Christmas in Uganda


Saturday, December 14, 2019


\




Dear Friends,



NOW THIS IS CHRISTMAS!!!



Uganda - Soroti Orphan Assistance Program

Keith Stensaas hosted our Uganda 2019 clinic.  We had a great clinic with Keith.  With all our Ugandan partners there were 97 on our medical team.  We broke into two groups and treated over 2000 patients all being given the message of Christ.



One patient was a 17 year-old patient with a serious hip problem. Alan Sutphen in Soroti, Uganda is a medical missionary, and he helped ORH obtain surgical help for the young man and wrote the following.



     “Bro Milton,  The young man's name is Kaduma Christopher. He is a 17 y/o young man who dislocated his hip over a year ago.

     The labs showed no evidence of infection, so the surgeon is recommending a total hip replacement. As one who worked for 15 years in orthopaedic surgery, doing hip replacements in teens is not the best scenario….  But certainly, a replacement would give him much better mobility and better quality of life.

     I spoke to the surgeon today, and the price is $6,000 for the prosthesis, hospital costs, etc. He'll get me an itemized bill and I can send it to you.  Blessings, Alan”



Because Caduma Christopher is young, eventually, he will need another surgery.  Brother Sutphen also wrote this week.



     “Bro Jan, I spoke to the surgeon today, and he said Chris' surgery can be done next Friday. I suppose we would need the funds by next week….”



Pray for this young man.  His father is dead, and he lives with his grandfather.  Life can be difficult at times.  ORH wants to relieve some of that if possible.  They both have received the Gospel.  By faith, ORH is sending the funds for the surgery.



Thanks to Keith Stensaas and Alan Sutphen for their work.  Please download the PDF to see Caduma Christopher and his grandfather.

ORH CHRISTMAS IN LEBANON


Thursday, December 12, 2019





Dear Friends,



NOW THIS IS CHRISTMAS!!!



LEBANON – GOSPEL BAPTIST CHURCH

Pastor Karim Dahdah is still working diligently and ministering through Gospel

Baptist Church in Zahle, Lebanon.  The church’s ministry includes a ministry to Syrian families who have been relocated to Lebanon due to the dangerous conditions in Syria.  Pastor Dahdah is faithful to tell them of Christ.



The need during the winter in Zahle is heating fuel.  Pastor Dahdah supplies heating fuel through a voucher system with local business.  Operation Renewed Hope has been privileged to supply funds to support this effort.  ORH sent $1500.00 this year to buy heating fuel.



Pray that ORH will have enough money to help even more in the coming days.  We need open ministry while the Syrian people are in a country where the gospel can be preached, and a church can have authority to exist.  ORH thanks missionary Sam Stricklin for his consistent work so that money can be sent for ministry.



Please download the PDF to see some of the people receiving their vouchers from Pastor Karim.

Dear Friends,



NOW THIS IS THANKSGIVING!!!



Uganda, Pastor Zebedee’s School Desks

See the attachment for pictures of Pastor Zebedee’s school in Kasese, Uganda.  Thanks to Keith and Matt Stensaas for helping us deliver the $1000.00 to Pastor Zebedee.  He is a good man in a very hard situation.  He has hundreds of kids in the church school on the mountain just outside of Kasesee.  He wrote the following.



“Our school children are so happy with desks, Thank you so much, with the money you sent it has enabled us to make 50 desks and now we are praying for more 50 for everyone to seat on a desk, thank for me everyone that supported towards this school need.  Nov 23, 2019, 9:05 AM



Our church family and our school parents and our school children has asked me to thank you for supporting our church school with desks. Everyone is  happy and appreciates what you offered to us.”



Pray ORH can do the other 50 chairs.



Liberia 2020 – Staff Filled

Thank you to all who are going to Liberia in January 2020.  Our team is reaching 40 now.  We think we have enough caregivers; however, we will always take any caregiver wishing to travel.  Please pray for the team.

                

Hurricane Dorian

Mike Vanhorn’s building team and Tim Layne’s building team did great work repairing the auditorium of Tabernacle Baptist Church.  They were also able to begin rebuilding Pastor Bain’s house. 



ORH needs at least one more building team.  ORH has purchased windows, doors, and all new kitchen appliances for Pastor Bain.  Mrs. Bain was very excited that she was able to go to Home Depot and pick all new appliances for her home.  This was all due to your giving.  Currently, the Bain family is living with Mrs. Bain’s father and mother, Pastor and Mrs Woodside.



