In the year since Hurricane Maria swept across Puerto Rico on Sept. 20, 2017, The United Methodist Church has been sending prayers and support. The United Methodist Committee on Relief has contributed more than $20 million, allowing the Methodist Church of Puerto Rico to establish the Renew, Rebuild and Reconstruct (Rehace) program. Bishop Hector Ortiz of the Methodist Church of Puerto Rico expresses his gratitude.
A series of videos produced by Michelle Maldonado of United Methodist Communications shows the impact the church has had.
