Hurricane Relief for Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, and St. Martin
From Victory Church World Outreach
If you’ve ever wondered what the “World Outreach” part of Victory Church’s name meant, this might explain it.
Victory Church in Apopka is joining with El Rey Jesus of Orlando, to help receive and send relief supplies to the people of Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, and St. Martin following the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Victory will be receiving supplies until Wednesday, October 4th as the supply plane will be leaving for Puerto Rico on October 5th.
Doug Bankson is the Lead Pastor at Victory. He can identify and empathize with the victims of Hurricane Maria.
“We all know the frustration of going through the storms and the aftermath, and as Floridians, we have seen the best in mankind as neighbor helps neighbor,” he said. “But compared to all that we have faced, Puerto Rico and the islands surrounding have suffered a catastrophic loss, where there is no food or medicine to buy if you can make it to the store, and the entire power grid will take months to rebuild. This is why we are so happy to team up with El Rey Jesus as they have found a way to fly in supplies directly to those who have been hardest hit. Please join us as a community to extend a helping hand to the greatest need. When we give to the poor, we lend to the Lord; and He will repay.”
