On Wednesday, September 20, Hurricane Maria, a category 4 storm, hit Puerto Rico with 155 mph winds and torrential rains. While Maria has officially passed, there are still very powerful winds and heavy rains. Flash flooding and mudslides could be more deadly than the initial winds from the storm.
Delia Nüesch-Olver, Area Director for Latin America, has been in contact with Free Methodist friends and colleagues in Puerto Rico. She reports that our colleagues, Supintendent Mercedes Reynoso and Pastor Dan Perdomo are safe and sound. Contact has not been made with all of the other local pastors. Please pray for the people in Puerto Rico and for our FM family in that country.
The Free Methodist Church will mobilize and use its resources to assist where most needed in response to Hurricane Maria. If you’d like to contribute, please do click to give to the Puerto Rico Recovery Fund.
