· Mar Azul Building Project
It’s that time of year…the season to give and celebrate all God has done for us. 1 Timothy 6:18 instructs us to BE RICH toward others through good deeds and by generously sharing our time and financial resources.
This year we are excited to partner with Mar Azul in Puerto Rico. In 2015, Hurricane Maria made a devastating direct hit on the island. Mar Azul church mobilized and stepped into action offering disaster relief efforts with their limited resources. In a time of despair, God used Mar Azul to provide tangible help to those in need for the purpose of furthering the gospel to the people of Puerto Rico.
God is continuing to expand Mar Azul’s ministry and influence in powerful ways. Their outreach is growing to new parts of the island, and they have begun the work of constructing a new campus in the storm ravaged Juncos area of Puerto Rico. The campus will serve as a community hub providing programs for adults and children alike. Meetings, music and art classes, a coffee shop and gym are just a few of the things the Juncos ministry will offer as outreach to this neighborhood that has suffered so much and is struggling to rebuild. Additionally, the Juncos building will be constructed in such a way that it can be used as a shelter and place of refuge in any future hurricane or weather events.
We are joining with Mar Azul this Christmas season to provide resources to help make this dynamic new ministry a reality in Puerto Rico. Together, we can serve as the hands, feet, and heart of Christ. Be Rich gives us an opportunity to be one body and make an impact by giving to others!
