Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

God has gifted each of us with specific abilities and resources in order to serve people and grow His Kingdom. We encourage you to find a place where you can plug in.

hurricane relief

The Colombian islands of San Andrés, Providence, and St. Catalina were hard hit by Hurricane Eta and Iota. Thousands of families on these Islands are still without homes or water.

For 24 hours, the 7,000 inhabitants of the Island of Providence had no electricity and no way to communicate with the rest of the world. Now, as images of the destruction emerge, authorities, NGOs and churches are working to provide aid. Fortunately, there have only been two deaths, but 95% of houses on Providence Island were destroyed and the remaining 5% damaged. Many were left without electricity or drinking water after the hurricane reached its full strength in the early hours of Monday morning. The Islanders were already reeling from the effects of hurricane Eta, which struck just few days earlier. The wind reached over 230km per hour in the eye of the storm, just 8km away from Providence. Hurricane Iota was the worst to ever hit these Islands, and the first category five hurricane, which is the strongest and most damaging hurricane. The hospital is too damaged to use, making it difficult to treat those injured in the storm.
 
Similarly in San Andrés, roofs were blown off houses and roads and power lines destroyed. The flooding and wind damage left 60% of the Island without power.

Our church has been connected to those Islands for many years. Dr. Edgardo Martinez-Mitchell, Minister of Missions and Evangelism and a native of those Islands has led numerous mission trips to San Andrés, serving in partnership with the Association of Baptist Churches. In response to the devastation experienced by the island inhabitants, we have created a fund where you can kindly make monetary donations that will be used in coordination with the Association of Baptist Churches in San Andrés and Providence Islands. The Association will use these funds to do their critical hurricane relief work. The Island churches will assist by giving guidance, hope, and comfort to the community, and work with families in developing recovery plans.
 
How Will Your Hurricane Relief Donation Helps the affected people on these Islands?
 
  • Help providing shelter, food, and clothing until families can return home. (People are being sheltered at the Baptist Camp)
  • Hand out water, food and emergency supplies to affected families and individuals
  • Help provide medical care for anyone in need
  • Provide medication, clean up supplies and Covid Items
  • Help provide any other needs that the churches on the Islands see vital to provide.
