Mission Trip to Puerto Rico - Vamo' Puerto Rico 2018 - COMPLETED!
What a successful trip! We had 25 participants! Praise God!
Puerto Rico, home of over 270 miles of beautiful beaches and amazing people, has recently endured some of the most devastating hurricanes of the past century. Hurricane Irma and Maria affected local infrastructure and destroyed thousands of homes leaving many Puerto Rican families in great need. Our Juntos group feels called to action now and for years to come. Our commitment is to not only help re-build the island, but to contribute to the spiritual revival of the island.
This year we are partnering with two organizations in order to make this trip a reality. The first organization, Amigo Ministries has many years of experience coordinating Mission Trips to Latin America and are very involved in advancing the Hispanic community in Cincinnati. Our second partner, Hunger Corp, is a Puerto Rican organization whose motto is "Because praying is not enough". Hunger Corp has years of experience in mission trips in addition to being one of the first local organizations to start sustainable rebuilding efforts in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. Our partnership will focus on efforts for re-building houses for families most affected by the recent hurricanes, in re-igniting agricultural efforts that will help feed tomorrow's generation, and in supporting affected communities through these re-building efforts.
