Rebuilding for the Glory of God
September 19, 2017, is a day no Puerto Rican will ever forget. Hurricane Maria hit the island with 155 mph winds, causing catastrophic damage totaling an estimated $91.6 billion and claiming the lives of many Puerto Ricans. The Free Will Baptist church, pastored by José Correa, was not exempt from the devastation. The building sustained significant damage, including the loss of the entire roof from the sanctuary and the destruction of the parsonage.
Thanks to God, who never leaves or forsakes us, in the midst of these past few months He has been on the move in the hearts of Free Will Baptist people on behalf of Puerto Rican brothers and sisters. Through generous gifts to disaster relief and with the help of a group of South Carolina Free Will Baptists, the church now has a new roof on the sanctuary and a new bathroom.
Please continue to pray for our brothers and sisters, for much work remains to be done, but we know we serve the God who can meet every need.
