Puerto Rico hurricane floodingThe long road to recovery for hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico continues and a Christian relief agency is continuing to help. 

Emergency relief efforts are still ongoing in the U.S. territorial island in the Caribbean according to Samaritan's Purse

Brock Kreitzburg, serving as response manager for the relief charity headed by Franklin Graham, says they're still providing tarps, clean water and generators. Samaritan's is also receiving supplies and food from FEMA then distributing the items through the local church to the communities.

"It's an opportunity for us to support the local church," he says, "that then reaches out to the communities that they have already established relationship with that they can support them in a time of need."

Kreitzburg tells OneNewsNow that some church buildings were damaged during the storms but the body of Christ has rallied together to serve.

"Though there have been damaged communities," he says, "I feel like the churches are stronger now, that they want to show the love of Christ both in how they're serving the community in what they do and also in what they say."

Samaritan's Purse has also launched long-term rebuilding programs in the hard-hit Caribbean islands of Antigua, Barbuda, and Dominica.
