SEA HOPE SAILS

 ORH NEEDS HELP IN THE "LAURA" IMPACT AREA.

God answered our prayers.
Arise Baptist Church has acquired a cooker for distributing hot food and the Gospel. Pastor Cover and his church fed 280 people last week giving the Gospel. ORH thanks God for such great partners

We now have four work teams from churches forming.

ORH thanks Morningside Baptist Church in Greenville, SC, for individuals volunteering.

ORH NEEDS GOSPEL TEAMS, DEMOLITION WORKERS, CARPENTERS, ROOFERS, SHEET ROCK WORKERS.

SEA HOPE - GOD IS GOOD!



About 2 years ago, Captain Buddy Puryear, Jan Milton, and Rick Williamson met in a North Carolina diner to discuss a new ministry, SEA HOPE.
Shortly thereafter, Buddy Puryear and Jan Milton made a presentation to businessmen about purchasing a boat to conduct gospel and mercy missions in the Caribbean. From this meeting came the purchase of SEA HOPE.
Currently, Captain Puryear is engaged in a COVID 19 food mission. ORH has provided $7000.00 for fuel, and $7700.00 for food. Anchor Baptist Missions is also joining with $7700.00 for food, man power, and transportation of the food to the boat.
A ministry on an island nation is also working to clear the customs and to distribute the food properly to churches.
Captain Puryear is a man who trusts God. His greatest help is his First Mate, Mary his wife. She has worked physically and proven faithful all through this effort. Her faith has never wavered.
The mission will set sail very soon weather permitting. Pray this mission is successful.

WINDOWS OF HEAVEN BUILDING TEAM LEAVES SOUTH CAROLINA FOR LOUISIANA.
Windows of heaven is a wonderful organization. Pastor Guy Altizer started this ministry after his pastorate at Calvary Baptist Church in Simpsonville South Carolina. The ministry is dedicated to helping raise funds for missionaries and people in need.
Windows of Heaven began raising money for the work in hurricane Laura impact area. ORH just received this message from Pastor Altizer.
"I will be sending $1700.00 for LA Food. I answered the phone after you hung up and the man that was calling gave $500.00!...."
"Check is in the mail. Thanks, Bro. Guy."
Mark Goldfuss works with Windows of Heaven as their lead planner of construction. Pastor Altizer sent ORH the pictures of the Windows of Heaven team traveling to various countries.
Although Pastor Altizer, will not be able to go. Mark and the Windows of Heaven team will travel to hurricane Laura impact area to help individuals and churches rebuild.
Operation Renewed Hope is thankful to work with such skilled people. Please pray for them as they travel and labor. Thank God for Calvary Baptist Church, Simpsonville!

Report from Pastor Will Cover, Arise Baptist Church.


We are helping Victory Baptist Church in Lake Charles and Vincent Baptist Church in Sulphur.


We have 25 from our church working here today. One team of ladies is helping the pastor's wife pack all of her belongings. Their home suffered a lot of damage and they have to move everything out to make repairs.

We have another team cooking and serving hotdogs to the community.

We have a team working to distribute food in the community and a team working out of a food pantry at the church. Two of our boys are serving cold water to the folks as they come in. Everyone who comes hears the gospel and we already had one couple trust Christ. We are able to connect them to the pastor and help them get into this church.

We have a team doing cleanup around the church property of trees and other debris.

Our final team is working at Vincent Baptist tarping their roof and cleaning up around the property.

There is so much need for help. Just coming and helping to clean up at this point. For these churches they haven't even started to rebuild yet. That is still to come. Seeing the tired, sweaty smiles and and hearing one man say today that if he had died in the storm he would have gone to Hell. He prayed to receive Christ today! I am thankful for how God uses storms to save people!

Destruction in Louisiana - Opportunity to Elevate Jesus

 

Something to pray about....  These pictures represent people in great need.  Some are church members, but many need Jesus.

Galatians 6:9–10

9And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 

10As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

ORH - EXPERIENCES IN "LAURA" AREA

OPERATION RENEWED HOPE

TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 1, 2020



 ORH NEEDS HELP IN THE "LAURA" IMPACT AREA.

