We left for Puerto Rico in May of 2017 with hearts to be used by God. We’ve always felt strongly that believers should be living as missionaries wherever they live. We expected our ministry to be serving in a local Christian school for children who are deaf as well as relational evangelism among our neighbors. We never could have anticipated that we would live through the devastation of Hurricane Maria and our ministry would turn into hurricane relief.
The rebuilding process has been slow, and many Puerto Ricans are still in great need. Just miles from our home there were entire communities without electricity, water, and other basic life needs, and the rebuilding process has been slow. God has opened doors for us to bring clean water, solar power, and the hope of Christ to these families.
God has unfolded now exactly what he has been preparing us for. Cross-cultural living in a Spanish speaking country, among families in need is where we always thought we’d be.
The miracles that God performed to save us from the hurricane and its aftermath, the amazing ways He has provided for our physical and emotional needs, and the perfect doors He has opened to serve, leave us with no doubt that we are exactly in the time and place of ministry that God has planned for us.
