Hurricane Irma & Hurricane Maria Response

Over the last two weeks, multiple hurricanes have churned their way through the Caribbean, leaving devastation in their wakes. Our teams have been assessing damage from Hurricane Irma and are now preparing for Hurricane Maria, a Category 5 hurricane moving through the Caribbean heading toward Puerto Rico. Pray for the islands that will experience Hurricane Maria right after suffering devastation from Hurricane Irma. Ask God to grant BGR personnel wisdom and understanding as they respond to one hurricane after another.

Check this page for updates as they become available.