ORH is seeking a "pull behind" cooker for preparing food for returning people. If you have a good "pull behind" that you could donate, the Gospel could go to hundreds in the coming days. It must be in extremely good condition for testimony sake.
ORH has generators in the Lakeland, FL, area that must be moved to the "Laura" impact area. The generators are palletized and will require a box truck.
ORH NEEDS GOSPEL TEAMS, DEMOLITION WORKERS, CARPENTERS, ROOFERS, SHEET ROCK WORKERS.
ORH NEEDS INDIVIDUALS FOR REBUILDING EFFORTS.
I CAN HELP!
ARISE BAPTIST CHURCH - IMMEDIATE RESPONCE
Arise Baptist Church - Pastor Will Cover - has taken a first trip into the Louisiana area of Lake Charles.
The "Arise Team" met with Dr. Greg Lentz, Hearts with Hands, whose food truck was there to distribute food to the churches. As a result of "Arise Team" efforts with food distribution, a lady received the Lord Jesus.
ORH is investing money in food with Hearts with Hands. Two more trucks should be arriving today. With distribution of the food, also, goes the Gospel. We must get the message out now. Consider helping
If you know of anyone in the impact area needing help, please CONTACT ORH, so we can HELP them.
I CAN HELP!
GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH - DAMAGED BY STILL AFLOAT
A church does not choose its area of ministry. A church is established where God's people are. Sometimes those churches are in harm's way as they minister the Gospel and edification.
I hope that you will help ORH minister to these hurting churches in harms way. Laura left so many churches and homes damaged. Thank God for the Church in harms way.
Pastor Will Cover from Arise Baptist Church in Houston, TX, sent the following reports by text today. His church is ministering to the churches in harms way.
"Pictures from Grace Baptist in Sulphur, LA. House of one church member needs tree cleanup. We are helping here. The group from Arise Baptist and Helmer's Street Baptist in Houston here to work for the day."
I CAN HELP!
VINCENT BAPTIST CHURCH - NEEDS A PASTOR
Pastor Will cover walks with a member of Vincent Baptist Church surveying the damage.
Pastor Cover wrote the following:
"Vincent Baptist Church. Established in 1886. Currently in need of a pastor. We are working with the retired pastor and some of the members. Will need a new roof. No insurance currently."
Possibly, you know someone who desires to be a pastor. Contact ORH so a connection can be made.
The church needs volunteers to help seal its buildings from further water damage.
Pray about helping, and then go as
God leads.
I CAN HELP!

Phil sent ORH the following:

 

Good afternoon from Zambia.

 

Just wanted to thank you and share the update that the funds you sent were distributed equally between the following men. All of these men are connected to the ministry here either through the network of churches that have been planted in the past 25yrs or as church planting alumni of CABU. What an encouragement and blessing this has been to these men!

 

I am working on getting some feedback from a few of these men and will forward that on to you soon.

 

Please thank the donors for making this timely investment. Huge blessing!

TESTIMONIES

 

Dear Brethren,

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for financial help rendered to me. An amount of 1,730 Kwacha was transferred to my account.

Whereas the money will be helpful in taking care of one or two things, the gesture itself is priceless and a very apt reminder that even in the grind of things there are some brethren somewhere who think about and pray for me. Ministry with all its indescribable joys can paradoxically be a lonely place. Thank you once again for your ministry to me.

In Christ,

Oduor Obunga,

Pastor, Mansa Central Baptist Church.

OLEG AND LORI ENSKYY – COVID 19 MINISTRY

ORH is very thankful for all the good things that God does.  We know that He is always guiding us to faithful people in the ministry.  Oleg and Lori are exactly the faithful people to whom He led us.  Lori sent the following to ORH.

 

Dear brother Jan,

     Thank you so much for sending us $1000 for our COVID food outreach ministry.  This money will be put to good use helping those out of work or who have had work hours decreased because of quarantine.  The Lord has allowed us to enter homes and share the Gospel with those who would have never let us in before. 

     We are seeing an increase in visitor attendance at church and openness to hearing more about spiritual truths because of this ministry.  Thank you so much for trusting us to be a part of ORH in Ukraine.  We are attaching pictures from our Sunday baptismal service.  Two of the three new believers were reached through ORH ministries - children's feeding ministry and ORH medical outreach. 

     Many of the people who attended the service were visitors from the feeding ministry.  Praise the Lord for what He is doing in Ukraine!

     We are praying for your many and varied ministries at Friendship and all over the world!

Sincerely,

Lori for all the Enskyys in Ukraine
