Randy Alderman - Togo West Africa Covid 19 Help






The 2 outer students come from Pastor Soapa’s churches and plan to return to help him.  The middle student will return to help Pastor Abalo.











Pastor Abalo was saved in our Tchaloude church and has returned to his village to pastor that church as well as 3 other locations in other villages.  We have one student in Bible Institute that wants to return there and help him, and another potential student to start Bible Institute from Tchaloude in July.  It is a great joy to serve with this precious brother.










Pastor Kudjo was saved as a young teenager in our very first church. His family were alcoholics and our first neighbors!  God has brought him a long way from those days!  He is translating from French to Kabiye during a pastor’s conference.  He is a wonderful teacher of the Word of God. 










Pastor Philip (with Randy Alderman) pastors the church at Lama Feign as well as several other locations.  He also assists me in teaching Bible Institute for various courses.  He is a faithful brother with a real pastor’s heart.












Pastor Bienvenu pastors a church in one of the divisions of Kara.  He was saved in that church as a teenager.









Pastor Soapa was saved as a student apprentice in our very first church plant.  He had a deep desire to reach is family and people in the far north of Togo.  After Bible Institute he returned there and mostly by his effort and a small amount from me, he started and now pastors 6 village churches.  He has been a “Timothy” with me in the ministry.  We have 2 students in Bible Institute that will prayerfully will return to the far north after they finish and assist Pastor Soapa.






This brother is a teacher and a son of a family in one of our churches.  He started a church on his own and helped fund the building himself which is unheard of here in Togo.  We are starting a new church plant with him in another location and he attends Bible Institute in the summer months.











Pastor Henock is working with me to start a new church plant on the outskirts of Kara at Tchintchinda.  We were ready to start the weekend the Covid shut-down occurred so hopefully churches will soon be open.










This is Pastor Pre who pastors a church in the village of Pagouda.  It is a very poverty-stricken, difficult place to minister but he has faithfully pastored his flock for a number of years.

Ghana Food and Help





Hello, this is Brother Keith Phelps with FBHM. Pastor Emmanuel Ameyaw has sent me some pictures and receipts of the last food distribution in a few villages. I will attach some of those to this email.



He is now working on the details and linguistics of the next food distributions with the funds that he just received. 




He has also told me that he will be working with the Ghana "Ministry of Health" department within the Ghana government for the Covid-19 relief funds that was sent from Operation Renewed Hope this week. He said he will let us know, as soon as he gets more details on the food distribution and the Covid-19 relief operations.





Thank you again for your generous support of the precious souls if Ghana, West Africa!

Liberia Food Distribution 2


Mr. President,

This is the report on food distributions and some pictures as well.

Mr. President, you sent me (The Lord Shepherd Hope Foundation) the second money for food distributions which was $2000 USD.

Here are the way it was used:

1. We purchased 100 bags of uncle mario, by the unit price of $ 14.5 which total amount is $1450 USD.

And the balance was$ 550 USD. And out of this money we purchased gas for the two days going around from church to church for the distributions.

2. For gas, we used 50 USD,  for food, we used 50 USD. 
 And we also used 50  USD for gas from Gbarnga back to Monrovia.

3.  The balance $ 400 was used for my Deacon's son death who died from Hepatitis B  just recently
for burial.  I believe you can remember the boy I am talking about and I sent you his picture that time, but finally he could not make it.

Please pray for his little son, Samuel that have left with us.

Please also pray for this  little baby who mother left in child birth! 

However, Mr. President, please let me know if you have any questions or thoughts on this report.

Thank you so much and the ORH team.

God bless.

Pastor Joseph D Nunu,
President, The Lord Shepherd Hope Foundation, Monrovia, Liberia,West Africa.

Dear Friends,

MICHIGAN FLOODING IMPACTING CHURCH FAMILIES

BEAVERTON BAPTIST CHURCH, BEAVERTON, MI
The church secretary wrote…”The past few months have been taxing on the world due to COVID-19. Then on top of that, the last couple of weeks have been difficult for so many displaced people in central Michigan due to the recent devastation caused by 3 dams and a levy breeching. Wixom Lake alone, which holds 21.5 billion gallons of water, emptied out in just one hour when the Edenville dam breeched.”

ORH has agreed to send by faith $1000.00 to help this good group of people with their needs.  The hope is that we will be able to help much more.  Pray for God’s supply.

Please go to this link to read the full report.

