doctors and our church.  We are also helping the daughters with funds for legal documents and materials they can make handcraft things to sell.”



“So far, we have spent $1792.50 not counting some minor expenses and a few medicines.  We are very grateful for the participation of Operation Renewed Hope.  Martita now experiences a higher quality of life than what she had experienced.  But still has a long way to go to have a normal living experience.



Please download the attachment with pictures and a lengthier report.  We are thankful for Pastor Roderick, and ORH sends support so he can follow-up the spiritual impact at the Caisan Clinic of 2018.  He and Jim Childress are great blessings to the work of ORH.

ALBANIA AND UGANDA


Friday, August 2, 2019





Dear Friends,



ALBANIA BLESSINGS

God’s people are gracious and kind when supporting those working for the Lord.  In an update about Albania, ORH reported about Andi and Irda working with Michael Fiocchi, and ORH’s desire to help them with support of $200.00 per month.  God immediately sent a family wishing to donate toward their support.  We are so thankful that God’s people follow His leading in the support of ministry.



UGANDA 2019 MEDICAL CLINIC

The country of Uganda has always been a great blessing.  In July of 2019, ORH, once again, conducted evangelistic clinics there.  Keith and Sally Stensaas, faithful missionaries with Baptist International Missions, led our teams.

Keith’s new mission work is taking him into outlying bush villages, and ORH has joined with him.  Our team with Ugandan partners totaled 95 people.  This number made it possible to have two full medical teams.  The teams ministered in two villages approximately 25 km apart.

Over 2000 people came to the clinics received medical care and heard a clear message of the Gospel preached by national pastors.  Over 300 made a profession of faith in the Lord Jesus.  The national pastors have their names and have pledged to follow up the converts.  Keith Stensaas wrote this to us after the teams returned home.

“Brother Jan,

Wanted to send you a note to convey my gratitude for all your sacrifice and giving on our behalf.  I believe the clinics were a great success.  There were over 60 new people in the two churches on the Sunday following the clinics.  What a blessing!!  Thank you also, for the monetary gift.  That was truly an answer to prayer and was needed at the present time.  God always knows right when we need something!!” 

Please pray for these pastors, their churches, and Keith as they follow up these families.  Praise the Lord for those added to the church.  Please download the PDF.

As always we found many who needed more help than we could provide.  Pray for a young man 17 years old with a damaged hip that healed improperly.  Alan Sutphen also a missionary physician assistant is taking this to a medical doctor who may be able to help this young man with surgery.  Pray ORH will have the funds to secure this surgery.

HURRICANE MICHAEL UPDATE


Tuesday, July 2, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE MICHAEL UPDATE

ORH has received information from Ted Weinberg concerning Victory Baptist Church in Panama City, FL.  Victory buildings were badly damaged by Hurricane Michael last year.



Ted wrote the following to Brother Steve Perrine, pastor of Victory Baptist Church.  He is outlining things that must get done for Ted and his team to start restoration work in August.  Please read and pray for these things.



“We are about a month away from beginning the project. As of today, there are 5 people committed to coming in August. At this point we do not have a cook for the August team. Darcy will be driving down with our construction trailer in tow.  He will be bringing our tools and some of the materials.  Kevin McCoy is working on the building permit. Below are some items that we need your help with.

1. Check on the availability of a scissor lift that we can rent. It needs to be able to fit thru your double doors into the foyer and reach at least 20’ high. Do we need to reserve it?

2. The electrician that will be wiring the foyer lights could use our scissor lift to do his work. If the scissor lift could be delivered on July 31 then the electrician could wire the lights on August 1st and hopefully the electrical inspection could happen shortly thereafter. This timing is critical to keep scissor lift rental to a minimum and to keep the sheetrock install on time. Can you arrange for an electrician to do the wiring on this schedule?

3. We discussed having an architect draw up the details for the stonework at the church entry. How is that going?

4. We intend to start in the foyer as soon as we arrive. If there are delays in the foyer- work then we will work on suspended ceiling in another area….

Sorry to put all this on your plate.  Thanks, Ted” 



Pray that all the plans are successful in the tight schedule, so Ted can save money.



Ted has worked with ORH in Hurricane Maria with Dr. Johnny Daniels; in Hurricane Florence with Pastor Carl Wood; and now, in Hurricane Michael with Steve Perrine.   ORH has contributed substantially to Ted’s income each month so he can stay on site and continue restoration work.  Again, ORH will do the same here in Panama City.  ORH has committed $4000.00 to Ted’s missionary work through his church, Grace Baptist, in Owatonna, MN.



Pray for the work of Ted’s team.  Also, pray about going to Panama City and helping Ted.  Contact him at weinberghere@abwe.cc, if you have carpentry skills.

ALBANIA 2019 MEDICAL CLINIC


Wednesday, June 5, 2019







Dear Friends,



ALBANIA EVANGELISTIC MEDICAL CLINIC


It is always a blessing to tell about our evangelistic medical clinics.  In May 2019, ORH conducted four clinic days in Albania with missionaries Mike and Jennifer Fiocchi.  Mike is a missionary with Baptist World Mission.



This is the fourth clinic that ORH has joined with Mike Fiocchi.  The impacts have all been good with at least one church plant going strongly.  This clinic was conducted in the area around Korce which is in the south eastern part of Albania.  We visited 3 villages in the area, Maliq, Pojan, and Vreshtas.



The four clinic days were full of patients totaling 1075+.  As people came for their health care, they were asked to listen to a gospel message.  Mike and his faithful men, Ari and Andi gave the gospel as the team labored.  Four people came to Christ which was a great blessing.



As in other clinics, it was our great joy to go into an area which was heavily entrenched in religion and give a message of repentance and faith.  Pray now as we seek to follow up the work there.



Also, please pray for the people in the clinic area because of an earthquake which occurred on June 4, in the evening.  Mike sent us this message from the people in the area requesting help.



“The most necessary things to be considered for the following days:

Three meals/day for 180 people (breakfast, lunch, dinner) Beds, mattresses, pillows, blankets, Clothes, hygiene-sanitary day care packages, Latrines and portable showers, Kitchen utensils, Financial support for the restoration of the damaged houses, House furniture, We would appreciate your consideration for the above mentioned requests and cooperate with us to solve this considerable human crisis for these residents and Municipality of Korca.”



ORH has committed $1000.00 so Mike can help in the efforts.  Pray that this deeply religious area can be impacted by the compassion of Christ through the church.
