Dear Friends,

JOSEPH PROJECT – ORH-TELEHELP IN UGANDA WITH PASTOR ZEBEDEE
The ORH-TELEHELP program has been a channel of blessing to a remote mountain village outside of Kasese, Uganda.  There is no medical care in this village, and during the pandemic precautions, travel is restricted. 

Our first patient was an 80 years old lady with shortness of breath.  Pastor Zebedee was able to arrange video consult by phone.  Dr. Scott and Dr. Humphreys were able to provide medical advice.   Our hope is to provide consultation by phone so they can work with a Doctor in Kasese through Missionary Matt Stensaas.  Also, ORH hopes to train a village medical assistant to assist our ORH-TELEHELP team to assist this village medically and spiritually.  There are over 50 elderly and 350 children needing consult.

Joseph Project – SEE THE MINISTRY FACE  IN THE PHILIPPINES
ORH was very grateful to Pastor Janel Nemeno for his effort to help the people around his church, Bible Baptist Church,  in Binalbagan Negros Island, Philippines.  Pastor Janel wrote us the following.

“Hello Please pray for us here in Binalbagan Negros Island. We have 14 days quarantine, many needy people, needy members who are in need of food. Please pray for us and please extend some help for us to buy some food and groceries. The people here they will not die of the virus but they will die due to hunger. Our church was able to distribute 125 families with 10kls. Rice and groceries but it’s not enough, people are keep coming and begging for food. Please include us in your ministry. Thank you ORH and Sir Jan Milton.”

After receiving Pastor Janel’s request, ORH requested references which were contacted. Then, ORH sent $500.00 to start food distribution.  Pastor Janel was true to his word, sending documentation back.  When ORH received his documentation for the first $500.00, another $500.00 was sent with the same expectation of documentation.

UGANDA COVID 19 FOOD DISTRIBUTION

UGANDA FOOD DISTRIBUTION PICTURES

Though there have been no deaths in Uganda from COVID-19, people are having a hard time getting food and the necessities of life. Pray for our people that their trust in God will carry them through this situation. (It is interesting to note that more people have died trying to get to hospitals for other reasons under the lockdown than have died from the virus. It is truly sad.)


“Brother Jan,  Thank you for your continued prayers and support on behalf of the people of Uganda.  The need for food during the current COVID-19 crisis is great.  People are not able to move about and therefore are restricted to their localities.  Bags of rice or flour would go along way in getting our people through this time of difficulty.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Brother Keith Stensaas”

Pastor Paul distributing some of the food that ya’ll purchased for them. (PASTOR PAUL IS AN AMAZING PASTOR.  HIS LEGS ARE NON-FUNCTIONAL.  HIS MOTOR BIKE IS THE ONLY WAY HE CAN MOVE.  BUT STILL IS HE ONE OF THE MOST ACTIVE PASTORS I HAVE EVER MET.- OPERATION RENEWED HOPE.)

UGANDA - ORH-TELEHELP DURING COVID 19

PASTOR ZEBEDEE'S MINISTRY

In the picture on the right, Daniel Jones, PA, is in the top right corner with the orange shirt.  As Dan talks, he sees his patient with Pastor Zebedee who is translating.  The remainder of the picture is what Daniel sees as he talks to the lady and Pastor Zebedee.

This is the testimony of Pastor Zebedee,

"I started the aged ministry and I started it due to the encouragement I saw during your medical team that you brought in Kasese the love and care I saw in you to the sick, aged and helpless people, this encouraged me to start a new ministry at our Church and in our village called the aged and elderly ministry every year I always call them twice for aged conference and more than 100 elderly people attend and most of them have trusted the Lord as their saviour as a result of these conferences. And during this lockdown down i am visiting each one of them trying to encourage them, pray for them and live them with some gifts and some food to eat. And they have been blessed they have always told me that since they were born they had never seen a church like ours that cares and loves people like we do. I want to send you some of the pictures of my visit to these elderly people in my village showing them the love of Jesus."
 "Thank you, i am now connected with Daniel Jones and tomorrow he will try to call me and talk with at least one of the patients. Thank you for having but our ministry on your heart and thank you for getting us some that we will be in touch with."


"Wow, this has been a blessing, the old woman has been telling people who come to visit her about our church and the doctor who talked with her while seeing him on a phone and she has been telling them that since she was born she had never seen a church like ours which cares for the people.

