Most of us probably remember the terrible hurricane that struck Puerto
Rico in 2017.
Hurricane Maria destroyed many homes on the island. Two of our
missionaries, we support through the Cooperative Program, were there.
Today in our prayer time we want to think about what happened after
Our church supports the North American Mission Board through our
Cooperative Program giving. One of the board's ministries is disaster
The board provided a generator to Jorge Santiago, our missionary in
Puerto Rico. Remember that thousands were without electricity after
So Jorge moved the generator around and helped many people by
providing them electricity. Many days he powered a local school. Other
times he took it to homes so families could do laundry. As he provided
them free power, he also told them how the saving power of the gospel
could be theirs through faith in Christ. Many people became Christians.
Now Jorge has started a new church and most of the members are
people he ministered to after the hurricane. It was a terrible hurricane
- but God helped good to come from it.
Let's pray for him and his wife, Rebecca, now.
