Itamar Elizalde says Puerto Rico is an island that just can’t catch a break. In the past seven years, it’s faced an economic crisis, two major hurricanes, a political scandal, six weeks of non-stop earthquakes, and the COVID-19 pandemic. But God is using those great needs to open doors for the Gospel.
In her work as NAMB’s Send Relief ministry coordinator, Itamar mobilizes local churches and leads volunteer teams to repair homes and help people in crisis. She says, “The Lord has used tragedy to awaken the hearts of many on the island.” And so as she mobilizes these teams, she is able to connect and minister to local people in need of real, lasting hope.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program and the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering allows missionaries to not only impact the communities they serve, but also empower others to come alongside them in their mission.
PRAY for Itamar’s teams to share boldly as they meet physical needs, that hearts will be open to the Gospel, and for more missionaries to join the work.
