After a long day of traveling, 8 out of 9 of us have arrived on this beautiful island! After we settled into our lodging, we went to Walmart for some supplies and some sweet treats. Now we are ready to rest up for the start of our week tomorrow!

After an amazing breakfast, we are joining the congregation of Iglesia Metodista Carlos Wesley in their worship service. We are so blessed to be able to praise the Lord with this congregation despite the cultural and language differences.

Out in the Community!

by Daphne Hiraldo | May 26, 2024 5:07 PM

After service, we are taking some time to walk around the community. We are taking the chance to promote the pampering activity we will be doing for the elderly tomorrow and a VBS that will be held at the church later this summer. It’s a blessing being able to get to know this amazing community.

Out in the Community!

Thank you, God!

by Heather Rivera Gonzalez | May 26, 2024 7:55 PM

As we wrap up our Sunday with an Old San Juan visit and evening meeting, we give thanks to God for allowing us this opportunity to serve Him in so many unique ways. Our time is best spent in His presence!

Thank you, God!

Organizing!

by Heather Rivera Gonzalez | May 28, 2024 7:01 PM

As some of us are wrapping up the painting, others are helping organize a few items around the church. As the church receives many donations, some of them can get piled up. We are glad to be of help in this area!

We are wrapping up the day by joining the congregation of Iglesia Metodista Carlos Wesley in their prayer service. We have been praying over the world, island, kids, youth and pastors under the verse Philippians 4:13. We are so blessed to be part of such a beautiful experience.

Praying over Pastor David and Marielys!

by Daphne Hiraldo | May 29, 2024 2:55 PM

Before we go enjoy the beach we are taking some time to pray over pastor David and Marielys. We are praying that the Lord continues guiding them as they do ministry and that He fills them with blessings as they embark on their new journey.

We are so thankful for all of the wonderful people who have made this week possible, especially Pastor Diego for providing us with lodging as well as the cooks who help feed us breakfast and dinner. God is good!


Hasta Luego!

As we prepare to return home, we reflect on this week. Our lives will never be the same. See you later, Puerto Rico!
Hasta Luego!
