Haiti: Matthew Update

Friday, October 7, 2016

Dear Friends,

“Matthew” is now beating on Florida and could do so for a prolonged time.  ORH is waiting to hear about those in need.  Please send your information about needs.

The Haiti work continues.  ORH supplied $4000.00 for the needed efforts to help the families displaced by “Matthew.”  Please pray for Pastor Dieupie Cherubin as he and his church, Hosanna Baptist, help the people.

Mission for Haiti just sent this update.  Please read what Sarah Bennett has sent to ORH.

    “Well, the storm is past but there remains a ton of devastation – as everyone well knows. Over 200 houses have collapsed and dozens upon dozens of gardens and plantations have been wiped out. This will result in terrible hunger and excruciating misery for thousands in the coming months. Please pray about this.

    Today the shelters are beginning to thin out. Yesterday Hosanna prepared rice and beans for over 2000 folks in the shelters. Hosanna cooks prepared food from 7:30 AM until 8:30 PM. They prepared 2450 individual "carry-outs" for those who had not eaten since the storm hit. Pastor Dieupie has worked around the clock to find solutions for the many difficulties that surface during such crises. We covet your prayers for many who are homeless now and suffering from other physical difficulties.

    It turns out that Camp Bossier has had some damages that will need to be taken care of soon. Hosanna Radio had some antenna damages also. We hope to be back on the air in a couple of days.

    Again, we thank you for your prayers and your financial assistance. It has been a huge blessing to us.

Thank you,  Sarah Bennett,  Mission for Haiti, Inc.”

Please pray that Pastor Dieupie will have multiple opportunities to give the Gospel.  He had many converts from the earthquake a few years ago, and many were baptized.

Please download the PDF about the situation and work of Hosanna Baptist Church.

If you wish to give by check, please send the check to Operation Renewed Hope, P.O. Box 43242, Fayetteville, NC 28309.  Please designate the gift for your specific purpose.

God bless,
