Hola Puerto Rico!

by Christian Rivera Gonzalez | May 19, 2019 8:54 AM

We arrived at 5:15am, and went straight to bed. After some z's, we joined Carroll Christian Schools for some pinchos on the beach! They were very tasty. Afterwards we went in a ride around Old San Juan. We also got our last member that flight was delayed. Tomorrow we'll be participating on the church service. We are ready to do God's work!

Today's visit to the nursing home is a huge blessing. They are so happy. We enjoy spending time with them. We sang, read the Word, shared some testimonies and played some Puerto Rican games. And they prayed for us too. Thank God for this beautiful opportunity.
