Over the last three years, the island of Puerto Rico has endured a litany of tragedies. Hurricane Maria brought devastation in 2017. Toward the end of 2019, earthquakes began rattling the island that continued into 2020. Then, the COVID-19 pandemic hit an already struggling economy.
The challenges have made the work of Send Relief missionaries Jonathan and Yesenia Santiago all the more important. Unfortunately, it has also meant that the Santiagos and the churches on the island have been in near constant response mode. The Santiagos also direct the Send Relief Ministry Center there and consistently meet needs and reach out to neighbors through compassion ministry.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program helps missionaries like the Santiagos build long-term relationships, share the Gospel, and meet the needs of people who suffer tragedies, loss, and hardship.
PRAY for Puerto Rico as hardship and needs persist and also for the Santiagos as they continue organizing and fueling the ongoing ministry on the island.
