Dear Friends,

JOSEPH PROJECT – Lake Milton Baptist Temple, Diamond, OH,  “Bearing Burdens”

Pastor Joseph Griffis of Lake Milton Baptist Temple gave a wonderful testimony about their Covid-19 ministry toward the people in their community.  His testimony begins years earlier than his present ministry.  Please read his testimony.

“Our story for Amazing Grace Food Pantry, ministry of Lake Milton Baptist Temple, begins around 10 years ago. I was pastor at Mountain City Baptist Church where Brother Daniel Jones is pastor presently. Bro. Daniel started going on trips with Operation Renewed Hope and coming back and challenging us that there were two parts of reaching people, Preaching and also Caring….”

Please go to this link to read and see the full testimony.

In Uganda, the country is locked down.  This puts many people in a difficult situation with food.  Missionary Keith Stensaas wrote the following concerning the needs.
“Brother Jan, Thank you for your continued prayers and support on behalf of the people of Uganda.  The need for food during the current COVID-19 crisis is great.  People are not able to move about and therefore are restricted to their localities.  Bags of rice or flour would go along way in getting our people through this time of difficulty.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!”

He wrote about the expenditure of some of the funds already sent to him for Uganda.

“Brother Jan, We were able to get some money up to Pastor Kasajja there in Kaliro.  Attached is some of the maize flour he was able to buy for his people.  I will send more picture as I get them as things begin to loosen up there in Uganda. Thank you again for your giving to this need. Keith”

ORH has sent $1000.00 at this time to help with food.  Uganda will need more funds; pray that ORH will be able to continue meeting the needs of the churches.

Joseph Project – Derek Thomas – Ministry Face in Laos
“Hello Jan,  I received the following report of how the money was spent in Laos. A kip is 9500 to $1. We lost some money in the transfer. We are trying to get a clearer breakdown of why the cost were so high. It’s cheaper when we can send to Thailand and the pastor crosses the border and gets the money there. But right now they cannot cross to Thailand so the expense is a little more. I will send pictures in another email.”

Derek sent this message from the Laotian Pastors.

“The love gift that you sent to us is 4,245,000 kip, We bought rice 10 bags for 3,600,000 kip, noodles 10 boxes= 515,000 kip and eggs 15 panels = 490,000 kip, the total amount is 4,490,000 kip.”
