IF YOU KNOW A MISSIONARY OR CHURCH THAT WOULD BE WILLING TO PROVIDE FOOD FOR PEOPLE IN NEED, WRITE ORH AT JAN@OPERATIONRENEWEDHOPE.ORG.  THEY MUST AGREE TO GIVE THE GOSPEL WITH THE RELIEF GOODS.

Dear Friends,
Dr Tom Johnson's VMA Report to ORH
Dr. Johnson is one of our beloved missionaries with Baptist World Mission. We thank God for him and his wife, who sacrifice themselves for the people of Cambodia. ORH is blessed to provide him $1000.00 for a VMA clinic conducted. He works on many other clinics; ORH is just thankful to do VMA (Village Medical Assistant) clinics with him. Read his report below.

Name: Dr. Tom Johnson
Country: Cambodia, Takeo Province, Village Tapong
Date clinic conducted 2/28/20 No. of Patients: 70
Spiritual Impact: 10 people made professions of faith. Over the past two years, 9 home churches have begun utilizing the VMA clinic model for medical evangelism.  Each of the home churches are now pastored by a national and self-supported.    Dr. Tom Johnson and His evangelism team check in on these home church periodically and help with discipleship.

UKRAINE: ENSKYY'S FOOD DISTRIBUTION

ORH sending funds to the Enskyys to feed families: Read the report…

"The Lord's Word is true and He can work all things together for good..... Today we were able to help 2 single mothers who had recently been laid off due to the quarantine. Our church is excited about reaching out to lost friends, neighbors and
relatives through this pandemic. Every member has been tasked with finding candidates for "life boxes". Each bag of food has a Gospel tract and an invitation to church/online meetings. Our church members, who have personal relationships with these people, will try their best to build Kingdom bridges during this time. Many of our people are new believers themselves but have the fundamentals of the faith pretty solid and are excited to be able to learn to evangelize as well as help their neighbor. These two single mothers are friends of our English teacher/translator Inna who
recently accepted the Lord as her Savior. She has been hungry to learn God's Word herself and has already helped me, Lori, lead her good friend Marina to the Lord several weeks ago. Thank you for helping to make this possible. This is an exciting time to be a part of the Church of Christ. Ephesians 5:16 seems so apt for this time "Redeeming the time because the days are evil." Praise the Lord for His Goodness to and through His people!! We are praying for each of you to be a light where you are and that many will come to know the Savior because of your kindness and
Gospel witness!"

Pray our funds will be sufficient to help feed people with food and the gospel.

ORH - UKRAINE ENSKYY'S FEEDING STATION


Wednesday, March 25, 2020

IF YOU KNOW A MISSIONARY OR CHURCH THAT WOULD PROVIDE FOOD FOR PEOPLE IN NEED, PLEASE WRITE ORH AT JAN@OPERATIONRENEWEDHOPE.ORG.  THEY MUST AGREE TO GIVE THE GOSPEL WITH THE RELIEF GOODS.

Dear Friends,
UKRAINE
Oleg and Lori Enskyy wrote to us about their feeding ministry needs.  Operation Renewed Hope has sent $1000.00 to help them feed people.  ORH will continue to send them funds for running their feeding operations.  Please read what they wrote.

“    We covet your prayers for wisdom as we minister to people here.  Especially to our children from the feeding ministry.  Their families are very poor and barely get by each month.  Many of their parents cannot work due to the quarantine restrictions….  We are praying about buying in bulk and getting food boxes to them as we can't get "meals" to them daily….We covet your prayers as how to be a light in this very scary and confusing time.
     ORH left a lot of gloves and masks when they were here last year.  We kept them, not knowing how we might use them in the future.  Boy have they come in handy.  We have a good supply for our church members and feeding ministry staff.  We also have a lot of Acetaminophen left to give out when/if people get sick….Sincerely, The Enskyys in Ukraine”

Again, Oleg and Lori wrote the following:

“     COVID-19 outreach in Mukachevo, Ukraine (we are stealing your title: Operation Love Thy Neighbor)  We will be putting together food boxes, tracts and Bibles when appropriate for those in our community who cannot work due to the strict quarantine regulations set by our city.  The only stores allowed to remain open are those that sell food and drugs as well as banks and gas stations.  Everything else is closed.  We are expecting this to last 6-9 weeks. Many of these people live from weekly paycheck to weekly paycheck.  The loss of wages will have a horrible effect on their families.  We will also take these boxes to all of the children who attend the church's feeding ministry.  This will give us an opportunity to go into homes otherwise not available to us and give a tangible, Gospel message.  We will also invite them to our live streaming Friday night Bible study and Sunday Worship Service.  We are excited about how the Lord is going to give hope and comfort to many who do not yet know Him during these trying and uncertain times.  We covet your prayers!“

