San Juan, Puerto Rico Mission Trip
March 9-15, 2024
AMO - Adult Missions & Outreach
Our partners this year are Primera Iglesia Bautista in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In 2017, the Caribbean Island of Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria. Over 40,000 families lost their roofs, their feeling of safety, their investment and security, and their homes. Estimates vary, but there are still more than 25,000 families that need help to rebuild and go on with their lives. For the past few years, our partners, First Baptist Church of Río Piedras, have hosted teams that have completed over 354 roofs and 8 houses. In addition to past and current hurricane damage, there are elderly poor in the area who need help with home repairs. Last year AMO flew down to help. We painted and repaired a house for a family in much need and were ourselves repaired and refreshed by the love we received. Our trip this year will continue with these wonderful partners as they work their way through the storm damage and poverty in Puerto Rico.
In addition to working hard, we will take time to enjoy the beautiful island, and of course, fellowship is happening 24/7. Join us! Contact Marianna Kilbride at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
