CBS News Report "It's Raining Money & Drugs in Puerto Rico." They got this right.

We see these things a lot down here. Many is the time I have carefully stepped over a heroin needle while on visitation for our church. It isn't the drug I fear, but the AIDs virus that is very common on the island.

It isn't easy to work in Puerto Rico, but we are here doing the work.  The only thing that keeps us safe is your prayers and God's grace. What keeps us going is your prayers, love and support. Please keep praying!

Former student of mine, Héctor Alejandro Núñez Cruz doesn't have very good lighting in his church & it isn't finished, but he is baptizing a lot of people anyway. 

I love it when our students go and serve with what they have, instead of waiting for conditions to be just right.

What Pastors Do on Saturday...

The first Saturday of the month, I get together with our Puerto Rican Pastors. We have a time of food, fellowship, singing, devotions and then a time for us all to pray for our churches and each other.

It is a lot of fun spending time with people that love God, lead sacrificial lives and are usually a bit on the extrovert side of the personality scale. Tonight we had a missionary from Venezuela join the group and lead us in song.

I wonder how many realize how a pastor pours his heart out in prayer for his people? These do!

This pilot was scheduled to fly AA Flight 11, so he packed his bags and was ready to go. At the last minute he was bumped by a pilot who had seniority. In this 15min video, he and his wife talk about the emotional roller-coaster of that day and how it changed his outlook on life.
