WPD Workers Serve in Puerto Rico, More Needed

David and Jane Sampson spent the first two weeks of November serving with Brethren Disaster Ministries in Castener, Puerto Rico.

In January, Ric and Trudy Racine of Topeka will go for two weeks, and in March, Dean Holloway, Bud and Susan Taylor of McPherson and Curtis Rink of Wichita are scheduled.

Jane reports a wonderful time among warm, hospitable people in a beautiful setting. Jane served as cook for the group of seven and found many ways to use bananas and cook in a crock-pot! Another highlight for Jane was reconnecting with her college roommate Janice Groff who lives in Ponce, PR.

The other workers spent the first week roofing a house and were fortunate to attend a house blessing for the completed project in the second week. They also moved 400 cement blocks from one truck to another in preparation for another project and completed many small jobs.

The Sampson’s worked alongside other volunteers including a young man from the Dominican Republic who wants to be a pastor and who served as a translator for them.

Others who are interested in going should contact Terry Goodger at the BDM office. There are openings after April 12 and through August. Persons should be able to work in warm climates in a different culture. At this time, groups are limited to seven persons.
