Overwhelmed with what you have seen on the news this hurricane season?
I have been to, but I have hope in God and opportunities to help!
Here is a great guide on how to help in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria from our partners at the North America Mission Board:
The widespread devastation of the islands is unheard of. Government leaders have never experienced this before, and clarifying the exact needs is difficult. We are respectful of the government’s leadership; however, we are also pushing through to equip our churches in the island communities with essential resources like generators, chainsaws and water filtration systems.
Here’s how you can help:
- Pray. Ask the Lord for doors to be opened so we may respond to our neighbors in Puerto Rico. Pray that we may be able to access our churches so they can assist their communities.
- Consider giving. Information is available at SendRelief.net if your church would like to consider contributing to the costs related to responding.
A special note regarding volunteers:
At this time, supporting volunteers on the islands is challenging due to limited resources. This slows the recovery effort. This situation will change very soon, however, and we want to make sure the local residents are cared for first. If you would like to receive information when opportunities arise, let us know at sendrelief.net.
