They did not get hit as hard as predicted by Hurricanes Irma and Maria though the river we cross entering San Juan was up to the bridge. Solid Rock is asking for prayers for safety of teams coming over and that supplies be brought over by teams to not be confiscated by customs.
On Oct 15th our church will be taking up a love offering for our mission team to go towards supplies and help with costs.
We also set the remaining team meeting dates before our departure. They are at Grace Bible Church and after Sunday School (about noon):
*Nov 5 Survival Spanish
*Dec 10 and 17 pre-packaging and labeling vitamins and medications, packing suitcases (with supplies and weighing them)
*Jan 14 team commissioning (if it works with church schedule)
* Jan 19 meet at Grace Bible Church at 8am
* Jan 20 fly from Chicago to Dominican Republic
* Jan 21-26 at Guest house in San Juan de la Maguana
* Jan 27 fly from Dominican Republic to Chicago
We would enjoy the help of many on Dec 10 and 17 with counting, packaging, labeling the medications and vitamins. We also ask for your continuous prayer for our team and those we will be serving alongside with that our hearts minds and souls will be open to God's will and we follow His leading so that His love will be visible to those around us here at home, the airports, and our time in San Juan.
