As most of you know, our congregation has partnered with Sion Lutheran Church in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Our intent is to assist them with recovery from Hurricane Maria, help support their community outreach programs, and show God’s love through our friendship with them. In doing so, we are developing a bond that we hope will strengthen and grow over the years. We have had several fund raisers thus far, and have been able to send funds to support their community meals programs. We are also raising funds to help defray the cost of our Servant Trip planned for March 2020, in which we intend to refinish their sanctuary pews, replace a roof, and do other physical work as needed. Our children have offered their pocket and piggy back change, our women have made prayer bracelets, and we have signed and sent post cards, all of which met with considerable gratitude. We welcome all participation in these efforts, and invite anyone interested to join us on our mission trip.
There will be six joyful worker bees traveling to Bayamon, PR, departing March 3rd and returning the 10th. They will be staying with our Partner Church, Sion Lutheran, in Bayamon, and also traveling to the southwest part of the island that has been repeatedly hit with ongoing earthquakes, resulting in much destruction.
