Joining Hands to Reach a Hurting World

Puerto Rico Relief & Recovery

You can come around Alliance churches in Puerto Rico as they show Christ's love.


“Puerto Rico is very beaten. It will take months and a lot of work to get us back on our feet,” says Rev. Javier Gómez, superintendent of the C&MA Puerto Rico District. “I could not hold back the tears, many people are scared and suffering. May God make us strong and help us to use this opportunity.”

Hurricane Maria made landfall early morning in Puerto Rico on Wednesday, September 20. The Category 4 storm battered the island completely knocking out power. Streets, bridges, homes, and churches have collapsed.

Our team is currently working with two disaster coordinators in Puerto Rico, who are assessing and prioritizing needs. They are gathering input from pastors in each of Puerto Ricos’s six regions.

With your help, we have purchased a satellite phone, water filters, solar chargers, and other needed items that have been given to the district. We also sent funds to be distributed throughout the six regions to help people purchase food, fuel, and water. Will you continue to join us as we work to help rebuild Puerto Rico?

You can come around a family of 63 Alliance churches in Puerto Rico as they show Christ’s love to their hurting island.
