Schweitzer News – June 19, 2018

Schweitzer UMCGeneral, News

Praying, giving, and going for the
Puerto Rico people

Vieques, a small island off the coast of Puerto Rico, received a direct hit from Hurricane Maria with the only hospital on this island of 9,000 destroyed. The Methodist Church of PR has plans to restore a church building and clinic in the town of Esperanza (Hope). Methodists across Missouri are sending teams to prepare buildings, provide medical access and resource supplies.

Schweitzer’s Response:

  • PRAY daily for these efforts, the congregation and Pastor Alex Gerena.
  • GIVE to provide a van for the transportation of mission teams ($25,000) by July 29.
  • GO. We are sending teams this fall and winter consisting of construction and medical people to serve. Tentative dates will be announced soon. Interested persons may contact Phil Grafft, Schweitzer Coordinator, ptgrafft@hotmail.com.
