Puerto Rico – or “rich port.” Is a small island but it’s the run capital of the world. English is the official language. About 70% is Roman Catholic yet thousands need to hear the true gospel of Jesus.
Into this culture, we introduce Itamar Elizalde.
Economic crisis, devastating hurricanes, relentless earthquakes and, most recently, a world-wide pandemic – the residents of Puerto Rico live in crisis mode. Many have little-to-no hope. It was on a short-term mission trip with her church that God broke Itamar Elizalde’s heart for the island and called her to stay. On Day 3 of the #AnnieArmstrong Week of Prayer, we’re praying for Itamar as she leads mission teams and coordinates with church plants to meet needs and boldly proclaim the message of gospel hope to those who have none.
Every penny. Every dollar given to this mission offering goes directly to work on the mission field. All administration costs are already covered. Wow.
When we reach North America with the gospel, we are reaching the world. As we launch a new season of giving to the #AnnieArmstrong Easter Offering, we’re excited to share the missionaries’ stories and see the generous ways our church family gives this season!
