We hope that you have already visited our website to see the video of "Air Hope," and those who have contributed so much to "Haiti Hope." If you have not done this please go to www.operationrenewedhope.org and choose "You Tube."
The planes have not ceased to fly because food and materials are reaching the stores in Haiti. We are now changing our operations to reflect this welcome change. We want to say thank you to Anchor Baptist Missions Aviation program with Dr. Barton. We want to thank all the pilots who have flown for us such Jack Hunt, Dave Crispel, Dennis Conn, Kelley Hein, Frank Horton and others. We want to thank Dave Spangler and his ministry "Flying for God." We want to thank Terry Rushing and Bob Warnnier with "Wings as Eagles." Pray for these members of the "AIR HOPE" coalition. It was great to serve with these dedicated men.
One group of medical professionals wrote us to praise the pilots after 13 of their group were evacuated from Jacmel. As the pilots would deliver food they would pick up these people and get them back to the Dominican Republic so they could make their air flights home. They expressed great appreciation of the hard work, professionalism, and dedication of the pilots who brought them out. They told us that the pilots had saved them thousands of dollars because they did not loose their air connections.
I hope that you have been keeping up with the on-going work, and the spiritual efforts being made by those good people in Haiti. After the crusade held in Jacmel, Pastor Cherubin's church rose to about 400 people. One of the reports pointed out that the church people gave up their inside seats to the people standing on the outside. The whole church went outside so the new people could be in the church.
Tim Bower's family reported that after handing out a number tents flown in by "Air Hope" pilots, several were stolen. The people who were given the tents were so upset by the tents being stolen that they went through the village and found all the tents except four. They did not want to appear unthankful by letting the tents get away. Tim's family has expressed the need for more food. ORH "Haiti Hope" has guaranteed Tim $3000.00 for food. He is in the process of purchasing the food now.
A container arrived in Haiti for Tim Bower filled with tents and food after ORH directed a US Evangelist to his efforts. Evangelist Mike Peletier traveled to Tim Bower, and they held preaching services in a section of Port au Prince. Many people accepted Christ from this effort. Tim Bower was greatly encouraged and excited.
We are currently working on a project to move church families out of tents into solid structures. By Friday of this week you will receive a special message about these efforts. We are finalizing with veterans of Haiti ministry a plan we believe will make it possible for God's people to give a hand-up, and not a hand-out. Please look for this email in your message center on Friday of this week.
