2019 April Puerto Rico Team, Day 5

Imagine staying in your home to ride out a category 5 hurricane – recorded as the worst natural disaster in history to hit your island – because there’s no place to go…

Imagine you’re talking on the phone to your mom when the conversation suddenly gets cut off, and you go three days without knowing she’s ok and another week before you hear her voice…

Imagine the longest blackout in US history and no relief resources…

Imagine having no access to your money in the bank, and you’re only able to buy food,  gas and other necessities if you have cash…

Imagine being “blessed” to be one of the few who has running water in your home, so you serve as an “oasis” for those who have no safe drinking water…

Imagine 18 hours of pounding rain and fierce 170 mile-per-hour winds battering your home – then there’s calm so you think the storm is over – and then 12 more hours more of that terrible constant wind and rain…

Imagine you’re the pastor of a church checking off names one by one on a list of your congregation when you finally get word they’re ok…

Imagine if these stories were yours… They are just a few of the ones we’ve heard from the amazing, resilient, gracious people we are serving alongside in Puerto Rico.

Looks like fun, it is! Consider joining a team and help rebuild Puerto Rico.
This is a small sampling of the debris.
Have you heard about the one about….

DIOS te bendiga! (GOD bless you!)