Please pray about making up a building team.  Call 910-987-5072.



The new carpet for the church has arrived, and we have been told the chairs are almost at port for shipping to the church.  Thanks goes to Kingdom Chairs for their great assistance with the chairs.



Due to your giving, ORH will be able to help three more pastors in the impact zone.  A special thanks to Cornerstone Foundation.

PERU 2019 CLINIC UPDATE


Thursday, November 7, 2019








Dear Friends,



PERU 2019 – Sepahua, Miaria, Bufeo Pozo

ORH thanks all who prayed for our Peru 2019 Medical Clinic.  The total team once assembled was made up of 51 people.  We were able to work the jungle towns of Sepahua, Miaria, and Bufeo Pozo.  On google earth search for Sepahua, Peru to see our location.  Buddy Fitzgerald, Baptist World Mission, was our missionary who lead our group.



Our trip required that ORH charter planes from Pucallpa, Peru into Sepahua.  ORH was glad to work with South American Mission – Air, SAETA, and HTS to use their planes  to get our team into Sepahua.



The clinic was held in 3 days due to the air transportation timing.  Our clinics treated over 1200 patients.  In order to get to Miaria and Bufeo Pozo the team traveled by river.  The first two days were spent in clinic at Miaria and Bufeo Pozo.  The last day was spent at Sepahua.



The evangelism was a great blessing with well over 150 people coming to Christ.  The mayor of Sepahua was instrumental in getting our permissions to do the clinic days.  He also trusted Christ as a result of the missionary translator, Marcos, witnessing to him individually.



The town of Miaria cleared land for a church the first week after the clinic.



Buddy wrote us, “They have cleaned up the lot by hand for the new church building in Miaria.”  He also sent a picture of their present meeting place.  (See the attachment)



We were thankful for the missionaries coming 15 hours by boat from the southern region on the Madre de Dios river.  Kristina Matson, Rachel Tarvin, Karina Stijnen, and Brother Whatley were a great blessing.  Brother Whatley has been a missionary in Peru most of his life.  He is in his late 70’s now.  Peruvian preachers also came with them.



Wilbur Sebastian is our national pastor in Sepahua.  He and other believers will follow-up the converts. We are thankful for Wilbur and his family who are faithful to work in Sepahua.  ORH is praying for enough money to support him with at least $100.00 per month.



ORH thanks God for the Junior Nursing class of Maranatha Baptist University.  Ann

Schmoeckel and Elizabeth Stille lead the group of young men and women to Sepahua with ORH.

HURRICANE DORIAN


Tuesday, October 29, 2019



Dear Friends,



HURRICANE DORIAN

PRAY VERY STRONGLY!!!



Please pray for Stephen Phelps who was scheduled to lead a building team into Freeport, Bahamas.  Sunday, Oct 27, he suffered a stroke while at church.  Pray God will restore this good man to His service.



We are now praying for a new building team.  Today, ORH began talks with a Michigan group that may be able to go.  ORH has purchased over $4000.00 of building materials and equipment for the work in Tabernacle Baptist Church, Freeport.  The materials have been shipped and are on-site.



REFUGEES IN NASSAU



ORH is financing the work of Dirk Irick and his wife who will help the Bahamians stranded in Nassau from the Dorian impact islands.  Please read Dirk’s letter.



     “Dear Jan Milton,  Hello, we are the Dirk Irick family.  We are missionaries to Nassau Bahamas and are currently on deputation raising support.  Our family had the opportunity to assist Victory Baptist Church in Nassau for VBS during the month of July and seen twenty-nine souls saved.

     Since hurricane Dorian our family has been eager to help the Bahamians.  The Lord closed many doors for us to go to Freeport.  We are so excited that the Lord has directed us to our “Island” of Nassau to encourage the refugees.  There are currently 1,600 refugees in shelters and the number is growing daily.  One particular area named Fox Hill has a community center with about 150 refugees.  Fox Hill is where our family stayed on our first visit to The Bahamas in 2015 and that is where the Lord burden our hearts to reach the youth.  We are very familiar with the area and have many friends there. 

     …We want to take the good news of Jesus Christ to these hurting people October 11th-19th.  Sincerely,  Dirk Irick,  Reaching the Youth of the Bahama”



As a result of their desire and specifics, ORH agreed to finance them up to $2000.00 for their efforts among the refugees on Nassau.



“Please click the link below to view our video from last week.  Thank you again for your support.  We will send you our prayer letter as soon as we complete it.  Dirk Irick”

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.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
