Partnering with Puerto Rico
ABWM of Pennsylvania and Delaware
2019 Regional Project
With the recent devastation in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, you may be
wondering where to begin helping and how to help. We have something special to share with
Iglesias Bautista de Masas II Gurabo’s congregation of around 20 people live in a small rural
area in the mountains of Puerto Rico. Being a new church plant from the larger city of Gurabo,
they were excited about their new church building on the mountain side. After Hurricane Maria
swept through their country, all that was left of their little church was the concrete bathrooms,
and even that had no roof left. This small church that had been built in 1996 lost everything due
to the devastating power of Hurricane Maria.
The American Baptist Women’s Ministries of Pennsylvania and Delaware are coming along
side to help rebuild their church. The project is going to take many years to complete, because
it is a ‘from the ground up service project’ where everything will have to be replaced.
Your Leadership TEAM is very excited about this project and how it was handpicked
especially for us! We are blessed to be able to raise money for this project AND we will have
many opportunities to be the hands-on work teams in mission to Masas.
