Exciting news! We are thrilled to announce that our April $20,000 Give it All Away Gift is going to the La Perla Project in San Juan, Puerto Rico, founded by one of our former pastors, Raúl Latoni. As an organization committed to empowering people to live and love like Jesus, we couldn't be more excited to support their impactful work.
Situated in the vibrant heart of Old San Juan, La Perla carries a rich history and an indomitable spirit. Despite the challenges it faces, this community has blossomed into a cultural hub, attracting visitors from all walks of life. However, throughout the years the community has grappled with economic and infrastructural obstacles that have hindered its growth and potential.
The La Perla Project aims to be a beacon of hope for this community and is already in motion, beginning with Raúl's recent relocation to Puerto Rico in March. His vision encompasses multiple initiatives, including an after-school program, community care programs, service missions, a daytime program for seniors, collaboration with local organizations for maximum impact, and sharing the gospel in a powerful and practical way.
By providing essential services to the homeless and those in need, these efforts aim to foster unity and support within La Perla.
Through this grant, we are able to help address the practical needs and requirements of the La Perla Project.
This funding will be allocated towards essential supplies and resources, including vital provisions like WI-FI, air conditioning, food, utilities, and more. By investing in these fundamental elements, we ensure that the project can operate smoothly and effectively, enabling Raúl and his team to make a lasting impact on the La Perla community.
We'll let you know when there are upcoming global outreach trips to La Perla and more ways you can support this great ministry.