“     Thank you for praying for us today.  There was plenty of food to be bought at the market. We purchased 1,000 lbs of potatoes and every family we visited received a bag filled with 1 kg of : barley, buckwheat, rice, sugar, cream of wheat, macaroni, cooking oil and apples with a bulk bag of potatoes. We were able to put in Gospel tracts and invitations to our online services each week. Please pray for us this week as we continue to make market runs and visit with hurting people in our community. Pray for our safety and for the Gospel to be well received.  From Ukraine, the Enskyys”

PERU BLESSINGS


Wednesday, March 14, 2020




Dear Friends,
PERU
The work after a major clinic effort is never done.  The clinics create converts to follow up, discovered sicknesses to treat, and a major push to start a church or to strengthen an existing church.

In Peru, Alex Herrera, Segundo, and Wilbur Sebastian work in the villages where medical clinics have been held.  They work with Buddy Fitzgerald to follow up the spiritual benefits of the medical clinics.  ORH is completely committed to helping them with support so they can give full attention to the work.

In the attachment you will see Pastor Wilbur with 3 people from Sepahua, Peru, where ORH conducted the most recent Peruvian clinic.  The lady and the young man standing next to each other were discovered to need further health care.  It is a joy to support Wilbur as he faithfully serves in Sepahua.

Pray that ORH will have the funds to continue supporting these exceptionally faithful men.

LIBERIA MEDICAL TEAM JAN 2020


Monday, February 17, 2020



Dear Friends,

Liberia January 2020 Medical Clinic
Lord Shepherd Hope Foundation in Monrovia, Liberia hosted Operation Renewed Hope into Liberia for a medical clinic.  Pastor Joseph Nunu, president of the foundation along with other board members, worked very hard to make the clinic a success.  Pastor Nunu and his team love their country.

The clinic was held in Gbarnga (Bonga) about 2.5 hours away from Monrovia the capitol. The clinic occupied the facilities of Mt. Sinai Baptist Church and School.  The pastor, Peter Kollie, was a great blessing as he opened his church to ORH.  Over 1700 patients came to the clinic.  Each day while waiting on pharmacy the people were given the Gospel with over 300 receiving Christ.

ORH medical people discovered several who needed greater healthcare help.  David Sunday, Liberian Physician Assistant, board member of LSHF, and director of Omega Clinic in Monrovia helped ORH with those in further need.  He wrote the following.

     “The 14 yrs old boy will be discharge from the ELWA  hospital in two days.  He is diagnosed endocarditis myositis….  He needs a weekly visit at the Hospital.  His total hospital bill is 500. USD
      The 3 ladies with the fibroid have been assessed by the Doctor they are scheduled for surgeries. The 3 of them have a bill of 1700.00 USD.
      The one with the uterine cancer will require complete hysterectomy which will cost 800.00USD.  So far these are the works we have done.  Thanks for helping.  David Sunday Mulbah”

We are thankful to God that he has given these opportunities.  Pray ORH will have the funds to help these people.

Lebanon Update


Monday, February 17, 2020
 


Dear Friends,

GOSPEL BAPTIST CHURCH, ZAHLE, LEBANON
Gospel Baptist Church in Zahle, Lebanon, is pastored by Karim Dahdah.  Zahle is a mountain town very close to the Syrian border.  For several years, ORH has helped the church reach these people.

The church by providing fuel oil, medicine, medical help, boots, coats, clothing, and food have brought many into the church.  Some have trusted Christ as a result of this ministry.  In addition to ORH, many other good ministries have helped them.  ORH thanks Dr. Jack Mitchel and his wife for their efforts through their ministry with Gospel Baptist Church.

This winter, through your gifts, ORH has sent $3000.00 dollars to help Gospel Baptist Church in its mission.  Pastor Dahdah communicated through Sam Stricklin that they need more to get through the winter.  Pray for ORH, that we will be able to send more funds this winter.

