  • Puerto Rico 2024 proved to be a transformative time for our mission team members! 🇵🇷

Spending a full week in Puerto Rico, our students served Gloria and her family by reconstructing their house's roof, patching walls, and cutting down overgrown greenery and dead trees. Deep conversation and reflection filled our mission team's time together all while they experienced firsthand God's gift of living a life of connection and dedication.

Well done, Beacons! We are so glad to see our students' faith flourish and embrace lives of service. 
Thank you to our international partner, @forward_edge, for making this trip possible!