JOSEPH PROJECT – HAITI: BROTHER SERGE JACMEL REPORTS ABOUT THE FOOD DISTRIBUTION

“Hi, brother Jan!  I see some posts by ORH about some reliefs to some countries, like Uganda. Would there be any possibility to send a little something for Haiti, please?

After telling Brother Serge, ORH could send $1000.00; he wrote.

Thank you in advance. I am going to meet with two deacons in my church. There is a deacon woman among them, and we will see how much food we can buy with that amount!”

ORH sent $1000.00 through Mission for Haiti, to help Brother Serge and the churches with which he is working.

Serge is a recent graduate of Bob Jones University.  After finishing his degree, he went back to Haiti.    Please pray for Brother Surge.  ORH received this message after he received the $1000.00.

“A thousand thanks to ORH for the 1000 dollar sent in response to my request on behalf of some people in my churches (Evangelical Church of the Redeemed) among the poorest.”

MICHIGAN FLOODING DURING COVID 19


Beaverton Baptist Church
Budget for Operation Renewed Hope
June 1, 2020


The past few months have been taxing on the world due to COVID-19. Then on top of that, the last couple of weeks have been difficult for so many displaced people in central Michigan due to the recent devastation caused by 3 dams and a levy breeching. Wixom Lake alone, which holds 21.5 billion gallons of water, emptied out in just one hour when the Edenville dam breeched. Then came the Sanford dam, then the Smallwood dam, then the Poseyville dyke. The torrents of raging water flooded large areas of four different counties, causing the evacuation of 10,000 people. Our governor declared a State of Emergency for what is being called a “500-year” flood. Many bridges and dozens of roads were washed away. What would normally be a 25-mile drive to Midland from here, became an 86-mile arch to the north around the disaster area, because the main bridges (including US-10 over Sanford Lake) were gravely damaged or disappeared altogether. Praise God no lives were lost throughout all of this.


We at Beaverton Baptist Church are reaching out and help some families whose homes were damaged by this disaster. Our own church members, Chuck & Karen Case, live on Wixom Lake. Thankfully, as the water was just beginning to rise, filling their crawl space and starting to inch up into their home, the Edenville dam breeched. The lake drained so quickly as it crashed on downstream, breeching the next dam and flooding the town of Sanford. We are helping the Case family as they put the pieces of their lives back together. There are so many others whose lives have changed unexpectedly and dramatically as they lost most of if not everything they owned. Many don’t even have Jesus as Lord to help carry them through the months ahead. We would like to share the gospel of Jesus with others, so they can have that peace that passes understanding as they move forward. Thank you to Operation Renewed Hope for giving this blessed “God Opportunity” to share Jesus in this part of the vineyard.


ORH Gift:   $1,000

BUDGET:   $1,000 – HVAC SYSTEM

Since there are so many organizations, churches and groups that have come in from all over, and are handing out food, cleaning supplies, and personal hygiene products, we feel led to help out a family or two with much-needed home repair due to damage caused by flooding.

Chuck's crawl space, showing the duct work
just hanging from the ceiling.
 The water-logged insulation has been pulled
 down already. 
We are going to start with helping one family, Chuck & Karen Case.

Chuck and his son have already done most of work cleaning up the water and dampness out of his crawl space and home.

Chuck’s said his first priority is his HVAC system. He called a guy about replacing the ductwork and getting a new AC unit put in. The man is swamped with jobs right now because of the disaster. He said he will get back with Chuck as soon as he can.

I was trying to see how I could split up the budget for different uses, but in Chuck’s case, his first need is the HVAC.  So we would like to put the $1,000 toward getting that HVAC system replaced and running for Chuck and Karen. We don’t know when it will be able to be installed. All the HVAC businesses are swamped with jobs right now.

Thank you!

In Christ Jesus,
Sharon Cay

Pastor Joseph Nunu - Lord Shepherd Hope Foundation Report

Jan, Here are the pictures of the various receipts for the buckets and face masks.

Jan, please understand that I prepaid for the hand sanitizer but to no avail I never receive it because of the scarcity on the market.

Therefore, I added the sanitizer money to the face masks money which gives me the total numbers of 63 boxes for 30 each instead of 35 dollars because of the huge quantity I purchased. And these 63 boxes give me 756 pieces which is very helpful.


And I was able to pay 13 dollars USD for each bucket instead of 15 dollars which enable me to print the Lord Shepherd Hope Foundation and ORH name on all.
