This is where our base of operations for the week. The actual work will take places in Aguas Buenas, PR. 

WHEN

The team will be down in Puerto Rico July 21-27, 2018.

WHY

It is our Christian duty to help others in need especially those within the Church since we are one body; one family. In Acts 11:29 we see that the Christians in Antioch were moved to send relief to the church down in Judea because of the upcoming famine. We have been called to send relief to the brothers and sister in Christ in Puerto Rico as they rebuild.

James 2:14-17 tells us that our faith without works is dead. We know we are saved by God's grace through faith in Christ alone. Our serving others, in this case, the Church and communities of Puerto Rico, is our faith put into action.  We do this because we believe that when we help someone in need as we will in Puerto Rico we are serve the Lord Jesus himself (Matthew 25:31-40).

Lastly but in no way the least, in fact most importantly we want to take this opportunity to share with all in Puerto Rico, the reason for the hope that is in us (1 Peter 3:15) that by sharing this hope, by sharing the Gospel of Jesus, the people of Puerto Rico will have a renewed hope firmly planted in Jesus Christ.  

HOW

How can you help? Glad you asked!

Please pray for the people of Puerto Rico. This is hurricane season again. We want to see a repose and break from the weather so they can rebuild and be stronger for the inevitable caribbean weather in the future. 

Pray for our team that we would have a smooth trip down and back. 
Pray as God has called us, that He would use us mightily to not only leave a lasting impact in PR but also that the Holy Spirit would open up doors; open hearts and minds to hear the Gospel of Hope in Jesus Christ.
