CrossNet Baptist Network has mobilized more than 180 Volunteers on 18 DR mission trips to Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria hit. We have been working through a church in Guayama, PR to help their community recovery and rebuild. Now our efforts are focused on helping the “Church Without Walls” in Guayama repair their Church Sanctuary so they can have a “Grand Re-opening of their Sanctuary on Easter Sunday”. They have been without use of their sanctuary since Hurricane Maria hit 15 months ago.
