Puerto Rico hurricane floodingVolunteers with Samaritan's Purse are hard at work in the hurricane-ravaged Caribbean. 

"We're responding in Puerto Rico, Turks & Caicos, St. Martin/St. Maarten, Antigua, Barbuda, and Dominica," reports Brock Kreitzburg, who oversees the international disaster response unit at Samaritan's Purse.

A team of 63 people, he says, have delivered more than 425,000 pounds of relief supplies to those five islands after Hurricane Maria.

Samaritan's Purse volunteers continue to help in Texas and Florida following hurricanes Harvey and Irma, he tells OneNewsNow, and recovery will be a long process in the islands, too. But the relief organization is determined to serve people and share the hope of the gospel.

"Despite everything that you have put value in is gone," Kreitzburg says, "there's a hope in Christ that no matter what happens, He's steadfast and He never changes no matter what the circumstance is."
