Puerto Rico Mission Trip - 7 Days

San Juan cityscape

In late September 2017, Hurricane Irma and Maria whipped through the U.S. island territory of Puerto Rico with tornado-level winds, that brought intense flooding, crippling communications, and the destruction of countless homes. With the whole island affected, the relief and recovery efforts have been slow to start and will be needed on a massive scale for some time. Pastors are now faced with the difficult challenge of assisting and ministering to their communities with limited resources. Whether you are a teacher, doctor, member of a professional organization, college student or someone looking to travel with friends and family our staff will work with you to ensure that your unique gifts will be used to meet a real need while you are on the ground serving in the Puerto Rico.
