Meals for our Seniors In St. Croix!

Dear Friends,

I am serving as a missionary pastor in St. Croix, United States Virgin Islands. Two nights ago we escaped  Hurricane Irma and catastrophic loss due to the effectual and fervent prayers of many around the world.

Yesterday morning we found out that our sister islands of St. Thomas and St. John suffered great destruction and loss of life. They are still discovering bodies even now.

In my prayers over the last 24-36 hours, the Lord has given me clear instructions to assemble a team of 12-15 to go and help on the ground in St. Thomas and St. John.

We need help here in the USVI! We know that many are in Texas, Puerto Rico, and preparing to support Florida. Please know that we are praying and supporting them too.

Our team is paying our own transportation and expenses. I am asking for your support with purchasing food, water, and any other resources for thousands affected.

100% of your giving will go towards purchasing and preparing meals, supplying basic toiletries and personal needs, and supporting first responders, senior citizens, and children in need. We will be serving all needs from dawn to dusk for several days and weeks with your help.

I have started the withdrawal process today and I will be receiving the funds in my name and placing all that you've donated into the care of those who are designated to purchase all of the food. 

I also welcome others from the states to join us. Please contact me by return email if you feel led to travel to USVI and be a part of our ministry team in St. Thomas and St. John.. I know this is a last minute urgent request and your quick response is appreciated.

Please give what you can from the heart! 

You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus. “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:25

Pastor John
