This spring he became the owner of a brand new home built by volunteers from Adventist Agency for Development and Resource Assistance (ADRA) and World Renew Disaster Response Services (World Renew DRS).
The weather in Puerto Rico was hot and humid while volunteer teams were at work on the house, but they were serving and sweating for the glory of Jesus, the Ultimate Servant.
World Renew DRS reconstruction work in Puerto Rico is ongoing this summer. In July, a World Renew DRS reconstruction team is working in the Fajardo area and on the west side of the island between Aguadilla and Rincon, repairing homes damaged by Hurricane Maria. World Renew DRS also recently awarded a grant to a Fajardo congregation to support their recovery efforts in their own community.
Recovery from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico will take a long time, and World Renew DRS is committed to the journey.
“We are working with local organizations in Puerto Rico, and they are expressing compassion for their neighbors. We are thankful to be welcomed into local communities and to rebuild homes with community members,” said Bob Laarman, World Renew DRS director.
