When Roy and Vilmarie Vidal moved from Venezuela to Villalba, Puerto Rico, they couldn’t find a church nearby. They attended a church far away from where they lived, but their pastor soon encouraged them to start a church near them.
With the help of other Puerto Rican pastors, they planted Iglesia Bautista Camino de Gracia in January 2021. The church focuses on building relationships with people in the community. They often send teams of men to local homes to share the Gospel and invite people to church and nearby home gatherings. The church has also been heavily involved in helping to rebuild homes of people impacted by Hurricane Maria. As they do this through Send Relief, they share the hope that can only be found through Jesus.
The Cooperative Program (CP) takes the Gospel to the nations and the neighborhoods. Your financial support through the Cooperative Program provides the resources that missionaries need to reach people in their area with the Gospel of Jesus.
Pray alongside the Vidals for more missionaries to help reach Villalba and other neighboring towns and that God would help the new believers at Iglesia Bautista Camino de Gracia persevere in their faith.
