Puerto Rico Relief & Rebuild Trip, March 24 - April 2nd
Uplifting a Church in the AIBONITO Mountain Interior
Northridge sent a team of 10 to repair homes, partner for Easter week outreach, and love our island neighbors. Last Fall as we prayed for devastated lives, God led us to Wilfredo and Glorimar Corps, and the Church they planted in the poorer island interior. Now at Reston Bible Church in suburban Wash DC, these Puerto Rican natives are reaching back to their homeland and the current Pastor of their church in Aibonito. Although this 100 x 30 mile island has finally restored most power, some of the interior still lacks electricity & reliable shelter. Roof / wall damage is not repaired in some homes, community facilities, and churches. The Prosperity Gospel and other twisted teaching have confused some in this crisis, wondering if God is near. With a strong, sacrificial sending base, God showed up during our week there! His power came through our stories of life storms, his Word was delivered with groceries and compassion, and wonderful local believers partnered with and loved us. We get the joy, God gets the glory!
