NewLife Church in Millville, New Jersey just gave us $20,000 to help us continue expanding the work of Teen Challenge of Puerto Rico. But then, this church is no stranger to abundant generosity. For example, they stood behind us during the hurricane season in 2017, donating 3 whole containers of emergency supplies for us to distribute to hurricane victims across out Island (that’s 120,000 pounds of love).
Today, NewLife Church threw open their doors and welcomed us in to take over the service. Pastor Rodney Hart, Teen Challenge of Puerto Rico President, gave a powerful Gospel message. Then Brian Poirier, Promotions Director of Teen Challenge of Puerto Rico, told the story of how God worked during the recent hurricanes (see the videos embedded below). He shared how long days and nights of grueling work – and a few miracles! – kept Teen Challenge of Puerto Rico not only operating and growing.
As we’ve been showing on this site, God allowed us not only to continue our core function of drug rehabilitation for young men after the hurricane; we actually have been doing more than ever before. From storm relief to community clean-up days, from homeless ministry to church outreach (and of course lots of roof repairs), we’ve been stretching and reaching out as never before. And while volunteers bring lots of help and support their stay, it takes real money to do all this! So donations big and small are so critical to moving forward.
Thanks so much to Pastor Richard F. Myers and wife Helen, along with the entire staff and congregation at NewLife Church. “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” (Psalm 133:1, KJV)
