An Opportunity for a New Partnership

by Jose David Figueroa Rivera | May 11, 2024 8:40 AM

Today is Sabbath and we wanted to visit a seventh day Adventist Church since we will be partnering with a different church on Sunday. We are visiting pastor Pablo Maisonet's church today. They are celebrating Mother's Day and we are excited to worship with them and hopefully be the start of a new partnership that can bloom for the future.
