    American Baptist Women’s Ministries (ABWM) seeks to raise $10,000 by the end of February to support  Ministerios de Mujeres Bautistas de Puerto Rico (Baptist Women’s Ministries of Puerto Rico). In January, 6.4 and 5.9 magnitude earthquakes and subsequent tremors shook Puerto Rico leaving thousands of people homeless and in shelters. More than 2,000 people are displaced. The earthquakes in Puerto Rico on top of Hurricane Irma and Maria in 2017 have damaged parts of Puerto Rico’s infrastructure and access to basic provisions. Since the 2017 hurricanes, American Baptist Women’s Ministries collectively raised nearly $15,000 to support Ministerios de Mujeres Bautistas de Puerto Rico.

    When the month of February arrives we immediately think of Valentine’s Day, which is February 14th.  It’s a day set aside to tell our loved ones just how much we care about them by giving them a special card, a box of chocolates, or a bouquet of flowers.  Did you know that February is also “Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month?”  The purpose is to inform teenagers about abusive relationships and how these relationships can affect their emotional and physical self.
