This has been a demanding year and a destructive year because of the storms in the Atlantic. ORH cannot thank the churches and individuals enough for all the work teams and financial donations made available to ORH for the impact zone.
Last week, I enjoyed visiting with Pastor Roger Parrish and Western Hills Baptist Church in Victoria, TX, during their missions conference. In order to have their scheduled missions conference people provided lodging and RV’s for the visiting missionaries. The church was not damaged, but the area was impacted very adversely by the winds of Harvey. Damage was apparent in all areas of the town.
While in Houston last week, I visited with Pastor William Cover speaking in his church. Pastor Cover took me to the churches with which he had been working. Pastor Rick Shrader was a great blessing as we saw all the work that he was doing (see PDF).
Also, Pastor David Cripps of Victory Baptist Church was a great blessing. I visited his church, homes of members, and his home. All of the visits increased the awareness of the great need for work teams.
Thanks to Tim Barber for bringing several young men from his church in Mishawaka, IN. Thanks also to Cody Bill and his people from Southland Christian Camp for coming and working. Cody brought a trailer load of equipment to help Pastor Shrader.
ORH has now sent money to families recommended by their pastors in six churches providing at least $400.00 to each family. Sadly, more must be done for the over-powering needs.