And it was a blessing for this old woman to ride with me on my old motorbike 13kms to find a doctor who have some instruments that measures the blood pressure, temperature, body weight, heart rate and respirations, she felt so so special today, and praise the Lord I had a good time to share the gospel with her,

and today she has trusted Jesus Christ as her Lord and personal saviour, what a blessing."


"In addition to that  most of the people who attended the clinic that we had at Kasese got saved and some of them have been added to our church and some have gone to heaven to be with the Lord, and even now other people are giving testimonies that the medicine they got from you people while you were at Kasese has cured their sickness and diseases, and most people have been asking me about that program about the medical team, and now after people hearing from this old woman every one is now looking for me asking on how they might be helped with their diseases.

“Our story for Amazing Grace Food Pantry, ministry of Lake Milton Baptist Temple, begins around 10 years ago.

Joseph Project – KEITH STENSAAS – SEE THE MINISTRY FACE  IN UGANDA

In Uganda, the country is locked down.  This puts many people in a difficult situation with food.  Missionary Keith Stensaas wrote the following concerning the needs.
“Brother Jan, Thank you for your continued prayers and support on behalf of the people of Uganda.  The need for food during the current COVID-19 crisis is great.  People are not able to move about and therefore are restricted to their localities.  Bags of rice or flour would go along way in getting our people through this time of difficulty.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!”

He wrote about the expenditure of some of the funds already sent to him for Uganda.

“Brother Jan, We were able to get some money up to Pastor Kasajja there in Kaliro.  Attached is some of the maize flour he was able to buy for his people.  I will send more picture as I get them as things begin to loosen up there in Uganda. Thank you again for your giving to this need. Keith”

ORH has sent $1000.00 at this time to help with food.  Uganda will need more funds; pray that ORH will be able to continue meeting the needs of the churches.

Joseph Project – Derek Thomas – Ministry Face in Laos
“Hello Jan,  I received the following report of how the money was spent in Laos. A kip is 9500 to $1. We lost some money in the transfer. We are trying to get a clearer breakdown of why the cost were so high. It’s cheaper when we can send to Thailand and the pastor crosses the border and gets the money there. But right now they cannot cross to Thailand so the expense is a little more. I will send pictures in another email.”

Derek sent this message from the Laotian Pastors.

“The love gift that you sent to us is 4,245,000 kip, We bought rice 10 bags for 3,600,000 kip, noodles 10 boxes= 515,000 kip and eggs 15 panels = 490,000 kip, the total amount is 4,490,000 kip.”

LAKE MILTON BAPTIST TEMPLE TESTIMONY ABOUT COVID 19 FOOD PANTRY

Hello Bro. Jan,
Here is our testimony about the food pantry...


Our story for Amazing Grace Food Pantry, ministry of Lake Milton Baptist Temple, begins around 10 years ago. I was pastor at Mountain City Baptist Church where Brother Daniel Jones is pastor presently. Bro. Daniel started going on trips with Operation Renewed Hope and coming back and challenging us that there were two parts of reaching people, Preaching and also Caring. Jesus went about and helped people with the physical and spiritual. We truly only concentrated on the spiritual part.

God began to convict me about opening a food pantry. It did not come to pass in Tennessee, but when God called me to LMBT in Ohio the burden would become a reality. After praying about it for over a year God sent a man to our church that had the same burden. After many meetings we opened our doors in March 2019. 

We knew that they need to hear the Gospel, but also they needed to see the Gospel in us as well. So we treat everyone that comes as an honored guest. They all hear a Gospel message through a video and will be offered Gospel Tracts and prayer. We have had few professions, but we are called to care if no one is saved. No one knew much about our church in the community, but they are slowly hearing about the church with the food pantry that cares. We pray Christ will be glorified!

Since March 2019, we have gradually seen a growth of the number of people coming through the pantry each month. We started with 40 families coming through and last month during the pandemic we had 185 families go through. It is an awesome opportunity for our church family to play a part in outreach. We have on average 30-40 volunteers every pantry day. 



God has been so good to us to bring your ministry into our lives. Thanks for all you are doing here to the uttermost!

Matthew 5:14-"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid."-By God's grace we will be seen showing Christ's love.
