"I'm looking for information on my mother, brother, daughter...." The voices of strangers reach out across a walkie talkie phone app seeking any information on loved ones, neighborhoods, services, the hospital. As we sit here eating popcorn and ice cream watching our children sleep and searching multiple sources online using our electronic devices for any information on the west coast or where to get food and supplies for cousins running short, the stark contrast in life as we know it and what our loved ones are experiencing is glaring. Imagine not being able to contact your son, parents, siblings for days though they are less than 100 miles away. Not being able to contact family to know if they are okay or even get to them though they are in the next town over is unfathomable. For those of you that know Ramón/Monchy, you know it's been hard to keep him from jumping in the ocean and swimming to the rescue. Or I should say jumping out of a plane flying over the island....more his style. It's hard to wait and wonder, but we don't know yet the full extent of damage or even the means to get things to our loved ones. But with estimates for the return of electricity and running water stretching into months, we know they will need the basics most immediately and much more long term - so let's help how we can! This fund will be used to send needed supplies (whatever they may be), money, plane tickets, whatever family members need. Give what you can and let's show the family we are standing with them as much as we can with our hands tied at the moment. And above all, let's unite in prayer and beseech our all knowing loving Heavenly Father on their behalf to make a way out of no way.

Most family members are okay, though we don't know the extent of damage as communication is so limited. We are still waiting to hear from a few.

We have heard from another cousin and her family and they are okay!

Some post offices are open, will be sending needed supplies today! We have only been able to contact one family to find out what they need since phones and cell service are still out. Very frustrating to have the means to send things are not be able to communicate that.

We were finally able to get in touch with the cousin we had been communicating with regularly. For several days after the storm. She had water restored a couple days after the storm, but then it cut off again last week and is still off. She has gone to a couple pick up places where water is supposed to be given out only to find that no one has ever shown up to give it out. Packages have been sent with food, batteries, flashlights, and hand sanitizer, but more is needed. Hopefully they make it to the right hands as theft has taken over. She knows people around her that have no food or limited supply, some with children so we are going to send things for her to give to them as well. None of this would be possible without your generosity. Please continue the prayers that God would work mightily through this and stretch what we have to meet the needs of many.

Thank the Lord two aunts and one cousin have electricity and some have clean water! Things are still not good for many, however. Some in the mountains are on well water so they have it, but it is contaminated and they can't use it, can't boil it with no electricity, and bleach to sterilize is in short supply. Food is hard to come by. Stores if open nearby at all are found short on product and high on price after waiting hours to get in. Some are relying on MREs being delivered by a local church. Disease is spreading quickly through contaminated water, mosquitos, and unsanitary conditions. Packages of food, but repellant, batteries, flashlights, lanterns, much needed medical equipment and more are being sent with your help. The needs are ongoing so please continue to pray.
