(Worthy News) - Churches are an essential part of the recovery process for Puerto Rico and Mexico, say representatives from the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and Convoy of Hope regarding reconstruction efforts in the two countries following this month's earthquakes and Hurricane Maria.
On a teleconference held Wednesday afternoon, NHCLC President, the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, spoke about the launch of a charity effort called "Puerto Rico and Mexico Rise Up," which seeks to equip churches to help communities in Mexico and Puerto Rico recover from the recent natural disasters.
"This is our campaign on behalf of our churches, on behalf of our chapters and our networks, both here in the States and outside of the States for that matter," Rodriguez said. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
