Syrian Refugees – Lebanon Work

Dear Friends,

ORH wants to thank the churches and individuals who have given to help the work of Pastor Maher in Iraq and Pastor Dahdah in Lebanon to work with the Syrian Refugees.  ORH is thankful that many have heard the gospel and some have been saved.  Thank God also for Brother Sam Stricklin, and Brother Edgar Fehgaly who are true brothers of compassion for a hurting people without the gospel.

Below is a message about the work with the Syrian Refugees in Lebanon.  Pastor Karim Dahdah is now in the process of helping these people.  This is not easy since he faces the possibility of his own status becoming that of a refugee from ISIS.

Lebanon just arrested a “woman who is believed to be one of the wives of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the group's reclusive leader.” (CBS News).

Please pray for these brave servants and those “scatter abroad”.  Pastor Dahdah is giving the gospel and relieving the horror and suffering of displaced people.

Please read the email from Pastor Karim.

“Dear Bro. John, Thank  you for your direct reply and full understanding.  I'll follow your instruction as you've asked, and if you need some more information or photos, don't hesitate to ask.  All money will be used for Syrian refugee people.  Something to know that not all Syrian people live in camps. Some of them are renting small rooms.  I'll also sent you in the future some picture of their rooms.

Also now in winter, they are in great need of Diesel, for Heating. At least every family needs $100 /m, as you know Zahle and Bekaa- Valey is 900- 1000m high above sea Level.  So your 2nd project to us could be for diesel knowing that I can help from 50 - 100 family.  Please pray for that essential need as well.  Feel free to call me or contact me any time.  Pastor Karim”

If you would like to help these efforts in a most unique opportunity for the Gospel, please do one of the following.

If you wish to give by check, please make the check payable to Operation Renewed Hope, P.O. Box 43242, Fayetteville, NC 28309.  Mark the check for “International Relief.”

If you wish to give by credit or debit card, please go to and select “Network for Good”.

ORH will always be the voice of those people who are the “scatter abroad” as Jesus saw them.  May our eyes be His eyes.  May we see the multitudes as “sheep scattered abroad having no shepherd.”

Philippines Typhoon

Thank God that the typhoon was not as severe as the one a year ago.  At this time, we are assessing the damage, and what ORH should do, if anything.  The best we know at this time is that we should wait and not commit resources.  Continue to pray for these people.  If we think it wise to engage this disaster, ORH will send out another update.

God bless,
Jan Milton