     “Jan, I sent you pictures last week showing Syrian refugees receiving aid. I realized later that two pictures and the financial report did not go through.  I forwarded them to you today.  I advanced the $1500 funds for this to Karim's church bank account on January 9.  Karim is asking if it would be possible for additional funds to be sent up until April when the weather warms up?
     Thank you so much for your love, concern, and generosity to these precious people.  Sam

CALVARY BAPTIST BIBLE COLLEGE


Tuesday, February 11, 2020






Dear Friends,

CALVARY BAPTIST BIBLE COLLEGE
PUERTO RICO
Operation Renewed Hope spent many hours with the Air Hope Coalition flying food, water, construction materials, and so much more because of Hurricane Maria.  This occurred in 2017 and 2018 in Puerto Rico.

Sadly, in 2020, there is work which must be done.  Dr. Johnny Daniels of Calvary Baptist Tabernacle and Calvary Baptist Bible College needs help.  College buildings were damaged and demolished.  The church and Christian day school buildings are repaired, but the Bible college is not ready for students.  The church has housed students off-campus but must bring them back on Campus.

The college needs to finish five more dorm structures.  The church has finished two structures for the men, but needs one more for the men, three for the ladies, and one bathroom structure for the ladies.  The college is receiving requests for enrollment, now; even international requests outside of the Caribbean.

The college needs $40,000.00.  Each structure averages $8000.00.  If you can help immediately, the church needs at least $15,000.00 by the end of February.  Two building teams are scheduled to come the first of March to finish the women’s bathroom structure.  The college must have building materials with which to work.

Send all financial help to Anchor Baptist Missions, 3232 Hendersonville Hwy, Pisgah Forest, NC 28768, (828) 884-7610.  Designate the funds, “Calvary Baptist Bible College.

ORH IS MAKING THIS KNOWN BECAUSE OF THE NEED.  ORH IS NOT ASKING FOR FUNDS FOR ORH.  Please download the attachment to see the needs.

God bless you,
The Operation Renewed Hope Family Around the World!

THE ANGELS ARE SINGING


Operation Renewed Hope
P.O. Box 43242
Fayetteville, NC 28309

910-987-5072


Tuesday, January 14, 2020



Dear Friends,

Tabernacle Baptist Church – Freeport Bahamas
In the early days of Dorian, ORH was led to Assistant Pastor Norris Bain of Tabernacle through contacts.  Through several phone calls the process of helping the church began.

Airplanes from the Air Hope Coalition began to make flights almost daily bringing needed building supplies and relief goods.  ORH purchased plywood, sheet rook, tape, mud, tools, cleaning supplies, nails, screws, paint, carpet, chairs, and things too numerous to mention.

Teams from churches and groups began to help rebuild, some of which were the results of contacts through ORH.  The airplanes eventually gave way to ships.  The cargos were larger, and the work of restoration moved ahead rapidly.

The attachment gives you a visual presentation of the progression of the rebuilding of the auditorium of the church.  The last text I received was a great blessing.  Pastor Bain sent pictures of the services of the church in the new auditorium.  He could have written “Wow! This is so beautiful.”  He did not.  He wrote,

“Awesome…Thought about the worth of a soul today.”

ORH along with Pastor Bain really believes that helping restore a church building and equipment is for one purpose, the soul Jesus died to save!  Thank you for joining us in this good work.

DORIAN CHRISTMAS PARTY BAHAMAS

910-987-5072


Tuesday, December 31, 2019

Dear Friends,

HURRICANE DORIAN – FREEPORT BAHAMAS
Christmas is always a wonderful time of year.  Christmas 2019 was especially a blessing.  Hearts with Hands in Ashville, NC, initiated a Christmas party event sponsored by Tabernacle Baptist Church in Freeport, Bahamas.  Dr. Greg Lentz wrote the following text about the event.

“Jan with this being the 4th Tractor Trailer load of supplies to the Bahamas we  adopted 300 children for Christmas, and we delivered 300 back pack school bags , flip flops, shirt, and Christmas toys, also provided 500 children and families with food boxes and sent over cleaning buckets and supplies. Dr. Greg Lentz, Hearts with Hands”

Since the first days of Dorian, ORH has worked with this church and community.  Hearts with Hands has been a wonderful partner in this work.  It was only natural that ORH would once again join with Hearts with Hands by providing $4000.00 toward the community Christmas party.  Thank you, Dr. Lentz, for allowing ORH to participate with you to encourage children at Christmas time.

And, thank you, for selflessly suppling funds, supplies, airplanes, and much more.  Many sent personal funds; churches sent offerings; and organizations sent checks.  Without you, ORH could not help.  Download the attachment for a real blessing.
