We are thankful for all those who have joined with ORH to help others in need. Southland Christian Camp in Ringgold, LA, led by Mike Herbster is one of those organizations. Please read his report.
“It is the joy of Southland and ORH to host the Imani Milele Ugandan Christian choir in wake of the flooding in Houston. Several of their stops in Houston have been canceled and they had lost their housing because of it. This organization collects funds to help orphaned children in Uganda have a chance to get a good education and learn through a strong Christian environment. ORH could use your help to be able to be able to house them and feed them at this time. It is great that Southland has a place for them to stay and can provide the necessary meals for them during this time as well. Please consider what you can do to assist financially to meet this need.”
ORH is joining with Southland to help meet the need of these young people who are visiting our country to sing in churches. Pray all goes well and the funds are available.
Irma in Florida has left many in need. We are thankful that the loss of life was not as great as feared.
ORH representatives are on their way at this time to the south of Florida. Karl and Mary Catherine Steudl are almost in the middle of Florida on I 75 at the time of this writing. Their hope is to reach First Baptist Church of Westwood Lake in Miami. From there, they will be attempting to reach Pastor Tony Hammon in Islamarado. His church can work with the churches in the Florida Keys.
Brother Kevin Kelley is on his way now with 10 pallets of disaster supplies for the churches in the Keys. We are hopeful that he will be able to go all the way to Pastor Hammon. ORH is so thankful for Brother Kelley. He has a burden to help and puts the burden in shoe leather.
ORH along with Nehemiah’s Network will be shipping 30 pallets of water to Islamarado. Pastor Ryan Banman from East Park Baptist Church in Decatur, IL, called and told ORH of a truck driver in his church who wished to help. Thank God, Brother C.W. Burnett will be helping us move the 30 pallets from the warehouses in Cleveland to the churches in the Keys. Pray this can happen very quickly.
Thank all of you who have sent money or work teams. ORH is so thankful for the partners that never fail to work with our operations in the US and around the world.
If you know of any sheet-rockers, carpet layers, or tile workers available, please have them contact ORH about working in the Houston area. Operation Renewed Hope could possibly help with their costs. There are so many who need help. If you can volunteer time, please let ORH know.
Pray for our Caribbean brethren. ORH is pursuing those churches and individuals that need help.
