There is still work!
Presently there are 2, count them, 2 sound churches in Puerto Rico. As you can see from the map Puerto Rico is a big island, 110 miles long by 40 or so miles wide, with close to 4 million people. Let that sink in--almost 4 million people and only 2 churches with perhaps 50 Christians between the 2. And only one man is dedicating his full time to preaching the Word there.
The 2 churches are both in the San Juan metro area; one is in Bayamon, which is slightly southeast, while the other is in Dorado, on the sea west of San Juan. There used to be a church meeting in Coamo (in the south central part of the island)but one family moved to the States and the other couple are too ill to meet. A brother and his wife live near Mayaguez in the extreme West and the church met in their home for some years, but he is now completely blind and so is unable to preach/teach.
Please pray for these brethren as they press on to the high calling of God. A group of us will spend a week there in May to preach and encourage them, please pray that the Lord will bless our efforts there, as there is so much work to do.
