While many Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers from a number of TBC churches have been working in various places in Tennessee in response to the flooding that struck the state in February, other DR personnel have been continuing to work elsewhere around the country and in Puerto Rico and Dominica.
Here’s a look at just some of the projects and recovery efforts that are taking place:
