Pastor Don's Trip to Puerto Rico

Will you help me go to Puerto Rico to assist local pastors facing a long road of recovery following Hurricane Maria? On September 20, 2017 a Category 5 Hurricane stormed through the Caribbean leaving massive devastation in its path. The scenes, images, and stories brought back haunting memories of when Hurricane Katrina decimated our community here on the Mississippi gulf coast back in 2005. It took nearly a decade of relief, recovery, and rebuilding. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who suffered and are suffering through this. I want to help any way I can.

My good friend Mateo Melendez has been working with church planters in Puerto Rico for several years now. He knows the area, he knows the pastors, and plans a trip down in the middle of November. He said, who better to go with him than someone who has walked in their shoes? So when he asked me to go, I jumped at the opportunity. I pray that my story and experience will encourage these pastors and their people in their task to magnify the glory of God in the wake of the storm.

We will also be scouting out opportunities for you to make future mission trips to the effected island. We want to provide immediate help and create long term partnerships where we can do the most good. I'll be reporting on the trip through our Rebuild Lakeshore  website and Facebook page. We covet your prayers. If you can help financially with my trip, please contribute and share with others.
