Pakistan and Peru Updates

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

Dear Friends,

Pakistan Thank You

A few weeks ago ORH sent $800.00 to Sam Stricklin with MAP an organization working in Islamic countries to spread the Gospel.  Sam informed us of the needs of Pastor Ashar, Pastor Seral’s wife, and Pastor Arif’s son, David.  ORH was able to send the funds to help these men of God with their family’s needs.

Sam sent us their letter of thanks for all that was done.  The information below was listed in the “Praises” section of their letter.

“For God’s provision for Pastor Ashar Ayub’s home. Brother Ashar’s home was badly damadged by the flooding from the rain. Last month, he had requested for urgent help. The Lord heard your prayers and provided for the repair of Pastor’s Ashar’s home.  For God’s provision for Pastor Seral’s wife’s medical needs. His wife needed medical assistance for hernia surgery. Praise the Lord for the successful surgery and the financial provision.  For God’s provision for Pastor Arif’s  5 month old son, David's medical needs”

These are God’s choice believers in a very difficult and dangerous ministry.  Their entire letter was testimony to God’s work in the hearts of the people through their ministry efforts.  Pray for God to continue blessing them.

Peru Clinic Follow-up

Alex and Flor have been working in the Pillcopata area of the Manu jungle to follow up our work with the medical clinic which they helped to conduct.  Please read their latest report.  ORH sends them $250.00 to $300.00 a month by faith. 

“Beloved brethren, many greetings from the brothers in Pillcopata, Peru. Grace and peace to you all from our good God and our savior, Jesus Christ. Beloved brethren, this month of August has been one of many blessings, for we now have the help of another missionary family, who help us in the services by preaching. This also allows us to reach more people with the gospel and to spend more time discipling the brothers. The brothers here are very happy with the way God is manifesting himself in their lives. Many of them have seen the changes that the Word of God is doing in their own families: and all of this is thanks to God and also thanks to your prayers. On the hand, beloved brothers, during August we had to make a trip with my family to have a sonogram done for my wife in order to know how our second son is developing. According to the results, our son is very healthy, thanks to God, but my wife is the one who is having some complications. They say that she has placenta previa, which complicates things, but we trust more in God and his power. For this reason, brothers, I ask for your prayers, in order that God would be glorified in all of this. However, this means my wife needs to be in the city in order to give birth in Cusco during October. We just found out that the 30th of September there is supposed to be an indefinite strike by the all the coca growers in the area. This could go on for a long time, causing problems traveling because they would be closing all roads in and out of Cusco. For this reason I ask for your prayers in order that God in his sovereign will would intervene. Beloved brothers, during this month with the other missionary we are working on a plan for next year, and we have many goals and much confidence that God will direct our hearts and lives to do His work.   With all this I close, thanking you for each on of your prayers and for your financial help which you give us.   Sincerely, the Herrera Family, Missionaries in Pillcopata, Cusco, Peru

What a blessing to hear of their work and accomplishments.  Last month ORH sent an extra $1000.00 to help purchase a motorcycle type conveyance.  We are hoping to send $500.00 more shortly to finish paying for this small vehicle which they will fill bringing people to church in the Peruvian jungle.
