Please pray that Puerto Ricans would see that surrendering to God and accepting Christ in their lives brings true joy and in this the can celebrate God working in their hearts and minds.
I don’t know about you all, but all of the “island hopping”, is making me desperately long for a vacation. Could be the 3 little people I have running around me these days too, though.
