Message from the Director
Dear CWM Friend,
December 10-17, 2017 found a group of 50 people embarking on what would be a life-changing and humbling experience. As decisions where made last year as to route and ports we would visit, I know that God was preparing the way for CWM to help in a very meaningful way. Grand Turks, Puerto Rico, and St. Thomas are three ports that were greatly affected by hurricanes in 2017. Hauling debris, repairing roofs, cleaning houses, and painting were some of the ways that our group was able to help these communities.
However, most humbling was seeing the faith and resilience of the locals--our brothers and sisters in Christ. Listening to their stories and, how even through the storm, they kept their eyes focused on Jesus, knowing that He would protect them and provide for their needs.
This year, I pray that we can put our trust completely in our Almighty God. Isaiah 41:10 comes to mind. "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." My prayer for each of you is that this promise comes true in your life this year. CWM thanks you for your continued support and prayers.
Wishing you a Happy New Year full of God's blessings,
Rabel Y. Ortiz
