Puerto Rico – Stand in the Gap! ¡Haga la Diferencia!
Iberoamerica and the Caribbean
GoalInternational Ministries seeks to raise $180,000 to fill the gap for IM missionaries impacted by the Puerto Rican hurricanes
SummaryHurricanes Irma and Maria struck the Caribbean islands during Puerto Rican Baptist churches' annual fundraiser for global mission, leaving them unable to provide financial support for their local missionaries. International Ministries is asking donors to stand in the gap for Puerto Rican global servants by making up the difference in support.
DescriptionIn the face of the devastation of the Puerto Rican hurricanes, IM global servants from Puerto Rico, especially Ingrid Roldán-Román and Madeline Flores-López, have been working in the early relief and recovery efforts and will continue to play a supportive role in the efforts of the Iglesias Bautistas de Puerto Rico and the American Baptist Home Mission Societies to rebuild, restore and renew Puerto Rico for years to come.
Right now, IM's dedicated Puerto Rican global servants need your help because the hurricanes blew a hole in the annual fundraising efforts through which Puerto Rican Baptists provide crucial support. People throughout the Caribbean and the Americas are counting on the ministries of these global servants, and IM is counting on you to help fill this financial gap so these ministries are uninterrupted.
You can enable their vital ministries in the name of Jesus Christ to continue, despite the impact of the storms. With your special gift to support global servants from Puerto Rico, you can come alongside both the missionaries and their supporters, to stand in the funding gap created by the hurricanes. IM is appealing to our long-time friends to make an additional gift above and beyond what you so generously do already, to help close the gap of $180,000 created by the water and winds of Irma and Maria.
Prayer RequestsPlease pray that funding will enable these vital ministries in the name of Jesus Christ to continue, despite the impact of the storms. With your special gift to support global servants from Puerto Rico, you can come alongside both the missionaries and their regular supporters to stand in the funding gap created by the hurricanes.
Please stand in the gap by praying and giving in support of IM's Puerto Rican global servants:
