Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ, This June I will have the opportunity to accompany youth and adults on a Mission Trip to Culebra Island, Puerto Rico. We will be working with Jerusalem UMC and their pastor, David Andino. This mission trip will provide much needed assistance to the people of the island. Culebra is a small island about 17 miles off the east coast of Puerto Rico. There are approximately 1800 people that live on the island (~60% in poverty). God has given Pastor Andino a wonderful vision to serve this community in the name of Christ. Jerusalem UMC has about 35 worshipers and God is providing a wonderful opportunity to partner with them and help grow this ministry. I believe God has called me and our Church to Culebra to find these people that feel that they have been forgotten and share God’s love with them. We will be working with the elderly, (especially widows) performing minor construction to repair substandard housing and sharing the love of Christ. This will be my second mission trip to Culebra, I am excited and looking forward to building new relationships and discovering what God has in store.
