2019 Puerto Rico Mission Trip
Last month, a group of volunteers from Hope traveled to Mayagüez and Ponce, Puerto Rico. One focus of the week was to construct a new pulpit and baptismal font for the Mayagüez congregation, whose furniture had been eaten by termites (comejenes). The volunteers were even able to salvage and repair the old furniture for use by the Ponce congregation!
Another objective included various repairs and improvements to the mercy center/community center adjacent to the sanctuary building in Mayagüez. In addition to the hands-on projects, the group engaged in multiple worship and fellowship opportunities with both congregations, which served as a great encouragement to the local missionaries and church members. Thank you to all who prayed, donated and went!
Please pray for the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod missionaries serving in Puerto Rico, that the Holy Spirit helps many to know Christ though their work. If you are interested in more information about how to get involved, contact Operations Manager, Hilary Tew, at
