Haiti/North Carolina Update

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Dear friends,

The impact of Hurricane Matthew is not over; it is just beginning.  Pray for the work of ORH.

Haiti – Air Hope Mission

Currently, ORH is attempting to station an airplane in Jacmel, Haiti, so we can fly missions into Jeremie and other areas.  Pray we can find a twin-engine aircraft to go from the US to Haiti.  We need the pilot to stay for at least 7 days starting October 17, 2016. 

Our pilots with twin engine aircraft are involved in already scheduled meetings and will not be available for at least two weeks.

North Carolina

In North Carolina, ORH has been informed of one widow lady whose house has been flooded in the LaGrange area.  Pray that ORH will be able to help her with her needs.  This lady has been extremely faithful to the Lord.

The problem with Hurricane Matthew in North Carolina is the flooding stages of the rivers.  The rivers have not crested so we cannot determine the full impact.  The Neuse River, Goldsboro NC is presently over 10’ above flood stage and still has not crested.  The Tar River, Greenville, NC, is about 10’ above flood stage and still has not crested.  The Neuse River, Kinston, NC, is about 9’ above flood stage and still has not crested.  The Lumber River, Lumberton, NC, is almoat 8’ above flood stage and still has not crested.

When the information becomes available, ORH will begin a process of attempting to help the people.  A sister organization has 30 locations which are being monitored and could be potential areas to work.  Faith Christian School in Goldsboro has already reported that their kindergarten building is flooded.  We hope to know something within 24 hours as the people are able to report their needs.

For your prayers, we say thank you.

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,

Jan Milton
