Today we had the great honor of meeting the mayor of Loiza. Dr. Julia Nazario shared with us a lot about her community of 29,000 people. Loiza is a very festive place, with heavy cultural influence from African and Spanish decendence.
This municipality was heavily impacted by both Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The 7 months after the storms has made the mayor extremely sad and frustrated. There are anywhere from 800-1000 people still living without roofs, and over 300 homes were completely destroyed by the storms. This is very alarming as the next storm season begins in only 2 months.
Please pray for the mayor and those who work at city hall, that they would make wise decisions to support their citizens at this time. And pray for the people of Loiza, many who still live in conditions that are unimaginable.

Enjoyed looking and reading the activities the group participated in. I live in the states and have family in Puerto Rico and would like to know how I and a few members possibly can participate at the site only. We will fly to Puerto Rico and meet up with you there. We would be staying with family members in a near town and go to the mission site daily from where we are with family if it is possible. If not is it possible for you to connect us with a church that is in need and we could serve them on a regular basis.
