Though he's never been trained in military strategy or combat, our founder is doing his part to combat the advances of ISIS in Iraq. He's not fighting back with guns or diplomacy though, he's fighting back with healing.
Our 2021 15th Annual Banquet CanceledDear friends and supporters of Operation HOPE: Due to the cancellation of spring events at the Civic Center, we are forced to cancel this year's Operation HOPE Banquet. Thank you for your generous support over the years. Please pray about how the LORD would have you contribute to our outreach this year as we continue our commitments to Hope2Haiti and SnackPack4Kids in West Texas.
Although I haven't had a great deal of contact with Jarred Minefee since he headed to Haiti 12 days ago, he was able to post a handful of fantastic images online that I would love to share with you. My original intention was to wait until I was able to get more of a story about each of these images, but I realize that many of these are too powerful to be left alone until then. Within the first couple of days, Jarred had the opportunity to be involved in a crusade in Montrouis as well as a beautiful baptism service the next morning.
Texas Tech Red Raiders senior running back Baron Batch spoke to campers in July at Camp Extreme in Floydada. Batch is an active member in Operation Hope’s A.C.T.S. - Athletics for Christ Teaching and Services - a bible study for college students.
Although Dr. Thomas has been incredibly busy over the past few days in the nation of Iraq, he was able to send me a short email which I would love to share with everyone:
"Our trip so far has been very sucessful. We have performed about 20 surgeries and lot of patients are being seen. We are supposed to met President Barzani on Saturday. All is well!"
Considering the busy time that Dr. Thomas, the KAMC team, and the rest of the doctors have had in Iraq, I was thrilled to have gotten an update.
