COUNTDOWN: DAYS HRS MINS SECS

Puerto Rico

As our Sisters living and ministering in Puerto Rico collected food, clothing and household supplies in early September 2017 to aid people on the island affected by Hurricane Irma, little did they know the devastation and calamity they would endure when Hurricane Maria hit on Wednesday, September 20.

The following are communications we received from them (click on the date to read them in full):
