We joined Iglesia Metodista Carlos Wesley with Pastor Ruben for worship and a devotional in the morning. We got to be part of a special father’s day service where they were given thanks for all they do. Two Team members were able to give their testimonies to the congregation which brought a tremendous impact to everyone. We are very excited to be partnering with this church this week!

As we ended our prayer walk around the community, the Holy Spirit lead us to pray for Pastor Ruben who is the pastor of Iglesia Metodista Carlos Wesley. We prayed for both him and his family as we know that pastoring a church is not easy and it can be at times a difficult challenge to bear. We are praying that as we partner with this church this week, we can be a great blessing to everyone in the church and in the community.

As we were working on finishing the foundation, we had the opportunity to meet, connect and pray for Maria who will be living in the house once it is built. We were able to speak with some of the community members who were negatively affected by the hurricane and listen to their stories, we were greatly impacted by their testimonies.

Today we partnered with some local community leaders in Galateo, Toa Alta to have a community clean-up where we took time to pick up scraps and trash that we’re scattered due to the hurricane. Afterwards, then we were able to talk to some of the local residents to hear their stories of how they were affected by the hurricane.

After a long week of ministry and working, we had the opportunity to be tourists for the day! We visited the fort and the castle of Old San Juan as well as the city itself. We wanted to give everyone the opportunity to take a day of rest after the week and being able to explore the rich history and culture of Puerto Rico. Today is our official last day here and we couldn’t be more grateful for what the Lord has done these past of couple of days with each and one of us. We hope to learn from this experience and being able to serve the ones who are in our local community. It will be an unforgettable trip!

After a week of ministry, we say a huge goodbye to ELY Young Life! Their heart is full of love and unity and a desire to serve God’s people. We were able to know them better than we did when they first arrived. We know that when they go back, they will carry a testimony and the heart to serve the local community at ELY, Minnesota.
