Gely Family Hurricane Relief

We are opening a fund to help the Gely family rebuild their home. They are my parents in Puerto Rico. The main items they need to rebuild are their road up to the home, the roof, and replace their water cistern. We will also consider purchasing a generator for power, given the current schedule for power not being until 2018.

My parents are pastors of a church and servants to their community. They are still without communications, water or electrical power. The storm took their source of potable water (their cistern) and eroded a good portion of the road to their home. My father is recovering from 50 stitches on his head from an injury while cleaning up debris. My mother has many health concerns which worry us since they don't have easy access to a hospital at the moment given the road conditions and the lack of communication. They have never asked for anything in return for their service to others, and I have always admired that about them. Let's help them in their time of need. 

Thank you for considering participating. God bless you.
