Rebuild, Restore, Renew - Puerto Rico
February 23 - March 3, 2020
Another rebuild team for Puerto Rico is scheduled for February 23 - March 3, 2020. Jack Cobb, the National Disaster Relief Coordinator, will be the team leader for this continuing cooperative venture with the American Baptist Home Mission Societies (ABHMS).
For the present, the team size is not limited. If ABHMS is unable to accommodate the number of volunteers available, another trip with an additional date will be scheduled when they have room for us.
Please remember you must register with ABHMS to participate in this mission team project. Just be sure to use Jack Cobb’s name as the team leader so they know you are part of an ABMen USA team. You may register at the following web site or contact Jack for assistance:
The ABMen USA Disaster Relief Fund is nearing depletion, beginning with the 2020 teams there will be a registration fee of $150. This ABMen USA $150 fee is to be submitted to ABMEN USA Treasurer, 223 Maple Street, Athens PA 18810.
As has been the practice thus far, each volunteer is responsible for getting to and from the San Juan, Puerto Rico airport. Thus the cost of the trip is now the price of your airline ticket and the $150 registration fee paid to the ABMen USA treasurer.
The Team leader will arrange vehicles for transportation from and to the airport and while on the island.
Please notify Jack Cobb as soon as possible if you intend to participate. It is critical that you notify Jack as soon as you have registered, so he can ensure proper transportation to and from work sites.
In spite of the uncertainty of disaster response funds, Jack is willing to coordinate a trip on any schedule that does not conflict with his other ministry obligations.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Jack Cobb.
