"For You shall be a refuge to the poor, a refuge to the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm, a shade from the heat." (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 25:4) Praise YHWH all you people! What a mighty Elohim we serve! Yet again we are privilege to witness a HUGE AND AMAZING miracle from YHWH in preserving His Word - the HalleluYah Scriptures from certain disaster. We were in high spirits 2 weeks ago after cyclone Irma devastated much of the Islands surrounding and Puerto Rico it's self was damaged, yet where the fulfilment center and warehouse stands was spared which is where our largest US distribution center is located.
Then last week a category 5 Hurricane hit the Island and devastated the place leaving the entire Island without power and facilities. Much of the Island was flatten by the hurricane leaving many in desperate situatioins. We have been praying and many supporters have also joined us in prayer and fasting for the postal agent family and stock for over a week now and we had heard nothing till today...
Firstly our postal agent brother had to stand in line for 10 hours to get petrol, enough to travel to the main city to reach the highest point to be able to call us. We have been praying so much with a lot of pressure on the team not knowing what was happening but seeing every day the devastation all over the Island including a video that a drome took in the area where the stock is housed, it was all flattened. We wept before the Father as we are very close as a team and consider each other as close family. So it was painful to see the suffering on this island.
But Praise YHWH, the servants of the most High El are all in good health and spirit and the entire stock on the Island of Puerto Rico has been saved from any damage. Many of the buildings around our warehouse have been flattened and even one of our offices was torn to peices, yet the stock of the HalleluYah Scriptures and materials is preserved, halleluYah!
This is more of a miracle than you can imagine if you could see the warehouse where our stock is housed. We were saving funds to repair the building due to it's rather poor condition and the roof was in no way expected to withstand even a lesser hurricane or winds and rain, yet has now survived 2 hurricanes, praise YHWH all the more, halleluYah! Most would stand with their mouths opened if they saw this warehouse and what it went through.
If there was any doubt, we doubt no more, for we know that YHWH has His hand upon this ministry. We prayed that if the HalleluYah Scriptures was not a project that belonged to the Almighty and He was not happy with the project then now is the time to wipe it out and we would have understood that as this project does not belong to any man but to YHWH alone. It is His Name on the cover as He is the only author of His Word. But He had other idea's and ONLY He could stop a hurricane that big and by His power He did. We truly give ALL praise, honor and esteem to our Father and kindly ask you if you can do the same for He deserves it all. HalleluYah!!!
"As the whirlwind passes by, the wicked is no more, But the righteous, an everlasting foundation." (Proverbs/Mishley 10:25)
We have some prayer to consider, but first we must fill in a little background detail regarding the family stationed in Puerto Rico werving as our primary postal agents:
They have been with the Project since 2010 and took over as distribution agents in early 2013. In our experience they are some of the most humble and dedicated family who work tirelessly day and night handling the Father's Word, Since they have begun, we have had very few parcels go missing and efficiency is outstanding with up to and over 100 parcels going out per day on average and you can see some of these in earlier articles we have posted.
Being Puerto Rican, this brother is fluent in English and Spanish and having studied Hebrew, is heading up the team translating the Spanish HalleluYah Scriptures. His love for the Word is amazing and he is faultlessly exact in his dedication to an accurate translation in Spanish. He has been continuing this work even with the hurricane hitting his area and has been working on the Spanish daily not giving up. HalleluYah.
He fulfils both these rolls with the help of his family and does it 100% without complaint, no matter the situation also sending out huge bulk pallet orders monthly around the world and considers this service to be the greatest honor to be a part of sharing the Word of YHWH with those in need.
What we need prayer for is some support for him and his family as there is little to no support for them at this time on this ravaged island. We also need prayer and direction with regard to this distribution center.
Even before the storms we had contemplated and discussed the idea of acquiring a peice of land to build a solid warehouse, office with attached accomodation for the stock and this hard working family for security and safety in times like this, and land will probably be quite cheap now. We have never believed in buildings as they are used very little by people but we know this one will be used every day for His Word if it is YHWH's will.
The second option was to relocate the stock and family to the US somewhere, but we know that warehouse and rental is rather expensive by comparison, but this may be the only logistical choice due to the fact that it could be a long time till power and services and postal services are up and running again in Puerto Rico.
If, after prayer and input from supporters these are options, then we will need financial support, and ask that you all seek YHWH regarding these decisions in what He would want knowing that He has protected His Word twice.
We, as a team, work freely with no financial gain, and are dedicated to serving YHWH and His people through this amazing Project. We are open to suggestions and again ask that you pray with us at this time. If you have suggestions kindly share them with us.
A huge and special thank you for your prayers, fasting and support.
An update on our fulfilment center orders we ask that you be patient with your order at this time until the Post Office opens.
Here is some of the pictures of Puerto Rico, you can see the devastation and the huge miracle the project received. HalleluYah
Please keep Puerto Rico in your prayers.
