In 2017, Hurricanes Maria and Irma caused substantial damage in Puerto Rico. UMVIM is now joining with UMCOR to help rebuild in the area. The North Carolina conference UMVIM committee is going to be leading two mission work teams to Puerto Rico this year to assist in that effort:
First team: August 16 – 23 2018 led by John Benson
Second Team: November 3 – 10 2018 led by Rob Pavone
Cost per trip per person is $525 plus airfare (currently running around $350-450 roundtrip).
Each work team is limited to 14 people, must be 18 or older to participate (18 to 21 yr olds require notarized power of attorney and permission to travel document from parents), and must have a background check and safe sanctuary training through your church.
No passport is required since this is a US territory but a valid driver’s license, or a passport, is needed for travel.
If interested please contact the designated team leader via email:
August trip: John Benson – firstname.lastname@example.org
November trip: Rob Pavone – email@example.com
