Our Methodist sub-district has a date for a mission trip to Puerto Rico to help with their reconstruction - 3 - 10 Nov 2018!!  
Anyone from any Methodist congregation in this sub-district who has any reconstruction skills, from painting to roofing, and the heart to serve will be welcomed. The crew is limited to 14 people. Cost per person will be approximately $1300 ($500 for lodging, meals, in-country transportation, translation services and air transportation cost from SLC to San Juan ranging from $550 - $700.) .
Our United Methodist Volunteer in Mission (UVIM) organizers have cautioned that the environment there is still pretty crude - no electricity for personal use, bottled water for drinking and cold showers, etc. Workers need to be 18-yrs-old or older, in reasonably good health and prepared to work in hot, humid conditions. This is a link to the Volunteer Guidelines provided by UMCOR/UMVIM.  https://docs.google.com/document/d/11erTzdrvBu1p5EZKeCpztttze5kJNg03wyX795Jh7Fk/edit  
So if you’re interested, email Marilyn at whitemar@frii.com even if you aren’t ready to commit. We will have a lot of information to gather and disseminate before we fly.
